Which is the party of responsibility?

Republican Mia Love [ http://www.love4utah.com/about1 ]: African-American woman who by age 30 was married, had 2 kids, and had been elected to Saratoga Springs City Council.

Democrat Sandra Fluke: Feckless dependent who by age 30 is still in college, demanding that government force the school to pay for her birth control

This is what they have become. Sad sad sad.

Parading around in ridicolous costumes, for what? And they want to be taken seriously? Really?

This is a lovely example of conservative judgementalism. You can't be a real women unless you 1.)belong to a man, ie. married, and 2.) reproduce. Also, expecting insurance to cover common medications, like Viagra and birth control is what Ms. Fluke she was fighting for. Name calling and questioning her as a person instead of looking at her argument is what I expect from judgmental conservatives. As for the costumes, I'd take smiling happy kind people in pink frilly costumes over gross fake dead baby pics any day.

Many of these men are extremely insecure. They seem to only feel like real "men" when they are subjugating women. They *think* it is honoring women, when in fact it is belittling them and reducing them to second-class citizens.

I imagine some women like the comfort of being cared for, of not having to actually play an equal role, especially if they have no skills and are uneducated. Hey, I love being coddled and pampered, don't get me wrong, but if I belong to *him*, he belongs to *me*!

LOL!

You do know that babies come out of actual ones, right? It's so refreshing to have people accepting of a woman's choice and genitalia, as opposed to fake dead baby pics that offend and horrify. Does this mean that gross dead babies are your mascot?

Actually, live babies are my mascot, I believe they are worth fighting for It should be live babies that come out of actual ones, not dead ones, and most certainly not dead because someone inserted something into a womans genitalia to kill her child. Live children are much more refreshing than your idea of refreshing.

Seems to me, that you kind of stuck your foot in that one. I can't imagine what would pocess a person to think that wearing a vaginasuit would be a good idea.

No, your mascot is a fetus surrounded by a living woman. Aaannnddd, we're back around to you ignoring the woman around the fetus and ignoring her choice. You don't know why a woman might abort, you don't care, and so it's up to the woman. Nice to know that your mascot can be just as confusing. See, a woman was censored for using the word vagina, and it's interesting to see how many people out there are interested in the regulation of vaginas. Sooo, it's a cute juxtaposition. If you only see a woman's vagina, instead of the woman, if you only see the fetus instead of the person you would force to carry one... you might begin to understand why we oppose your position. See, I get why you are pro-life. I really do. But, it's just not sustainable to shame and force women to carry pregnancies. There's always going to be some women out there who can't/won't. Supporting them, supporting education and providing safe places with actual credible information present, and ofcourse access to bc, reduces the need. So yeah, like the vag suits!

That makes absolutely no sense. Wear a vaginasuit, because you want people to see that you are a real person. It made me think they were really nuts. Epic fail. Another fail is that abortion kills a person, so your argument fails miserably. I am sure you understand why I am pro-life, but I can't understand why you are not.
Access to birth control will not stop abortions. a simple look at history will show that since the pill, abortions have increased just as contraception did. Do you know what the defination of insanity is? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result!

Wrong again! A vagina is a body part, and not a dirty thing that should be whispered in secret when it is being regulated. Are you having problems with your reading comprehension? Perhaps. I know WHY you can't understand my position. That would take compassion. I think this is why I'm drawn to your void.

A vagina is a body part, not the whole person, and it makes absolutly no sense whatsoever to make it appear that is the whole person. It is a private body part, and one not to be shown to the world. There is beauty in only sharing it with one other person,. I would say that is why rape is so violently painful, because it is not to be shared with who ever wants it, but with someone you love.

Compassion has nothing to do with your position, infact your position is totally incompassionate to the human person who dies as a result of your position. You delibrately forget that part of the equation. That is not only incompassionate, but decietful.

Actually, recent history shows that the abortion rate has been decreasing as a percent of population. Our population has been growing, yet the number of abortions is falling. Contraception, when used effectively, prevents unwanted pregnancies. Lower numbers of unwanted pregnancies naturally leads to lower numbers of abortions.

It is really quite straightforward and inarguable.

Exactly. Abortion rates have been steadily decreasing for the last 22 years. They never acknowledge that. Gee, I wonder why?@@

Okay, so it's totally okay to legislate a woman's body, just not show the parts that are being legislated. Gotcha. Also, ever heard of Romania? Lots of unwanted children there. You remove the woman from the equation. If she can't be supported in her choice, then you cannot except happy healthy and productive citizens. Your rape example is disturbing. The violation of any one's body by another through violence, is wrong. Making voluntary sex akin to showing off your vagina, kinda disgusting. Do you have compassion for rape survivors? Every child should be a wanted child. When you force women to carry children they cannot/will not support you are harming society. You are harming her already born children. You are bringing her further and further into poverty, her children into hunger, and let's be honest here, poverty leads to crime in some instances. Again, look up the abortion legislation and vagina policing in Romania. That's what you want to happen to this country and it's people. You can't support the woman, how can you expect her to support her child? Where are the child programs. Is her only recourse to give up her own flesh and blood every time? To have her child ripped from her arms because she is poor? To endure pregnancy and delivery so you can watch some rich white chick who didn't want stretch marks walk off with your child? It's so compassionate of you to care about something until it is born.
