Pray for My Sisters

I knew this was coming. We all did. In 2001, once George W. Bush became president, my girlfriends and I knew...this was the end of Roe v Wade.

Oh sure, it's still the law of the land, but is it? Is it really? If abortion exists, but no one is there to provide it, is it still viable? Look at these statistics:

"87% of counties in the United States and 31% of metropolitan areas have no abortion services. Roe or not, an abortion maybe not be a choice for some women. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says that “the availability of abortion services is in jeopardy.”

I have mentioned the fact that Cape Cod no longer offers abortion services to women. Since I live here, and strongly believe in a woman's right to control her own destiny, this chills me to the bone.

Given the fact that abortion is legal and perfectly condoned by the Constitution, it makes me wonder who these people are who advocate for the repeal of Roe v Wade. Are these people against the Constitution? Are they against the laws of America? Are they against individual freedom? Because with all their talk of freedom, if they have their way, a woman will be forced to carry a pregnancy to term: By Order of the State!

Think about that. And then think about your own daughter or wife. Think about rape and incest and deadly pregnancies. "Oh" you say--"that won't be included." But I have one question for you...where will she be able to find a doctor to perform the abortion? If they are all terrorized out of existence, what will her choices be?

Freedom? Constitution? I don't think so. I think it's back to the Dark Ages when Church dogma reigned Supreme. Because make no mistake about it, it is the Christian Right that is behind this push for repeal. They have been at if for a very long time. Since 1973, when Roe was made the law of the land, there has been an organized assault. Don't believe me?

"Needless to say, Christian Right leaders were very pleased when Bush nominated John Roberts to the Supreme Court. “It is time to make good on those campaign promises, Mr. President,” said Troy Newman, president of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue. “You have been given a mandate to end abortion in our nation by the American people who cast their votes for you.”

I think it's no love of the Constitution at all.

I think it's a huge step backwards for the women of this country. Women who had to fight long and hard for the right to control their own destiny.

Margaret Sanger, an early advocate for reproductive rights, wrote a book about her experiences working with poor women on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. One fact that always stuck in my head is the crushing poverty of these women. Due to circumstances beyond their control, they had baby after baby after baby. With very little income, and very rough living conditions, it was hard hard going for all involved. Sanger once asked one of the mother's if her doctor couldn't do something to stop her from getting pregnant. The doctor's reply? "Tell your husband to sleep on the roof."

This was the extent of birth control back in the 1800's, and I think the Christian Right would like that just fine for 2010. Even the day-after pill is being phased out of use. And why? The doctor orders it, the law protects it, but who is stopping it?

Separation of Church and State is under attack as well.

Well, you might say, doctors can still perform abortions, so what's the problem?

Here's the problem:

"Operation Rescue’s, Randall Terry zealously attempts to prevent med students from entering this field and proudly told the Post, “We want them tormented. If they become a child killer, we will make their lives miserable. It will be so costly for them socially and emotionally,” he continued. “What young person is going to want that lifestyle?” Not only are they trying to terrorize women from obtaining an abortion, they are also seeking to frighten away future doctors from practicing."

Need I say more? Targeting doctors, giving their names and adresses out on the internet, advertising what schools their kids attend, and telling them to go after them. This is terrorism, plain and simple, and it has been ongoing in America with nary a peep since 1973.

And I'm sure you all recall Bill O'Reilly's constant rants about George Tiller. Tiller the Baby Killer,Tiller the Baby Killer, over and over on his show. No surprise that Tiller was killed by an anti-abortion fanatic. Was O'Reilly yelling fire in a crowded theatre? You bet!

Now we have a Healthcare Bill passed by Congress with this mandate: No federal funding for abortions allowed for American women--American citizens who pay federal taxes will continue to be denied a legal medical procedure. For shame. I get that the Lifers had to be placated and the Bill had to pass, but it makes me angry that women's rights are thrown under the bus. Ah well, Ce La Vie.

One last point: There is a direct correlation between the tactics used by Operation Rescue and the Republican/Tea-Bagger "Kill the Bill" mantra. All kinds of things are said about this bill that don't ring true...and yet, you find yourself questioning....asking... "wait a minute, can that be true?" It's not.

