The War On Men Continues with Oboma Care

We have a quick video here of Senator Barbara Boxer claiming that a goverment shutdown and the impending “Not Funding Obama Care” is a “War on Women.

war-on-women

“Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) says a potential government shutdown would be especially harmful to women. Boxer says Republicans have targeted a part of the Affordable Care Act that benefits women’s health.”

“The Women’s Health Ammendment…” “…and I want to tell you what those benefits are that they are stopping.  Guaranteed affordable birth control, screenings for cervical cancer, screenings for sexually transmitted diseases or STD’s, screenings for pregnancy related diabetes, screenings for domestic violence, breast feeding counsiling and supplies.”

I was curious so I did some research.  I could find no “Men’s Health Amendment”.
On the individual pieces:

Guaranteed affordable birth control – available for women, but men are not mentioned anywhere in the document for the same entitlement.  Not Available For Men

Screenings for cervical cancer – available for women, however prostrate screening is not included for men.  Just to be clear, from Cancer.org:

“Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer.”

How common is it?
Cervix cancer is rare in this country today because most women get regular Pap tests.

So to be clear, women will have screening for something rarely found, but Men Will Not be screened for our #2 cancer killer.

Both men and women have access to the STD screening.

While men will not have a pregnancy diabetes screening, we still have “diabetes” screening.

Screenings for domestic violence - ONLY FOR WOMEN

This is a travesty, as many reports have shown that WOMEN ARE JUST AS GUILTY of domestic violence as men.  Current reported cases from the Department of Justice:

“nearly 1.3 million women and about 835,000 men are assaulted by their partner every year in the United States.”

That means of the claims, 61% were against women and 39% of reported cases were against men (we say reported for both as this was a claim, and the accused may have been found innocent) of being assaulted by their partner.

But if we dig a little deeper we find that many domestic violence issues against men are not reported.  This is starting to become more evident the more the DOJ digs:

“Between 600,000 and 6 million women are victims of domestic violence each year, and between 100,000 and 6 million men, depending on the type of survey used to obtain the data.” – (Rennison, C. (2003, Feb).  Intimate partner violence.”  Us. Dpt. of Justice/Office of Justice Programs.

I am so proud guys, this is the first time I have ever seen any official agency actually imply that we, as a species, may be equal in domestic violence.

Breast feeding counseling and supplies – only available for women and I can understand this one.  I do suggest men be given an equivalent pump.

My thoughts are this; if NOT funding The Laughable Affordable Healthcare Act is a “War on Women” then wouldn’t funding this same act be a “War on Men”?

In truth, it really would be a War on Men IF the females received extra services (which we just proved) and the male payment part increased by a larger percentage than the woman’s.  But that wouldn’t happen, would it?

Obamacare Will Increase Avg. Individual-Market Insurance Premiums By 99% For Men, 62% For Women

Damn it!

So men will pay more and get less. animal-farm

When exactly will the equal rights between the sexes kick in?

“Years pass, and the pigs start to resemble humans, as they walk upright, carry whips, and wear clothes. The Seven Commandments are abridged to a single phrase: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”. Napoleon holds a dinner party for the pigs and local farmers, with whom he celebrates a new alliance. He abolishes practice of the revolutionary traditions and renames the farm “The Manor Farm”. As the animals look from pigs to humans, they realize they can no longer distinguish between the two.” – Animal Farm
