(HELENA INDEPENDENT RECORD) — BILLINGS, Montana — Attorney General Tim Fox told Montana Republicans Friday that a “war on women” is taking place, but it’s not the war that Democrats accuse Republicans of waging.
“One slogan that irks me is ‘the war on women,” Fox said at a breakfast hosted by the Montana Federation of Republican Women. “We hear this tossed around quite a bit, almost always thrown at Republicans when we fight to defend the unborn, traditional marriage and the sanctity of the family, or the conscience rights of taxpayers who don’t want to be forced to pay for abortion and contraception.”
Fox, who is Montana’s chief legal and law enforcement officer, said there is a real war on women, “but it’s not the one that political hacks and talking heads prattle on about.”
