    What comes after abortion is illegal? Doctors will have to stop performing life-saving operations because they artificially extend life and fly in the face of God’s will.

    You’d think that anyone who actually wanted fewer abortions would want people to use birth control unless they specifically wanted a pregnancy.
    -
    Yet Republicans/Fox “news” viewers don’t want people to have access to birth control at all.

    No, there is no reason for the government or an insurance company to cover a prescription that costs $4 at Target or Wal-Mart.

    And why should a government be buying your condoms.

    You want birth control, that is fine – but pay for it yourself.

    Abortion is not birth control – is correcting the events that come from the lack of your use of birth control.

    Do you know how much a prescription for “the pill” actually costs? All those women are asking for is to have it covered in their insurance (which they will be paying for). Besides, if men can get prescriptions for Viagra, then women should be able to get their birth control covered.

    DaSharkie gets it,… unfortunately LumFan doesn’t.

    Jail them for practicing medicine without a license.

    “Yet Republicans/Fox “news” viewers don’t want people to have access to birth control at all.”

    And the only logical conclusion you can draw from that discrepancy is that what the GOP wants is barefoot, pregnant women.

    *“*You want birth control, that is fine – but pay for it yourself.

    At inflated BigPharma/medical industry rates. You do know what it costs to see a doctor OOP, don’t you? Hint: It isn’t twenty bucks.

    *“*Abortion is not birth control – is correcting the events that come from the lack of your use of birth control.

    If that’s your position, when are you going to start paying for your erectile function medication and testosterone prescriptions? If insurers can support male reeproductive physiology, they should be providing women with birth control. It’s all reproductive medicine, and if male issues can be covered, then they’d better cover women’s issues – including birth control and abortion.

    At present, women in this country have chattel status.

    Apparently that works for you. It doesn’t work for me, nor for most of the people I know.

    Men seem to believe that unless they force conception, women won’t bear their children. I wonder why ..?

    If the USA could run a socialized medicine program like the rest of the G8 that cost 10.5% of GDP it would not have a deficit. It would also probably not have the lowest average life expectancy in the OECD and an infant mortality rate about the same as Slovenia’s.

    Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman: Stand Your Ground.
    .
    If a person came up to you in Florida and threatened to do you bodily harm, you have the right to inflict fatal gunshot wounds on said person. If I understand Stand your Ground, correctly.
    .
    If a person came into your house and demanded all of your money and valuables, you have the right to kill that person in many states. Am I right?
    .
    So if you are faced with a pregnancy of a severely handicapped infant, one that will cost you all that you have and all that you hope to get just to keep this child alive, why don’t you have the right to “Stand Your Ground” against that child?
    .
    We’re willing to let people kill other people over money (even though there are other remedies and courses of action available) But not fetuses.
    .
    How do you justify that disparity?

    Count me amongst those.
    .
    And if DaSharkie has a female significant other, you can be sure that if she heard him speak like this she’d grasp him by the stiff of his ear and would smack him repeatedly about the head and neck.
    .
    Other than that, thank you for being as nice to DaSharkie as you have been. He’s just parroting the Rush Limbaugh line.

    I think it is unfair to make it a party issue. Making abortion clinics meet health requirements is safety for women. A baby feels extreme pain at 20 weeks so don’t hurt the baby. In my head that makes sense.
