Republicans for Shotgun Weddings and Against Birth Control: Action Alert
Urge Congress to Support Reproductive Freedom -- Support the 'Prevention Through Affordable Access Act' to restore affordable birth control for students and low-income women.
"Birth control prices are now 2, 3, and even 5 times higher at college campus health centers and clinics serving low-income women across the country, going from $10 to up to $53 a month because of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, passed by the old Republican Congress. Take action today: tell Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and all of Congress to restore affordable birth control for students and low income women!"
The outrageous birth control price hike on college campuses is just what you'd expect from the Big White Daddy Republican Party that worries about things like how many white people are being born.
And things like how many women are actually FREE to marry or NOT because the aid of birth control ensures that we women can actually support ourselves!
Republican men are obviously having trouble finding wives. The promotion of shotgun weddings and laws mandating that women must marry men, Not women, are the best they can do. No wonder they are so adamantly opposed to gun control.
That women are still fighting for access to birth control (!) in the year 2007 gives me pretty well no hope for the future of this cowboy country. The fondest dream of the Cowboy (Republican) Party is: All the men get guns and all the women get babies.
And of course in the spirit of Uncle Clarence Thomas, we have an anti birth control WOMAN in charge of federal funds for birth control or the Title X family planning program!
I'm glad Margaret Sanger is not here to witness it.
It only takes a minute to tell your Congress member to support access to affordable birth control!
But the only real solution is to elect liberals!
