On September 25, she stood up to Sen. John Kyl (R-AZ) before the Senate Finance Committee, giving the best “your mom” comeback in recent memory. A few days later, she shot down Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) when he proposed increased restrictions on abortion in the health care bill, telling him she was insulted, as a woman. Luckily, both amendments failed.
Stabenow made history in 2000 when she became the first woman to represent Michigan in the U.S. Senate. She is fighting the good fight on behalf of women and children, and deserves our kudos. If you are so inclined, thank Sen. Stabenow and let her know you appreciate her advocacy.
