Congratulations, Senate Republicans—whether it was from election year fear, or a solid commitment to women’s rights (I’ll believe it when I see it), enough of you sucked it up and helped the Violence Against Women Act pass through your chamber.

We've got to beat this guy

Are you kidding me?  Women and women’s health have been under vicious attack lately and it isn’t stopping anytime soon.  Anti-choice zealots are coming out of the woodwork to run for office and it seems like the ones in office are putting up crazy anti-women’s health bills by the day.  Take Bob Gray in Michigan for example.    Bob Gray is a right-wing, anti-choice conservative who wants to prohibit women from making their own health choices.  His website says, “Does God approve of what will take place at 1625 N. Opdyke Road and what Planned Parenthood will be doing if we don’t put a stop to their madness?”

Now, they’re launching a multi-front attack.
