Women Ask Lawmakers For Reproductive Guidance [Video]


The women’s voices rising up to the surface and in opposition to the repeated attacks by legislatures on their reproductive health continues to grow. And as the attacks get more absurd, sometimes the only real answer is humor.

Take this video, released he independent production team created by Corinna, ME resident RJ Keller and Manchester, CT resident Kristen J. Tsetsi (The Paper Rats), who are best known for their “Inside the Writers’ Studio” web series, women direct questions about their personal and reproductive health to politicians and lawmakers whose legislative efforts aim to restrict those rights.

The video imagines a world in which politicians fear the end of times and place the burden of saving humanity on women.

The series uses humor to convey its very serious point: legislators are intent on turning back the clock on women’s progress and will succeed unless we fight back.

HA! Which inspires me to ask religious-RWNJ's the proper use of a dildo and gay sex since they are the expert on such subjects!

Dear Rick Sanitorium and Mitt Rawmoney,

If I go down to the fertility clinic and pick up a petri dish full of zygotes, will I be able to drive in the carpool lane when you are president?

Why wait for this important benefit? Have House Majority Leader John Boner do his crybaby act at the Supreme republican Court of the United States (SCROTUS), and get this thing moving.

The three of you could go a long way toward easing the minds of a lot of women by volunteering to demonstrate a trans anal-sphincter ultrasound to detect your missing crania.

These religious freaks don;t even understand that the Bible is NOT pro-fetus, or even particularly pro-child. It certainly isn't anti-sex or anti-birth control. Read the Song of Solomon if you have any doubts about it. All of the herbal libations mentioned in the Song -- hyssop, myrrh and honey, etc, are for birth control.

If you're gonna thump the Bible and use it as a weapon, you might at least have the decency and character to find out what it actually says. And nowhere does it say, "And a little tea bag shall lead them."

If the Rapture is coming, why bother restricting "those who will be left behind"? You know, like Lot's wife looking backward...you know what happened to her. Just look forward to those years and centuries, and milenias of hanging out in heaven with nothing to do.You know, no one "up there" is going to have a "down there" to do something with cause there ain't gonna be no nookie going on.
