Multiple states have now passed laws that WILL kill women. [View all]

Not to mention all of the more nuanced sufferings that will result from restrictions and closing women's clinics (and giving us over to BirthRight et al).

This IS a LIFE OR DEATH issue for tens of MILLIONS of women. That is the reality here.

It is bigger than the sufferings imposed by DOMA. More dangerous to life, limb, and liberty than removal of voting rights, than doubling of student loan interest, than chained CPI.

The repercussions WILL be DEADLY. It is a firing squad aimed at women

It is IMMEDIATE and it is real. Not something to be argued in endless abstractions, as in the endless arguments over Snowden, how bad is the NSA, and how much we should hate Obama.

Progressive and Liberal organizations of all stripes should to be rallying to the cause, to protect women's LIVES!


I can't believe that this is showing as more of a corollary issue, as far as DU attention goes. As if it were "A Women's Issue", and therefore less urgent.

We should be pooling resources, coordinating activist groups, insisting that our media get LOUD and reality based about this.
