    It all started with Eve. Adam, whom I suspect was a Republican, was angry that after Eve got his rib, she wanted to vote and get a job and be fairly paid. That ungrateful woman! Adam argued back and then Eve registered as an independent, and eventually became a swing vote soccer mom. But anyway…

    Fast-forward to February 2011 when anti-choice Republicans pushed a rogue measure to cut off all federal funding from Planned Parenthood, even though less than 3% of services provided by Planned Parenthood are abortions, none of which are paid for using federal grant dollars.


    In a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll while in an imagined face-to-face match up, President Obama currently trails Mitt Romney by six percentage points with male voters, but the president has an 18 point lead with women --- across political parties.

    Why should insurance pay for sex? I won't argue about covering BC for medical reason outside of pregnancy prevention, but why should insurance be mandated to cover sexual activities?

    Insurance is supposed to protect someone from catastrophic losses, not because they are horny.

    Plus, if women's reproductive issues are their own business, then why get the government involved?

    Because contraception prevents abortions and child abuse.

    And 40% of contraception is medically required for other issues.

    You really need to do a little research on this issue.

    There are other contraception methods that prevent abortion. Contraception does not prevent child abuse. Having manners and being human prevents child abuse.

    As I said, I don't have a problem with this. Learn to read. Plus, I would like to see some proof of this claim.

    Why should insurance pay for sexual activities?

    If the liberals want women en masse to believe that conservative politicians hate them, then libs will also have to convince them that their conservative husbands, fathers, brothers, etc. also hate them...so good luck with that.

    Yeah, they are losing. That's why Obama's approval rating dropped 8 points since this distraction started. :cuckoo:

    Actually the president is up 18 points over the Republicans with women.

    So we are having GREAT luck with that.

    Keep it up, please. We want to win the House and the Senate.

    WASHINGTON | Tue Mar 13, 2012 6:31pm EDT

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - For the first time since early July, more Americans approve of the job President Barack Obama is doing than disapprove, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll that shows his approval rating now at 50 percent.

    The poll, taken March 8-11 on the heels of reports that 227,000 jobs were added to the U.S. economy in February, indicates that Obama's rating has risen by 2 percentage points during the past month. The percentage of Americans who disapprove of the Democratic president was 48 percent, down from 49 percent in February.

    Some other polls have shown a recent dip in Obama's approval rating, and linked that to rising gasoline prices.

    But for most Americans, other economic trends during the past month have been relatively positive. Obama appears to be benefiting from that, and perhaps from a bitter Republican presidential campaign that at times has focused on divisive social issues such as abortion.Obama's approval rating up to 50 percent: Reuters/Ipsos poll | Reuters
