Get Your Hands and Your Laws Out of My Uterus, Arizona!!

I am not really sure what to be more outraged over --- the fact that this is actually being drafted for legislation or that a woman supports it!

Arizona State Legislator, Terri Proud, wrote to a constituent using a state emaiil account saying:

"Personally I'd like to make a law that mandates a woman watch an abortion being performed prior to having a "surgical procedure". If it's not a life it shouldn't matter, if it doesn't harm a woman then she shouldn't care, and don't we want more transparency and education in the medical profession anyway? We demand it everywhere else.
Until the dead child can tell me that she/he does not feel any pain - I have no intentions of clearing the conscience of the living - I will be voting YES."

This is in response to a voter expressing her opinion on the bill and essentially asking that she vote no, instead of yes. In addition to the proposed ban on abortions after 20 weeks, they also want to make it legal for doctors to withhold information from patients to prevent abortions, and defund Planned Parenthood. This is also in line with their desire to make it legal to fire women for using birth control if it is for non-medical reasons, forcing women to disclose the information to employers.

What can we do as women, to band together, and scream loud enough for our voices to be heard? It's obvious that the people who are being paid to represent us are not doing what is in our best interests even when we've written to them and asked for their support. How can we fight back in a way that will be meaningful and effective?

... I am actually too angry to say anything about this right now. Maybe later I'll be able to express myself, but for right now I'm just going to go listen to all of my brain cells bursting with pure rage.

Welcome to colonialism, again.

Terrifying isn't it? I live in AZ!

They are also trying to pass a law that requires you to submit your medical records to an employer in order to get your insurance to pay for birth control.

As a health care professional this terrifies me. I'm not saying that I condone abortion or want to cram birth control down anyone's throat but I want to have the CHOICE and I want to have CHOICES to offer my patients!

Anyhow, I shared this with the crafters club perhaps you may find this a good way of standing up and being heard

Government Free VJJ

They are asking everyone who care to craft a Vagina or Uterus and send it to a Congressman, Senator or House Rep with a note that says if I make you a uterus will you keep your hands off of mine? I'm going to be knitting one, I encourage everyone to craft one out of anything you can and send it with a note.

The scary part about this is that it has been happening across the country and government officials are ignoring the protests and out cries of citizens.
