Top 10 Shocking Attacks from the GOP War on Women

1) Republicans not only want to reduce women's access to abortion care, they're actually trying to redefine r ape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven't.

2) A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of r ape, stalking, and domestic violence to "accuser." But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain "victims."

3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (Yep, for real.)

4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids. 

5) In Congress, Republicans have proposed a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life.

6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids' preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working.

7) And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool.

8) Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.

9) Congress voted yesterday on a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country.

10) And if that wasn't enough, Republicans are pushing to eliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program. (For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses. You can't make this stuff up).

wow, so such a moving set and I fully support!

Wrote 5 years ago make us Republicans seem like devils. I am Republican, and I certainly do not want whatever this GOP War on Women site proposes, so some other Republicans must think the same. It's not like Liberals don't have their faults...I could go on forever.

hmmm..I wonder where all that money they are cutting is going? perhaps in their private Swiss bank accounts to support their lavish lives, yachts, Ivy league education for kids, their gay lovers, prostitutes and wives. The Republican party as a whole need to be be abolished, I have never in my life met a normal republican, their morals are backwards, their facts twisted, minds and hearts full of greed, these people are the dark side.

As though it's not hard enough for a woman to prove r ape already, even if she followed through immediately by going to the hospital. Even with reading this and being appalled, "accuser" sounds exactly as it's meant to - as fictitious hearsay. For some reason, THIS is the one that surprises me the most.
