If they want to make a choice, thats up to them and its with the advice of a doctor and loving parents and a loving family.
(CNSNews.com) - In expressing opposition to the House Republicans' "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) said politicians should not interfere with his familys health and well-being. He also had a message for the GOP, saying, I wont attempt to voice my views on your family and let my family alone. Dont go near my daughters.
Im experienced. Im the proud father of three daughters, two more that my wife brought to our marriage, six granddaughters. My wife brought two more to the marriage. So we got a full house of healthy and well-being young women. I dont want politicians making decisions for them when it comes to their health and well being, said Lautenberg on Capitol Hill.
He was joined by other Democratic senators at a press conference held to "express their opposition to legislation being pushed by House Republicans this week that would endanger women's health by severely limiting their access to affordable health care and reproductive health services."
Lautenberg continued, I call on my colleagues in the House. Do as you wish with your family. Tell your daughters, tell your wife, you do that. Thats the wonderful part about America. Its choice. Its choice and there should be no force used here but dont interfere with my familys well being.
I wont attempt to voice my views on your family and let my family alone," he said. "Dont go near my daughters. If they want to make a choice, thats up to them and its with the advice of a doctor and loving parents and a loving family. So weve got to strike down this outrageous assault on women's rights."
The focus of the Democrats criticism is the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.). The legislation would prohibit the expenditure of funds authorized or appropriated by federal law or funds in any trust fund to which funds are authorized or appropriated by federal law (federal funds) for any abortion. Prohibits federal funds from being used for any health benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion. It would also re-install a ban on D.C. abortion funding.
Lautenberg, who appeared with Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Al Franken (D-Minn.) at the press conference, also said the GOPs efforts to limit access to abortion services reminds him of a Third World country.
If they had their way, the reproductive rights of American women would be tossed away and it sounds to me like a Third World country thats requiring women to wear head shawls to cover their faces even if they dont want to do it," said Lautenberg. "This is America. Its not one of the third world countries that we see these tragic decisions hoisted upon the women."
47, 52 & 56. Don’t think they will be getting abortions anytime soon.
The feminists whine endlessly using their favorite word "choice" in matters of abortion, but they reject choice in gender roles. The Big Mama of feminist studies, Simone de Beauvoir, said, "We don't believe that any woman should have this choice. No woman should be authorized to stay at home to raise her children . . . precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one."
Alice_in_bubbaland to The Dinosaur...Don’t go near my daughter or anyone in my family for that matter!
Frank you hypocrite,
We have a few for you.
Don’t go near my healthcare.
Don’t go near my guns.
Don’t go near my wealth to fund your pet projects.
Number one big government liberal and he has the nerve to lecture us on the government’s “interference” in abortion?? Please...
The law allows them to murder their children if they desire. Just don’t force me to pay for it.
What an empty way of thinking. Choosing to kill my grandchild is ok, if my family decides it is.
But the rest of us slugs have to pay for it!
Are you in favor of killing babies? Yes or No.
Why even discuss any of the minutia?
‘authorized” to stay at home with her children? There is no higher authority than God.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
That doesn’t work.
The pro(had)-aborts that I know of simply say “it’s not a baby”,
and no amount of sonograms, DNA tests, or saving of way pre-mature babies
will even be considered, even to the point of the
fingers in the ears “na na na I’m not listening to you” denials.
But you see, binary answers aren’t good for people who feel subconsciously guilty about their positions.
If feminists believed in God,
they wouldn’t be feminists (as defined by the left).
Lautenberg is so old his daughters are probably already grandmothers. He is a disgusting human being and needs to be retired in the next election.
That old sob has more money than God, if he thinks I should pay for an abortion for his daughters, stay away from my money! I decide how to spend it along with a loving wife and family.
So Lautenberg is saying he does not mind if his daughters murder his grandchildren. Got it.
Last election cycle here in Australia a leftie woman told Tony Abbott (Conservative Pro-life Leader) that she didn’t want him rummaging around in her daughters knickers. This is almost the same but toned down for an American audience. I am amased at how much I see the lefts retoric seemd to get repeated in each country.
“Lautenberg is in his mid-eighties. Does he have any doaughters under 50?”
Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. I doubt his daughters are of child-bearing age anymore anyway.
They can do what they want, but if they want to murder their offspring, then they should pay for it themselves.
