According to Ohio State Sen. Nina Turner (D-Cleveland), “GOP” doesn’t stand for “Grand Old Party.” It stands for “Get Out of my Panties.”

State Sen. Turner made her statement via t-shirt; one she wore recently to protest Ohio Republicans’ renewed efforts to de-fund Planned Parenthood. The press conference was organized by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio in opposition to a bill that would put Planned Parenthood at the bottom of the state’s priority system for federal family planning funds, reports The Huffington Post.

The provocative slogan was used by Turner to highlight a disregard for women´s rights by the Republican party. She declared  at the conference, “If they continue their pursuit to condemn women, we will not stand for it,” she said.

African-American women often turn to Planned Parenthood for affordable health care. So much so, in fact, that the organization even has a section of its site dedicated to black patients —“ African Americans for Planned Parenthood.”

Turner, who confirmed she may run for Ohio Secretary of State in 2014, is known as an advocate for women’s reproductive and healthcare rights. She introduced a protest bill earlier this year that would restrict men’s ability to get a Viagra prescription.

“The Ohio state Legislature may also reconsider during its lame duck session the so-called ‘heartbeat bill,’ which would ban abortions after the fetal heartbeat is detected, with no exceptions for rape, incest or life of the mother,” according to the Huffington Post.

What do you think of the t-shirt? Too much or just right?

    Bravo! I want one of those shirts. There should be no legislation on what happens in a woman’s body.

    I still cant understand why women’s bodies are on the legislative table, especially with men making decisions. I agree with this woman completely. Men need to back off.

    • get real

      “women can vote anyway they want” is what you gonna get from this crowd. Dam Romney and his bunch wanting to make your womanly decisions for you.

No thanks
