Video: Rep. Connolly Rips GOP “Disrespect,” “Rampant” “Misogyny” Towards Planned Parenthood Head


    What Rep. Gerry Connolly said, times 1 million. Thank you Rep. Connolly for standing up to these right-wing bullies. For instance, as Rep. Connolly correctly points out: “The misogyny rampant here today tells us what is really going on here. This isn’t about some bogus video, the author of whom doesn’t have the courage to appear here, nor would the majority call him, because they know he’ll make a bad witness under oath. This is about a conservative philosophy that says we are constitutionalists…we believe in rugged individualism and personal liberty. With one big carve out though — there’s an asterisk in that assertion. And this is, except when it comes to women controlling their own bodies and making their own health decisions. You would never know that the constitution, according to the Supreme Court, guarantees a right of choice.”
