The GOP: Panty Regulators

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives just wasted its time passing an unconstitutional abortion ban that will never even be brought up in the Senate, let alone reach the president's desk for veto. Across the country, Republican legislatures and governors have enacted strict abortion laws, some of which have already been declared unconstitutional.

When today's Republicans have control, their main focus isn't jobs. They strive instead to attack women's reproductive freedom. They claim to want small government, but they certainly love stuffing big government into women's panties every chance they get.

Before anyone calls us "baby killers," please keep in mind that every woman has the right to reproductive choice without having those rights dictated to her by the government. Republicans even try to limit access to birth control, which is proven to reduce the number of abortions. That's not a "pro-life" stance--that's "anti-choice."