Same tactic. Same people. Same results.

"For thirty-five years, the anti-abortion crusade has relentlessly pursued an activist strategy centered on promoting the false impression that women choose abortion for so-called frivolous reasons, or as a substitute for birth control, while irresponsibly delaying their abortions until the third trimester for the sake of convenience."

Yes, America; women have abortions for convenience. It's not a heart-breaking, agonizing decision. They make it as easy as deciding what clothes to wear that day.

Really?

Shame on you. For lying. For demonizing women. For not giving women credit. For not allowing people to hear the truth.

And shame on you too for using the same tactics...for lying about and distorting the truth about this Healthcare Bill.

Shame on you--and don't you ever tell me you value Freedom or the Constitution. Those are not ideals that are up for grabs to the lowest common denominator.

Either they apply to everyone, or they apply to none at all.

War on Women

Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, 2013:

"For the new Congress, that means bringing together a bipartisan pro-life majority and getting to work," Boehner said. "In accordance with the will of the people, we will again work to pass the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, formally codifying the Hyde Amendment."

Boehner said he will make it a national priority to "help make abortion a relic of the past."

"Let that be one of our most fundamental goals this year," he said.

Punishment, No Crime

"I remember when I was a child sort of having the impression that pregnancy was the punishment that women experienced for having sex. That there was this, all of this, there was not only judgment but bloody, and terrible, and terrifying punishments, if you had sex and then if you wanted to terminate the pregnancy resulting from sex. It was a ridiculous means of controlling women through terror. And that fundamentally is what Roe v. Wade was intended to change. And it fundamentally did change."

"In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that states laws which made it illegal for a woman to have an abortion up to three months of pregnancy were unconstitutional, and that the decision on whether a woman should have an abortion up to three months of pregnancy should be left to the woman and her doctor to decide."

I suggest we take cons approach, and arrest any federal employee who dis-regards this decision. 1st to go would be Gov Brownback.

In malpractice case, Catholic hospital argues fetuses aren’t people

"Catholic organizations have for decades fought to change federal and state laws that fail to protect “unborn persons,” and Catholic Health’s lawyers in this case had the chance to set precedent bolstering anti-abortion legal arguments. Instead, they are arguing state law protects doctors from liability concerning unborn fetuses on grounds that those fetuses are not persons with legal rights. "

"Oh, freedom's just another word for Only when it comes to me..."

"In 1990, in the Boston area, Operation Rescue and other groups were regularly blockading the clinics, and many of us went every Saturday morning for months to help women and staff get in. As a result, we knew many of the 'antis' by face. One morning, a woman who had been a regular 'sidewalk counselor' went into the clinic with a young woman who looked like she was 16-17, and obviously her daughter. When the mother came out about an hour later, I had to go up and ask her if her daughter's situation had caused her to change her mind. 'I don't expect you to understand my daughter's situation!' she angrily replied. The following Saturday, she was back, pleading with women entering the clinic not to 'murder their babies.'"

Official Republican platform:

“Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.”

*****

Official Democratic platform:

"The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right. Abortion is an intensely personal decision between a woman, her family, her doctor, and her clergy; there is no place for politicians or government to get in the way. We also recognize that health care and education help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and thereby also reduce the need for abortions. We strongly and unequivocally support a woman's decision to have a child by providing affordable health care and ensuring the availability of and access to programs that help women during pregnancy and after the birth of a child, including caring adoption programs.

Dirty Wolves in sheep's clothing:

"Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers, or TRAP — aren’t really about ensuring women’s safety at all. As Mississippi’s Republican governor once admitted behind closed doors at an anti-choice event, TRAP laws are about indirectly restricting women’s access to abortion by shutting down health clinics.

