The court stopped Obama from ordering Hobby Lobby to pay for abortifacients, in violation of the law Vice President introduced when he was in the Senate and Clinton signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law. So instead of solving this the same way Obama dealt with non-profits and churches, by forcing insurance companies to pay without chargeback, Obama would rather create the impression these women can't get birth control to rev up his base. The real war on women, men, gays and lesbians comes from the left.

I don't agree with the court's decision. Contraception is a necessity for most women at some point in their lives. All forms of it should be covered so each individual woman can figure out which works best for her. It's flat out wrong that an employer can now intrude on these decisions by limiting her choices based on religious beliefs. Religious beliefs that are false, I might add. Science/biology proves those beliefs to be false. There is no pregnancy if there is no implantation. Simple as that.

The employee IS paying for her health coverage. She works and is paid in money and benefits. Next thing you know, the employer will decide where a person can and can't go on vacation. Church retreat -- check it okay. New Orleans during Mardi Gras -- no way!

Right. That's what I thought you said -- a women considering abortion is as evil as a pedophile priest.
<quoted text>
And you stand by your comparison regarding consenting adults having orgasms and pedophiles terrorizing little children and getting off on it.
I disagree with you. Don't be shocked , but whereas you see no difference between the two, I think the only evil here would be the pedophiles.
Killing your child because you don't want them is just as evil as child rape. Yes,you were correct.

Where did I compare "consenting adults having orgasms to pedophiles terroizing little children and getting of on it"? Please don't put words in my mouths STO. You're being dishonest.

What? Go home? I'm drunk? is THAT your reply to me because you feel silly after I pointed out that your dead fetus wasn't birthed (hence the reason why they were issued a birth certificate and I was)?

Don't take your frustrations out on me. BIRTH means you were birthed-think HAPPY BIRTHDAY. If you or your child dies while in utero-whether miscarried or abortion,then they will never be birthed UNLESS it is a partial birth abortion.

I am kinda surprised by this kind of ignorance coming from a woman of your age.

Yes, the woman has a right to abort. You're catching on.
I don't ask anybody to justify sex, at least as long as it's a legal sex act. People aren't perfect and I don't necessarily expect them to use BC correctly every time any more than I expect them to cook a perfect meal every time or drive perfectly every time. If they screw up, they certainly have the right to mitigate the results of their mistakes. Stop pretending sex is a holy, sacred activity; it's a biological function.
Actually, most PC'ers may want to restrict third-trimester abortions to desperate cases b ut they aren't trying to legislate it since RvW already covered it. And no, it isn't only because the woman is dying that a therapeutic abortion is performed. If the pregnancy compromises her mental or physical well-being, the doctor may well decide an abortion is necessary.

I know,that is what I've been saying all along. They are anti-choice and not pro-choice. WHO are they to *want* to restrict that womans choices if they consider themselves pro-choice and claim to support a woman making her own choices involving HER BODY HER CHOICE?.

Hypocrites is what they are. Don't you agree?

I disagree. A woman has to temporarily kill her conscience in order to pay a Dr to kill her child. Why do you think this subject is so emotional? Do you see the reaction that I get on here when mentioning a womans abortion? I get called evil and vile. I have been told that it is an emotional subject for the woman. WHY Peter? Put two and two together.

I don't get offended or justify my actions if someone attacks a choice that I've made or act that I've done UNLESS I feel guilt about it. Guilt means something Peter. Abortion i legal and yet all you proaborts DAILY,YEARLY defend abortion as if you need to. WHY? It certainly isn't because you care what a complete stranger is saying or thinks.It's guilt. A mother ended her developing son or daughters life. Had she not,she'd be holding,raising that child today and perhaps the grandchildren produced from that child.

I'm not advocating changing the law, I advocate morality. Vice President introduced the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act to the Senate in 1990 and he voted for the law President Clinton signed. Back in the '90s, Democrats supported religious freedom.
"Neglect your children"?

