ARE YOU MAD YET?????? :evil: Sometimes I cannot believe that we are actually at the end of the first decade of the twenty-first century when I look at how the Republicans want to keep women suppressed....and how many women let them!

Senate Republicans Tell Women: You Are Mere Pawns

In the great game to topple the President and beat the Democrats, every Republican Senator voted as a united bloc to stop the passage of the Paycheck Fairness Act for women.

For those who want to blame President Obama, Valerie Jarrett, the White House Council for Women and Girls, and Senator Reid -- your anger is misplaced. They have been working consistently with the coalition to pass the Act, and the President and Jarrett met with women's leaders at the White House after the vote. They wanted to make sure we knew that they will continue working with us until Paycheck Fairness is passed. The President is confident the Act will pass, and cited the majority of Republican and Independent women who support pay equity.

Senate Republicans, who voted in lockstep, don't care how or whether women can put food on the table or roofs over their heads. They sent a message to women, "you are dispensable."Let's face it, Republicans saw stopping the Paycheck Fairness Act as an easy vote to appease the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and big business interests that have been stalling this fair pay bill for years. They are such cowards, hiding behind procedural votes because they don't have the courage to vote no on the bill itself. They know a majority of Americans support pay equity for women.

WOMEN'S RIGHTS FACE GREATEST THREAT IN OUR LIFETIME!

By Amanda Terkel


WASHINGTON -- Women's reproductive rights are being seriously threatened by the Republican Party, according to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who said she is....

Women's Health Advocates Unfazed By GOP's War On Planned Parenthood

The coalition of pro-choice groups and members of Congress gathered on Capitol Hill on Tuesday and effectively told Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) where he can put his plan to eliminate all federal funding of Planned Parenthood.

Pence has long called for an end to federal spending on the family planning organization, which receives about $360 million a year in taxpayer money from federal, state and local governments. Federal funds cannot be used for abortion, and are earmarked for family planning, cancer screenings and other women's health services.

A portion of that care falls under the so-called "Title X" provisions of the Public Health Service Act, a law that provides federal funding for family planning -- but not abortion, which cannot be paid for with federal money except in very strict circumstances, such as pregnancies resulting from rape. In their zeal to trim federal spending -- and, according to women's rights advocates on the Hill and elsewhere, as part of a plan to eliminate funding for contraception all together -- Republicans have eliminated Title X funding from their budget proposal.
