“I’m flattered that you’re all so concerned about my vagina. But no means no.”
– Rep. Lisa Brown, D-West Bloomfield
This is the comment my colleague Rep. Lisa Brown made yesterday on the House floor speaking against HB 5711, a bill that would severely limit women’s access to basic health care and reproductive health centers.
Today, Rep. Brown was BANNED from speaking on the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives.
Please help us stand up to this attack on democracy. Please show your support by making a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can give TODAY.

Yesterday, we stood up again to the Republicans’ extreme agenda and told the truth.
The Michigan House Republicans continue their attacks of:
- Taking away the rights of women to basic health care, privacy and access to reproductive health centers (HB 5711)
- Taking away legitimate voters’ rights to cast their ballots by making registering to vote and voting more difficult (SB 751, 754, 803, 823 and 824)
- Now they have gone so far as to BAN a Democratic member of the House from speaking on the floor and representing her constituents.
Whether you agree or disagree with HB 5711, it is clear to everyone –
The Michigan House Republicans will stop at NOTHING to advance their extreme agenda and will do everything in their power to silence those who oppose them.
The House Democrats are fighting back against this Republican overreach, but we can’t do it without your help.
House Democratic Floor Leader
