For the very first time in my life, I am actually ashamed to be American.
Despite the overt disgust churning in my stomach right now, I'm hesitant to write this.
It goes against everything I stand for. I'm American. I love my country. After traveling the world, I know this is an amazing place. I'm patriotic and political. I believe in change from within.
But then this.
Rich House republicans in Washington would rather see little girls raped than even potentially give up an ounce of power they hold over a woman's body.
Please digest this for a moment.
These men that you and I have allowed to survive in office have publicly voted down a bill to protect children from forced marriage......based on a rumor they might open the door to overturn anti-choice laws.
