NYT Opinion Editorial

If Mitt Romney and his vice-presidential running mate, Representative Paul Ryan, were to win next month’s election, the harm to women’s reproductive rights would extend far beyond the borders of the United States.

In this country, they would support the recriminalization of abortion with the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and they would limit access to contraception and other services. But they have also promised to promote policies abroad that would affect millions of women in the world’s poorest countries, where lack of access to contraception, prenatal care and competent help at childbirth often results in serious illness and thousands of deaths yearly. And the wreckage would begin on Day 1 of a Romney administration

It falls on deaf ears though. Rethuglicans don't give a shit.
People who want us to pay for their shit are the true thugs. That includes contraception.
The irony is always delicious when Goopers say that.

Poorest states=highest GOP voting=most public aid given.


Let's all say it together now. Duuuuuuuuuuuuh.
There's an easy way to fix that: put an end to all the welfare programs.

You wouldn't ever endorse that, now would you?

Endorse starvation? hmmm. no. I don't think I'd do that.

On the other hand, it would be mostly goopers that would die.

yes, there WAS quite a switch around in 2008. This does not change the fact: The poorest of the poor, the ones needing the most, and baring the 2008 election,more red states, are the ones voting for the "get rid of public aid" people.

Dumbfuckery at it's finest.

Quite true! It's indicative of how immoral most of them are, only thinking about themselves. I am beyond the age of needing an abortion if necessary but I care about the future for other women.

There are no such things as women's rights.

There is the right of anyone to use free speech to make an ass out of themselves.

And you exercise it frequently.

Well, let's don't pay for YOUR roads, public works, and dozens of other things you get as a benefit of others paying for them. And the fallacy of the argument by selfish republicans is that MOST women and men who have medical treatment have paid for their insurance or are paying for Medicaid, etc. through paying taxes of all sorts. It is disgusting that people like you cannot see this and think that every person who gets help has never worked in their lives, is not working, has not paid taxes and fees that help pay for these programs. It is beyond selfish and terrible. When someone can't get health care and develops TB or some other contagious disease, I hope they are stuck in an elevator full of republicans!:mad: Don't you see how helping others (who also help themsleves and others as I've explained) helps YOU and those around you and prevents you from getting diseases from others or from having to bear the burden of it in some other ways? Yikes!:mad:

Yes, ignore facts you don't like...

There is a 1980 landslide forming, and while the MSM is doing its best to pretend it isn't there and that the race is still close.

It isn't, and it won't be. The electoral cake is baked.

I love it....A red state is 100% red.

Except that most of the southern states (the ones that often get cited in this little deflection) used to be "blue states".

Has anyone taken the time to explain how that transition worked and why the red states get to deal with a welfare class that has existed for over five decades ?
