    From Rush Limbaugh's 35 Undeniable Truths of Life:

    24.Feminism was established as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.

    Here let me fix that:
    'Feminism is the radical notion that Liberal/Progressive/Democrat women are people.'
    That's what those old womyn really meant, right?   And, generally, it's still true today.

    Feminism is the radical notion that the babies of feminists are not people.

    Although the inherent brevity of bumper stickers can leave them open to all sorts of interpretation, this particular one has never seemed to me to be well thought out.

    I maintain that the personhood of women was never in question. What feminists initially fought for was woman's place in society, on equal footing with men. With all the rights, lights, and privileges, etc. etc.

    I'm not really sure what feminism means in the U.S. anymore. The label has sort of lost it's way.

    Now, if only we could get feminists to go along with the radical idea that fetus is a person…

    No less than Justice Scalia has stated that the term "persons" in the 14th Amendment does not apply to women (though apparently, it does apply to corporations). Many others on the right hold the same position. Hence, the bumper sticker.

    No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
