[Action Alert] Tell NM Senate Republicans: Women are not Corporations

Print More

If you’ve been watching this year’s legislative session like we have, you know that Republican craziness has been on full display.

But nothing has been so absurd as what happened late yesterday.

Senator Bill Sharer (the same senator who dresses like a leprechaun in the Senate and who you’ll remember from previous years who threatened to shut down the senate over LGBT recognition day and got caught misusing campaign funds to pay his personal rent) rallied every single Republican state senator to vote in favor of referring an important women’s abortion bill to the Corporations and Transportation Committee.

Nothing says ‘we respect women’ like sending important health care bills to the committee that regulates elevator safety and cattle taxes (that’s SB405 and SB232, if you’re interested).

Let’s make one thing clear: Women are Not Corporations and their health care decisions shouldn’t be debated by corporate CEOs and trucking companies.

Thankfully, Democrats stood together and defeated this ridiculous attempt to hijack legitimate debate over an important issue (read more).

But we can’t let them get away with it. Republicans tried to move abortion bills out of the Public Affairs Committee three times this afternoon, and there’s no guarantee they won’t do it again.

Help us send Senator Sharer and Republican Senators a message: Women are not Corporations.
