As you may already know, I have a lot of fun on Twitter and in these posts bringing forth the shenanigans of Republican candidates while also educating Michigan’s voters. I know that sometimes it may come off as silly or unserious. But today, I must be serious about what is happening regarding Roe v Wade.  But this is not the […]

ACTION: Tell Gov. Snyder to veto irresponsible ‘abortion coercion’ bills

ACTION: Tell Gov. Snyder to veto irresponsible ‘abortion coercion’ bills

House Bills 4787 and 4830 are poor public policy that do nothing to protect women from the real problem of reproductive coercion.

Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt has the potential to ensure a woman’s right to choose — or give abortion opponents more power than ever. It’s not news that abortion rights are under attack in America. Although seven in 10 Americans support a woman’s right to choose, anti-abortion legislators, lobbyists and extremists will stop at nothing — not a shooting spree, […]

Colorado proves it’s not about stopping abortions, it’s about controlling women

Colorado proves it’s not about stopping abortions, it’s about controlling women

I’ve long believed, as do so many others, that the forced birther movement, which claims to be about “saving lives”, is little more than a subterfuge for their real aim: controlling women. Why else would they go after contraception time and time again? Why else would they want to defund Planned Parenthood that prevents more unwanted pregnancies and abortions than […]
