Monday's Doonesbury cartoon sums up the GOP's "war against women" in a few words in its reference to the state legislators and members of Congress who are anti-abortion zealots. All of the congressmen who voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood and stop Medicare coverage of contraceptives are Republicans. Which raises the question: What were Republican women thinking when they helped elect candidates who don't believe women should be allowed to make reproductive choices for themselves?

Washington -- The Republicans and Democrats are already looking ahead to the 1996 presidential election and plotting how to win over a crucial constituency: women.Thirteen years after the term "gender gap" entered the political lexicon -- and 75 years after women gained the right to vote -- the "women's vote" is as powerful a force as ever.By a slight majority, more women vote than men. And the difference in opinion on key issues remains wide. In regard to the budget deficit, crime, jobs and welfare reform, men express more confidence in Republican congressional leaders than do women by as many as 12 percentage points, according to a recent survey by the Times Mirror center.

Saying an unprecedented effort will be necessary to re-elect her husband, Maryland first lady Kendel S. Ehrlich called on Republican women to mount an aggressive grass-roots effort in 2006 similar to the one that brought President Bush victory in 2004. Ehrlich told members of the Maryland Federation of Republican Women that her husband, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., has accomplished a great deal in his first term but would need another four years to change state government. And for that, she said, he will need a stronger base of volunteers than the Maryland GOP has ever amassed.

Uh oh, another hate-filled hatchet job on a female Republican politician by Sun columnist Susan Reimer ("Please, no more flaky female candidates," Sept. 27). Actually, she spewed her venom on two such ladies, Christine O'Donnell and Sarah Palin, for whom she seems to have a visceral hatred. In a Sept. 2, 2008 column ("A woman — but why this woman?") Ms. Reimer characterized Ms. Palin as an "utterly unqualified woman," which is akin to what she wrote about Ms. O'Donnell in her recent column: "Please God. Not another ditz with baggage and a loopy belief system.

The second pro-Clarence Thomas senator goes before voters next Tuesday. He is Arlen Specter, a Pennsylvania Republican. Democratic Sen. Alan Dixon of Illinois faced the voters last month; he was upset by a little-known woman candidate, Carol Moseley Braun, who won in large part because of Senator Dixon's "yes" vote on the nomination. She got the "Anita Hill vote."If there really is such a vote. Pennsylvania's Republican primary could help confirm it. It is one thing for Democratic women to vote against a pro-Thomas senator, as apparently most of them did in Illinois.
