Hillary Stands Up for Women


In a blog at rhrealitycheck.org, Senator Clinton describes the latest attack on women's reproductive health by the Bush Administration.

If George gets his way, birth control pills and IUDs will be labeled "abortion"!!!!! This isn't some idle threat. The Department of Health and Human Services is poised to put these Draconian measures into effect, unless they are stopped.

Senator Clinton is leading the fight, but where is Obama?

What does the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party, and constitutional lawyer, have to say about this travesty?

Nothing. He's too busy overseas meeting leaders he "will be dealing with for the next 8-10 years", I guess in that mythical 3rd term, maybe voted into law by one of the extra 7 of the 57 states he says he has visited this past year.

Or maybe he thinks women who use birth control are "just blue" and they should "get over it"?

Willow, I am aghast - would never have thought that such a piece of legislation could be enacted in this day and age. What's next??? All of us wearing the burqa, denied an education and the right to vote or do meaningful work? This is incredibly scary.
