Birth-control debate sinks abortion bill

A debate over the definition of contraceptives has killed a bill that would have made Indiana abortion law among the strictest in the nation. Full Story

I agree - this legislation was a bad idea. Decisions about family planning and reproductive health are highly personal, and should be left up to each couple to decide what is best for them, in consultation with health care providers and/or religious authorities, as they desire. This is not a situation where the state should be interfering in personal choices.

Furthermore, when we live in a country that has freedom of speech, doctors should not be required to say things that they may not believe are true.

Well said, Johnathan, especially when consensus points away from the fanatic position. Adding BC to the anti-woman bill almost guaranteed it would sink. I'm glad it did, if for no other reason than that it shows the extremists for what they are. They're really not very savvy.

Fichter is right: the definition of "contraceptive" by Simpson is bogus voodoo science, not the revealed truth of science that life begins at the moment of fertilization/conception.

Abortoholics at Klan Parenthood and the extreme left can be happy women in Indiana will not get good, truthful information on fetal pain in abortion and the mechanisms of action of steroidal abortifacients, such as the Pill, Plan B, etc.

This is a truth-in-advertising bill that was defeated by those who wish to keep women in the dark. They won today but will lose ultimately.

When is Sen. Miller going to learn to stay out of other people's bedrooms? How adults deal with the consequences of their sexual behavior is their business, not yours, Sen Miller.
