Are you as outraged by the Republicans’ radical assault on women as I am? Then let’s do something about it!
We’ve watched in disbelief as Republican extremists in Congress have attempted to undermine our hard-won rights, voting time after time to do away with measures that protect women’s health. There are so many of these fanatical attempts that I won’t try to list them all, but here are a few of the most disgusting:
- Voted to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood.
- Voted to limit a woman’s access to reproductive health.
- Voted to restrict a woman’s right to choose.
- Voted against life-saving health care for women.
The final straw for me was Republican Darrell Issa’s recent Congressional hearing on contraception coverage for women in which none of the public testimony came from women. NONE!
We can't let them get away with this, and I strongly urge you to join me in sending Rep. Issa, Rep. Patrick McHenry (whose record on this issue is also abysmal) and the House Republican leadership a message:
We are outraged at your behavior and demand that you end your war on women now!
Thank you for standing up for the rights of women in North Carolina and across our nation.
Update: I mistakenly stated that no women were allowed to testify at Rep. Issa’s hearing. As it turns out, only the first panel was woman-free, while the second panel included two women.
