Make no mistake, women are under attack by Republicans in the United States.
Since Republicans gained control of the House in 2011, they have been very busy focusing obsessing on women. Our reproductive organs and our rights are under fire.
The Committee on Energy & Commerce just released these figures:
“The 55 votes have targeted women in a multiple ways: 17 votes have allowed health insurance companies to discriminate against women; 11 votes have cut women’s access to preventive care; 10 votes have restricted or rolled back abortion rights or access to legal abortion; 7 votes have cut funding for key nutritional votes for women; 3 votes have blocked access to reproductive and maternal care services; 3 votes have undermined the Medicare and Medicaid programs, and 14 votes have weakened environmental laws that protect pregnant women from toxic chemicals. The Republican budget drafted by Rep. Ryan further weakens many existing programs and institutions that support and protect women.”
