House Republicans Pushing ‘Let Women Die’ Bill

Misogyny

Let no one ever say that the Republican Party is trying to hide their true agenda, and it’s not “creating jobs.” The plain fact is that regulating women’s reproductive systems is far more important to the atavistic GOP, as they demonstrate by trying to pass a disgusting, inhuman bill that would allow hospitals to refuse care to women who need abortion-related services: Dem: House GOP ‘misogynist’ for bringing up abortion bill.

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) on Thursday charged House Republicans of misogynous motives in bringing up a bill that seeks to limit federal funding for abortion.

“What my colleagues on the other side of the aisle are attempting to do is misogynist,” Speier said on the House floor. “It is absolutely misogynist.”

“This bill goes to the farthest extreme in trying to take women down, not just a peg, but to take in shackles to some cave somewhere,” Speier said. “Basically what this bill would do is say that any hospital could decline to provide services to one class of people in this country, and that one class of people are pregnant women.” …

Speier recounted how she was pregnant and miscarrying, and said she would have been in serious jeopardy if this bill were in place at that time. “If I had to go from hospital to the next trying to find one emergency room that would take me in, who knows if I would even be here today,” she said.
