Well, at least there's no possible ulterior motive.

I grew up in a pretty religious household (in TX, btw) and I don't ever remember birth control being a big deal. I remember we thought Catholics were WEIRD for being against it. Why is it a big deal now? I don't get why.

"Part of their identity is the potential to be a mother," Pedulla said.

I've decided that that phrase is the most succinct, complete, and appropriate response for any story I hear about GOP legislators introducing laws like this.

"no employer shall be required to provide or pay for any benefit or service related to abortion or contraception through the provision of health insurance to his or her employees."

State Sen. Clark Jolley (R)


Hey look, another Republican asshat who wants to financially punish women for daring to want to have safe sex and decide when and if they get pregnant.

"Part of their identity is the potential to be a mother," Pedulla said."They are being asked to suppress and radically contradict part of their own identity, and if that wasn't bad enough, they are being asked to poison their bodies."

The crazier than a shiat house rat notion that "Contraception = Poison" aside for a moment...

They (women) are not "being asked" to make basic healthcare a part of what their health insurance covers they themselves are asking for this.

And you are screaming "FU Gals!" at the top of your lungs.

Let's be crystal clear about that.

As to Dr Vested Interest's interesting theory?

I'd like to ask two question:

How does any conservative women ever vote Republican.

Do they understand that "pro-choice" means, you don't have to take birth control or have an abortion if you don't believe in it?
 
2013-02-26 12:33:23 AM  
But is it a legitimate poison? Because, you know, the body has ways to shut birth control down.

Maybe we can talk them into taking a small amount of birth control every day to build up an immunity.  You know, so when Obama floods the water supply with pharmacological baby holocaust, the right thinking, god-fearing women can continue to breed.
Please, everyone, make something nutjobs will believe, like Wal-mart is standing with god so any birth control you get from them is for building up an immunity, then post it on facebook to all the idiots you know, denounce it or whatever you have to do to get them to buy it.  I think we can turn this around on them.

It's unfortunately not just about women poisoning their own bodies. It's about selfish women poisoning the bodies of other women, too. See, here's what a lot of people don't know. Women's bodies become attuned to each others', sort of like drummers in a drum circle will after a period of time fall into the same, regular pattern. Not that I'm saying that I advocate drum circles, of course. Farking Asheville. What I'm saying is that you get a pack of women together in one house, give them a couple of months, pretty soon their bodies will all fall into the same pattern with one another. Which is basically a cleaned up way of saying they'll all be on the rag at the same time.

This is true. This is why you never want to live with more than two women at a time. Seriously, people, don't farking go there.

But anyway, what birth controls do here is basically introduce new hormones into a woman's body. Which are, in essence, a type of virus. Like all viruses, they can become airborne and wreak all kinds of destruction. Think about that: airborne hormone-based birth control viruses. Now imagine what happens when one woman essentially chooses to become a walking incubator for a birth control virus, and she exposes herself to other women. Just like that, kapow, their bodies begin to fall into that drum circle pattern I mentioned before, except now it's a drum circle where every third drummer falls dead.

Don't get me wrong here; that would be a good thing where most drum circles are concerned. But for a group of ovulating women, there are some serious implications that must be considered. One woman wants take birth control, so as a result every other woman around her must be exposed to it, too? Is it fair for her to deny every woman she comes into contact with the chance to be pregnant? Picture that houseful of women, and only one of them, Randy, is a grizzly feminist who wants no more than a barren womb. The other four, on the other hand, Susie and Allison and Thuraya and McKenzie, want to meet Mr. Right, want his seed to find root in their fertile fields. But now they can't; it's not enough that they're all stuck on McGrizzly's menstruation cycle, but they're doomed to be as barren as her, too? And she's probably a lesbian to boot. It just doesn't seem fair. It doesn't make much sense. It might even be, I'd hazard to say, unethical. But there we are. There we are.

"The American black women are ignorant of the real motive behind the so-called birth control schemes proposed and demanded by white officials. The motive behind these schemes is not designed to promote the welfare of black families, but to eliminate these families in the future" === Message to The Blackman in America

Reactionary men in general hate the idea of birth control because it gives them less control.

I'm going to write a letter to my congressman, proposing all male legislators get a vigorous urethral cleaning with a piece of barbed wire soaked in tabasco sauce every time they mention any gynecological procedure or contraception, along with a colonoscopy performed with a 1990-vintage VHS camcorder every time childbirth is mentioned. No anesthesia, either. That stuff is poison.

2013-02-26 06:14:29 AM  
The FDA approved the first oral birth control pill in 1960, and that type of contraception is so safe that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends making it available without a prescription, as it is in most other countries around the world.

Whaddya know, ThinkProgress and Bobby Jindal are on the same page.

But forcing women to undergo a pelvic exam to get a prescription...THAT kind of intrusive medical procedure is okay.

No? It's an injustice? Well, we'll certainly be seeing some legislation to remedy this, with the president using his bully pulpit to speed it along, yes?

Okay ... after RTFA it would appear that to the esteemed cardiologist that BC is not so much a literal poision, as much as a metaphorical "poison".

Because it supresses you from reaching your "true destiny" of being a brooding mare.

Can we pretty please apply this policy to people with type two diabetes, schizophrenia, high cholesterol, depression, and infertility. Because, you know, obviously God wanted those people to have those conditions, and any pharmaceutical that changes that is just a poison, right???

It seems to go along with their preferred sexual education courses. Why treat people like adults and give them accurate information about the risks of activities you deem inappropriate when you can spread misinformation that might discourage people from doing that activity? If a side effect is more people who participate in the activity are harmed as a result, so much the better.
