They are mad as hell and they are not going to take it any more. Meet the good citizens of Alabama.
Since the November elections, Republicans in the state legislature have introduced no less than 16 bills aimed at restricting women’s access to reproductive health care and basic human rights. The bills run the gamut from personhood to dictating the types of procedures that count as “abortions.”
And Alabamans have noticed.
In Hunstville, more than 150 people rallied against these invasions and demanded their legislators stop the assault on women’s rights in their state. “If you don’t stop this kind of intrusion into people’s personal lives today, it’s going to flow into other areas and keep restricting freedom,” Carl Cowart said.
The attacks have been so persistent they’ve even brought out Republicans to oppose the slew of bills. These issues cross party lines, according to Milly Breeden, of Republican Women for Choice. “This will not be a choice that a man has to make,” she said. “I want them to hear us down in Montgomery: No means no!”
Ready to join the fight back? Contact legislators in Alabama and let them know enough is enough. Contact them twice. In fact, don’t stop until each of these assaults on the basic dignity of women comes to an end.
