Planned Parenthood?

Who cares?

They waste no opportunity to construct a weak narrative attacking most of the denizens of conservative states, men and women, over an anonymous remark attached to a case that still has no official motive. Oh and PP doesn't really operate in the rural precincts which define many of those states.

Who's waging a "war on women" now?

That would be the people who want to cut PP's funding.

Ketsuko? Sometimes you don't sound like you

Should Planned Parenthood be everywhere? Would you support the funding that would make that possible?

I would support the funding given to the extremely limited PP being taken and shared out to those women's health orgs that DO have longer reach into the rural areas.

Then the same works for Cruz does it not? Hypocrisy Much?

Also Cruz has been one of the most outspoken Champions of said constitution and has shown that through his voting record and his standing on the senate floor

He has also represented the public in cases against the state that would have violated the constitution and WON

You might look up his background and past before spouting more nonsense

Why do men who have no idea about what it is like to be a woman, think they can dictate what happens to women's body?

Men should keep quiet on the issue..I am against abortion but in no way do I have the right to tell another what they can do with their body. I could understand if you were the father.

You cannot oppose a livable, minimum wage, support unrestricted gun rights, support the death penalty, support war or ask for the government to bomb the hell out of certain area because it will kill more innocents than radicals and then call yourself pro life.

The gun part...is not an argument to take guns from law abiding people but I am talking about those who oppose any reasonable gun laws which would make it extremely hard for a criminal or psychopath to get one.

I had to put that explanation in because when you talk about support for stricter gun laws..people always twist and turn it into taking guns and create an alternate scenario than the one actually being discussed.

People might be surprised.

Compared to our civilized peers. We are horribly barbaric when it comes to abortion. M any of them restrict abortion as early as 12 weeks and a lot of the rest don't go past 20.

Try doing that here, and all of a sudden, we're horrid people.

aside from the semantics of "restrict" (i assume you mean pass another law).... Nope.


So what is the purpose of this comment?


I think you want any irresponsible women to be able to change their mind and have an abortion after committing to starting a family with a man.



You know what. I bet you will at least attempt to bring yourself to the field unlike others.


I try.

i was saying nope, i was wrong, you were dead on. I do have a problem with irresponsible women (and men) who say they will do one thing, then they do another.

You got me.

also.... this is not the field.

By the way...he said "rubbers" not "condoms"...

And claimed that conservatives don't want to ban contraceptives. Yeah sure...not all do, but many do, As a whole and on principle they may not, but many of their persuasion don't want to as they probably own stock in the companies or favors to CEOs.

But they also don't want insurance to pay for them. They also preach abstinance. They also want to shut down PP, arguably the biggest provider of contraception. They also want to prevent distribution. And many don't see that they're voting patterns and attempts to influence this are actually impeding the reduction of abortions in this country.

Cruz also tried to blame liberals for the CS shooting.

Crazy is crazy.

We restrict. Why are you implying we don't?

By the way, are you pro-Israel? Do you know what their laws are?

Right?!! We would be!! But - that description of our 'civilized peers' policies is actually how it is here, too - and should be!!

I mean - the vast majority of legal abortion procedures are definitely done in the first trimester. The few in the second trimester would be due to obvious irredeemable faults in the fetus, or the jeopardy of the life of the mother.

I can't think of ANY case in which the mother underwent a third-trimester (late term or partial-birth) abortion....for purely personal opinions because she just "felt like it." Some might have, without being in mortal danger and pregnant with a toxic fetus....or perhaps due to mental illness, but NO SANE, otherwise HEALTHY GESTATING woman would 'choose' that.

I am aware of NONE happening under those circumstances .... No. Just, no.

If you are positing that any woman, anywhere, who is otherwise healthy and capable of uncomplicated live birth (vaginal or Cesarean) would CHOOSE a partial-birth abortion - then please, source it.

I find it some sort of amazing and hilarious that men keep discussing women's reproductive health care, like it's their business.


When women start having children through immaculate conception or without the need for male sperm, then i suppose you will have a leg to stand on

I find it frankly offensive that women believe that males who are also the biological parents of the offspring have no say in it what so ever.....

Militant feminism at work


The way I see it, guys have two choices:

1. Keep their sperm and DNA to themselves, under their ownership

-or-

2. Let it go

Once it leaves your body, you no longer have any control over it. You can't will your sperm to do anything. it might be your DNA, but do you have "rights" associated to your hair clippings? (those contain your DNA too) What about all the skin cells shed?

Just because your DNA becomes involved in a chemical process that eventually creates another human, doesn't mean you have to deal with it for 9 months. Your body doesn't actually physically change once you part with your sperm. A woman's does. Why should a man who spent (on average) less than 10 minutes with the woman have any say over how she spends the next 9 months of her life?
