Admiral Franken answers question on reproductive rights:(1:30)
I was somewhat shocked (in an age where shock doesn’t happen much) when 195 Radical Right Republicans in the US House voted against preserving the right of Americans to purchase contraceptives. This vote was necessitated by the very strong warning that Justice Clarence Thomas sent in his concurring opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson ruling the overturned reproductive rights for women first set out in Roe v. Wade.
Given the warning Democrats are trying to preserve marriage rights and the right to purchase contraceptives before either the SCOTUS or radically right Republicans slam the doors on these rights. Thus marriage rights were passed through the House early this week and contraception rights quickly followed.
195 radically right Republicans voted AGAINST Americans rights to purchase contraception. Who are these people who so want to deny YOUR right to make your own decisions on your body and your sexual choices? Well, look around – they are radical right Republicans like Mariannette Miller-Meeks, Randy Feenstra and Ashley Hinson! They want to control your body.
I am going to guess that some of them – probably all three – have purchased contraception in their lives. Damned hypocrites!

This may be out of line, but it’s just so damn wrong that Mike Pence isn’t testifying under oath right now. More than anyone else, Pence is the one who should be testifying. It’s so wrong. = Former GOP Rep. Joe Walsh
