As we all have seen recently, the GOP is going on a rampage against abortion and family planning, including birth control (Rick Santorum even said contraception is unnatural). This is on top of their endless attacks on teachers and the department of education, and school lunches for poor children. Well, I found an article that correlates all of these factors together as being critical for prosperity.

I have believed for a long time that the elites of this country want to bankrupt us so they can enslave us, and I think this article bolsters my case that the underlying target of all these policies is not religion, but economic warfare. They emphasize the importance of female education to a society's prosperity- well it's pretty hard to educate young women when they get pregnant as teenagers because they can't have contraception or abortion.

Its not just the GOP its the Establishment Government... those who want us as ignorant slaves.... which in a way we are.

People that blame republican or democrats and point fingers... then all they say is.."wait til election" .. the waiting is what the Establishment wants you to do... they don't care about anything but dividing americans into groups so that they are eaiser to control.

Wake up americans

Well of course contraception is unnatural but what Santorum and those like him don't seem to grasp is that natural and GOOD FOR YOU are NOT synonyms. The Black Plague is natural, asteroid impacts are natural, tornadoes are natural. Pace-makers, eye-glasses and prosthetic limbs are all unnatural.

What people fail to realize is that this war on women the Republicans are waging is bad for men to. I don't know a whole lot of men who want lots and lots of kids, most men want birth control to be available, providing for a child and caring for a child is hard even if you're not the one actually giving birth to them. The percentage of men who want a submissive pregnant barefoot wife who has a meal waiting when they get home like some kinda sick 1950s fantasy is shrinking.

If the Republicans really wanted to stop abortions they would be in favor of sex education and against abstinence only education and they would definitely be in favor of birth control. Want to limit the amount of abortions and the growth in the population? Want to limit sexual violence and rape? Make birth control, sexual education, and porn, readily available to everyone. A world of sexually responsible humans who know the consequences of their actions must be a nightmare world for the republicans because they're doing all they can to fight against it.

Well, I'll have two large orders of generalization with a heavy wallop of balatant bias and for my side...I'll take a small cup of hyperbole. Hold the facts and I'm allergic to a fair examination of the ideas involved with Abortion or Family Planning.


Oh.. wait.. You have me covered for all that and then some.



I'd just note here....... Not every conservative is issued a set of talking points every Sunday evening to start the week and I seem to have been cut out of the loop for what I'm expected to parrot for Abortion. Some just flat out have MORAL objections that run as deep as anything. As silly and outlandish as that strikes some people, morals and values still DO hold deep meaning and define life for a great % of America.

There is no war on blacks

There is no war on women

There is a war on the constitution and the freedoms that ALL AMERICANS HAVE.

The THUGS that run this country also known as the Establishment government, or the PTB... use tools like the democrats or republican party, race, sex, religion to enforce the destruction of the constitution..

They will keep on keepin on until americans wake up...

Americans will not wake up

Revolution... or Destruction of America is the only outcome.

There have been something like 300 bills against family planning, abortion and birth control by republicans since 2010, it is a fact.

Republicans have always been about big business and corporations. I'd imagine that this abortion and public education in regards to it has ZERO to do with ethics, and everything to do with some other agenda.

Perhaps they want more slaves available to keep workers wages down being that there would be more workers than positions. Not hard to believe especially with Republicans always TANKING our ECONOMY every chance they get which of course brings wages down.

They are ALWAYS about big business, corporations, and BIG MONEY. Not very hard to imagine such a thing as this. Because those DEVILS have ZERO ethics, so its got to be something along these lines...

...has to be.

There is no agenda...

When it serves a purpose to blame something on blacks...they do so..

When they need to create dissent among people , they do so using various pawns.

When they need to blame education they do so.

when they need to blame whites...they do so..

There is no Agenda against any one type of " People".....

They are just smart enough to either allow things to happen, or to manufacture them happening in a way that benefits those already in power's interests.

They don't create...because they are not creative...That is how you can tell them from us......We the people are very creative...

Everything is OF creation .....To create is to be like the creator...

They lack this ability. They wait for us to create, then they manipulate it and control it in a way the benefits them.

They are very very smart. But they are very arrogant , which does not help them.

Them/they can be whoever you think they are....I have no clue...

One thing I do know is that people who have owned things and been wealthy have been for a very very very long time. And they wish to keep it that way.

Everything else is a distraction people.

Yes, there sure have been....The people who keep being defeated..over and over and over again just won't stop trying. EVER. That is what I see in your figure there, not intransigence by Republican votes. Both parties are playing this as a game for political benefit at the professional politician level anyway.

Abortion could be a fairly easy issue to deal with if people...on ALL sides...would remember the Federal isn't supposed to have anything to say on things like this. So says the 10th and yeah, it really IS that simple. If California wants Abortion legal, as I know they would....fine.

My state would likely see things differently, as well it should. We aren't every other state and they aren't us. The sooner the Feds get back to being Federal and not our entire life rolled into one ugly ball of garbage, the sooner we can let some of these issues be handled locally as they always should have been.


Until then...If we MUST err on the side of forcing one ideology or another on others who don't agree, I'll certainly feel better with the err on the side of value to life with some balance to the reality of medical emergencies and considerations. Still tho.....To the Politicians, this is not an issue they WANT solved. It's worth too much every year for political gain. These are the "gift issues" that keep on giving for them.

The only way to combat this problem is to cut off their money supply.

But they'd probably just print more...

There already is free porn, birth control and sex education and as you can see - it has minimal impact on abortion rates which remain steady. And the more that sex is hyped in every form of media, we see an ever increasing level of violent sexual assault and rape.

"Sexual responsibility" would skyrocket if infanticide was made illegal - Overnight - through abstinence, increased use of birth control and planning. We are not animals and are capable of thought.

Do people not want LESS government in their lives????

I do! I don't support the government being involved in "family planning". Why would you? Why do you want the government having any say in what you CHOSE to do with a consenting adult?

If people don't want kids, either refrain from sex or go to walmart and buy some dang condoms.

Why should the government be paying for anti-baby protection??

How about this for a concept: PERSONAL RESPONSIBLITY.

And if people can afford to buy McDonald's or cigarettes or whatever....they can buy birth control: condoms.

Im sick of the excuse that people cant afford birth control and are completely unable to refrain from having sex...so the govt (IE tax payers) need to pick up the bill. That is BULLCRAP!!

As far as women who do need hormone therapy (IE birth control) for reasons other than not getting pregnant, that is a whole different topic....


As far as schools go....I just see that is an entirely different topic to rant about.....lol

There is some idea that as soon as women joined the workforce they took jobs away from men. The traditional family of mom home with the children and dad as bread winner is the "family values" the GOP would like to enforce.

The only time you might try to assist people in meeting responsibility is when it benefits the society as a whole. If it benefits and IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE. If it tends to serve the greater good. If the sustainability of life on earth is threatened with over population and the most effective method of B/C is cheap, doesn't it just make sense to cover it? Isn't it being responsible to our grandkids and great grandkids? So down the road they are not saddled with a water and food shortage a pollution and a PEOPLE PROBLEM because we decided to breed like rabbits even though there was a simple way to make sure all children were wanted? Doesn't that make a little sense to you, them and the future?
