"If I have the honor of representing Hawai`i’s Second District in Congress, I’ll never back down from those who seek to erode the basic rights and equal protections for all Americans."
These are challenging times for women and their families. First, the economy – and the Republican focus on targeting programs that disproportionately impact women, like Social Security and Medicare. Then came this “war on women” – from Republicans in Washington trying to destroy Planned Parenthood and give your boss the right to decide if you get birth control coverage to angry right-wing mouthpieces like Rush Limbaugh insulting good women for wanting decent healthcare and privacy. I can’t believe what I’m hearing. And it’s made me more determined than ever to elect Tulsi Gabbard to Congress.
