Former model and actress Janine Turner at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday night warned that men could take away your rights.
“God gives us our rights, not government. If man gives us our rights, then man can take them away,” she said near the end of her speech, putting special emphasis on the word “man.”
“As James Madison forewarned, and history has proven, ‘men are not angels,'” Turner added.
Republicans this year have fought off allegations that they are waging a legislative “war on women.” Republicans have pushed through a record number of bills to reduce access to legal abortions since taking over many state legislatures in 2010. Members of the GOP have also sought to defund Planned Parenthood, which provides preventative health care to lower-income women, and restrict access to contraception.
Most of Turner’s speech was dedicated to bashing President Barack Obama, claiming he didn’t respect the Constitution and pushed a “gimme mentality” on Americans.
“America was built with her hands at work, not with her hands out,” she said, alluding to the theme of the Convention, “We built this.”

Trump sabotages Obama-era chemical law — by stacking the EPA with industry lobbyists
Former President Barack Obama signed an overhaul of a landmark law in 2016 intended to protect people from being killed or maimed by chemicals, but Donald Trump is sabotaging the law to help the profits of chemical companies.
David Fischer, a former employee of the American Chemistry Council, recently replaced former chemical industry lobbyist Nancy Beck, another former employee of the council, as deputy assistant administrator at the EPA chemical safety office. The council whose members include DuPont and ExxonMobil Chemical spent $9.3 million on federal lobbying in 2018.
Does the panic on Team Trump mean Robert Mueller closing in on criminal conspiracy charges?
As Rudy Giuliani spins a story no one can follow and his boss melts down on Twitter, intriguing hints emerge
As the whole world knows, CNN reported last Thursday that Michael Cohen was prepared to testify that Donald Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with Russian emissaries supposedly bearing dirt on Hillary Clinton. And ever since then, the atmosphere around the Russia scandal has changed. If there is any real evidence that Trump knew about that meeting and approved it, it goes a long way toward proving one element of a criminal conspiracy that includes the president of the United States, and confirms many other suspicions surrounding that event.
