He's got a smash-mouth commie look to him, don't he? Looks like ABC pulled his article.

Maybe it was too much, even for THEM.

I read them. it was three conservatives and about 25 marxist and socialist apologists.

Someone actually said something like, "Of all the networks, ABC is the only fair one. We need to shut off all conservative news and radio by law!"

Again, my focus is the fact that opinion — pure, raw opinion — is being presented as news.

That, at least, is not news.

And I see ABC neglected to mention that the bill is co-sponsored by a Democrat.

Tait Sye (suit & tie on end), a spokesman for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, calls the proposed changes "unacceptable."

Tait Sye, a spokesman for Democrat-supporting America Coming Together.

America Coming Together (ACT) was a liberal, political action, 527 group dedicated to get-out-the-vote activities.

The group was primarily funded by Peter Lewis, George Soros, and labor unions, especially the Service Employees International Union, and was led by Steve Rosenthal, a former political director of the AFL-CIO.

Rape involves force. Statuatory rape does not involved force. WTF?

Well, that is the definition of the term "statutory". Even if the act does not explicitly qualify as a crime, we still hold it as a crime because of whatever factors might be involved. In the case of statutory rape, the child's age means that we ignore virtually every fact at issue.

For example, a 15 yr old girl and her parents could all tell a 24 yr old that she is 19, she shows a (fake) ID, and she instigates all of the "action". There is no "mens rea" (guilty mind), and no forcible act... but the 21 yr old can still be easily convicted of rape. (And yes, this has happened in my state, Indiana.)

Again, for all "statutory" laws, we basically ignore the facts, and call it a crime, just because of XYZ.

no, I don’t think so. Insurance companies don’t have to cover abortions, and states can keep policies that cover abortions off their exchanges. Louisiana did that right after the bill was passed.

I think the bill allows people to buy insurance policies that cover abortions on the exchanges as long as the state still allows insurance companies that provide that service on their exchange.

DailyKos is filled this week with “outrage” diaries (”Was This Rape ‘Forceful’ Enough, Mr Boehner”, etc) about this bill from slutty chicks, including one who did 10 shots and passed out at a frat party, waking up to a guy dismounting, and calling it “rape”. Ridiculous. A larger point: just ban money for ANY abortion, and don’t worry about HOW the pregnancy came about. That shouldn’t be the government’s concern.

I call that rape, though. If you pull a Laz Quote "I'd hit it." and act on it, when your 'partner' is drugged (and alcohol is a drug) to the point of unconsciousness, then that, is rape.

The opinion that one should be pro-life with exception to rape/incest/health reasons/etc. almost makes less sense to me than being pro-abortion.

What gets me is the people who abort a child because prenatal tests show the baby has "defects."

Anyone who chooses to take the risk of begetting a child, should be prepared to accept that child, no matter what illness or "defects" the child may have.

Who knows, even a child who is born "perfect" might someday be involved in an accident that results in disability. Say, a brain injury. Does that make it ok to kill that born child, now that he is no longer "perfect"?
(Actually I have witnessed a case where the elitist parents did exactly that.)

Also astonishing to me is the number of people who happily say "I don't care if our new baby will be a boy or a girl -- as long as it's healthy."

As long as it's healthy?

To me a baby is a gift from God, to be greeted with love, whether healthy or not.

What truly confuses me is the large number of religious people who ignore this and vote as demorats. Inconceivable.

Or as Republicans.

I didn’t mean that.

My meaning regarding rape is all this open sexualization in our regular high-profile society tends to lead to more rape.

Most cost-effective solution. Quick results. Easy turn over. Prevents furure costs. Is entirely logical in a cost-analysis sense...
