Dante’s Infernal Post: Part IV: Challenge #1

The real mission of the Ruth Institute is to erase the gains that women have made with regard to their social, economic and sexual liberation and ensure that they become baby factories like something out of Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale.

Now, before you run away in a screaming panic, please answer me one question:  I was recruited to blog for the Ruth Institute by Dr. J herself.  Dr. J knows my situation.  She knows that my wife’s a doctor.  She knows I supported her throughout college and medical school so she could achieve her dream.  I took care of the children so she could pursue her career.

Dante, could you please explain how I, as a member of the nefarious Ruth Institute (and as a certifiable member of the religious right) want to “erase the gains” of women?

    Well, it depends on what one views as a “gain”, doesn’t it? The Progressives view societal acceptance of premarital sex, the abolition of marriage, and a woman’s “right” to kill her unborn children as advancement.

    Note that the Progressives always go to extreme. Either a women must give her body freely to all comers, or she must be a “baby factory”. A middle course, where both women and men concern themselves with the long-term well-being of their family, is inconceivable.
