Women have always had to work twice as hard to get half the respect and for 99 years Planned Parenthood has stood by us. Today we stand by them.  #IStandWithPlannedParenthood 

Margaret, in our day women were expected to sit down and be quiet about most things and especially about politics.  As you know, I was never very good at being a woman in my day.

Greg Abbott has decided his personal religious beliefs are more important than the health of poor women.  His lies should tell you how little moral conviction he really has.  That man makes about as much sense as tits on a bull.

Women of Texas put on your big girl panties and prepare to roar!

Here is the number to call if you have comments for that Asshat Governor Greg Abbott:  512-463-1782. 

You can leave a recorded message or stay on the line and speak to someone.  Either way, let’s light up that damn switchboard!

As my dear friend Ann Richards liked to say, “After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels.”  And I will add that in my opinion she did it better.  I mean it.  Really.

PS: If your state is messing with Planned Parenthood too, send me your Governor’s number and I’ll add it here.

Arizona Governor Ducey: (602) 542-4331

Arkansas Governor Hutchinson 1-501-682-2345

    They lost gay marriage, they can’t really go after immigration due to the Hispanic vote. Thank God for abortion, what else would those mutton heads have to stir up the pot?

  8. There are a couple on here that just do not know what they are talking about. Like Chrispy Critter or whatever. Or like the woman that admitted she wants her brand of religion to be the law we all have to abide by. Do you know that this “public funding” you speak of is about 90% in the form of Medicaid payments for services rendered for normal health issues like well woman checks and family planning/ birth control pills for women who cannot afford to go elsewhere to get medical care? Let me say that again….FOR SERVICES RENDERED FOR HEALTHCARE. I may be slightly off on my figures, but if PP gets $500 Million a year from the federal government, about $450 Million comes in the form of Medicaid payments for healthcare exams, breast care as well as womb care. And, your logic is totally backwards, if you deny these women or any women basic healthcare and family planning, you are causing the potential birth of thousands, nay, millions of new Medicaid patients to be born. Poverty begins at home!!!!! If your goal is to not support poor people, you end up causing more more poor people to be born. In the end, it costs much more to raise unwanted babies that to give the mother birth control and health checkups than it does to raise her 15 or more kids. You idiots!!! Come on, think about it!!!

  9. Helen, Thank you again and again for taking the lead on this important issue in Texas, and well every state where these sanctimonious egotistical Governors are trying to deny healthcare to thousands and thousands of women everywhere. I call Abbott not an Asshat, but an Asswipe! That is about all he is good for. That and his Attorney General who is under investigation and may soon be charged in some crooked scheme. I said back when Bush Jr. was Governor and then became President and got to appoint a Supreme they were after Roe vs Wade and that is exactly what they have spent the past 15 years doing. I just called and left my message for the Asswipe. It was so easy, I may call back tomorrow when I can practice what I want to say better with no cuss words. These Teas, partying or not, have just gotten way carried away with my rights as a woman and a citizen of this good State. You know Wendy is sitting somewhere saying, well, they got what they wanted and voted for. But that is so wrong Wendy. Please forgive the lost souls that voted Asswipe in and come back to help Helen lead us on..

  13. I love you Margaret and Helen. I just left a voice message for Governor Abbott, saying I don’t know what you’ve done but Margaret just told me you are messing with women’s rights, again! Told him to quit being a misogynist and if Texas wants to keep getting federal tax dollars, he should listen to what I’m saying. It’s OK to do what you want if you don’t want to receive ANY federal funding for anything in Texas. Pull out of the Union, I don’t care, but get your hands away from the only organization that has protected women and provided care for them when no one else will.

  41. Maybe in response to this attempt to shut down Planned Parenthood, women across the country should shut the gates to their respective hoohas until this issue is resolved. If these asshats want to deny us access to vital reproductive and family medical services, perhaps we should deprive them of access to our pearly gates. Just a thought.
