Senate Democrats continue their obstruction – and their war on womenPoliticsVirginia

Another press release from Senate Democrats. Another complaint about what happens between a woman’s legs.

Senate Dems are upset that Sen. Ralph Northam’s narrow-minded bill to “undo” a mandatory ultrasound during an abortion failed to clear committee.

“Here’s what I saw: choo, choo — railroad!” said Senator Janet Howell (D-Fairfax). “The Republicans are bent on railroading through an agenda with total disregard for the women of Virginia.”

Seriously? Making abortion safer for a woman is disregarding women? Now that’s liberal logic. (Of course, if the railroad is Amtrak, she has nothing to worry about. Seriously…more than five hours to DC from Norfolk? C’mon!)

Of course, what Howell fails to mention is how Democrats continue to wage their own war on women and families by failing to address any issue of substance.

    The republican brand is in tatters; sure, there are safe districts with Delegates
    that live in a gerrymandered world who will hang on for a long time, but it seems to me
    that republicans will not win again statewide if the election is about rape, ultrasounds,
    voter suppression, taking of general fund/K-12 money to pay for transportation, and
    trying to steal the next presidential election by changing the rules of the
    game. Can you imagine the insurrection that would occur if a President who won
    70% of the vote lost an election? Frankly, do these guys think about these things? Have they
    gotten so jaded that to them democrats are not entitled to personal liberty or an equal vote?
    Frankly, their brand, that has brought dirision and scorn and in addition a Commonwealth in rapid decline,
    needs some reflection and thought.

    Bearing Drift doesn’t get it on the invasive ultrasound problem.

    “Another complaint about what happens between a woman’s legs” is completely dismissive and borderline offensive. You’ve got two women that write here and neither of them represent the average woman voter. Eve Gleason subjugates herself to any Republican cause and Lynn Mitchell has never come close to touching any topic that contains the word “vagina”.

    Face it, most people agree that abortion is horrible, but it’s not anybody else’s right to say what somebody else can do to their own body. This problem is amplified when it’s truly a bunch of old white men who are trying to enforce their will.
