Fox News host Bill O’Reilly accused Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders recently of providing cover for women wanting abortions for frivolous reasons. “If you are going to say that the two Democrats running for president both favor pretty much abortion at any time, for any reason, and they hide behind the women’s health issue,” O’Reilly told contributor Kirsten Powers. “But that could be a migraine headache, you know – ‘OK, I don’t want to have the kid, my boyfriend left me, my husband left me, whatever it may be, I got a migraine, kid is going to be born next week.’”
“I mean, regardless of what we might be thinking, the fact to the matter is migraines are the perfect cover for a number of things women might not be willing to do. Take marital duties, for example. We all know that a woman is supposed to satisfy her husband sexually whenever he wishes it. Of course, the same goes for the woman, but that’s not the point right now. And we also know that ‘Sorry honey, I’m not in the mood tonight, I’ve got a migraine,” is the oldest excuse in the book. So, let’s call it like it is here – women have been using lies like migraines for hundreds of years to prevent their husbands’ legal right to sex in marriage. And that a huge problem, if you ask me,” O’Reilly added.
The Fox News host continued, “And now, we’re in danger of allowing women to use that same, devastating lie to prevent a life to come to this world. I mean, are we seriously going to stand by and allow Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton to tell women it’s okay to deny a baby’s right to live by lying about having a headache? Have we seriously gone astray that much? I am appalled at what we’re discussing here, I have to admit. I mean, instead of solving one problem, we are basically watching the Democrats create another one just like it. And it is all because of women’s inability to suck it up and put out.”
“And I know women aren’t robots or slaves, okay, that is not what I am saying at all,” O’Reilly became defensive for a second. “But when a woman starts using the same excuse to not have sex and kill her unborn child, we should be asking ourselves – have we started allowing women to have more control over men than vice versa? Maybe men should start wearing skirts and makeup and women should go for pants all the time. I mean, that sounds like the next logical step. And then what? Are they going to complain about migraines when it’s time to go to work? Are men going to be the only ones to bust their butts at work while women stay home and spend money? Oh wait – we’re already there. My bad. I thought we had a chance at changing things. But, I guess we’re already f*cked.”
