Nobody expects the vaginal inquisition.

As I’ve been sitting here for most of the day reading about the Transvaginal Stupidfest that is sweeping the nation, it occurs to me that we need a coordinated effort to stop Republicans from crawling into our uteri (or the uterus of someone you love).
A lot of women from Texas have expressed burgeoning hope about the fact that after having been virtually ignored while Republicans moved into their vaginas (state-sanctioned rape is already law and being enforced in Texas), the rest of the country is finally paying attention. Virginia fired everyone up. Let’s capitalize on the outrage. Anti-women and anti-choice laws have been or will be introduced in virtually every state. We need to organize… NOW.
So I propose that we use this thread to drop links, news, share stories, vent, bitch, and commiserate. If you’re not comfortable leaving information in the comments, I’ve set up a gmail account under the name Uterati Jenkins: email@example.com. Email me there. I’ve also set up a google+ profile under the same name. (I’ll maintain the account at the outset until we get more organized and figure out how this is going to work.)
The way I see it, if we can amass information about all the legislation in all 50 states and compile it into easy-to-digest bites, then we can educate ourselves and also encourage the MSM to cover this news more fully.
It’s all vaginas on deck, people. (I’d say “all penises on deck, too” but really? That’s a little weird. Still, to the menfolk who are outraged by the assault on women, you’re part of the Uterati, too. So, welcome! Your first fallopian tube is free.)
As this project evolves, I’ll update this post, so stay tuned.
There are Republicans banging at our collective uterine gate. We’re not going to let them in.
***If you have any ideas about how to make this run more smoothly, please speak up. The last thing anybody wants is for me to be in charge because — ooh something shiny!!!!11

UPDATE: A link to the spreadsheet thus far. Pennsylvania and Alabama should be our next focus.
UPDATE AGAIN: I’ve decided that Google spreadsheets is the debil. So I created a chart and uploaded it to Scribd. There’s probably a fancier more high-tech way to go about it, but I’m old and don’t understand you kids and your fancy technology. (My lawn — you’re on it.)
