|We men aren't mercenaries caring only for Y chromosomes. We have wives and daughters, mothers and sisters, and we have a pretty intimate stake in contraception as well. Romney has boasted that he would cut off all money for Planned Parenthood -- even though federal assistance for the organization has nothing to do with abortions. It pays for such things as screenings to reduce breast cancer and cervical cancer. So when you hear people scoff that there's no real difference between Obama and Romney, don't believe them. And it's not just women who should be offended at the prospect of a major step backward. It's all of us.|
