In an August 23rd opinion article published in The Greenville News http://www.greenvilleonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2013308240013, Karen Floyd the former chairwoman of the SC Republican Party decries the widening electoral gender gap and claims that the GOP isn’t anti-woman, just in need of more appealing messaging. She further opines that no Republican candidates supported banning birth control. However the proof of the Republican Party’s ongoing war on women is in the policy and the facts speak volumes. According to the Guttmacher Institute, in the first three months of 2013, 694 provisions that relate to reproductive health were introduced. And that’s not including a number of other measures which could make it harder for women to get birth control, cut women off from cancer screenings, or prohibit sex education programs that help prevent teen pregnancy. The great majority of these bills were passed by Republican dominated state legislatures.
On Monday, I gathered with my 70 of my progressive friends at the Bi-Lo Center in downtown Greenville to openly protest SC Governor Nikki Haley’s efforts to win a second term. We as progressives in South Carolina are determined to make Nikki Haley run on her deplorable record of cronyism, ineptitude and penny pinching and her policy of politics/profits before people.

My wonderful husband just took me to Atlanta for the weekend. On Friday night we saw the Atlanta Braves vs. the Washington Nationals at Turner Field. After a gloomy rainy day, we lucked out on the weather, just dodging a few stray rain drops and the Braves one with a home run. On Saturday we toured Ebenezer Baptist Church, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic site and the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Non-Violent Social Change.
