Democrats speak out
Voters calm in face of economic disaster
Do you remember–or have you heard of–the panic that gripped many Americans as the year 2000 approached? Americans had tons of electric equipment with timers, and many panicked thinking about all that could fail when we went from year 99 to year 00? Nothing happened. Today people remain detached as the media points out daily that, if the Republican-controlled U.S. House won’t allow an increase in the nation’s debt limit, we will suffer worldwide economic chaos, plus job losses and recession at home.
Republican supermajority increasingly hostile to girls and women
Idaho is home. It’s where many of us were raised and where we chose to raise our families. But as a mother of two daughters, I can no longer encourage them to settle here. This breaks my heart, but Idaho’s cruel laws deny their freedoms and put them at risk if they ever become pregnant. Countless families face the same gut-wrenching dilemma. Sadly, Idaho’s extreme abortion ban is just one example of the legislature’s growing hostility to girls and women. Roe v. Wade protected Idahoans from the most extreme positions of its Republican lawmakers. Once it was overturned, Idaho’s hardline abortion ban took effect. Not only does the law have near-unworkable exceptions for victims of rape and incest but it also allows the rapist’s family members to sue for cash awards if the victim receives an abortion. Terrifyingly, the ban has zero exceptions to protect the patient’s health and future fertility.
