The 99 Report Radio Show for Friday 2/24/12 : More on the GOP War On Women...

Listen to internet radio with 99 Report on Blog Talk Radio

This Episode does focus on the current GOP war on Women and their insufferable attempt to turn Women into their New Minority Target of Choice. The Message that is being sent to Women and our Girls and young women is that their health and well being and their bodies are merely Baby or Sperm Vessels. It is a deplorable, pathetic Power Play, it is yet another way for them to Hate Monger and Fear Monger, it shows that they don't respect Women or our Bodies or our Minds or Well Being.I am concerned why our Health and Self Esteem should not be given some serious Consideration.But the language and disrespect that is being shown is not like anything that we have seen in our lifetime.
I wrote a longer post over at Watergate Summer, About Why Women Matter that has more on this issue and why maybe we really need a March On DC for Women. Two weeks ago I did focus on the need for Planned Parenthood to be defended for the Medical Care they provide, yet now the insanity has reached new lows as the Congress held a special hearing on Contraception last week with Religious leaders. As a Nurse I am horrified by the ignorance that is being displayed and peddled as to the health needs of Women and our Bodies.

(1) What happened to Separation of Church and State ? And why is no one even mentioning that issue.
(2) What is the message that we are sending to young women and girls about their worth and their bodies ?
(3) Why is the Media being allowed to frame this as a Religious Issue, when it is about Women's Rights and Our Health ?

The Contraception "Religious" Hearing in Congress last week 2/17/12

Elijah Cummings and Ms. Mahoney speak out about the "Contraception" hearing with the Religious Leaders. ( Mr.Cummings part got very little airplay, and I want him heard, as he speaks out beautifully about the importance of Contraception in our History. Why the Congress is allowed to have such a hearing as it clearly violates Church And State Integrity, and why they are allowed to have hearings about Women's health and Medical care with Religious leaders is beyond me. I keep waiting for a Hearing on the Benefits of Leaches and Witch Doctors.) The audio for this is included in the program 4 minutes.

DO read William Rivers Pitt's Post called "To My Mother" in Truthout, it is an excellent read and so well spoken about the latest GOP antics....

### For Immediate Release ###
2/20/12 Riverside CA
Contact Jeff Green 951-233-2903
Occupy Riverside and ACCE will meet at the De Lo Santos' home 2370 Layton Court Riverside 92503 for a 5:30 pm press conference on Monday and at 5:30 am on Tuesday in anticipation of the sheriff's arrival to help keep the family in their home. Art De Lo Santos was arrested on Thursday the 16th at the offices of Freddy Mac for refusing to leave the bank until someone there would talk to him about his home. Chase, the mortgage servicer has washed their hands of Art's case after profiting from the foreclosure at the expense of investors who bought the mortgage backed securities. Art, who can make the payments, is as good a customer as any who would buy the home at a much lower price at a foreclosure auction. Why is the 85% taxpayer owned Freddy Mac acting against the interest of the taxpayers buy not letting Art pay his loan if they will make less by selling into this deflated market? Please join us at 5:30 on Monday and at 5:30 am on Tuesday where we will have several occupiers spending the night Monday night to ensure we have a big group greeting the sheriff.

ACCE will also be canvassing the neighborhood around 1:00 on Monday afternoon, asking neighbors to support Arturo by contacting the mayor and city council folk.

Monday 5:30 pm
Tuesday 5:30 am

We are the 99%. So are you.
