Your Thoughts

RMC wants to hear thoughts and feedback from our members more than just through blog comments and emails. We’ll be posting polls here regularly for our readers to answer. Please take a moment to read through our polls and let us know where you stand on important issues, or where you think the RMC should be heading.

    I am so excited to see a site like this up! I was just reading an article today about the “Recession Rx” program in Indiana through Planned Parenthood. They are offering cheaper health care (birth contol) to people effected by the economic downturn. I was so glad to see that this issue is something RMC is striving for everywhere! I can’t wait to see more.

  2. Laura Greenwood says:

    Wow. This is a great opportunity to get out the world that there ARE pro-choice republicans and that choice SHOULD matter to the GOP!

    I’m a young woman who cares about women’s right to control their bodies. I care about making sure traumatized sexual assault survivors are not re-victimized by being denied access to emergency contraception. I care about giving teens medically accurate sex education which will help them stay healthy and achieve their goals. I care about stem cells, and the hope of healing family members from life long illnesses. I ALSO care about making sure our country is safe, that there are good jobs and I that I won’t be left with a crushing national debt. That’s why I care about the future of my Party.

    I look forward to seeing how this blog energizes pro-choice republicans and hearing what they are thinking!

    Are you quite sure that Scott Brown is pro-choice? There are numerous clips of him coming out against reproductive rights during interviews in the past. I’m very worried that he’ll contribute to the erosion of our reproductive rights and the rollback of Roe v. Wade. At least it’s clear where Coakley stands on this. Someone reassure me please – choice is my most important issue.

    Has anyone heard about this web series starting tomorrow, BUMP (www.bumptheshow.com)? The website says this:

    “In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court gave women a choice. Thirty-seven years later, we’re giving them a voice. BUMP+, a provocative web series from Yellow Line Studio that follows three women facing unintended pregnancies, premieres January 22nd. Watch the episodes. Share your story. Join the conversation.”

    Any thoughts?

  5. Where do I go to find out which of the newly elected GOP candidates are PRO_CHOICE? It looks to me like we are about to get hammered by these people. They got elected on Tea Party issues and may swing around to take away personal freedoms. HELP!

  6. Nick Fineman says:

    Doug Wright wrote the book for “Grey Gardens” and adapted Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” for Broadway. He won the Tony Award for best play for “I Am My Own Wife,” as well as the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

    But he might have an even bigger audience for this Facebook message addressed to Republican friends considering a vote for Mitt Romney. The post went viral Thursday evening:

    I wish my moderate Republican friends would simply be honest. They all say they’re voting for Romney because of his economic policies (tenuous and ill-formed as they are), and that they disagree with him on gay rights. Fine. Then look me in the eye, speak with a level clear voice, and say, “My taxes and take-home pay mean more than your fundamental civil rights, the sanctity of your marriage, your right to visit an ailing spouse in the hospital, your dignity as a citizen of this country, your healthcare, your right to inherit, the mental welfare and emotional well-being of your youth, and your very personhood.”

    It’s like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. You’re still complicit. You’re still perpetuating anti-gay legislation and cultural homophobia. You don’t get to walk away clean, because you say you “disagree” with your candidate on these issues.

    Thank you for your excellent and needed voices on women’s health and reproductive freedom. Keep up the good work.
