Report: Romney Administration to Move Swiftly to Take Contraceptives Away from Women

In a DailyMail article we read:

‘Virginia is neck and neck as well,’ [Jim] Messina said. ‘We continue to feel very good about our chances to carry it there..in Northern Virginia Romney’s going to have defend his wanting employers to decide whether you get contraception services for you or your wife or your daughters and sons.’

Who believes this crap? Jim Messina is an idiot for saying it, but you are dumber than a doornail if you believe it.

Reducing Health Care Costs by Reducing Pregnancies

Yesterday I posted a lengthy response to an article recently published in an ‘ethics’ journal arguing that newborn children are not fundamentally different than ‘fetuses,’ and if we agree it is alright to kill ‘fetuses’, we can kill newborn children for the exact same reason.  The authors attempted to make their argument in such a way that it would not apply to all people, putting a hedge between the rest of us and the completely defenseless;  I make that ‘hedge’ to be about 6 inches tall, and easily leaped.

Do your part for the economy: have fewer kids, abort if necessary

There are days when I wish I didn’t keep abreast of the news.  I learned today that Nancy Pelosi and the Dems are trying to pass funding for contraception in the stimulus bill that they are trying to get through Congress.  Now, in theory this money would only go towards ‘family planning,’ ie, contraceptions, not abortions.  However, we have to remember that for many people, abortion is a contraception.  The clearest example of this is the belief that just because you wipe out a human embryo in the first couple of days after conception, you haven’t actually aborted the child.… continue reading...
