Exactly when did it become OK to use women’s private reproductive decisions as a tool in the Missouri Democratic Party?
“If Democrats interested in running for office are pro-life, Missouri Democratic Party chairman Stephen Webber says, so be it. He tells Missourinet candidate recruitment is one of his top priorities. “We’re looking for candidates that will work hard and are willing to communicate their deeply held convictions,” says Webber.” ~~~Missourinet, July 24, 2017
WE ARE HOPPING MAD AND NOT GOING TO STAND SILENTLY BY.
Has he not paid attention to the insane number of anti-reproductive bills the Missouri GOP file each year? Does he (a former state representative) truly think it’s okay for Democrats to assist the anti-women GOP agenda by ALSO inserting themselves in OB-GYN offices and interfering with medical policy & ethics?
What’s next on his list to torpedo? Equality Rights? Racial Justice? Immigrants?
Perhaps he doesn’t know that 1 in 3 women will have a legally protected abortion in their lifetime —for numerous reasons including post-miscarriage, wanted pregnancies gone horribly wrong and personal reasons that are frankly none of anyone’s business. Perhaps he is unaware of how punitive AND unconstitutional many of these anti-abortion bills actually are.
SIGN OUR PETITION HERE which we will deliver to MDP Chair Webber. Let him know you will not support the Missouri Democratic party as long as women and trusted physicians are treated so despicably.
