I’m jumping on the wheezing Hay Ladies! here to show that despite the blog’s superlag, I have in no way given up on writing about feminism and women’s rights in Texas. To the contrary, I’m doing more work for RHRealityCheck.org, which includes the incredibly depressing and tedious job of calling out the State of Texas on the ever-growing amounts of bullshit they’re trying to sell to women.
If you were at the Texas Women’s Health Program meeting on Tuesday at DSHS, you probably saw anti-choice shill Abby Johnson trot out a list of what she said were 181 alternatives to Planned Parenthood in Austin, should the health care group be kicked out of participating in the TWHP. I called the providers on that list. One of them was an endoscopy clinic. Turns out, they don’t do pap smears at endoscopy clinics. Surprise.
