Great video. When hearing the women quote, word for word, some statements made by some very prominent people, they become even more powerful in exposing the harsh reality of the war the Republican Party has started with women. The GOP has got a serious problem with women. Until they get over their issues, women have got a serious problem with the GOP.
Ladies, and men who support women’s causes and rights, please… the time is now to make your stand. Write your congressman, your district Rep, Senator, sign petitions, march, blog, post, cross-post, share, just keep it going and growing. We women have made such advances in the past several decades, so let’s not start going backwards in time.
Here are the quotes given in this short video by MoveOn.org – and the first one really has me hot under the collar. I would love to know who said that, I really would.
Republican lawmaker (name not given): “Forcing women to have an ultrasound before an abortion is justified because they already made the decision to be vaginally penetrated when they got pregnant.”
Rep. Bob Morris (R): “The agenda of Planned Parenthood includes sexualizing young girls through the Girl Scouts.”
Rush Limbaugh: “If we’re going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”
Sen. Rick Santorum (R): “A woman impregnated through rape should accept that horribly created gift. The gift of human life. Accept what God has given you and make the best of a bad situation.”
