This week, Cecile Richards decided to hijack yet another holiday and make it about everything it isn’t. They did it for Christmas, and now they’re doing it for Valentine’s Day.

Taking feminism to its logical conclusion, Cecile declared that “what women need for Valentine’s Day” is abortion and birth control.

Listen up men, you thought dinner would be nice? Wrong. And that you would pay? Well, that’s just degrading, because in the eyes of the Left, what women “need” eliminates the need for a committed man in their lives or for anyone else besides them and Lena Dunham. 

They will refuse to let you open the door, scoff when men offer a seat, and yet, at the end of the day, complain that there are no “real men out there anymore.”

My CWA staff had a few thoughts of their own on what women really need:

See, when the Left hears someone say that true love is sacrificial, they think that means that complete strangers must be forced to sacrifice money and deeply held convictions to make sure they have their proverbial box of chocolates, contraceptives, and birth control.

This Valentine’s Day, I won’t do our gender a disservice and try to speak for them all. But I will say, for me and my friends, we would like respect over an abortion any day.
