SCREWED: SAY GOOD-BYE TO YOUR SEX LIFE IF THINGS GO SOUTH IN NOVEMBER
Playboy contributor Nancy L. Cohen predicts a losing battle for your sexual rights in a Romney White House
From the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes and the Great Plains, in the past year heartland Republicans pushed nearly a thousand laws to restrict access to contraception and abortion. The House spent one out of every seven days focused on America’s lady parts, where Senator Rand Paul tried to attach a “life begins at conception” rider to the National Flood Insurance Program while Florida was bailing out from Tropical Storm Debby. Welcome to the war on your sex life. In the November issue of Playboy, author and activist Nancy L. Cohen reveals what you can expect should Romney win the November Presidential election.
When Willard Mitt Romney entered high school in 1961, birth control was illegal in some states, abortion was illegal except in rare cases, and young women had to lie to get the pill. Is America going back to those days? That depends on what happens in November.
Cohen reports the evidence from Romney’s years as governor—a subject he religiously avoids talking about—proves him to be anything but moderate. Governor Romney reneged on just about every campaign promise he had made to women and gays about sexual rights, personal freedom and privacy. Romney wouldn’t even protect a rape victim from having to bear the child of her rapist; he vetoed a bill requiring hospitals to give emergency contraception to rape victims.
Romney 2016? Here’s Cohen’s prediction: As Americans ready themselves for another presidential election and watch the Rio Olympics, most of the old porn-friendly computers have been sent off to the scrap heap of history. In half the nation abortion is illegal and birth control is rare. The average age of marriage has plummeted to 20. The notion of casual sex is a fantasy, the sexual revolution history. The sexual counter-revolutionaries have won.
Welcome to the future of your sex life. Welcome back to 1950.