In Pennsylvania specifically, one Planned Parenthood affiliate was forced to spend nearly a half a million dollars to get two of its clinics into compliance with the new regulations. That involved unnecessary updates like installing hands-free sinks, replacing the floors, and updating the air-conditioning system. The affiliate’s CEO, Dayle Steinberg, explained to NPR that the state’s stricter requirements didn’t actually do anything to improve the care provided to the women at her clinics, where the complication rate is already less than one-tenth of 1 percent. “They were thinly disguised as improving patient safety, when really it was about increasing the cost for abortion providers — hoping that some of them wouldn’t be able to afford it,” Steinberg said.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Women’s health advocates consider TRAP measures to be some of the most dangerous threats to women’s access to safe abortion services across the country. In North Dakota, where anti-choice Republicans are advancing the most stringently anti-abortion legislation in the nation, one doctor warned lawmakers that the new TRAP law will force women into dangerous, “backroom” abortion procedures. Retired pediatrician Ted Kleiman worked at a hospital before Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973, and he watched women die from botched abortions. “The thought of returning to those days is really beyond imagination,” Kleiman told his state lawmakers, urging them not to shut down the only abortion clinic left in North Dakota.

Women’s health advocates, particularly those who work at health clinics, are extremely concerned about ensuring that women receive the highest standards of reproductive care. Over-regulating the clinics like Planned Parenthood’s, where the vast majority of patients are already receiving incredibly safe care, will actually limit women’s options instead of keeping them safe. "

*********

No one has yet been able to tell me why a stranger's abortion is any of their business.

But, once women start dying again by back-alley ones: it will be.

I will personally see to it that they are charged w murder...of the woman.

Alan Simpson on abortion:“it’s a deeply intimate and personal thing,” “Men legislators shouldn’t even vote on it.”

“You’re a Republican, you believe in get-out-of-your-life and the precious right to privacy, the right to be left alone,” Simpson stated. “Well then, pal, I don’t care what you do. You can go worship the Great Eel at night, I don’t give a rat’s… But don’t mess with me and don’t then go take a position I have and wrap religion around it.”

"America is home to a very active pro-life movement founded on the concept that all life is precious, and is synonymous with the concepts of right-to-life and culture-of-life the religious right and Republicans spend undue time on attempting to control women and protect single-celled organisms. However, at the end of gestation, the same movement spends unwarranted amounts of time and energy abandoning infants and children to poverty, hunger, and ill-health in a never-ending crusade to cut programs that ensure babies and children are mired in poverty and lack basic necessities of life making a mockery of their pro-life moniker."

Hmmmm, I've been reading up on abortion. Vewwwy interesting. Wasn't illegal until 1830. And by gum geuss why?

Gvt and eugenicists said "Too many immigrant babies being born here in Amurrica: We gots to stop you white women from aborting fetuses!!!"

Ahaha...all this time they try to pin Sanger as the racist and Eugenicist...it was the Blue-Bloods!

Didn't stop abortion tho...rich women could always get it done. Only ones they prevented were poor women....imagine that.

As Sanger found out: poor women w many mouths to feed and no money, often asked the Dr what they could do to prevent more pregnancies...."Tell your husband to sleep on the roof."

It's all a matter of controlling and suppressing women. Always was, always will be.

Because the rich ones will do what they want regardless...with NO backlash from the so-called pro-lifers.

It's the poor and hopeless they seek to control and make miserable.

Why?

So they can have a powerless group to force their ideology on....as no one in their right mind, who can afford otherwise, will ever let anyone tell them what they can and cannot do w their own bodies!

And all these people who decry abortion: GW had 2 girlfriends who had the procedure......no one called him a baby-killer.

In fact: they lapped him up!

No one called Delay on his practice of forced abortions in the factory he gave our money to, while giving lip-service to pro-lifers here in USA for the votes.

Nor do they question his mentoree, Mike Pence, who also caters to the pro-life crowd for votes.

Votes and suppression, keeping poor women oppressed.

Because, as Princess Di used to say: "If men had the babies, abortion would be legal, safe and freely available."

And women of means will always have access to the medical procedure, when ever the need arises.

