She is on fire. [View all]

This is fire! From #Kentucky Sen. Karen Berg, the only woman & the only medical professional on this panel about the anti-abortion bill. She laid it all out - how the GOP are killing, disempowering & disrespecting women, all based on a medical sham. She spoke truth to power!

This woman. She’s everything. A diagnostic radiologist. She’s talking about how a fetus does not have a four chamber heart at 15 weeks. It’s not viable. She shames Kentucky elected men for making life harder for women under a bill that is a medical sham!

The only woman and physician on the committee. “You are killing women!” Then, she apologizes to the people of Kentucky for their weak ass elected’s.

Women are coming for Republicans. We won’t go back.


Watching christo-fascist white men with zero medical knowledge make laws to control women is infuriating. We don't need GYNOTICIANS.
