This guy makes me ashamed to be living 30 west of the UP. What a moron. Anyway, I'm stealing, in totality, Tbogg's great post about Stupak, stupidity, sexism, & stupidity, there I've said it again. Go do what Tbogg says, or the Basset Hounds will be loosed.
Bart Stupak, who is apparently a congressman from some horrible depressing dying part of Michigan, does not seem to understand that abortion is a legal medical procedure in the rest of America that isn’t horrible, depressing and dying. So he would like to eliminate the part of the public option that would cover this procedure for poor women, and if his plan also makes it tougher for not-poor women to get this legal medical procedure, well, that gives him a boner too.
Since the Democratic leadership won’t stand up to him (because they are the Democratic leadership, after all) please go make a donation to Planned Parenthood in Bart Stupak’s name here.
Also. Please have Planned Parenthood send a thank you card to Bart Stupak:
Congressman Bart Stupak
2268 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515
Any amount, no matter how small, will do.
