The creep of personhood results in laws and actions that take away women's constitutional personhood. There is no (gender-neutral) way to extend personhood rights to fertilized eggs without depriving women of the same rights.
It's hard to find anything about Rep. Cory Gardner's record that supports Fox 31 reporter Eli Stokols' claim that Gardner is leading the charge on immigration to "addresses questions of border security and citizenship without alienating Hispanics."
Rep. Mike Coffman stands alone as a major Colorado politician in close election who has not withdrawn his previous support for the personhood amendment, which would ban all abortion, even in the case of rape and incest.
Mitt Romney has worn coats-of-many-colors in his political life. His flipping and flopping and weaving and dodging and lying and hiding are so well-known that they hardly even evoke commentary anymore.
Linked up with the others, Coffman and Coors could do considerable damage to medical research, women's rights, and the dreams of family for childless couples. Fortunately, democracy provides us a remedy. Remember in November!
I write this missive in the year 2014 from my small, poorly ventilated office in the Shandong Province of China where my job and millions of others have been outsourced by President Mitt Romney and his Republican allies in Congress.
The battle to reverse Roe v. Wade is essentially the same war being waged against undocumented worker, only on the reproductive front. It is a thinly veiled effort at subjugating what is viewed as a threat to job security.
"America's Comeback Team" of Romney/Ryan will come back for women's choice, women's health and women's pay, and they will not stop until all of the progress made in the fight for women's equality over the past 50 years has been erased.
It is sad and embarrassing to admit this, but the impetus for most of these reproductive control bills has come from men. Over time, the number of men that believe they must control women like this will decline. But women cannot await universal male enlightenment.
Thanks to the brilliance of tweeter @PaulRyanGosling, who took the Ryan Gosling "Hey Girl" to a whole new level over the weekend by mashing up Ryan Gosling with Paul Ryan, the ball was already rolling when GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan came to town.
As the personhood initiatives have come and gone in Colorado, we've seen the different reactions of politicians who endorse personhood. Will Rep. Paul Ryan, who supported personhood legislation in Congress, stand by his decision?
