Tell the GOP: Pregnant Women Are Not "Hosts"

This petition had 18,115 supporters

​This just in: A Virginia State Senator just called pregnant women "hosts." He said, ‘I'm not going to assume a right to kill it just because the child's host (some refer to them as mothers) doesn't want it."

And coming from the party who brought us “legitimate rape” and “binders full of women,” the GOP has proven once again that they’re just totally out of touch with women.

But this guy, Steve Martin, is only just saying what Republicans around the country think. That women are second class citizens who shouldn’t be responsible for managing their own body.

EMILY’s List wants to help more pro-choice Democratic women get elected to public office at all levels of government, from the Virginia State Senate, to the White House so women can be in charge of their own bodies and their health decisions.
