What You Won’t Hear From the Defund Obamcare Town Hall

In a last-ditch effort to spread misinformation about Obamacare, opponents are hitting the road on a “Defund Obamacare Town Hall Tour.” In each of the states they’re heading to, there are thousands of women and families who stand to benefit from the new health care law.

Gynotician of the Week Ohio State Rep. Christina Hagan

This week's Gynotician was appointed to political office while she was a college senior, finishing her degree in Business Administration. Three months into her first term, Representative Christina Hagan (R-Ohio) hit the ground running, pushing extreme and dangerous legislation that would restrict a woman’s right to make their own personal medical decisions. In June 2011, she took to the microphone during floor deliberation on the "heartbeat" bill —t hat could ban abortion even before many women know they are pregnant — and said, "I'm not only charged with the responsibility to be looking out for my generation, but also the future generations to come."

Like any good Gynotician, Governor Nathan “Back Door” Deal just couldn’t resist using women’s health and safety as a political tool. Deal has made it clear that he won’t let a little thing like the democratic process stop him from restricting access to health care: after Georgia legislators rejected an effort to ban abortion coverage in the state health plan, Deal’s allies used a back-door administrative route to do exactly that.

Senator Ted Cruz’s Misinformation Tour Starts in 11 Days…Don’t Let Him Have the Last Word

Republican lawmakers have relentlessly tried to repeal Obamacare — despite the fact that the health care law has already helped millions of women and families get the care they need, when they need it. Opponents of the law don’t care that you can no longer be denied insurance coverage because of a pre-existing condition, that women can’t be charged higher premiums simply because of their gender, and that you can now access birth control with no co-pay — they outright oppose the birth control benefit. Their intractable opposition has led them to vote to repeal the law 40 times (yes you read that right).
