The Winners of February's Hall of Fame and Shame
Unfortunately, anti-choice politicians in the states keep taking big political gambles by continuing the War on Women. But, at the same time, we are amazed by lawmakers who refuse to play politics that threaten women's lives.
This month we were wowed by Oklahoma State Rep. Doug Cox (R).
It can take nerves of steel to speak out against bills designed to chip away at a woman's right to choose in an anti-choice state legislature.
"We keep passing stuff like this, they'll be done in back alleys with coat hangers, people.... [Abortions] are done in clinics inspected by the Health Department under sterile, medical conditions. This bill basically is trying to intimidate the providers who do those."
Rep. Cox's stance earned him a spot in our Hall of Fame this month. If you love this story as much as we do, share it on Facebook.
But for every pro-choice champion we find, there's always an anti-choice challenger close behind. Which brings us to the "winner" of our "Hall of Shame:"
Somebody must've missed a biology class because she told reporters that she supports this bill because a fetus is "the largest organ in a body."
We created a graphic to give Rep. McClurkin a mini-anatomy lesson that you can check out on our Facebook page.
There are a lot of people who could have earned a spot in our Hall of Fame or Hall of Shame in February. Who caught your eye this month?
