It’s really simple, and worth your time. And your body. Here’s what I said to my Senators. Feel free to copy + paste.
Dear Senator - I just learned that HB1130 just passed in the House and now is on it’s way to the Senate. Please, do your part to protect my rights as a human and stop this bill. From one human to another, shouldn’t I have the right to make decisions for myself?
“Sandra Fluke plays a role here, too. By making the case that women need insurance coverage that includes birth control—to protect their health in some cases, and in others, yes, simplyto have sex—she is reminding us that of course this is part of who we are. We don’t have to modestly avert our eyes from that reality or keep quiet about it, either. That’s what President Obama understood when he told Fluke her parents should be proud of her. Feminists have plenty to be proud of Fluke for, too. For standing up to Limbaugh, for sure, but also for helping to make the revolt against slut shaming as mainstream as she is.”
