You may or may not have heard this wonderful (sarcasm) news, guys! Arizona Governor Jan Brewer–yes, she is a woman–has recently passed a bill to ban public funding of organizations, like Planned Parenthood, who perform “nonfederally qualified” abortions. This basically means, unless the mother’s health is at risk or the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, the government does not see any other reason to have an abortion as legit. So any hospital or organization that is willing to provide abortions for other reasons–like you know, to respect a woman’s choice–will no longer receive funding. This combined with all the recent birth control controversy may have you wondering: wtf is going on?
It’s a good thing Jan Brewer and the rest of the GOP know what women really want. We may say we want the right to choose–but we girls are too busy deciding which shade of lipstick will best attract a husband to make any real decisions! What we really want is the choice not to choose. That’s why Kate Beckinsale, Judy Greer, and Amy Savage have put together this lovely (hilarious) video Republicans, Get In My Vagina. Where do we need government? Right up in our hoo-has! I hope the GOP know how to get a tampon in–it can be a little tricky.
“Open up your legs and let the government in!” I’ll make the T-shirts.
Do you think the government has the right to tell women what to do with their bodies? How do you feel about abortion rights? Let us know in the comments!
