Cross Posted from the NH Labor News

A new advertisement has surfaced in New Hampshire that goes right to Congressman Guinta and the Congressional assault on Women's Rights. The irony of this commercial is there are no women in it.

I've got a problem with Frank Guinta.
Frank Guinta wants to put the government in charge of
women's medical decisions.
It may seem odd to have an advertisement about Women's health by a group of men. The fact is that all of these men have mothers.  Some of them have wives, sisters, and daughters who may have or will use Planned Parenthood.  They are also not telling women what they should be doing, only advocating to let women choose.

The attack on Women's Rights came from the right wing extremists in Washington who are trying to defund Planned Parenthood because they assist women when they decide to end their pregnancy.  This extremely small portion of Planned Parenthood is what Congressman Guinta and his TEA-Party cohorts seems to be focused on.  The fact is that the majority of women who use Planned Parenthood go for preventative care.  They help women who cannot afford to see a doctor for routine exams and check ups. They help to reduce breast cancer and ovarian cancer through early detection.

These attacks on women and Planned Parenthood are by the same TEA-Party extremist who are also attacking workers in every state.  Using abortion as the reason to close all Planned Parenthood offices is no different than attack all unions because of one bad union member.

I applaud these men for standing up for our mothers, sisters, and daughters!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