In El Salvador, Yet Another Woman’s Life Subordinated to Non-Viable Fetus

"A 22-year-old Salvadoran from a poor, rural community, suffers from chronic and severe medical conditions. She is the mother of an infant. And she is roughly 18 weeks pregnant with an anencephalic fetus, a fetus without a brain. Doctors at the Maternity Hospital determined that the pregnancy is life-threatening, and Beatriz requested that Salvadoran medical personnel perform an abortion, but a 1998 law in El Salvador prohibits all abortions, without exception.Legal reforms in 1998 in El Salvador, promulgated by conservative religious forces, outlawed abortion without exception. Previously it was permitted if the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest, the mother’s life was in danger, or the fetus was not viable. In addition, a constitutional amendment was added declaring that life begins at conception, which means that prosecutors can charge women who seek abortions with aggravated homicide, punishable by 30 to 50 years in prison, rather than the lesser crime of abortion, which carries a term of two to eight years.

Threats of prosecution and prison terms are not to be taken lightly under the 1998 law. The Agrupación has mounted legal and educational campaigns to secure the release of six women from prison. Since no comprehensive data exist in the country, the Agrupación is conducting its own research, which reveals that currently at least 24 women are serving prison terms of up to 40 years for abortion or aggravated homicide related to abortion charges."

Libertarian? On what planet?

“Your rights, especially your right to privacy, are under assault,” Rand Paul said at UC Berkeley.

And for everyone in the audience with a cellphone, the NSA’s near limitless power to capture and keep data with minuscule oversight from a court made up entirely of judges appointed by John Roberts should provoke anxiety.

But for young women, the assault on their right to privacy isn’t theoretical. It’s happening now. Nearly 90 percent of counties in the United States have no abortion provider. More restrictions on the right to choose have been passed in the last three years than in the decade before.

Paul doesn’t just support the right of a woman’s employer to deny her birth control coverage, he literally wants to overturn Roe v. Wade, which would allow states to immediately criminalize not just abortion, but likely some methods of birth control as well.

All the young dudes may like Paul’s lawsuit against the NSA — being led by anti-abortion extremist Ken Cuccinelli.

But a brief conversation with the females in their life may reveal that Rand Paul’s version of freedom would take the government out of their cellphones and put it in women’s wombs."

“Fiscal conservatives might applaud Rand Paul when he talks about getting Afghan president Hamid Karzai off of welfare, but they’ll scream if he comes within five miles of their Social Security checks,” Politico Magazine‘s Kevin D.

"A federal judge permanently struck down North Dakota’s six-week abortion ban on Wednesday. The so-called “fetal heartbeat” measure, which used to represent the harshest ban in the nation, had already been temporarily blocked from taking effect while the legal challenge against it proceeded.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland ruled that the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge,” pointing out that Roe v. Wade guarantees the right to abortion up until the point of viability."

Here you go, you vicious, cruel woman-haters:

Pregnant, and No Civil Rights

By LYNN M. PALTROW and JEANNE FLAVINNOV. 7, 2014

"WITH the success of Republicans in the midterm elections and the passage of Tennessee’s anti-abortion amendment, we can expect ongoing efforts to ban abortion and advance the “personhood” rights of fertilized eggs, embryos and fetuses.

But it is not just those who support abortion rights who have reason to worry. Anti-abortion measures pose a risk to all pregnant women, including those who want to be pregnant.

Such laws are increasingly being used as the basis for arresting women who have no intention of ending a pregnancy and for preventing women from making their own decisions about how they will give birth.

How does this play out? Based on the belief that he had an obligation to give a fetus a chance for life, a judge in Washington, D.C., ordered a critically ill 27-year-old woman who was 26 weeks pregnant to undergo a cesarean section, which he understood might kill her. Neither the woman nor her baby survived.

In Iowa, a pregnant woman who fell down a flight of stairs was reported to the police after seeking help at a hospital. She was arrested for “attempted fetal homicide.”

In Utah, a woman gave birth to twins; one was stillborn. Health care providers believed that the stillbirth was the result of the woman’s decision to delay having a cesarean. She was arrested on charges of fetal homicide."

