Rather than caring about women’s health and well-being, Cruz is one of the white men who is obsessed with women’s vaginas and controlling them. When Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards took aim at Ted Cruz’s hypocrisy, it shattered under her direct hit.
While Richards is out there stumping for former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, she still finds time to call Cruz on his nonsense about the women’s healthcare organization Planned Parenthood.
Hillary Clinton took some poignant shots at religious extremist Sen. Ted Cruz for building a façade of concern, but any woman who votes for him is, in Richards’ words at a Clinton rally:
‘Like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders!’
Both Richards and Cruz are from Texas, and Richards’ mother was the former Governor Ann Richards. Cruz has strongly conservative religious views when it comes to women, and he believes that God chose him to rule this country.
‘In my house, if my daughter, Catherine, the 5-year-old, says something that she knows to be false, she gets a spanking. Well in America, the voters have a way of administering a spanking.’
Implying he would like to put Clinton over his knee is extremely disrespectful of a former First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State. In contrast, all Cruz has accomplished is being the most hated U.S. senator and shutting down the government. Yet, he believes he is better than Clinton, simply because he was born a male.
As such, with his right-wing religious conservatism, the Texas senator feels justified in his efforts to control women’s reproductive rights. He voted against the Violence Against Women Act, condones the murder of abortion providers, believes LGBT Americans are demons, and opposes all abortion exemptions, including for rape and incest.
Remember, this is the guy who also wanted to ban sex toys and masturbation in Texas.
