Tell the S.C. Legislature: Stop Lee Bright's War On Women

COLUMBIA — Here is something I just got from the Birmingham, Mich.-based


Yesterday, state senator Lee Bright introduced an amendment to the state budget targeting Planned Parenthood in order keep them from receiving any state or other funds. This is purely a politically motivated attack, and it will hurt the many South Carolinians who rely on Planned Parenthood for services like breast and cervical screenings, STD testing and treatment, and birth control. This move does not save South Carolina any money.

Senator Bright's budget amendment, Amendment 27, may come up for debate as early as today. Use this email form at to tell the Senate that you stand with Planned Parenthood and the many South Carolina women and men who rely on their services.

Here is a sample of what you can write to the state Senate:

I strongly oppose Lee Bright's amendment targeting Planned Parenthood, ESPECIALLY given the fact that right wing extremists are accusing the Internal Revenue Service of targeting them. Planned Parenthood is the ONLY entity that serves the health care needs of women in all 46 of our counties - no other medical entity has even 40% of the services that Planned Parenthood offers. To persecute Planned Parenthood in the manner that Lee Bright is doing is the epitome of the GOP's war on women. Reject this kind of misogyny by voting against the Bright amendment. I certainly am watching. Those who vote for the Bright amendment can be certain that you will be held accountable by the women of this state on November 4, 2014 - I will see to it.

President Obama, Attorney General Holder and HHS Secretary Sebelius (the latter of whom is celebrating a birthday today) ultimately bypassed the Texas State Health Department and awarded Planned Parenthood a grant at least for this year.  The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control stands to lose all of its federal funding in the future if Bright has his way, and would likely order the breakup of DHEC into two different agencies just to ensure that South Carolina still gets its environmental funding from the Environmental Protection Agency.

Lee Bright's complete and utter hatred of women has come to surface.  It is time for the women of South Carolina to fight back against Bright and the thugs helping him in the state legislature.