Guttmacher Institute: "States Enacted 231 Abortion Restrictions During Last Four Years. According to a January 5 report from the Guttmacher Institute, 231 abortion restrictions were enacted in the United States between 2011 and the end of 2014. In the year 2014 alone, state legislators introduced 335 anti-choice provisions and passed 26 new restrictions on abortion, leaving more than half of U.S. women of reproductive age living "in a state that is either hostile or extremely hostile to abortion rights." Guttmacher wrote that major legislative actions in 2014 included attempts at abortion bans and banning the use of telemedicine in the procedure, mandated counseling and waiting periods before care, and the targeted regulation of abortion providers (TRAP) through clinic regulation and admitting privileges. The report went on to explain that GOP midterm election results "provide good reasons to be concerned" as legislators in favor of harsh abortion restrictions begin their legislative sessions

Republican legislators, who overwhelmingly oppose abortion rights, solidified their dominance in the states. Republicans will now control both legislative chambers in 30 states, three more than in 2014; in 23 of those states, the governor will also be Republican. "

Perhaps this is what's going on here:

"Controlling speech — even specific words — goes a long way towards managing political discourse. Public opinion follows. It’s a delicate operation but the payoff is huge. This soft control allows dominant voices to establish a ruling narrative that might not otherwise emerge"

--"The website’s executive director had a financial motivation to block these commenters. One generous funder had told him, “I gave you five thousand dollars last year, but I’m not doing it again.”--

"Managing all political speech remains a top priority."

******

I have found it quite amasing to be censored and ostrasised for speaking my mind here...people were told not to interact with me!God only knows what they were saying.....kicked off forums:for life!Which means--I can't simply make other account to interact,like others here do.Discrimination.....YOU BET

And--I see the same treatment of other who don't "tow the line"

Maybe some day America will live up to it's stated ideal of freedom of speech... but we have a long way to go.

In America--you are not allowed to veer from the path determined by the powers-that-be

and everyone knows it.

*****

My particular Faux-pas:

"As for discussing these hot topics, people should be free to be ‘pro-Jewish’ (or pro-Zionist) and those who oppose them should be permitted to take the position of being ‘anti-Jewish’, ‘anti-Zionist’ or ‘anti-Israel’, without stigma.

Do you approve of Israeli conduct and behavior? I don’t. But reform is possible. In the meantime, everyone should be free to discuss these issues and advocate their position on a level playing field.

Loaded and prejudicial terms like ‘anti-Semite’ then, should be retired altogether, just as words like ‘n*gger’ and ‘k*ke’ have been driven out of respectable conversation."

Afraid to speak...no. Punished for it:yes.

Character slandered:yes

They have won.

"Before 2010, no states banned abortions outright at any stage of pregnancy. Nebraska started the trend with a 20-week abortion ban in April 2010. In 2011, Alabama, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, and Oklahoma followed suit, and in 2012, Arizona, Georgia, and Louisiana passed curbs of their own. Last week, Arkansas became the first state to approve an abortion ban this year.

Abortion-rights activists are worried about a ban under consideration in North Dakota, plus a continuing wave of regulations on abortion clinics that, activists say, have forced clinics to close by making it impossible for them to operate.

During the last two elections—big years in national politics, marked by a wave of Tea-Party House and Senate gains in 2010, and by President Obama's reelection over Mitt Romney in 2012—Republicans have taken over more state legislatures and governors' mansions across the country, turning some red states redder and flipping some purple states into their column."

"America is quite hostile toward its working mothers. Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, executive director of momsrising.org, says part of the problem is that most policymakers can’t relate to the issues moms face. More than 80 percent of the 114th Congress is male, a figure Rowe-Finkbeiner says explains why lawmakers don’t see childcare access as an urgent issue.

“Often, childcare has been thought of as a woman’s individual problem,” she told AlterNet. “If one person can’t make it happen, then it’s her fault. We have a structural issue with childcare we have to solve together and not an epidemic of personal failing.”

Can we get out of your desire to run things by your decree, and into the real world???

"Once a baby is born, someone must care for it. Some women get abortions because they cannot adequately do this themselves. (If a mother is addicted to drugs or an alcoholic — and this is a whole other issue — she may not even be able to properly care for a fetus, never mind a baby.) Approximately one million abortions occur in the US each year. Already nearly 400,000 children are living in the US’s notoriously fraught foster care system — over a quarter of these children are eligible for adoption but have not been adopted.

