Email from Sen. Kay Bailey

 I wrote her asking to please stop the war on women. She pretty much told me I could suck it. Then went on about some junk about how she wants to reduce abortion by screwing over the place that gives out birth control and restricting what insurance will cover. 

I've posted the whole stupid thing but wanted to point something particularly frustrating out. 
She wants "to prohibit federal funding for abortion in U.S. military facilities". Wow the women you think are smart enough to defined and die for our country don't deserve to make decisions about their own bodies? You can die for this country but if you need this particular medical procedure your on your own... Even more depressing is we know there is a hell of a lot of rape and sexual assault happening to women in the military. People can be real disgusting some times.     

[Dear Friend:
     Thank you for contacting me regarding the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.  I welcome your
 thoughts and comments.
     Through a longstanding public law known as the Hyde Amendment, current federal law prohibits the
 use of taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions.  On January 20, 2011, U.S. Representative
 Chris Smith (R-NJ) introduced H.R. 3, the No Tax Payer Funding for Abortion Act, which would reaffirm
 the current restrictions put in place by the Hyde Amendment.  H.R. 3 would guarantee that no funds 
authorized or appropriated by federal law shall be expended for any abortion, including health care 
services furnished in the District of Columbia.  A similar bill to H.R. 3 has been introduced in the Senate 
by Senator Roger Wicker (D-MS).  S. 906 has been referred to Senate Committee on Finance, of which 
I am not a member.
     I believe we must do everything possible to reduce the incidence of abortions in Texas.  In addition to 
supporting the Hyde Amendment, I have co-sponsored bills to outlaw partial birth abortions and to prohibit 
federal funding for abortion in U.S. military facilities, federal employee insurance plans, and Medicaid.
     H.R. 3 was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on May 4, 2011 by a vote of 251-175.  
Should H.R. 3 or S. 906 come before the full Senate, you may be assured that I will keep your views in 
     I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me on any issue that is
 important to you.
