Handmaids Protested The GOP's Health Care Bill Outside The Capitol

Handmaids Protested The GOP's Health Care Bill Outside The Capitol Handmaids Protested The GOP's Health Care Bill Outside The Capitol

Cosmopolitan devoted an article to a particularly theatrical Planned Parenthood protest - in which volunteers donned white bonnets and red capes. Women here are treated as nothing more than wives, servants, or breeders, referred to as "handmaids"; with Offred being one of these women denigrated and exploited for her fertility in ongoing efforts to repopulate the country, though she still fights for her freedom and for the husband and child snatched away from her.

Nowadays implying legislation you disagree with will plunge the USA into a dystopian, theocratic regime where women are sex slaves is all the rage with both the media and Planned Parenthood. According to Cosmo, the protest reflected Planned Parenthood's concerns that "if a new health bill is passed limiting women's rights to abortion even further than they already are, the country could be heading for a similarly bleak future". The abortion giant claims that women will lose essential healthcare if they are defunded, despite Republican claims that funds would be re-allocated to community health centers which would provide care instead. Elena Lipsiea, one of the women who dressed as a handmaid, told The Hill: "Dressing up as a handmaid gives a clear message to our administration and the Senate about how seriously we take their decisions and how radically it can affect our lives". A procession of women in pairs dressed in red robes and white bonnets-most recently leading a Planned Parenthood protest in Washington against a Republican-sponsored bill meant to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

Google Slapped With Record Antitrust Fine Over Shopping Feature
KitGuru Says: I have never fully understood the objection the EC has had to Google's shopping/price comparison search engine. Google responded by saying it "respectfully disagrees" with the EU's conclusions and could challenge the decision in court.

The Republican-written bill targets Planned Parenthood by defunding the health provider for at least a year.