Some women will raise their children themselves. Of the women who have abortions, 85 percent are unmarried, so an abortion ban is bound to create a plethora of single mothers, causing a far greater burden on women than men. Women who raise children may take a career hit, losing wages and opportunities for advancement while working part time jobs or taking time off to care for children. There is no such career hit for men.

Even without a career hit, the financial burden of raising a child is nothing to sneeze at (more than $245,000 for a middle-income family in the US), and over 40 percent of abortions are performed on women living below the poverty line. Who will support these women financially?"

Who? Pro-Lifers? Bwahahahaha

Solution:

"Easy access to birth control is probably the best path to reducing unwanted pregnancies, but it currently consumes significant time, energy, and money — though it’s hard to imagine that if men experienced the same obstacles to having safe sex, and the same potential consequences if they didn’t, that the whole system wouldn’t be run differently. (Gloria Steinem once remarked that if men menstruated, sanitary supplies would be “federally funded and free.”)

--Ermmmm, Viagra is, isn't it??

Face it--you keep saying it's not a war on women.....but just look at the facts.

Viagra....part of insurance plan, cause you know: men gotta have it!

Birth control.....no way should I pay because a woman wants to be a sl*t. Right?!

And you pro-life women.....be honest: what is your opinion of women who have had an abortion?

Defers class, race, social-standing.......

Women are always at the bottom of the heap.

You want abortion-free society? Vasectomize all boys. They can reverse it later when you deem it proper.

But that'll never happen in a million years.......why?

Cause removing a fetus is murder.

War is justified.

Guns are a sacred right.

Women are being imprisoned for losing their fetuses.

“States are saying that they know what is best for fertilized eggs, and because they know best they can tell a pregnant women that she’s a criminal and that she must do whatever her doctor – or a social worker, or law enforcement officer, or lawyer appointed to represent her fetus – says.”

Get that? fetuses have lawyers now. Something in YOUR OWN BODY has a lawyer to use against you!

Personhood....anytime after conception, that fetus has rights of full human being OVER AND ABOVE the person whose body is housing it!

Take painkillers for a bad back, and you're 1 hour pregnant? Guilty of crime.

Don't know that you're pregnant, ands have a glass of wine.....Guilty of facilitating fetal alcohol syndrome.

Of course, you can avoid prison if you have the cash....

In America 2015: women are forced to carry pregnancies to term whether they want to or not.

As a consequence, many are having their children taken away from them because they don't have the financial wherewithal to support them.

They are being thrown in prison for losing their pregnancies....

And a fetus in HER womb is considered sacred and valuable, while she is just a brood-mare and a sl*t.

We don't need lectures on other countries and their religions....we have enough problems with our own right here.

Anway, people who like to fill our public waves w terror talk should have a look at Operation Rescue....if you care about terrorism. Homegrown doesnt make it any less frightening or vicious.

If I ever have time to do this, i'm writing a hub: ALEC and the NRA: Killing for Profit

Sons of b**ches for real. REAL, not some funny pretend-land where guns are good and only good people use them. Hey--a good person turns bad on liquor. Guns don't care. A good person turns bad on anger, jealousy, riled up Stochastic terrorism, practiced by the Right Wing media factory.

They ALEC and NRA are charlatans...merchants of death FOR REAL

"The retail sale of machine guns has been barred by federal law since the gangster era but, as uncovered by the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD), one year ago at ALEC's "policy summit" in Arizona, the NRA obtained unanimous support from the corporate and lawmaker members of ALEC's Task Force for "amending" ALEC's "Consistency in Firearms Regulation Act" to expressly bar cities from banning "machine guns." Other provisions of that bill prevent cities from banning armor-piercing bullets and from banning efforts to alter guns to make them more deadly if the state does not do so. It also bars cities from suing gun manufacturers for gun deaths based on the theory of liability used by governments to sue tobacco manufacturers for smoking deaths."

They have long list of this crap...and if not for money than why?

2000--Koch Industries was chair of board ALEC....

Smith and Wesson agreed to put safety measures on their guns.....ALEC fought to prevent them getting police contracts to manufacture police dpt guns!

