Ultra conservative Republicans and Democrats — because let’s not kid ourselves that it’s just Republicans pushing and voting for these regulations — advocating these kinds of laws are totally out of step with mainstream America. I have to have faith that following these bills that eliminate access to pap smears, vasectomies, cancer screenings and birth control, there will be a backlash that will remove all of these hateful people from office.
