WASHINGTON — Vice President Pence cast a tie-breaking Senate vote Thursday to pass legislation that will allow states to withhold federal funds from Planned Parenthood and other health care providers that perform abortions.The measure, which now goes to President Trump for his signature, dismisses an Obama-era rule banning states from denying federal funds to such organizations.Pence’s vote was needed to break a 50-50 tie. Republicans Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska broke with their party, voting against the measure.

Sorry about yet another political post, but I didn’t even know this was going on? I knew it was part of the republicans horrendous health care plan, but I  am the only one who feels like this was a sucker punched?  Fuck you each and every one of these Republicans.  I also want to thank SenatorCollinsns and Murkowski who actually stood up against their own party and voted against this.  I want every woman who believes in reproductive care to donate to planned parenthood if you are not already doing it. Apparently, this life-saving organization  Also, just for those pro-life assholes who are cheering this move, I would like to remind you guys that it is ALREADY A LAW that makes illegal for tax funds to fund abortions. So this is just another unnecessary attack on one of the few healthcare providers for low-income women.

Tomi Lahren Is Pro-Choice, But Not A Feminist | Gurl.com

Over the last week or so, people have been abuzz over the news that the internet’s favorite blonde, bold conservative woman–23-year-old Tomi Lahren–was suspended and subsequently fired from her gig as young conservative loudmouth for The Blaze, a right-wing website. Tomi usually does fiery video commentary of her hot take of the day, like calling women’s rights protesters “snowflakes” or saying that Beyonce’s song “Formation” is “unfair to little white girls.”  Why would someone who isn’t some alt-right, conservative, Trump loving individual even know who she is? Because her videos constantly go viral on Twitter and Facebook; the more racist, the more clicks. Even I’ll admit to hate-watching her videos whenever they popped up on my Twitter feed. The fact that she’s a conventionally attractive white woman doesn’t hurt her notoriety either. If you haven’t seen her on your feed, you might know her from her controversial appearance on The Daily Show a few months back, in which she tried to defend some of her most racist, Islamophobic comments to date.So, why did she get fired? Because she revealed that she’s pro-choice on The View. She defended her stance by claiming that it coincides with her politics as a conservative and a lover of the U.S. Constitution: “I’m someone that’s for limited government. So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies. I can sit here and say that, as a Republican and I can say, you know what, I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.”

I hate Tomi Lahren. I can’t even listen to her voice without wanting to punch her in the face. No, I’m not advocating violence but this woman is a racist asshole who if she ever came down from Dallas to San Antonio, I would be hard pressed not to slap her in the face. This article pretty much breaks down why white feminists need to stop applauding Tomi. Just because she may have had one point doesn’t erase the rest of her awful racist behavior in the past.
