Planned Parenthood invites Carly Fiorina to visit a Michigan clinic for “an honest debate” without “totally false claims”

At the Republican debate this past week, Carly Fiorina attacked Planned Parenthood with an earnest ferocity that got a LOT of attention. She did it, however, by telling completely fabricated lie.

Michigan Republicans carry out callous, sneaky attacks on women, LGBT people and families

With control over every aspect of Michigan’s government, Republicans are no longer even trying to hide their contempt for anyone they disagree with. By the time you read this post, there’s a good chance the Michigan GOP will have pulled another underhanded stunt. They’re becoming an everyday occurrence.

Michigan Republicans get right on further degrading a woman’s right to seek healthcare
