Lysistrata Redux

Women of America, your reproductive rights are under attack. The male-dominated bastions of church and government want to turn the clock back to a time when women were subjugated by enforced pregnancy and child birth. If you are sexually active with a male partner we have a powerful weapon to fight back: It is time to go on strike. No more sex with men until the GOP stop their attacks on our right to contraception, abortion, and affordable reproductive health care. This will get the attention of our male “supporters” very quickly and they will rally to the cause. Just watch how quickly the GOP drops this issue if men across the country are denied access to women’s bodies! Let’s re-claim our power, sisters!
