Highest Ranking Female Texas Republican Blasts GOP Effort To Legislate Women’s Bodies



Earlier this year, Texas Republicans forced the nation’s most restrictive anti-abortion legislation into law. For years, Texas has been the epicenter of the GOP’s war on women and the war against reproductive rights. Because of that, women across the nation are rejecting Republicans at the ballot in record numbers. It is already well known that female Democrats in Texas strongly oppose the legislating of women’s bodies. After all, Wendy Davis is now campaigning to be the state’s next governor. But do female Republicans approve of the anti-women stance of their male colleagues? One top woman within the Texas GOP says no.

The highest ranking elected female Texas Republican, Susan Combs, blasted the GOP for its effort to legislate women’s bodies.
Susan Combs is the highest ranking elected female Republican at the state level in Texas. She currently holds the position of Comptroller. You would think that as a Republican she just goes along with what the male hierarchy of the GOP says and does. But that is hardly the case at all. As it turns out, Combs is not happy with how her party has treated women at all.

In an interview with the Washington Times, Susan Combs blasted Texas Republicans for alienating women across the state and slammed the GOP for being obsessed with regulating lady parts.

3. A RWer told me this week he doesn't like Obamacare because the government should not have

Control over our decisions. WTH? He doesn't think controlling a woman's choice is wrong. The GOP in Texas has managed to step on too many toes and has awakened many women in Texas. I worked a voting precinct on Tuesday and noticed a portion of our population has realized it is important to GOTV. This is good, we can defeat this bunch of rats.