Just what is this about?

Safety measures nixed.....they want guns everywhere--stores, bars, schools....what is this about if not profit?? Death merchants. PERIOD.

see for yourself Ties between ALEC and NRA:

It's WAY past time we keep pretending guns are not the problem. Guns ARE the problem.

They are a huge profit-making industry..why you think they always have to sell war? Sell fear?

If people think they have right to them...then they need to be as regulated as cars, if not more.

And I'm talking the manufacturers!!!!!

And stop with the crap "criminals will just blah blah blah"

We can at least make it harder for them can't we?

So concerned about rights slipping away, but support the party that does this:

"But the inclusion of CISA in the omnibus package may make it even more likely to be signed into law in its current form. Any “nay” vote in the house—or President Obama’s veto—would also threaten the entire budget of the federal government.

“They’re kind of pulling a Patriot Act,” says OTI’s Greene. “They’ve got this bill that’s kicked around for years and had been too controversial to pass, so they’ve seen an opportunity to push it through without debate. And they’re taking that opportunity.”

Stealth taking away of rights. Can't do it outright....have to "slip it in". Now business can just give all your internet info to NSA/FBI/Law Enforcement. And you claim to be worried about your grandkids....the internet generation.

231 new laws to prevent women accessing their Constitutional right to an abortion.

Not to mention the 42 years of terror, cause Radicals can't respect the Law. Think their ideology has to rule all people. And actually think they have the right to kill for it.

Citizens United.....money is speech ergo those with most money get to talk.

Article in Rolling Stone...."this is Sheldon Adelson's election to choose"

ie, a Casino-owning Israeli-Firster who wants to bomb Iran will tell people in my gubmint what to do.

You gun-babies are all ok with these things, so you know what?

You don't like gun regs???

Take a number!~

"If one right can be regulated, what about all the rest?'

Well exactly! Since womens reproductive rights have been regulated out of existance, gun nuts should have no problem with gun regs!

Easy!

Franklin Graham is stupid, as well as the devil.

Hyde amendment, 1976. Forbids tax dollars going to abortion.

Even tho women pay taxes

Even tho taxes pay for war, which kills people

Taxes pay for MIC profits, Haliburton profiis, GE profits, Xe profits, on and on and on

Tax dollars pick up the tab for the carnage of gun violence

Tax dollars even pay for Viagra.....

But not abortion, cause thats for women, and we cant have that in the Phallus Worshipping age.

Discrimination. At its worse.

SORRY, saying viperish things about the president, calling people morons, and liking the smell of a smoking gun is not Christ-like.

"You will know them by their works"

Busted. You are an agent of Zionism, supporting the brutal treatment of children, and against world peace.

Why you are allowed, along with your fiendish friend, is proof of HP's bias.

IMO

Man who made phony Planned Parenthood video found to be liar by judge. In ruling, judge also stated that due to all the attacks on Planned Parenthood clinics, lying creep is promoting terrorism.

Computer is so damaged, cannot copy and paste...but anyone can google it.

*****

All of you attacked me when I said Palin and Beck were promoting terror....

Well. it was true then, and it's true now.

These Right Wing zealots are Gladio. They are subversives, and they WANT terror and chaos.

Whether they do it for belief, or for money, the result is the same.

Stop humoring them: they need to be arrested.

But we have a 1st amdnd.....so we need to at least fight them just as hard!

Operation Rescue is a domestic terror org.

Oath Keepers are a fraud.

Donald Trump promotes violence.

Fox News, Talk radio, Repub candidates....are u kidding me? Who dug these cretins out of the swamp????

"Love thy neighbor as thyself"......anyone see this? Just the opposite, isn't it? COME ON

We have lost our way. Obama has tried to get it back.....too much mindkontrol going on.

I refuse to give up to the Goonies. Love is the answer. Always has been.

They killed the one who sung that, didn't they....of course they did.

Prez Kennedy offered coffee and donuts to those protesting him....BANG BANG

Love is the answer, and you know that, for sure

and F the rest of yuz. Your Master awaits.......

While you cry crocodile tears over "Tyrant Obama wants my guns", Tyrant Republicans actually and in reality are trying to own my uterus!

