Ep. 23: Another Radical Judge Telling Women What to Do? Like Hell!
Damn it! Another radical judge with another insane decision about every woman’s right to decide for herself. Politicians and judges must never tell a woman – or a couple – when to start or expand a family. EVER!
Arizona’s Attorney General asked the court to implement the 19th century abortion ban that predates PREDATES Arizona becoming a state in this nation. BEFORE it BECAME a state.

And another handmaiden on the court did this. She just said, “Sure!” With a few strokes on a keyboard, the 1864 law became enforceable in Arizona. 1864 – 48 years BEFORE Arizona became a state in February of 1912.
Apparently, ReTHUGliQans are trying to outdo each other with just how cruel and crazy they can show themselves to be.
This law – like others across the nation – puts doctors in jail for performing routine abortion care or prescribing a medication that could cause an abortion.
Do you know how many medication trials include pregnant women?
In my podcast #12, Dr. Lealah told us women who are pregnant are almost universally excluded from trials on medications. We already see what is happening at the pharmacy. Headlines galore.
Washington Post: Abortion Bans Complicate Access to Drugs For Cancer, Arthritis, Even Ulcers.
Reuters: State Abortion Bans Prevent Women From Getting Essential Medication.
CNN: Women With Chronic Conditions Struggle To Find Medications After Abortion Laws Limit Access.
Dear God Almighty!
This 1864 Arizona law mandates two to five years in prison for anyone who provides the means for an abortion as well. Does that mean if I send money to help a woman in Arizona to go next door to California for healthcare that ought to be in her own area, healthcare that is so common that one out of four women across the nation have it at some point in their lives, does this mean that Arizona can prosecute and put me in jail for 2-5 years regardless of where I live in the nation?
ReTHUGliQans’ actions are barbaric.
ReTHUGliQans’ keep begging us to recognize them as the knuckle-dragging, cave-dwelling Neanderthals that they are. Alright! Alright!
I hereby recognize you as a bunch of knuckle-dragging, cave-dwelling Neanderthals. (My apologies to the Neanderthals of yesteryear.)
Satisfied? Now go crawl back to your caves until you decide to act like you actually love 21st century America, because right now, you are “people who claim to love America, but … clearly can’t stand Americans.” Yes, that is a line from one of my favorite movies, “The American President.”
As much as I would love to continue to rant and rave-on-end about this, what you need is from me – more than entertainment and additional insight – is for me to share with you the specific, critical actions you can take right now that will truly make a difference.
We only have time for effective political action, because we need to have Roe v Wade enacted into national law, asap.
The first day that we can make that happen IN CONGRESS, specifically in the U.S. Senate, is January 3rd which is the first day of the very next congressional session. Right now there fails to be ONE SINGLE ReTHUGliQan in the U.S. Senate who will vote to make Roe the law of the land.
Not ONE. We have 48 Democrats in the U.S. Senate who will. We need TWO more Pro-Choice Dems.
That happens when you and I return every Democrat to the Senate as well as all the Democrats to the U.S. House of Representatives, AND we elect at least TWO additional Democrats to the U.S.Senate.
When we do this, we have the votes to make Roe v Wade the law of the land.
That is the reason that I’m focusing on the U.S. Senate campaigns.
Right now, we have four U.S. Senators who need our help to be re-elected and five U.S. Senate candidates who are kicking ass and with our help, they’ll be elected to the U.S. Senate as they can kick our ReTHUGliQan opponents to the curb. And voila! We have the numbers we need in the U.S. Senate.
I give you the following nine candidates in nine beautiful states across the nation who, with our help, will make Roe the law the land.
Here are our four current U.S. Senators who need our help to get over the line in Roevember and return to our nation’s capitol to continue doing good things for you and me, our families, our communities, and our nation.
Senator Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada
Senator Mark Kelly in Arizona
Senator Rafael Warnock in Georgia
Senator Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire
This keeps us at 48. That’s important.
To build on that, here are the five Democrats who can flip the U.S Senate seats in their states and give us the magic number so we can rock and roll making Roe v Wade the law of the land come January.
Tim Ryan in Ohio
Cheri Beasley in North Carolina
John Fetterman in Pennsylvania
Val Demings in Florida
Mandela Barnes in Wisconsin
You’ll find links to all nine of these campaigns on my website: sassypoliticalcoach.com. Scroll on the homepage. You’ll see their photos. Click on their names and boom! You’ll go to straight to their website where you can volunteer to help.
Now, I’m going to share with you two battle-tested ways that actually help win elections. These are the two things that YOU can do to help make a real difference for our election night victories.
Between the two different actions, you’ll be using the political power you possess at the tip of your tongue, the tips of your fingers, the bottoms of your feet. In other words, you possess more political power than you know.
Let’s unleash it and channel it expertly. Alright, let’s get to it.
Central to any campaign is knowing which voters will cast their ballots for our Democratic candidates. Direct person-to-person contact, talking with and listening to voters is the most effective way to increase support and votes for our Democratic candidates. And most importantly, to know which voters we can count on to cast their ballots for our Democratic candidates.
That is why I’m recommending these two critically important actions that are central to every winning campaign.
1. The first action is what I call Cell Phone Activism – otherwise known as phone banking. But I call it “cell phone activism” because … doesn’t that sound more snazzy?! 🙂
The campaign will train you to be a cell phone activist and give you what you need to be successful in helping with this critical part of the campaign – who to talk with, scripts to use, phone numbers, etc.
The beauty of today’s technology – cell phones and laptops – is that we can do cell phone activism from wherever we live. Be in one state and call another. Heck, call a different time zone. It’s all good.
Now, to eliminate the mystery of phone banking – or cell phone activism – and set expectations so you know exactly what to expect, I have an entire podcast and a video dedicated to breaking down cell phone activism.
Listen to podcast #3 or watch the video or both! They are on various social media channels and podcast platforms. Of course, they’re also on my website: sassypoliticalcoach.com.
2. The second action that is an ever more powerful way that you can influence a campaign is to walk and talk with neighbors. Yep, it works.
Walking and talking with neighbors is about exercising the political power you possess at the tip of your tongue and the bottoms of your feet ‘cause you’ll be doing a whole lot of walking. (Make sure that you wear very comfortable shoes!)
To walk and talk with neighbors face-to face is obviously something that requires you to be on the ground in that state. Whether you live in the area or have to travel to it, the campaign would love to have you. Just like with cell phone activism, the campaign will train you.
Again, I also have a podcast dedicated to this very subject – Episode 9. Just for you, I’ve also created downloadable step-by-step documents: one for walking and talking to neighbors and another for cell phone activism. You’ll find all of this at my website.
Whether by phone or at someone’s door, speaking with voters that a campaign has identified as important is critical to a campaign’s victory.
Pick one of the U.S. Senate candidates and dedicate a few hours a week between now and the final election day on November 8th.
Let’s just commit to channel our rage and fury in politically effective ways that get us where we want to go!
All you have to do is go to my website. On the homepage as I’ve said before are photos of the nine candidates. Click their name and bam, you’ll be ready to sign up to volunteer.
