    In response to your statement, “What right do they have to tell us or our insurance whether they should cover pills -condoms or IUD’s.”, we gave the federal government that right when we allowed them to pass the PPACA last year. When we allowed them to say pre-existing conditions couldn’t be denied by insurance providers, and to mandate everyone has insurance or pay a penalty, we gave them the right to say what can and can’t be covered by that insurance. Not to mention the state-run exchanges.

    This bill doesn’t stop you from getting an abortion, and let’s face it, the government wouldn’t pay for you to fly or drive to a different country, so if you can afford a $300+ plane ticket, can’t you also afford an abortion during the first trimester from your own pocket for $300?

    All of you imbeciles who think this is a “woman’s” issue need to Google some abortion pictures. SERIOUSLY!! If you saw the gruesome reality of abortion as MURDER, I would hope that you people would have some more sense about this very immoral and dare I say illegal practice.

    Here, I’ll even help you out a bit: http://www.google.com/images?q=abortion

    You are ignorant. Most of those pictures online are from psychotic anti-choice sites who use pictures of older fetuses to stir up emotions, when around 90% of abortions take place in the first trimester. About 1% of abortions occur after 24 weeks (viability) and these are wanted pregnancies that are terminated due to a risk to the mother’s life or a severe birth defect in which the fetus would not survive long after birth anyway. Regardless, abortions are a personal matter, a private decision, and it is not taken lightly. No woman activately wishes for an unplanned pregnancy just so she can take a fun trip to the abortion clinic and pay $500 out of her own pocket. It’s a really tough decision to make for the majority of women and to think that YOU should have an opinion about it is revolting.

    To believe or even imply that it is not a woman’s issues is absolutely ridiculous! Who carries the child in the uterus? The woman. Who gives birth? The woman does. Whose, life can be at risk if they carry the child to term? The woman’s life. Some women have to endure high-risk pregnancies. Pay attention to the word WOMAN. Women go through these scenarios NOT, MEN IN SUITS WHO THINK THEY CAN DECIDE WHAT WOMEN SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT DO.It has everything to do with a woman.Until,the day comes when a man can carry a child to term and give birth then this will continue to be a woman’s matter.

    Now from a religious stand. God is the only judge and we shall answer to him for our sins right? Thus, if a woman decides to terminate her pregnancy for whatever, reason then She will answer to God if she believes in God. She should not answer to you, to me or to congress. This is one of the most private matters that a woman encounters in HER LIFE.

    Also, Wyoming just revolted against an absurd social agenda and I’m glad to see that some Republicans understand that, the government has no business meddling in private issues between a woman and her physician.

    The government has every right to be involved in which programs receive tax payer funding.

    Too made none of those abortion pictures depict common abortions – otherwise you would find a lot more than the same 10 that float around. Those all depict late trimester, probably back-alley style abortions, if they’re real at all (a lot of them are 100% fake). They’re fabricated by pro-life nutjobs to try and scare you into thinking it’s this horrible thing because they know they have no LOGIC to back themselves up.


  • MilaJosephine 02/23/2011 6:47pm

    CURRENT FEDERAL FUNDING THAT GOES TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOES NOT CURRENTLY INCLUDE ABORTION COVERAGE! They are prohibited by Title X to use federal funding for abortions. They have a separate fund with private donations that cover abortions for women whose insurance will not cover and/or who cannot afford the procedure. Being personally opposed to abortion is fine, not wanting your tax dollars to pay for abortions is fine (even though I would rather them go toward abortion coverage than expanded welfare/WIC programs) but taxpayer money doesn’t fund PP abortions now. Federal funding goes toward preventative screening like PAP smears, HIV testing, birth control for low-income women who can’t afford it. PP PREVENTS more abortions than any anti-choice man or organization ever will.This bill only intends to strip women of basic health care and if passed it will cause more illegal, botched abortions, more children born into poverty and crime, more death and disease. It is purely anti-woman.

    Forgive my ignorance but I just started reading up on this bill myself a little bit ago so I am not intimately familiar with all the details. Do you mean to say from your comment above that PP would not receive any government funding for abortions even if they are due to rape/incest or could cause medical complications for the mother?

  • MilaJosephine 02/23/2011 7:19pm

    Thankfully this bill is just political garbage to gain points with the religious right because it will certainly be vetoed by Obama if it even passes the Senate. But it’s a good reminder that the Republicans’ only agenda is faking moral superiority whilst making sure the poor get poorer and the rich get their tax cuts – while claiming to be about job creation.

  • therebeunicorns 03/01/2011 4:20am

    First off, I am a woman, I am not Christian and I am not a Republican. I am actually a Satanist and somewhat of a Libertarian. I am a teenager, so have no ‘old-time’ values. So you can take your preconceived notions about anti-abortionists and throw them out. But I am very against abortion because life begins at conception…a human life, not a fetus life. There’s no such thing as a seperate species of humans called fetuses! They are people who are not finished growing, babies with souls! If a woman gets pregnant, that’s her problem. Not the babies problem, and she should pay for it herself if she really wants to be so murderous as to get an abortion. No thing as evil as abortion should be funded. I don’t see how in the world a woman ‘suffers’ being pregnant. I think the baby is the one suffering, having to live inside someone so stupid as to get pregnant if she doesn’t want to raise a child.

    therebeunicorns, in referencing the idealized 1950’s, I was referring to the old, white, rich men who benefited the most from the time period – the same ones who are pushing for legislation that restricts womens’ family planning.

