I am surprised that people are not getting this -- or I have under gone some kind of time warp where I am surrounded by primitive Victorian thinking..
This bill is a protest of the right wing nuts trying to usurp a woman's choice of how her life career, etc. are to be played out. And the ABSOLUTELY INSANE concept that is being brought up by the wing nuts that birth control and family planning is wrong. These people such as Santorum (if you don't know much about him Google is not his friend) believe that sex is ONLY FOR PROCREATION - what planet are these people living on. I remember the out cry in the middle 60s when birth control pills were becoming widely available. This has been settled -- the population of the US no, of the world has moved on, well except for the Islamic fundamentalists and some cattholics and baptists, who have some pretty disgusting and degrading ideas on the roles of women in society too.
Disclaimer!!!! I am a man I can only offer and opinion -- because I am not a woman I don't have a dog in this and really have no say in this and that goes for every other male on the whole frigging planet.
Live begins at conception is the biggest pile of ignorant poppy cock I can imagine and deserves absolutely no place in the discussion -- yes I am blunt.
I.. first, assume you have no children; second, assume you don't want any; third, am highly amused by your location: "Alanta - where the not-so-bright go to breed".
What is your opinion on "personal responsibility"?
More importantly, do you think it's acceptable to have sex without any sort of birth control if one does not want children?
Wise choices are commendable: don't have sex unless you want a child.
Self-indulgence, done wisely is likewise commendable: birth control, condoms.
One should be smart enough to at least attempt to avoid problems.
Stupidity is not commendable, and shouldn't be accepted.
And I, being a guy, am smart enough to realize this, and realize that I, as a guy, have a right to choose to be safe as does the gal. I, being a guy, also think that if I'm dumb enough to have unprotected sex with a gal, and she gets pregnant, also think that I deserve the same right she has to choose whether or not to be a parent. If she can abort her child with blatent disregard to the man's desire, the man should likewise be able to disregard her desire and terminate his relationship with the child.
It's all about equal rights.
