We can't say the word "Vagina" out loud, or we too might be banned from speaking on the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives. As you've heard, this happened to Michigan State Rep. Lisa Brown last week on Wednesday.
Her exact comment (on yet another anti-choice and anti-woman bill which the Republican-controlled house rammed through) was "Finally, Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but no means no."1
So what can we do about it?
Apparently it's okay to legislate vaginas, but not talk about them. This kind of undemocratic anti-women right wing censorship is exactly why Progressive Majority exists - to elect more progressives on a state level and fight the right wing stranglehold on state governments across the country.
We just endorsed Lisa again for this year, and here is your chance to show your support. Please give $5 today to say that you stand behind Lisa Brown.
We're working to take back the Michigan House, and several other state legislatures this year. Sign up on our website (http://www.progressivemajority.org) to hear about more endorsements from us, and more about how you can fight the extremist GOP takeover of several states (maybe including yours?).
