From Texas … to Washington D.C. … to right here in Missouri …the Republican Party is dead set on telling women what to do with their bodies.
Last year … they even went after BIRTH CONTROL.
The Trump Wing has totally taken over the Republicans in the Missouri Senate as a result of this extremist takeover … they put more than four billion dollars in federal healthcare funding at risk … because they wanted to block women on Medicaid from accessing birth control.
They knew what they were doing.
This wasn’t the result of unintended consequences. This was their plan all along. To ban birth control. To keep women as second-class citizens with no decision over their own reproductive rights.
We stopped them this time.
And I was proud to be an ally in that fight. … as it was a group of women senators who stayed up all night to get the job done and rewrite the bill. Because that’s what women do.We get the job done. This time. We won the battle … but the war rages on.
Last year, it was birth control, This year, it’s Voting Rights and Women’s Reproductive Rights. What will it be next? More Individual rights?
It may be women today but who knows what it will be tomorrow. This country was founded on freedom of region, freedom of speech and so many more freedoms that make our form of democracy (government) work. Of course we want all people to believe what we believe and have the faith that we have, but is that a democracy? Is that freedom? Well on November 8th you get to decide if Missouri is going to continue to support the threat to our freedom, and democracy , and throw our children’s future into chaos? Or will you let your Voice (Vote) be heard and say no to all the insurrectionist that threaten our country and our freedom to just be Americans!
They will come after all of us … again. And I’ll be right there to fight for you … to fight for us … to fight for
