Pathetic. It won't last 5 minutes in a constitutional challenge, since rights begin at birth or naturalization. Moreover, it wouldn't stop abortion anyway--no person can force another to sustain their life without the other's consent.

The Rand Paul supporters are not very bright and obviously have woman issues. It appears they are woman abusing lowlifes.

Evidently this woman didn't know that expressng herself is illegal and made her subject to the rebuke of any man in the vicinity. That's how KY does it.

My very liberal neighbor told me this morning she will voter for Rand Paul in the next election if he runs,and she sent him an e-mail thanking him for his filibuster. She is 48 years old, and has never votedfor a Republican in her life. I said he wantsto do away with abortion,and she said "I don't care!" no candidate is perfect.

The only 'solution' to abortion, is for every pregnancy to be intentional on the woman's part, and for any and all risks associated with pregnancy to ALSO be eliminated...

Other than that, abortion will never be eliminated. Criminalized, perhaps....ended, no.

No law in the world will prevent miscarriage, either - but these 'fetal personhood' laws will criminalize miscarriage too.

You keep thinking Democrats are as stupid as you. They aren't. They can figure issues out, and they know when their leaders are lying. President Obama has been President again for weeks, and the Republicans have not let him do a thing. He doesn't have enough Democrats to get anything done without them so he better compromise or sit out the next 2 years.

That works both ways; the reps can't push their agendas, and even more, they look like both obstructionists and elitists. It's obvious that their only goal is to stop anything obama does. Between their negative image and their great schism, dems should have a pretty easy time of it next election.

I thought 'libertarians' were for less government. This bill is just more fundietard pandering to illiterates and vatican cult members! A fetus is NOT a person with 'rights.'

Can we all mostly agree that abortion is the least desireable choice and there should be less of it? I know it is not a perfect world, and there will always be some form of it, but maybe we should not be promoting it and calling it a good choice? When you do a great job at work, do you jump up and shout and call it an abortion? Could any one of you perform one and feel great about it? Just sayin'

There should only be as many abortions as women want and/or need. Until we start rationing tonsillectomies and facelifts, there is no basis for limiting abortions. Abortion solves the problem of unwanted pregnancy; it is a good thing. Contraception is better and cheaper in the long run, but medicine deals with what IS, not what might have been.

If I knew my actios made a woman's life better, I'd feel great about doing one.

It is immoral, and it kills someone. You are correct.

Unfortunately, some of those supporters are women, just like there were women who wanted that idiot Rick Santorum to be President. Thank goodness THAT moron had to drop out of the race.

IMO women who support anti-choice politicians aren't very smart at all.

Then in my opinion this woman is an idiot, assuming this ridiculous story is even true.

Only men can end abortion.
When young men are ready to become sexually active, they should have a vasectomy. When they get married and want kids reverse it.
Problem solved.
Men who shoot a loaded gun without being prepared to raise a family are the irresponsible ones who make abortion a necessary procedure.

Human rights are inherent. The babies that you kill with abortion aren't capable of forcing anyone to do anything. They do however have the right to life, which the purpose of our government is to protect.

The woman is not required to carry a fetus if she does not want to.
