Any possibility that you can see of baby killing being considered a moral issue - or can you only see partisanship?


Of course it's a moral issue. It's also a medical issue. It's also a civil rights issue.

 

It's conservatives who want to deny women drug coverage for contraceptives, as was remedied under the ACA for women who have insurance. But then there are women on Medicaid who do not get this coverage in many states (like red states). They also seem to forget that the male counterpart is equally responsible.

 

 


Civil rights stop unfair treatment based on race, gender, preference, etc Yet you consider the killing of a baby included. I'd say that was unfair treatment base on age or "not being wanted"

 

So, please, wander down another path.

 

I fully agree with the responsibility of the father - let's nail him rather than killing the baby.

 

I am not opposed to contraception, Medicaid and PP are involved in that and should continue to be and expanded if needed.

That and failure to provide evidence-based sex education to children.

You don't think much of women, do you? "Can no longer control their bodies or their lives......"????????????????????????????


Not when fascists tell them what they can or can't do with the bodies...

As usual, your silly clip is unrelated to the post theoretically being responded to.

And then the usual "fascists" - defined as those who are not aligned with your Marxist vision of America.  Actually, you are wrong again.  I wonder why Conservatives HATE the REAL meanings of words....

Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical, right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.


As you like to say, thanks for making my point. There is nothing in there that relates to Conservatives nor our President and yet the left throws it out regularly.

We are back sliding in this country, and many of us who listened to Trump while he was campaigning, saw and heard what he was targeting. So it comes as no surprise what is happeneing now, but what is really troubling is how do we stop it? We can nitpick each others opinions day in and out, but that is not going to stop Trump and his band of merry Republicans who are out for themselves, at the risk of future generations.

Why?  This article explains it fairly well. In a word: Control. 

 

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/white-patriarchy-abortion-ban-law-837026/

 

Many of the penalties being imposed for abortion are more stringent that those imposed against rapists. Why is that? And why are men not punished? They are equally responsible. 

 

I also agree with Scout on the rounding up of the 'religious voters', most of whom are single issue voters. Donald Trump couldn't care less whether a woman gets an abortion or not. As long as he campaigns against it and appoints the justices they like, they will vote for him, and he knows it.
