A bitch has been in Jefferson City lobbying the state legislature to vote NO on the Abortion Restriction Bill. This is the last week of session and, as usual, the legislature is working to pass a lot of pending shit before the bell rings at 6pm on Friday.
Longtime readers know that this bitch highly recommends the folks pay attention to their state and local government. Legislators need to hear from their constituents – it is essential and does make a difference.
Trust me, they hear from special interest groups hourly…and legislators often define the values of their district by which voice in the special interest group chorus is the loudest.
Since my ass has had to juggle dawg care and work with the drive to and from Jefferson City, I know very well that it isn’t easy for the masses to get their citizen lobby on.
But we can all send an email, pick up the phone and make a call and let our elected representatives know where the people stand.
Missouri lawmakers are poised to pass legislation that will add more restrictions to access to abortion services…restrictions that shame women, promise support for women who chose to continue their pregnancy that the state can not so will not provide and that do nothing to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies in the state.
And the same ridiculous shit is happening in state after state.
So this is my tired as hell, stressed out and generally disgusted with the ease with which some people pander to anti-choice organizations in an election year soap-box appeal to the masses…
Be aware…be vocal…and be persistent – politics is local and we the people cannot afford apathy.
Gawd, how I long to be able to say “Thank goodness that law didn’t pass!” instead of “My Gawd, I can’t believe that piece of shit is going to be law.”
