Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby, and it’s sister company Mardel, Inc., will defy a federal law that requires employee health care plans to provide insurance coverage for types of contraception that the firm’s owners consider to be “abortion-causing drugs and devices,” an attorney for the company said Thursday. Hobby Lobby has decided that providing birth control, specifically Plan B, or the morning after pill, to their employees through their insurance is in violation of their religious freedom under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).
Soooo… how do you deal with female political Democratic opponents? Just hurl some acid at them. No, this is NOT taken out of context. Jay Townsend, who is the spokesman for Rep. Nan Hayworth’s (R-NY) re-election campaign, posted on facebook:
“Listen to Tom. What a little bee he has in his bonnet. Buzz. Buzz. My questions today… when is Tommy boy going to weigh in on all the Lilly Ledbetter hypocrites who claim to be fighting the War on Women? Let’s hurl some acid at those female democratic Senators who won’t abide the mandates they want to impose on the private sector.”
Today was to be my day of catching up on some doggie graphic work and some new websites, but I keep coming across more and more websites and publishings about the war the GOP has declared on Women’s Rights. One minute I want to scream to everyone the unrighteousness behind these bills. Then the next minute, I want to pack up myself and my dogs and move into a cave in the Northern Territories – with high speed internet, of course. I’m sure I can find a cave, but since I seriously doubt I’ll find one with high speed internet, or even in an area where a wireless card will work, then I must do the former of the two options. More…
I would like to share some photos – which are further down this page below the video – that I took in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for the national march protesting the Republican Party’s “War on Women.” Not surprisingly, the GOP is now denying that they are waging any war on the women in our country. How can they not see what is as plain on the nose on our faces? Because extreme right wing conservatives believe firmly in a hierarchical system. Men are at the top. Excuse me… white men. Followed by white women… about 5 steps behind, pregnant and getting ready to cook their dinner. Any one else is of little to no importance to them – unless they serve a purpose as Allen West does in Florida.
We are a Democracy, not a Theocracy.
A woman’s body was not made for the government’s legislation.
I honestly cannot find any other way or words to tell the story of how the upcoming March on April 28th came to be. So here is the short article from Addicting Info. A very important read to understand where so many women are coming from who are in support of the War on Women movement.
Dedicated to the governor of Pennsylvania, who suggested that women upset at being forced to have an unnecessary internal ultrasound should ‘close their eyes’, and to the Georgia legislator who wants to outlaw abortion even for a woman carrying a dead fetus because ‘cows and pigs do it all the time’ , and to the gentleman in Wisconsin who wants to outlaw divorce and says that women who are abused by their husbands should just ‘remember th good times’, and… and…. and….
On April 28th, just a few short weeks away, is the march for the War on Women. In every state capitol throughout the country, and perhaps other major cities, women and men alike will unite in a march to protest all these insane bills. Bill which are appearing like cockroaches that allow the state’s governments to gain control over women’s uterus’. Arizona is now taking the cake with the most recent passing of their completely absurd AZ HB 2036 that redefines a pregnancy as beginning at two weeks before conception. So….
You have limited my access to crucial women’s health services.
You have vilified and punished me and my children because I am a single mother.
You have tried to redefine “rape” in an effort to reduce my access to abortion services.
You have publicly ridiculed me, and called me names to get me to sit down and shut up.
Does this picture below make you uncomfortable? It should, and I hope it does because sometimes, the truth is not pretty. Progressive media outlet The Texas Observer is raising eyebrows all over the internet with its new cover, a graphic for the story “Politics Become Personal: Texas Lawmakers Have Made Themselves Part of Women’s Most Difficult Decisions.”
The story comes on the heels of the major changes Texas lawmakers have passed regarding women’s healthcare, and follows Carolyn Jones’ first person account of getting an abortion after the passage of HB-15, published by the Observer on March 15th.
These beautifully designed pieces or art posters are definitely not for the faint of heart, nor the passive person. They are designed to make a statement to the politicians who feel it is their right to violate a woman’s body with ignorant insane laws. So, just a word of warning, if you are easily offended by language, then these are not for you. Designed by Favianna Rodriguez.
With all the recent news of the insanity spreading like a viral disease throughout our country, the War on Women has begun. I have always seen and believed that there are some rather ignorant people in both of our parties, but this year is much different. The Republican Party wins hands down. Bills are erupting all over the country, states ticking off one-by-one with their own bill which in some manner violates women’s rights.
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.
LOVE this photoshopped image! Found this on a site called, SnarkySnatch, and it is just perfect! Hey, fair is fair. If only…. (sigh).
Ladies – and men who support women’s rights – a war has started by the Republicans which will set us back hundreds of years. Time to stand firm and let the public hear your voice. I am woman, hear me roar!
