If you hate men and women having sex just say so. Don't have it and don't tell anyone else they can't. Don't write laws to punish women for having sex. Because your a fascist. In America we frown on fascism.

I know you long for the days of the Puritans but their long gone. And people like you that fuss the most about the situation are always the ones caught in let's say...compromising situations.

Sex is more than just for procreation. Women like sex too, to bad you hate it. Maybe you should see a doctor or a psychiatrist. They have medicine for that you know.

It's Roe v Wade, which effectively legislated sex, along with all the subsequent funding encouraging irresponsible behaviors. Proponents of defining a human being as a human being are only dealing with truth. You thinking that women have ever been "repressed" in any culture other than the ones you don't want us to influence to keep women out of bags is the joke. People shouldn't have to pay for the weakness of men degrading women by convincing them they can't keep their legs shut. Worse yet... convincing women they can randomly kill unique human beings because in all of human history, suddenly they want temporal sneezes to control their lives. How shallow, weak and cowardly you make women to be.
My last post was foe you. Accidentally left your post off.

I sure don't remember that you were asked to pay for abortions. Or birth control. That last bugaboo was making employees offer insurance that women can purchase that offers birth control. NOBODY is making you pay. That was it. But if you stop birth control and abortions, you should be made to pay for the resulting childrens upkeep and education.

Oklahomans time to raise your taxes. Put your money where your mouth is! Oklahoma thinks that they can write a law that overturns Roe V Wade and makes many forms of the birth control pills illegal.

For the sake of argument, let's say you were successful. Unfortunately for the poor their birth rates will raise dramatically, while the ones with money will be able to leave Oklahoma and obtain abortions and the necessary birth control like always.

So when your welfare and medicaid costs increase don't you dare complain! So you want this law but when the effects of it come down the line and social services needs go through the roof because your kidding yourself that people who don't want to become parents will stop having sex.

Just how exactly are you going to enforce the law? Are you going to have a police force dedicated to investigating pregnant women? If someone buys a pregnancy test do they have to register?

Oklahoma the state that wants to control a woman's vagina.

And they dare to complain about Obamacare and the individual mandate. Hypocrites!
