“Police in full riot gear showed up at a woman’s rights rally in Virginia to protest a new amendment that would require women to have an ultrasound before having an abortion. 31 people were arrested.
I love this woman….just stare ‘em down.”

Anonymous: you say there is a war on women... there is a war on abortion, not women in general. Don't over dramatize things. I agree that the shit is messed up and shouldn't be an issue. But saying things like that makes me want to not agree with you. Other then that I love your blog ha.

I didn’t coin the phrase, “War on Women”, but the truth is it’s not just a war on abortion.  Contraception is not abortion…contraception is called Family Planning…so a woman can have children when SHE wants them, instead of when Rick Santorum says it’s okay…Contraception also regulates women’s monthly cycles, and many women take contraceptives to keep themselves from getting other illnesses…all that has nothing to do with Abortion, but all these services are at risk, if Contraception were ever outlawed.

There most definitely IS a War on Women’s Rights…yes, there is…in fact, ALL of our Citizens’ Rights are being assaulted, from Privacy to Voter Suppression.  The War on Women is just one more stake in the heart of democracy.

Drama is sometimes necessary, to get your point across, when we are talking about life and death matters.

I’m proud if you think I over dramatized this important issue.

NEW VIDEO: A WOMAN’S VOICE

Uploaded by  on Mar 13, 2012

"I thank three Oscar-winning song writers — Marvin Hamlisch and Alan & Marilyn Bergman — for allowing me to play their moving song, "A Woman’s Voice," with iconic images that speak to my heart and I hope to yours. It is so crucial to elect more women who will stand up for our rights and for the respect we deserve. Help us make history by electing the most women to the U.S. Senate ever: Get involved at http://www.WinWithWomen2012.com

Advertisers: Pull Your Support for Rush Limbaugh!

Three advertiers have already pulled their ads!

With our numbers, we can MOVE MOUNTAINS!!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

Earlier this week, Rush Limbaugh referred to a very bright, very brave young woman speaking out on the medical need for birth control as a slut. He then doubled down, demanding that she post videos of her having sex online for his enjoyment.

Several of Limbaugh’s advertisers have already announced they will no longer advertise on Limbaugh’s program because of this. Sign the petition to the rest of his advertisers telling them to do the same. We will deliver the signatures:

To Century 21 Real Estate LLC, ProFlowers, CARBONITE, Inc., LegalZoom.com, Citrix Online (GoToMyPC), American Forces Network, and Mission Pharmacal Company: 

Please pull your advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s radio program in response to his disgusting comments demanding that Sandra Fluke post videos of her having sex for his enjoyment. Sponsoring this sort of hateful commentary reflects very poorly on your organization and calls our continued patronage of your products and services into question.

It’s really simple…if you want to enjoy the same rights as women enjoyed 50 years ago, DON’T VOTE REPUBLICAN!!
NOT FOR PRESIDENT, NOT FOR STATE CONGRESS, NOT FOR GOVERNOR, NOT FOR MAYOR, NOT FOR COUNTY CLERK - NOT FOR ANY ELECTED PUBLIC OFFICE!
No matter how much they try to say that they are CAMPAIGNING because they will create MORE JOBS, and whatever other bullshit they try to sling at the voters, in order to get elected, KNOW that they are a bunch of nutjobs who have no concern about the economy, the environment or the world situation.
REPUBLICANS WANT TO GET INSIDE YOUR BEDROOM AND REGULATE WHATEVER GOES ON THERE.  Then, if you should happen to get Pregnant, they want to REGULATE THAT, too.
The GOP has revealed itself to be an exceedingly dangerous, selfish, greedy, wicked, woman-hating, gay-hating, race-baiting, abortion-hating party, and they are not even BOTHERING to try and hide it any more.
WIMPY AS THE DEMOCRATS ARE, THEY ARE SAINTS COMPARED TO REPUBLICANS!
