It’s official: Brownback signs bill saying life begins at fertilization

There's nothing "pro-life" about them. They're quite willing to let women die, like Savita Halappanavar in "prolife" Ireland. This can and will happen in the U.S. if we don't push back.

It’s official: Brownback signs bill saying life begins at fertilization

Why does Sam Brownback hates women so much? Why is he so pissed that women have gained control over their bodies and lives since 1973, and don't die from back-alley abortions anymore?

It's a really weird moment when men (why are they almost always men?) impose their religious views on women? (And what about atheists? what about the millions of pro-choice people in the U.S., and around the world? Why should religious bigotry be imposed on their bodies and lives?) Men will never get pregnant: while they sure are allowed to have an opinion and be allies (or foes...) they should NOT be allowed to make or pass laws that will hurt women and families to this extent.

But women have a choice. We can sit quietly and do nothing. Or we can put our anger to work, and raise awareness about the need to elect pro-choice leaders, not anti-choice, anti-women misogynists such as Brownback. The choice is ours: we can continue to be bullied, or we can say: Enough is enough! and act up.
