Karen Bass. Yup, she is coming out to tell women that women’s rights are all about abortion. I take note that the far left never talk about rape, abuse, mutilation in the middle east, just abortion. Then, they hammer the issue while Republicans either go Todd Akin or they run and hide like cowards.
Today is International Women’s Day – a time to make vital progress on women’s rights around the world.
In honor of this day, I co-hosted a congressional briefing with my colleague Congresswoman Karen Bass and Planned Parenthood earlier this week on the importance of international family planning – a key aspect of women’s equality.
As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee I’m proud to have worked with Rep. Bass to shine a light on issues of concern to women around the world including maternal health, violence against women, and gender discrimination.
Though we have come a long way in this struggle in the U.S., we’re not finished yet. Right here at home, women are still paid less than men for doing the same work, reproductive rights are still being challenged and attacked far too often, and many women lack access to basic health care.
As a son, husband, and father of a daughter, I have spent my life surrounded by strong women. Fighting for women and families is a deeply personal issue for me.
That’s why I’m supporting the When Women Succeed, America Succeeds economic agenda in Congress. This agenda is designed to help ensure women and families everywhere are given a fair shake.
A key piece of this agenda is the Paycheck Fairness Act – a bill that strengthens protections for working women by providing incentives for equal pay for equal work and banning retaliation against workers who expose discriminatory pay gaps. (this bill is a lawyer’s dream – it set’s arbitrary and nebulous standards and will only drive up the cost of doing business)
The When Women Succeed, America Succeeds economic agenda is crucial to helping women and families everywhere achieve economic security and peace of mind.
The Fraud Doctor is getting desperate – he is pushing Abortion on Demand to solidify his base and attempting to perpetrate the war on women lie. If anyone has contributed, it is the fraud doctor with his job-killing votes that have left millions of women unemployed and his support of obamacare that has left millions uninsured. But, in his mind, pimp abortion and everything will be ok.
Doug Ose? He is as pro-choice as Ami Bera is!