Oh no no no. That's a huge no no because the child went through the birth canal. Suddenly THAT womans choice is terminated. Nobody supports her choices. She's a nobody now. If she decides that she doesn't want a child anymore,then she MUST put her child up for adoption for another to raise. Prebirth,she can kill that child and doesn't have to give that child up if she doesn't want him/her. SHE matters then. After she gives birth,nobody cares what SHE thinks anymore. She's EVILLLLLLL if she harms her innocent developing child.

You compare pedophiles to women considering abortion. Mind-boggling. Especially given your post above. There's no way I could extend that kind of compassion and understanding to a child rapist. I think they should be shot.
Killing and raping innocent children are both inexcusable. It's "mind-boggling" to you that I think that its evil? Why must they be compared anyway?. Who are YOU to pick and choose which crime against humanity is better or worse? Is there really a *better or worse* here? I don't think so.

God forgives and he will if the offender is truly sorry and sins no more. He offers it to all of us. Unfortunately,that poor innocent child either dies or is raped and that can NEVER be changed.

What I feel bad about is the young girls misled and deceived by proabort adults and friends. They *do* suffer much post-abortion. I've had many tell me that they wished someone would have helped them and loved them enough to stand by them through their scary,hard time of being young and pregnant. Kinda like Rosez here who gave her child up for adoption and now met him AND her grandchild. Had she been coerced into abortion,her son would be dead and she wouldn't have had grandchildren and so on.....

Nice to see you again as well!!
What does the exact moment of conception mean to what you are talking about? Nobody can tell the exact moment. Perhaps in the future,we can. There are women who find out right away that they are pregnant thanks to technology today depicting signs of early pregnancy where as years ago,we didn't have that luxury. Didn't change ANY facts about the conception and existence of that child. In fact,many women give birth without even knowing that they were pregnant OR in many cases until late in pregnancy due to irregular periods. So?

YOUR opinion.

FYI,women do get pregnant while taking birth control pills or IUD's. Either the woman ends up delivering her baby 9 months later or those contraceptive cause early abortions/miscarriages.

You made the comparison. You're the one who is saying a woman who is considering abortion is just as evil as a child rapist. You wrote it, you own it.

A man who rapes little boys is the worst of the worst. He gets off on terrorizing small children, for kriisake.

A woman who has an abortion is not getting off on terrorizing anyone.

You think there's no difference? Yeah, you think there's no difference.

We don't have religious freedom in this country when an employer's scientifically false beliefs extend into their employee's health coverage.

No, no at all. Many women don't consider a fetus a child to begin with, and don't bond with it in ant way. I know you NEED to believe women are all emotional on the subject. Some get emotional later, when they run into judgment jerks who harass them over it, but it's not the abortion they regret--it's dealing with the bullying.

Many women don't WANT to raise children, much less grandchildren. Hell, women who HAVE children sometimes don't want to raise them.

I am a woman , I feel abortion is murder in so many ways. There are other alternatives such as the morning after pill, birth control, condoms, keeping your legs shut. The potential father gets no say in the future of his child totally up to the mother.I know couples now that were encouraged by a doctor to abort their baby due to the child having spinal issues they didnt even give their daughter a chance to live they terminated it because they didnt want the challanges of a special needs child. I know there is rape and health issues but again there is adoption, the morning after pill.

My son was concieved on september 28th 2007, he was born on june 19th, the day the fertlized egg attached to the uterous the baby has a heart beat. I consider myself somewhat an expert because i did invitrofertiliztion twice. My health insurance did not cover it. So I have endometeriosis and I can not have a child without infertilty treatments so where is my right to choose. Hobby Lobby fought against the morning after pill and won , why is this wrong? Health Care providers are not made to help women like me I have to mortgage a house to have a baby , to terminate one on my healthcare plan is a copay of 100 dollars when the deductible of 500 dollars is met. Would be nice if i was given the same options its a double standard.
