    • On April 18, 2011, by dimlylitstar - The wording of this Bill indicates that it would also include birth control (population control?). This brings up some issues, particularly if President Obama's healthcare bill stands up long enough to be put into practice. Would this mean that everyone on government healthcare could not have coverage for birth control? This could be a really dangerous thing to do, I think. If we think the number of abortions are high now. . . It also brings up the issue of tax deductions on healthcare plans. Would this mean that people with private healthcare plans that cover birth control cannot take advantage of healthcare tax deductions? Because, basically, that's everyone. I don't think there are many plans that don't cover birth control.

    • On May 05, 2011, by AlphaFemale1968 - No abortions, no birth control, no assistance to take care of the children. I have noticed that very one of these anti- abortion/ pro-life bills is sponsored by an elderly white republican male. Wonder if he'd feel the same way if he could get pregnant. Personal opinions, how did these morons get elecetd in the first place?
