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."
The Inca culture sacrificed children in a ritual called capacocha.
Scientists have found that ancient Mexican and Mayan civilisations sacrificed children.
Sen. Lautenberg, Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Al Franken (D-Minn.). -- Great Philosophers.
All of these distinguished thinkers are well aware that the 'great civilizations' of the world practiced the sacrificial offering of children to the great spirit or to evil spirits, or to the ju ju bird or whatever was de rigueur to the current zeitgeist of the time.
If we want our economy to improve we must sacrifice too! Congress could make doctors wear the traditional Aztec Jawillabilla while they dismember the fetus and scatter its parts.
“If they want to shred their unborn babies, Im ok with that. It’s loving.”——why not just say that-—oh, you pretty much did.
“Pro choice” - phooey! Only choice is for the mother. The baby simply gets killed. The baby has no choice.
Lautenberg is in his mid-eighties. Does he have any doaughters under 50?
Senator Lautenberg, don’t go near my daughters and force them to pay for somebody’s abortion. Don’t go near my women folk and steal more of their money to fund your pet projects. Give them and me the choice.
I will be happy to let Mr Lautenberg’s loving family support his daughters’ aborting his grandchidren
If he will keep his hands out of my wallet to pay for it
From a Pro-Life Republican to Lautenberg: “Don’t expect to use my tax dollars to pay for your daughter’s abortions.”
what a hypocritical ba$stard. you'll shove ObiCare down our throats and then pull this holier than thou BS? F
“I dont want politicians making decisions for them when it comes to their health and well being,
I love the hypocrisy! This dipshiite doesn’t want the government telling his daughters how they should care for their health, yet he votes to FORCE medical coverage on the rest of us AND make us pay for procedures for others that we oppose.
Do we need any more examples of D.C. elites imposing laws on the minions while exempting themselves?
Is that so? What was/is his position on ObamaCare? What has the good Senator said about other FedGov overreaches?
Or is it, like the rest of his ilk, that abortion, homosexuality, and blasphemy trumps everything else.
The term “reproductive rights” is so misleading.
It really should be stated otherwise, i.e. “option to abort”
And another thing, it is not a “right”
From my understanding of the leftist mindset,
if “the government” doesn’t pay for it,
you’re “restricting the freedom” of those who can’t afford it.
I know, it’s totally upside down and inside out,
but what do you expect from people whose worldview is premised on Luciferian lies?
While I am totally pro life, I could make an exception when it comes to Lautenberg and his clan. Abort away; thin the gene pool.
Frank Lautenberg cheated to get on the ballot, so who cares what he thinks. He is a cheater.
Lautenberg actually has daughters under 50. I looked it up yesterday and if I recall correctly the daughters are now aged 47, 52, and 56.
Lautenberg is 87 years old.
“I have learned of the total disconnect of their thought process. “
If you think about it is part of the hate diseae that has infected the World.
The pro-aborts are not unlike the Islamofascist.
They hate the unborn just as much as the Muslims hate “infiedels”.
Frank, your daughters are way to old to cut the mustard and are irrelevant
Does anybody care what Senator Al Z. Heimer (D-NJ) thinks or says?
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.
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.
After voting for odumbocare, this must be from the onion
She had the choice, to engage or to not engage in the activity that created new life. It should not be her choice to destroy it.
Lautenberg is 87 years old.
Heh, I'm thinking of that scene in Smokey and the Bandit:
"I'm telling you for the last time... I have my young son in the car and I don't wanna hear that kind of language!"
“Grandpa is very old, Billy, and sometimes old people get confused...”
Senator Lautenberg needs to have retired a long time ago. I don’t want him near my daughters. If he feels this way I hope he makes it clear on zerocare issues. I don’t want my daughters going without mammograms etc. I wish this old man would just retire, he falls under my too old list & needs to be checked for dementia etc.
Before you waste time on a dementia test check for a pulse.
This is another example of how insidious are the lies about abortion, that this man thinks abortion is a loving choice for his daughters to make and her family to accept and condone.
Could he say this after seeing a 3D or 4D sonogram of one of his grandchildren? If he could, he is truly lost.
Too many people think of abortion as an abstract choice and not as the murder of an innocent human.
The waiter was usually told, "bring one check, and we'll divvy it up ourselves" -- so the total check was divided by the number of attendees.
My "share" frequently came out way over twice the cost of what I'd consumed. So. I started taking the radical step of asking the waiter to bring the bar bill separately.
Often, the bar bill was higher than the food bill -- and when I said "count me out of the bar bill participants", the libs often squealed at how "unfair" that was!
I wouldn't pay for Lautenberg's booze; why should I pay for his daughters' abortions?
(I haven't yet figured out how to avoid being taxed for Lautenberg's -- and others' -- gluttony...)
When I finally started asking the waiter to bring me a separate check -- and tipping handsomely for the privilege, I invariably still came out 'way ahead. And when the office libs called me "cheap", my response was, "Not so; I simply refuse to participate in Socialism when I can avoid it."
There is something fundamentally wrong with a parent who does not care if his daughters and granddaughters get abortions.
I wonder what Lautenberg would say to Kermit Gosnell about his daughters?
Sadly, we are seeing more parents/grandparents pressuring for the abortions of their prosperity. Many sidewalk counselors share accounts of girls being dragged kicking and screaming into abortion facilities by their own parents. One baby was saved in Austin recently. The authorities were called and through the Texas Justice Foundation, letters were given to the parents warning about coercing an abortion and then an injunction was placed.
It did save the life of THAT baby!
