These two chumps need to stay out of womens’ bodies

The twin misogynists of the Ohio Legislature – Delaware County’s Ohio Senator Kris Jordan and Ohio Representative Andy Brenner just can’t seem to figure out that they are on the wrong side of the street when it comes to controlling women’s right to health care. 

Last July, Jordan just flat-out lied about Planned Parenthood’s work in Ohio — telling a reporter from the Mansfield News-Journal that,  “They say they do a lot of other things, but their business is really abortions.”

Really, Kris?  More than 96% of what Planned Parenthood does in Ohio is life-saving cancer screenings, birth control, prevention and treatment of STDs, breast health services, pap tests, sexual health education, information and health counseling.  In 2010, the organization recorded more than 218,817 client medical visits, including:

  • 27,129 pap tests
  • 24,302 breast examinations
  • 36,157 pregnancy tests
  • 121,816 STI tests.

Funny enough, it was also last July when Kris’ wife, Melissa Jordan, called 911 from the couple’s home.  The official Sheriff’s office transcript contains the following.  ”

Sheriff’s Office:  Okay, so is anybody else around you?

Melissa:  No, I don’t know what to do.

Sheriff’s Office:  It’s okay. It’s all right.

Melissa:  This is the first time I ever called you.  He’s done this a lot.  I can’t put up with it anymore.

Sheriff’s Office:  Okay, we just wanted to make sure that there is not – where’s the weapon at?  Is it locked up or does he have it on him.

Melissa:  I don’t think he has it on him.  He took it off.

Sheriff’s Office:  He took it off where?

Melissa:  In, it’s in here.

Sheriff’s Office:  With you?

Melissa:  It’s right here.  I see it.

Sheriff’s Office:  Okay

[Background talking]

Sheriff’s Office:  [Inaudible]

Melissa:  He’s walking away, he’s had some drinks, he was pushing me around, throwing stuff.  Because I called you he wants; he says it’s over.”

Nice.  that puts this pretty couple right up there with all of the ugly domestic abuse calls that go down each day.  Except, of course, our pro-gun legislator Kris Jordan had his little friend in his pocket or right near by.

So what did Jordan say to the cops?  “She got a little upset.  Girls do that.”

Silly girls we are . . . getting upset about little things like this fool pushing his wife around . . . carrying a concealed weapon . . . yikes!

I have long said that I believe he is capable of great violence — sadly he proved it.

 

And then there’s Andy.  He’s so proud of his stance on reproductive rights that he put this out this week.

“I am honored to share the news with you today that I have been endorsed by Ohio Right to Life for the 67th Ohio House District for the 2012 primary. My opponent in the primary was not endorsed.  (Of course, his opponent is Craig Schweitzer, who clearly states on his website that he is 100% against abortion.)
During my time in the House, I have fought early and often for legislation that protects the rights of the unborn, including the “heartbeat bill.” Earning the support of Ohio Right to Life is very important to me, and I am truly humbled to have been recognized by this endorsement. Through supporting the CORE Center in Delaware and other pro-life causes, I am doing all I can both as a legislator and a citizen to promote this important cause.”  Gee thanks.
But how does this little guy reallyfeel about women?  Well, when the company owned by him and his wife, SaraMarie Brenner, was first discovered to be in default of federal trust taxes, the big-ole, brave boy had this to say:  (from The Columbus Dispatch 8/25/11)

“Asked about the lien, Rep. Brenner downplayed his role with the company, acknowledging that he is vice president “but I don’t have any say in the company.” He said he helps when needed and is not paid.

His position with the company is listed on both his official House biography and his campaign website.

“There are a lot of companies that owe back taxes. Are you going to write about them as well?”Rep. Brenner said, before directing questions to his wife.”

Really Andrew?  You directed questions to your wife?  So, let me get this straight.  You want to be in charge of my uterus, but you don’t want to take responsibility for a business you are trying to build a career on.  What a guy.

These two yahoos (Jordan and Brenner) are all about ducking responsibility when it comes to the women they married.  But they are Johnnies on the Spot about what other women should be doing.  It’s ironic.  Two middle class, publicly-education white boys who have not publicly claimed fatherhood for any children are all about protecting cells in utero.  Perhaps they should just shut up and keep their sperm.  That’s really the best idea for protecting Ohio’s unborn.

  1. From whence came “women’s right to health care”? Men don’t have a right to health care. Children don’t have a right to health care.

  2. @thedrpete: Strictly speaking, there is no right to Social Security or Workmen’s Compensation, or a minimum wage (never mind a living wage), either. It’s just that civilized societies have learned to do those things to promote some measure of social justice and social stability (Bismarck didn’t like it either, but even he figured out that much more than a century ago.) If, however, you truly believe that this life is every man for himself and the devil take the hindmost, then that is fascism, and you need to take a good hard look in the mirror to reflect about what you’re advocating for yourself and your neighbors. Children with no right to health care but medical needs would be among the first to be culled in the world you advocate.
