The Republican Party can claim all they want that they are not waging a war in women, but as long as they continue to say and do things like this, they are totally undermining that claim and exposing their true agenda.
“Just two hours after a U.S. district judge stopped a Texas law that would have eliminated Planned Parenthood’s participation in the state’s Women’s Health Program, Federal Appeals Judge Jerry E. Smith issued an emergency stay that lifted that order.
