In case you are interested...



It is unacceptable to convene a panel on denying access to birth control coverage with five men and no women. Women must be brought to the table when discussing women’s health issues.

I agree.. I don't see why women are not involved in more issues that involve us!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Actually that petition was about the House Republicans convening about birth control but they had no woman on the panel.



There is a new petition on this topic:



House Republicans have launched an all-out war on women since taking the Speaker's gavel. In the last year, Republicans have:



Proposed redefining rape to only cases of "forcible rape" to deny access to women's health services.

Voted to defund Planned Parenthood and repeatedly tried to restrict access to women's health care services.

Held a hearing on women's health with five men and no women.

Over the last week, we saw top Republican leaders squirm at denouncing or even criticizing Rush Limbaugh after he called women's health care advocate Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" on his radio show.



It's clear Republicans are trying to silence women who stand against their radical agenda.



Sign our petition today and become one of One Million strong telling Republicans to end their radical War on Women.




Here is where you can sign this one:
