    get rid of affordable access for women without means which increasingly is most women. A young woman, right out of college, saddled with student debt, is not going to have extra money for contraception. I think Rick Santorum will make sure that if she's lucky enough to get a job,  her birth control won't be paid for, and that in addition, Planned Parenthood will be starved of funds and forced to shut down so that option — used by many, many of my friends when they were young and not making much money — won't be available.

    I have always been angry when I've heard progressives claim Republicans will never outlaw abortion because it's such a great fundraising/organizing tool. Of course they would if they could. And they will deny access to birth control if they can. They are just that contemptous of women.

    Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
