Don't get any funny ideas about owning those uteruses, gals

Even though the Democrats have taken Congress and can work to block any more right-wing nutjobs being appointed to the judiciary by George Bush, and even though the new Democratic-controlled Congress won't be introducing any legislation to chip away at abortion rights, the Bush administration is still working overtime to make sure American women understand their uteruses belong to the Republicans.

According to The Washington Post: "The Bush administration has appointed a new chief of family-planning programs at the Department of Health and Human Services who worked at a Christian pregnancy-counseling organization that regards the distribution of contraceptives as "demeaning to women."

Understand, they are not just oposed to abortion rights, they are opposed to contraception.

The Post notes the "pregnancy counseling group" this genius worked at "supports sexual abstinence until marriage, opposes contraception and does not distribute information promoting birth control at its six centers in eastern Massachusetts."

Lovely.

I have never understood the logic of these clowns who say they are opposed to abortion - but then work to prevent birth control information or even contraceptives from being provided to prevent unplanned pregnancies.

And for a movement that treats women as second class citizens who should not be able to control the most personal part of their lives, their goddamn reproductive systems no less, to then call anything "demeaning to women" takes brass balls. (An appropriate term, by the way, as most of the leading anti-abortion nuts tend to be men).

The contraception thing puzzles me too. If they don't want abortions like they claim, why do they try to make it harder for women to avoid getting accidently pregnant?

megster and jbk you're both not getting it - it's not just abortion they are opposed to, it's sex for pleasure! Sex for anything other than reproducing is wrong in their mind. That's what the bible tells them and that's what they believe. If you're not having sex to make a baby you shouldn't have sex at all, that's why they don't approve of contraception.

And don't forget the hypocritical factor. Maybe the religious types really do believe in not having sex outside marriage but you just KNOW those repub politicans are screwing around not to mention that if one of their daughters got pregnant they would be at an abortion clinic so fast your head would spin!

Why do you look to mock those who hold religious views because they disagree with you. If my faith says killing a baby is a sin, and everyone knows it is, and also is against contraception because at its heart that is preventing a human life from being born then you should not be so quick to look down your nose at a lot of Americans who believe that especially when it is given free to teenage girls in school. You can crow all you want about the DIMocrats in the congress but we still have a man who believes in GOD in the white house and he will protect our unborn. You havent won so much and come the next election the righteous in America will see what you have done and take back our congress again. Laugh now if you want but you wont be laughing over the tears and death of the innocent.

bally 107 do you only fuminate about abortion?? Is that the sole issue your life revolves around? I have seen you comment on this blog on that topic but never anything else and they write about a lot of topics. Maybe you have but I've missed it.

The blind worship from the right to someone like Bush like Bally is scary.

Sorry but opposing abortion does not make you a nut. This demonizing from the left is why so many middle Americans hate the left.

cici I have lots of interest besides abortion but there isn't anything more important than saving the lives of the millions of babies killed every year by the left that would make me bother to waste my time by writing blogs about your side. And grey goose it's not blind worship to admire a man who walks the walk like PRESIDENT BUSH. I wonder how many of the people on your side blindly admire a degenerate like Bill Clinton??? And marcus you are absolutely right that's why America hates the left when they see all the demonizing of us from people like Al Franken.

I saw a preview for the Dixie Chicks movie, and a protestor was holding up a sign saying something about it being treason to mock our president. Yet you see people mocking Bill Clinton all the time. Was I imagining all that time he was our president?

I wonder how many other blogs Bally 107 reads and comments on....

not a hipster I see you still seem fascinated by my comments whenever I make any. Not that its any of your business but I read and comment on any blog I want to if they say anything I want to talk about. I wonder how many get your words of wisdom. Why you feel the need to comment on mine I dont know.

That last comment was mine I wrote it too fast and to "not a hipster" who likes to try to get me mad let me say that maybe sometimes you do but with your attitutude toward sex or drinking or the preciousness of life I also feel sorry for you. And anyone who mocked Clinton did so for a reason!

Not a hipster said...

Fascinated by your comments? No. Source of laughter? Yes.

And I would hardly call what I say "words of wisdom." I'm not so self involved to think that my opinions are the end-all-be-all solution to anything.

I'm also curious how you think you know what my attitudes about sex or drinking are. Oh, did you take a joke I made about drinking seriously?

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!

Sorry but until Bush is out of the White House abortion rights are not safe in this country.
