I Get E-mails…

From the President! Of the United States! Of America!

Friend —

This evening, at 11:15 p.m., [Saturday, 11/7/09] the House of Representatives voted to pass their health insurance reform bill. Despite countless attempts over nearly a century, no chamber of Congress has ever before passed comprehensive health reform. This is history.

But you and millions of your fellow Organizing for America supporters didn’t just witness history tonight — you helped make it… You spoke up. And you were heard.

I beg to differ, Mr. President. About that being heard part, specifically.

How can I put this succinctly?

Oh, I know!

The Stupak Amendment stinks.

I’m tired of women’s reproductive health care rights being thrown under the bus. And I am not alone in this weariness. I also know that chipping away at abortion rights will not get rid of abortion. Ever. It will just make it unsafe. And that means women will die. And that is some fucked up shit.

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW, MR. PRESIDENT?!
