Below is the text of an email written by a woman (she gave us permission to reprint here but we have removed her name) who responded to her local State Representative, Jack Harper about the recent Arizona anti-abortion bills and suggestions from Terri Proud that women should have to watch a video of abortions being performed before having the procedure.
Representative Jack Harper wrote:
The only "laughing stock" in Arizona is the Democratic Party that has lost seats in the state legislature for five consecutive election cycles. Maybe you should change your baby-killer message. Why don't you move back to China where your "party" controls the message by force.
State Representative Jack Harper
In response to this email, a member of NOW (National Organization for Women) and feminist blogger, Lisa Blank called to verify that Jack Harper had personally sent the message telling a constituent her reproductive rights message is a 'baby killer message.' His office confirmed with, "Rep. Harper does respond to his own emails and if [you] saw the email on the Internet it is most likely correct."
