Hey everyone. I don't why Subby submitted this with a Newsmax link, but I took the bullet for you all and posted the text.

Now if you excuse me, I need to go delete all the pop ups for generic Viagra, gold, and disaster seeds.

A proposed bill to protect access to abortion services is a "manifestation of a war on women," Sen. Ted Cruz charged Tuesday.

Speaking at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Texas Republican questioned the Women's Health Protection Act, which would prevent states from implementing restrictions-such as doctors' admitting privileges at local hospitals, structural requirements for clinics, mandated waiting periods, and mandated ultrasounds-that make abortion services more difficult to get.

The bill is aimed at actions like those in Texas, which last summer passed a set of restrictive laws that has already closed about a third of the abortion clinics in the state, the National Journal reported.

There were 40 clinics operating in 2011; 20 are still open, the National Journal notes, and all but six are expected to close.

"This legislation is a very real manifestation of a war on women, given the health consequences that unlimited abortion access has had on many woman," Cruz said of the proposed bill.

Though Democrats say the bill would prevent states from singling out abortions and protect women's reproductive rights, with no Republican support, the bill has little chance of passing the House and critics dismissed the measure as a political tactic aimed at the midterm election.

"This bill is a weak political ploy," said Iowa Republican Sen. Charles Grassley. "It's unfortunate that the [Senate] majority is using this issue to appear compassionate and concerned about women's rights when, in reality, the bill disregards popular and common sense laws enacted by various states aimed at protecting women and children across the country."

Breitbart News wrote Tuesday the proposed bill is "so far-reaching in its deregulation of the abortion industry, pro-life advocates have named it the 'Gosnell Prerogative Act,'" referring to Philadelphia physician Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murder.

"This legislation being considered is extreme legislation," Cruz said at the hearing.

"It is legislation designed to eliminate reasonable restrictions on abortion that states have put in place. It is designed to force a radical view from Democrats in the Senate: that abortions should be universally available, without limits, and paid for by the taxpayers."

The National Journal notes states are currently allowed to set abortion regulations, as long as they do not impose an "undue burden" on women seeking the procedure. Republicans argue the new bill is broad enough that it would eliminate any state regulation at all.

"The bill is really about just one thing: It seeks to strip away from elected lawmakers the ability to provide even the most minimal protections for unborn children, at any stage of their prenatal development," Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, told the National Journal.

"While the proposal is so sweeping and extreme that it would be difficult to capture its full scope in any short title, calling the bill the 'Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act' would be more in line with truth-in-advertising standards."

Republican lawmakers said the Democrat-backed bill was overreaching and interfered with state rights.

"I don't recall Congress ever passing a law that prohibited states from enacting certain categories of laws simply because Congress says so," said Republican Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch.

"I can't imagine why any state legislature would support this no matter their position on abortion."

At the start of Tuesday's hearing, Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn held up a photo of her grandson's ultrasound, saying: "I could tell, three months before he was born, that he had my eyes and nose. For a grandmother, that's a really big deal," the National Journal reported.

"We all want what's best for women," she said. "We differ on what that is, and we differ how to get there."

Do you want your curse words to sound gentle? Let's compare. At the top of your voice yell, "Merde!" [Maird] Now do the same thing with "Scheiße!" [Shyszen] Of course, in this particular instance, nothing is more satisfying than good, old Anglo-Saxon, but you get my drift.

French lacks the vocabulary.  They don't have many really good three- or four-star offensive words.  You've got putain, merde, you put them together for putain de merde, and then kind of run out of steam... foutre is barely saltier than "damn", salaud/salopard isn't all that satisfying, and they don't have anything even close to as versatile as fark.

Plus you can end up sounding poetic if you're not careful.

You probably want German, Russian, or other eastern European - those are some really good yelling languages.

Certainly not today. One of my Facebook friends who is the living caricature of a Tea Partier posted a note about how Obamacare is raising all these tax rates, and it turned out that not only was it a chain e-mail, but every single piece of the note was utter bullshiat. I think he likes lying because it helps get the narrative across.

Facebook has exposed a truly horrific vein of stupidity for all to see, hasn't it? I actually wish I didn't know that people I consider friends - not to mention family - actually think like that.

The really frightening thing is that there are people out there that gobble up this shiat and think what he said makes a lick of farking sense. I mean, I get the fact that you think abortion is the worst thing in the universe, but people CHOOSE to have an abortion. Making it easily available has nothing to do with making that choice outside of the fact that people who actually DO want to have an abortion are able to do it without having to jump through a dozen hoops or drive 500 miles to get it done.

This is true, but it's a good way to get the GOP folks, like Ted Cruz, to say incredibly stupid shiat, like he did. Unlike the many political tactic votes to repeal/defund the ACA, the Dem comments against those actions actually sounded reasonable. Whereas "This legislation is a very real manifestation of a war on women, given the health consequences that unlimited abortion access has had on many woman," is farking derp-tastic.

Has Ted Cruz hired a firm to scrub the Internet to references to Ted Cruz being gay and in the closet? Seems links refering to Ted Cruz being gay are removed regularly. Just can't think of anything else in my opinion that would cause someone to be so any women and anti-gay than Ted Cruz having a secret desire to be the versatile bottom he was born to be.

Before, because it's more of true shaming if the implication is you don't want a baby belly throwing off the lines of your string bikini. But, you know, that would work both ways. Right to Lifers missed it. I think you have a career in advertising.

Wait...why before bikini season?  Wouldn't "Right to Life" logic dictate that they would spike just after bikini season?

Or am I just wasting my time by trying to understand their tortured logic?

Before, because it's more of true shaming if the implication is you don't want a baby belly throwing off the lines of your string bikini. But, you know, that would work both ways. Right to Lifers missed it. I think you have a career in advertising.


THAT's why they think women have abortions?

My brain hurts now.
