Dear Gynoticians: Time to Hang It Up

From Arizona to Indiana, North Dakota to Mississippi, in statehouses and in the halls of Congress, politicians are ramping up their attacks on women's health, pushing laws and proposals that would get between women and the medical professionals who provide them care. We have a name for these politicians posing as experts — they are Gynoticians — and we've had enough of their relentless attempts to limit every woman's right to make her own health care decisions.

It's time to send a message to Gynoticians everywhere: No matter what lie you tell, no matter where you attack, we will fight back. Together, we're stronger — our voices are louder. Add your name today and tell them: Your license to practice is hereby revoked. It's time to hang up that stethoscope.

Calling all Gynoticians

Dear Gynoticians,

It's time for a reality check.

When I need a checkup, I don't call your office. If I have a fever, a cold, or a nagging cough, you aren't the one writing my prescription. And you definitely aren't performing my Pap test.

When I need medical advice, I call a doctor or medical professional. I don't want or need you to get involved, I don't want you to have a say -- but that isn't stopping you from trying to make big decisions about what kind of health care women can and can't have.

I'm tired of this nonsense. The facts aren't on your side, and neither are the scientists, medical associations, or the thousands fighting back against your laws and proposals in state after state.

So here's the deal: we're revoking your Gynotician license. Every time you propose a dangerous new restriction, we'll be there to fight back. When you make misleading, inaccurate, or just plain wrong assertions, based on your ideology and agenda rather than good policy, we'll be there to call you out. And when you try to force the rest of us to live by your ideology, we'll be there to stop you.

Every woman deserves the right to make her own health care decisions, and we're not going to be quiet until that right is secure. Period. So please -- hang up that stethoscope, put down the ultrasound wand, and leave the medical advice to actual medical professionals. (Yup, still not you!)
