Don't tell these right-wing nuts but women make up more than half of population and the overwhelming majority of them want their rights protected for them to decide issues regarding their reproductive systems.

It is actually much cheaper for insurance companies to provide birth-control than it is for them to deal with pregnancies and resulting complications.

Birth control is gonna backfire on these conservative white men who are using it attempting to malign Obama.

By protecting a woman's right to prescription drugs it protects everyone's right to prescription drugs.

"right to prescription drugs"
Wow our rights keep growing and growing, what a country.

"A right implies the following: In order to exercise your right to healthcare, for example, the law can be used to force someone to provide you care. That law would have to impose a cost on someone else. What about that person’s right to whatever it is they have to surrender to satisfy your right to healthcare? After all, what is healthcare other than a service provided by another human being.

Does anybody want to add your right to a cell phone while we are at it? The taxpayers of this country are shelling out $1.6 billion every year to pay for free cell phones for poor people. Anyone who is on food stamps, Medicaid or who earns up to 135% of the federal poverty line can apply for the entitlement. "

Santorum is NOT for Christ.

Ron Paul is far closer to Christ.

You couldn't be any more clueless, could you.
This issue is about separation of church and state, NOT about the availability of contraceptives. Birth control devises are available for free, at a myriad of places. NO ONE, I repeat, NO ONE is trying to stop that. They ARE objecting to the government MANDATING that religious organizations make them available. This is no different than the government mandating pork be served at Muslim schools!
If it's not against the law, freedom of religion trumps federal idiocy.

Obama boxed in on birth control

By GLENN THRUSH and CARRIE BUDOFF BROWN | 2/10/12 11:13 AM EST

He faces a dangerous schism on the issue.
Dems push W.H. on birth control
Chicago Cardinal to fight Obama rule
W.H. site flooded over contraception issue
Reid stops GOP contraception move
Body vs. soul in birth-control fight

President Barack Obama, with one swift contraception regulation, accomplished something his rivals have struggled to do: unify the Republican Party and fire up its base.

Obama to Announce Contraception Rule ‘Accommodation’ for Religious Organizations....OBAMA,LOONS,T HE VIEW LOSE!!...REPUBLICANS,TEAPARTY WINS!

HE CANNOT WIN THIS!!,,,,NUMBNUTS!!...EVEN "JOE" TOLD HIM NOT TO DO THIS INSANITY!!

HUSSEIN LOOKS RIDICULOUS!!..INCOMPETENT!!

GOD DAM AMERICA??....NOT SO FAST HUSSEIN!!

Media Ignores Santorum’s Support For Accused Child Molester Sandusky

The comparatively shocking scandal of Rick Santorum having sponsored alleged child molester Jerry Sandusky has been almost universally ignored.

Santorum, who has cultivated an image as a clean-cut social conservative trumpeting family values, nominated Sandusky for a “Congressional Angels in Adoption Award,” after Sandusky had already been accused of at least five cases of child molestation.

“Its philosophy is simple,” said Santorum of Sandusky’s charity,“It is easier to develop a child than to rehabilitate an adult.”

“Since the scandal broke into the news, Santorum has been circumspect in his comments about it. He has said he does not know Sandusky personally,” Following the revelation of the charge that a Penn State graduate assistant spotted Sandusky allegedly anally raping a young boy in a shower and then told head football coach Joe Paterno, Santorum defended Paterno, who did not inform the police of the alleged incident.

Despite Santorum’s surge before last week’s Iowa Republican primary that enabled him to virtually tie with Mitt Romney in first, the establishment media has uniformly failed to highlight how his sponsorship of Sandusky underscores Santorum’s hypocrisy when it comes to “family values”.

“Why has Rick Santorum not been questioned about his connections and support of Jerry Sandusky?,”“So why not the same scrutiny for Santorum’s sponsorship of Sandusky to receive the congressional angels in adoption award? Paul has disavowed anything to do with the racism that appeared in his newsletter which he never knew about, but we still haven’t heard if Santorum disavows his outright honor of Sandusky.”

Birth control IS a component of responsible behavior, whether a woman is married or single. Do you by any chance think only sexually promiscuous women use it? Even in the most committed relationships, married or otherwise, the number of children any couple can adequately provide financially for is limited by their joint incomes. And the last time I checked, responsible behavior goes BOTH ways. Men can also contract STD's, some of which are incurable. In addition to pregnancy, there are other problems that can arise from irresponsible behavior like fathering or giving birth to a child as a result of affairs outside marriage or a relationship. Those have a major impact on families as well.
A woman who conceives through rape, or a child who conceives through rape or incest, cannot be accused of irresponsible behavior, because she has been victimized. In either case, having birth control would be a Godsend, because it would prevent a child from being conceived under such horrible circumstances. The idea that only morally loose women need birth control stems from an antiquated view of women that was more appropriate during the 19th century.

Yes. Because God forbid that a married woman, with three kids, would EVER wish to have sex with her husband without risk of pregnancy.

I mean, what a total whorebag slut!!!

I'm sure YOUR mom never had sex again, after she had you.

Thanks for your moral example on this thread.

Actually, Santorum has said repeatedly that states have the right to ban contraceptives, if they choose.

Interesting you brought this up since ricky boy thinks victims of rape or incest should be forced to carry the fetus to term! He is clearly a lunatic!
