    Yeah. It's obvious.

    Yeah. It undercuts the current liberal Democrat Parody talking pointless.

    But yeah. It's still true.

    It doesn't matter--we have a GOP candidate in Rick Santorum that is continually stating the the U.S. Supreme Court was wrong in it's 1965 decision to slap down the Connecticut statute that did ban contraceptives. The U.S Supreme court made a decision contrary to Rick Santorum saying STATES do not have the RIGHT to BAN contraceptives--yet Santorum is still arguing with them.

    Griswold v. Connecticut

    Of course no states TODAY--would dream of banning Birth Control contraceptives--but we have a candidate in Rick Santorum that believes States should have the RIGHT to intervene into the intimate relationship between a man & woman--(husband/wife) decisions.

    Rick Santorum: States Should Have Power To Ban Birth Control, Sodomy

    No Santorum--the U.S. Supreme court is there--to protect individual rights from freak social nut cases like you.

    It does matter.

    There is no state that seeks to do any such thing.

    So the effort to create an issue is fundamentally dishonest and plainly stupid and plodding.

    (BTW, it is ok to debate the judicial wisdom of SCOTUS precedent, even if you don't like where the discussion leads you.)

    This.

    "Conservatives" talk a lot about being small government. How any of them can support a guy who thinks married couples should not be allowed to plan when they have kids is beyond me.

    How any liberal idiot can support the incumbent who daily tramples upon what the Constitution plainly DOES say is beyond all reasonable people.

    Part of the reason that states aren't trying to ban contraceptives is because such an act would be blatantly counter to constitutional jurisprudence. However, that hasn't stopped states entirely. States (and the federal government, for that matter) try to limit access to certain contraceptives in any number of ways. Perhaps most prominent is Mississippi's recent unsuccessful "personhood" amendment, which may have banned (had it been successful) methods of contraception which prevent fertilized eggs from entering the womb.

    It was a wrong decision. Start thinking with the brain and not the emotions.

    Liberals are ‘enemies of the Constitution,’ or so you and others on the right believe, consequently there’s no hypocrisy on their part.

    Conservatives, however, seek to violate the right to privacy and empower the state, clearly in conflict with the dogma of ‘small government.’

    You folks MUST someday try to clarify your thinking and your misuse of rhetoric.

    An abortifacient is not a contraceptive.

    See, the thing is about that, you can't point to one single thing Obama has done or said that "tramples upon what the Constitution plainly DOES say".

    Whereas with Santorum, he can't shut up about how few rights he thinks women have!
