Stupak is as Stupak Does
("Excuse me ladies, can I control your uterus?")
By now, you've probably heard that a certain little Health Care bill passed in the House. And that its passing was reportedly enabled by a ginormous amendment written by one Bart Stupak (D-Mich) that basically tells women who need an abortion to go fuck themselves. Yet still, a whole bunch of Democrats voted against the final bill, the majority of which represent previously Republican districts and are up for reelection in 2010. So, in reality, the Democrats simply caved to the right, weakened the bill and still couldn't convince 39 Democrats to vote in favor of the bill (to be fair, one of those Democrats was Dennis Kucinich who voted against the bill because it favors insurance companies too much).
TBogg has suggested a way to tell the 64 Democrats who voted for the Stupak amendment the same thing they told the women of the United States: Go Fuck Yourselves. Go here to donate to Planned Parenthood in Stupak's honor (or in honor of one of these Congressman) and make sure you fill out the section that sends acknowledgments to their offices. Here's Stupak's address:
