Sen. Tammy Baldwin: Birth Control ‘Basic to Our Economic Prosperity’
Cybercast News Service ^ | January 28, 2014 - 5:42 AM | Susan Jones

Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) says it was women joining the workforce after World War II that helped the economy grow, producing a “strong and healthy middle class.” And that continues to be the case today, she told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Monday.

“And now, in very, very significant numbers, women are…a part of the workforce and have contributed greatly to allowing families to get ahead in the economy. What permits that is women being able to control when or whether they have children and how many. And it is so basic to our economic prosperity that women have that control.” …

The post-war economy would’ve boomed with or without women in the workplace.

I saw an article the other day that in NY more than half of all black babies are aborted.

Too bad her parents didn't practice abortion.

18 years of child support payments impacts mens’ earning potential and lifestyles too.

They only get one time to decide if they “want” to become a father and that is when they consent to the sex act. Women can shirk their own responsibility to their baby up into the third trimester. In Europe they want to extend that out to several weeks/months after birth.

Well, some liberal feminazi types say that men should have no say in issues of birth control. So, how is it that an openly lesbian female is going to tell us about women and birth control and families? Do the same liberal criteria apply, namely, that Baldwin has no right to an opinion because she has no husband and no children and no family situation in the first place?

Or is it okay for her to speak out because she spouts a liberal line???

Womyn’s positive effect on economic growth is questionable at best. But their effect on the family and the American culture, both direct and indirect, is undeniable and irrefutable.

And with all this supposed ‘progress’, they still whine and carry on like two year olds.

To the sex positive/anti-abstience pushing radical socialist feminist Left, it is “unhealthy” not to act on sexual desires. There is no such thing as “cheating”, just a “patriarchy” that “makes married women the property of their husbands”.

The goal is to smash the patriachy, smash the establishment, smash the state.

Free love isn’t free. It takes a heavy toll on society and the human debris it leaves behind.

The republicans have yet to articulate that it’s not birth control we have a problem with. It’s paying for it with taxpayer dollars that’s the problem.

Yeah.

And

“War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.”

Progressives all have the same mental weaknesses, don’t they?

But, perhaps this is a circular argument, since one needs a challenged brain in order to willingly become a progressive.

Well, since she knows that the post-WWII economy was rapidly expanding, can she explain how that was since birth control was much less available and much less effective during that time frame?

These people always think they have something brilliant to say, but then you can usually blow-up their stupid arguments by simply looking at the facts!

Yeah, the economy is so great it now takes two paychecks just to survive, instead of one. What progress. And the women who entered the workforce during the war mostly went back to staying at home when their men came home from war.

This is called “eating the seed corn”. More people in the workforce today at the expense of fewer people tomorrow.

Of course they prefer to import workers from south of the border because they vote the right way. Problem is most of them go strait to welfare and none have engineering degrees.

She is so out of date she belongs in a museum of the 1970s. In our post crash world, we have too many unemployed, and too many children raised in single parents households. Our birth rates is so low we have to import replacements for the children women are not having. Rebuilding two parents families where one works and one raises the children would do wonders to rebuild the economy.

It’d be a start. The Founders were adamant that “religion and private morality” (including strong traditional families) were the pillars upon which the USA stood, and removing them means that the USA collapses.

What helped our economy grow after WW2 is that the factories of Europe had been destroyed in the war. American factories, which had ramped up capabilities to support war machinery production, switched to “everything else” production to rebuild a continent’s infrastructure. The surest way to replicate those boom times is for the US to attack and destroy another continent.

Which is why abortion cannot be a right. Rights have to apply equally to all citizens. The only remedy for men would be to enact a “legal abortion” where a man can renounce his paternity from the outset through the courts since he cannot compel a medical abortion upon the woman. Who’s for “equal rights?”

Birth control is basic to the demise of a race, culture, nation, or civilization. Plus it is rebellion to God.

FAMILIES are “basic to our economic prosperity”.

Copulating like dogs without forming family units is why we’re in the mess we’re in.

I thought women joined the workforce DURING WWII to replace the men who’d gone off to war, then went home as the men returned. Something about creating the ‘baby boom’ generation? Then in the late 60s/early 70s, women’s lib came into play.

The rights belong to the victim of the crime of abortion, the infant(s).

The “it's MY body” myth is a lie. Her body ends at the umbilical cord. There may be one or more additional bodies at the other end.

There are “siamese twins” who are conjoined. They've been permitted 2 votes and separate marriages. The courts have already ruled on this issue.

Obama even sentenced live babies outside of the womb to death by neglect if they survived an abortion. It wasn't about someone's "body" the body was no longer in play.

Nobody is trying to make it illegal to use birth control.

There are churches who preach a religious objection to birth control, but they are not trying to change the law to force their religious beliefs on others.

This article is part of the deception that started at that fateful 2012 presidential debate, when the democratic operative asked the republicans whether they supported the push to ban birth control.

Sadly, the response wasn’t the entire panel of republicans calling the guy an idiot and walking off the stage. Instead, they treated it like a real question, and thus “the war on women” was launched.

Birth control should be legal. Nobody should be forced to buy insurance that covers it, or to sell insurance that covers it. And government should not encourage it, because our country will only survive if the citizens of the country have children to replace the dying population.

That is the reason government should encourage marriage — but only marriages that have the theoretical possibility of producing offspring that can be raised by the two biological parents. And government should encourage childbearing by providing support for expectant and new mothers, child tax credits, etc.

She thinks that because it improved her household income that it must make for a great long term, national economic model.

The only long term benefit is that she didn’t add more liberal idiots to voing rosters.
