Awesome woman of the week: Georgia State Rep. Yasmin Neal

In response to the GA General Assembly’s abortion legislation, House Democrats have proposed a bill to ban vasectomies. From the press release:

“Thousands of children are deprived of birth in this state every year because of the lack of state regulation over vasectomies. It is patently unfair that men can avoid unwanted fatherhood by presuming that their judgment over such matters is more valid than the judgment of the General Assembly, while women’s ability to decide is constantly up for debate throughout the United States.” - Rep. Neal, who authored the bill

“The Republican attack on women’s reproductive rights is unconscionable. What is more deplorable is the hypocrisy of HB 954’s author. If we follow his logic, we believe it is the obligation of this General Assembly to assert an equally invasive state interest in the reproductive habits of men and substitute the will of the government over the will of adult men.” - Rep. Stacey Abrams, House Minority Leader [AJC]