"the 2010 elections, which gave Republicans control of the House of Representatives and many legislatures across the country, emboldening abortion opponents. According to a new Guttmacher Institute analysis, states enacted 288 new abortion restrictions from 2011 through 2015 - nearly as many as were passed in the previous 15 years. "

......

Now they are going after birth control....

"In Hobby Lobby, the issue was whether the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act gave for-profit companies whose owners objected to birth control on religious grounds the right to deny contraception benefits to their employees; by a 5–4 vote, the court ruled yes."

****

2016 will see 7 more cases like this.

Can I ASK...what is an owner doing in MY PRIVATE LIFE in the first place?

You faux freedom fighters are full of it.

You want freedom to have 30 shot clips, vest-piercing bullets, ak 47s....

But don't think a woman has the right to birth control!

Please tell me o religious ones.....where are Guns mentioned in the Bible?

Does the commandment thou shalt not kill have the addendum: "Unless it's by a gun, you KNOW Jesus LUVS them"

FREEDOM is FREEDOM. One for all and all for one.

Unless you plan on making into law that women are second class citizens.....AGAIN. Property of men.

That is my guess.

Humph. If you dontt like constitution Leave, change by popular vote, or leave?

I heartily agree!

1973 Roe v Wade. Legal medical procedure protected by the constitition.

Those who dont like it havent left, or changed it by popular vote, they have made laws that skirt around the constitution, creating a Daddy-state, in which men in dresses force me to do as they say.

Practice what you preach.....BYE

Terrorist who doctored video to demonize planned parenthood has been indicted.

They should charge the mf w accessory to murder, since Dear screamed "no more baby parts"

Hes facing jail time along w a fellow terrorist.

Your 43 yr anti abortion reign of terror is ending.

You dont want women to have freedom, move to Saudi Arabia.

People act like the left/right divide isnt "real". Like, some bigwigs using it to "divide and conquer". I have news for you, its real. There are real consequences to real people by real policies that are enacted.

"Were basically the same"

No, were not. Really, we couldnt BE more different.

I do not want to live in this place with a Republican 4 fecta again. Horror redeux.

There are moral differences too big to bridge. And it has NOTHING to do with God!

This, if anything we need to be real about!

Guy completely dismisses Hillary's whole career as nothing.

Wants to see the 2 men duke it out for prez.

One inherited wealth and a business, the other is a senator..

Stellar records, compared to Hillary?

I don't think so.

The same gd crap as always.

Thanks for telling me what I can and cannot do with my life....moderately, of course.

Time to snip the boys. End abortion for good. That is an order. By the state. Or is it church? Or is there a difference?

El Salvador banned abortion in 1998. I just read story of young 17 yrs old girl who was raped. Despite that, she wanted to carry to term . But, she miscarried instead.... She was sentenced to 30 yrs in prison for murder.

This is what is coming here to America, in spite of the fact we have Roe v Wade as law.

States are ignoring the constitution and writing laws around it.

I strongly suggest any woman living under Republican run state get out if there now.

You must find refuge for your freedom in a Blue state, which will protect your rights.

These radical religionists who have power are a danger to us all, but particularly women.

It is no joke, it is frightening.

If Alabama votes this personhood in, women will be prosecuted for murder for having an abortion.

Women, we must now stick together for our safety and rights.

Either that, or leave Republican states immediately. Take your daughters out of there.

God, I can't believe this terror is taking over again.

Brought to you btw, by mr liberty ron paul.

That demon.

As you can see, there are people who will not vote for Hillary, the "proud dem", but will allow Republicans to take the presidency, thereby having house, senate, prez and supreme court.

Just because they hate Hillary.

When your son's are sent to wipe out Iran, and your daughters jailed for having a miscarriage, I will blame you. At least we know where the republicans stand.

You have sold us out fur a phony spoiler.

My dad always was angry at me for voting Nader, but at least I was Indie at the time, and so was he.

Sanders and his acolytes are using democrats to destroy democrats.

That is heinous beyond belief.

There will be no coming together, ever.

You are Tea Party, Left.