    Also, as I’ve previously stated, most women do have to pay for their own abortions and the ones that can’t come up with the money are supplemented through private donations, not taxpayer money. It’s shameful to hear you talk about women who get abortions as being stupid and slutty when the majority of women who have abortions are already mothers. Many are married and monogamous, many are results of those birth control failure statistics. Regardless, it’s not a decision that any woman goes into with joy and it’s also none of your business. Women who get abortions would rather the pregnancy not have occurred in the first place, but there are so many circumstances and gray areas. You just choose to ignore them and unfairly tag all women who have abortions as murderous monsters. It’s not that simple and please realize you probably know someone who has had one and you don’t think any less of them because you have no idea.

    You said “If a woman gets pregnant, that’s her problem.” and “I don’t see how in the world a woman ‘suffers’ being pregnant.”
    I was raped and conceived as a result. How exactly was this my problem? Andd how is forcing me to carry the child not suffering?

    Also, it is not the babies fault if a woman gets raped! It’s the rapists fault. The woman should take revenge against the rapist and kill or jail HIM, not kill the child inisde of her who didn’t do anything but get concieved.

    I would never in a million years carry a rapist’s baby to term. It would be difficult to get through the 24-hour waiting period before termination. That’s my choice, and you have yours.

    Hi! I agree with you on just about everything.
    I was raped. I conceived a child as a result. The law allowed me to choose how I wanted to handle one of the worst moments in my life. I was not forced to abort. I was not forced to carry the child and give birth. I was not forced to raise the child. I was not forced to give it up for adoption.
    I got to make the best choice for me.

    I have no problem with the Hyde. But the macho, male, right wing, religious, republican control freaks want to take that choice away from us. That is what all these pro-life/anti abortion bills are about. Chipping away at abortion until they erradicate it.

  • therebeunicorns 03/01/2011 4:36am

    I apologize for posting so much, last post, but issues on abortion get me worked up. I know what it feels like to suffer after being sexually abused. My uncle abused me when I was eleven for awhile, and even talked about raping me! I suffered, and I didn’t tell anyone, blah blah blah…but you know what? I would still NEVER have gotten an abortion even if he did get me pregnant (not that it was possible at that age)…because I would have been proud to bring a child into this world, his child or not. And I would have loved my child from conception. Don’t get me wrong, I despise my uncle. If he wasn’t in jail right now for doing the same thing to another child, I would gladly have hunted him down and killed him by now. But my child, his DNA or not, would have nothing to do with him. My child would be his or her own soul.

    YOU would never have gotten an abortion if raped. If I were raped, I couldn’t get to the abortion clinic fast enough. The problem isn’t with you being personally opposed to abortion, the problem is you think YOUR opinion about the embryo or fetus in question trumps the rights of the legally recognized person carrying it (the woman) by saying she should be forced to gestate and give birth to a child she does not want. It’s wrong to make decisions for everyone based on YOUR morality. Plus I don’t see how you cannot see the hypocrisy of saying you would kill your uncle and then say it’s so wrong to kill.

    I believe life begins at conception, I am a Christian, I am a mom and yes I am Pro-Choice! The woman’s life and the life of the fetus are combined and this type of legislation opens a bad can of worms. Why do Republicans and Tea Party Members think they can control a woman’s body and yet make the claim against the Health Care bill saying governement is too intrusive? You can’t have it both ways. Republicans want to eliminate almost all education, nutritional and health care programs to women and children and then want to force women to carry out pregnancies even if it is detrimental to the women’s health or the woman is unable to care for the child. They don’t offer any solutions to ensure a quality life for these children they are forcing into the world. Absolutely no forethought here. Woman will be forced back into the dark ages. Shoot this bill down!

    You misrepresent what the republicans want. What we wish to do is to define that abortion is the same as murder, and protect the civil rights to children yet to be born.

    You do not have the right to health care, because otherwise someone would have to provide to you regardless of whether or not they want to. Government should not control that sector of the economy.

    Also, no, they want to replace the education that is basically anti-abstincance, and more about how to do it and how to protect themselves, and replace it with a pro-abstinence message and what negative consequences can occur with sex.

    Also, no, most republicans are okay with abortion to save the mother’s life.

    Define abortion as murder? Then what are the republicans going to do to the women that are so grossly negligent when they are pregnent and it results in the death of their unborn fetus or a misscarriage. Are the republicans going to start prosicuting them as murderers?

    And “you do not have the right to health care”?! The cost of health care is so high because there is not national healthcare. The people who dont have health care still need to be treated and our government made it illegal for hospitals to turn sick and injured people away when they dont have health insurance so the hospitals pass on the bill to those who can pay for it. Give me a break even Cuba has a national health system!

    Abortion to save a womans life- acceptable.
    Abortion in the case of incest or rape-unacceptable.
