1100 Anti Women Bills Proposed By GOP

There are 1100 anti women bills passed or pending in the US that represent the war on women's rights. 98% of the GOP voted against equal pay for women. The GOP and its fundynazi religious allies stopped ERA from being ratified. The GOP in Colorado just killed an anti wage theft bill which would have protected women as well. The GOP continues to add more women hate legislation and dare anyone to appose them. Look at what their Gestapo did to women demonstrators in Virginia. Had they resisted at all they would have been pepper sprayed and beaten.

I am surprised GOP politicians are not literally running for their very lives in this country. Everyone of these politicians is a racist, a bigot and a misogynist. And they are enthusiastically anti women, anti child and anti worker.

5. There's no list here, but a mention of the amount.

"By all accounts, 2011 was a watershed year for challenges to women's reproductive rights. State legislators introduced more than 1,100 anti-abortion provisions and had enacted 135 of them by year's end. Seven states either fully defunded or made moves toward defunding Planned Parenthood, which provides basic health care, contraception, breast cancer and STD screenings to millions of low-income women each year."

2. You forgot one very important thing

You forgot to mention that Republican women are supporting these bills, and in some cases are even sponsors of these bills!

3. That Is True

Yes that is true. They are misguided at best. They are not better then the men and in fact are worse because they should know better.

As far as 1100 bills it was on the Ed Schultz show. This number bills has been researched and has come up on several forums.

6. Torture camp creators walk free and are actually beloved by some

 

Equal rights mean absolutely nothing as long as the people who deny them are not held accountable.
