Senator Gillibrand Fights Back for Women’s Health on the Senate Floor
Thing. Of. Beauty.
No full transcript available thus far, but here are a few excerpts from a dKos user who first posted the video:
Love the dig at Vile Jon Kyl :)
“These women ((Senators)) have drawn a line in the sand, a line we will not let you cross…”
“You will not balance the budget on the backs of women. Period.”
“An entire agenda around an assault on women…”
“This is a factual statement. Current law already prevents federal money from paying for abortions. This has been the law of the land for over thirty years.”
“The price for keeping the government open is this assault on women’s rights.”
“The Republican House is talking about how to continue this rhetoric and assault and negative effect on women and their families.”
“The votes that we’re going to have tomorrow, to defund Planned Parenthood, to repeal health care — American women, make no mistake about it, this is an attack on you.”
Seriously though, watch the whole thing (only 5 minutes long).
