DCCC: July 31, 2017

Dear Mr. VP,

Seems we don’t even need y’all on the other side of the aisle, since we’re over here throwing folks with uteruses under the bus all on our own

Yes, the chair of the DCCC says there will be no litmus test on abortion and they’ll fund pro-life candidates.

To which I say: fuck that. Remember how more than 80% of the people who have called Congressional offices to oppose Trump are female-identified? Remember how it was two female Senators who crossed the line to vote with you against repealing the ACA? Remember how many women (and LGBT folks) voted for Hillary, sort of like our lives depended on it? Right. Women are fighting all your fights right now. 

And this is the thanks? “Oh, it’s cool. We’ll still support candidates who want to tell you what you can do with your body.”

I was a diehard Bernie supporter. But it wasn’t okay when he stumped for pro-life Heath Mello, and this isn’t okay now. My bodily autonomy isn’t negotiable. 

You’re not doing much winning lately, but here’s one for you.
