Praise for Morrisey for protecting women

There is no war on women by the Republican Party. This is more liberal rhetoric to divert attention from the liberal policies that have taken the United States of America down the “slippery slope.”

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is well within the scope of his office to ensure the safety of women who go to an abortion clinic for their medical services. We have car inspections, barber shops are inspected, restaurants are inspected, beauty salons are inspected, etc., to make sure the public is safe.

We should be even more concerned that the life of a woman is protected and safe. Life is precious.

If there was ever a war on women, it is the one conducted by the Democrat Party. They believe it is appropriate to deny the right to life of an unborn baby girl. Let’s not forget the sexual abuse inflicted on women by former President Bill Clinton while he was president and a married man. The sex scandal of former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who is also a married man, continues to this day, as he runs for mayor of New York City, and the allegations of sexual harassment of the mayor of San Diego are frightening.

I applaud Attorney General Patrick Morrisey for doing his job for the people of West Virginia … for the people of all political parties.
