Violating a woman's right to chose to be a mother? GOP sponsored bills defying a women's right. Does this seems right to you?

Attention ladies: Big news on the state legislative front.
Republican lawmakers in Arizona and Wisconsin want to help you improve
your lives. Or else.

In Wisconsin, Senator Glenn Grothman wants to give single moms
an incentive to get married. Actually, it's a rather negative incentive,
for his bill declares that being an unmarried mother constitutes "child
abuse and neglect." Interestingly, Glenn has never been married, nor
raised any children. But he says his bill is necessary to counter those
diabolical liberals who "want children born out of wedlock because they
are far more likely to be dependent on the government." Thanks for that
insight, Glenn.

Now, on to Arizona, where the GOP-controlled legislature intends
to help any and all employers protect the moral purity of their female
workers – married or not. How? By letting them deny insurance coverage
for birth control pills if the women intend to use the pills for… well,
birth control. Ladies will not get the cost of their contraceptives
covered, unless they submit proof from their doctors that the pills are
necessary to treat a medical condition – NOT just for having
non-procreative sex. And, to add some puritanical oomph to the law, it
also eases the way for the state's employers to fire any woman who uses
contraceptives to – yes – avoid conception.

If that's not perverse enough for you, try this: Rep. Debbie
Lesko – the sponsor of Arizona's assault on a woman's freedom, privacy,
and dignity – says that the law is necessary to protect "our First
Amendment rights and freedom of religion." She means the right and
freedom of a boss to violate the rights and freedom of women workers
over something as purely personal as their sex lives.

Someone's been munching too much loco weed in Arizona. To keep up with the insanity, go to www.now.org.

    An attack on liberty from the GOP? Say it ain't so...
    Rebel Yell
    The year is 2012. The Republicans are hell bent on taking us back to the 1800's. Somewhere in his tiny ant brain, Congressman Glenn Grothman had conjured up that all single mothers are sluts who couldn't keep that aspirin between their legs; therefore, they are not suitable for motherhood. It has not occurred to him that 9/11 presented men and women with single parenthood. So have the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Every day accidents mean one less spouse to help rear the kids.

    The medication anyone takes is between him/her and her doctor. No one else. But Arizona is only concerned about birth control used by women. Will men have to prove they use Viagara for.... what? .. thinning hair rather than a romp in the hay? Not a chance.

    Yet the Far Right Crazies insist they have no war on women. Who are they fooling. They want them out of the boardroom and barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen. Never have there been such a herd of troglodytes as those now running their mouths in the GOP.

    immature choices to pick from and neither is correct. whether a woman becomes a mother or not, really isn't her choice. God will determine when and who become mother's. Many women who are unable to conceive, would love to. For reasons known only to God, He has determined that there is something else for them to accomplish on this earth. Oh, and btw, I am not republican.

    It isn't all about the woman. Children are people too and they need stability and fathers. I'm sick to death of female supremacy. Enough already.

    "Children are people too and they need stability and fathers."
    I agree, but these proposed bills are painting single mothers as lower than low.

    "I'm sick to death of female supremacy"
    Its not female supremacy, its about privacy. Does the govt (state, local, nat) have any business knowing the ins and outs of their sex lives?

    I hope that 2nd photo is being passed off as genuine.

    Comparing Bush to Hitler is just as bad as the Obama/Hitler, osama, sadam people. Don't sink to that level. I don't want to be associated with that.
  • Razorey... Tully 2012/03/31 21:55:18
    Actually the second picture is genuine Prescott Bush was a Nazi sympathizer look it up some time or if you wish I could post a link here.
  • Tully Razorey... 2012/03/31 22:58:59
    I know Prescott did business w/ Hitler pre-1940. That photo is obviously fake. The shadows of the faces are too different. That and Hitler is more blurry.
  • Razorey... Tully 2012/03/31 23:01:22
    Actually you are correct now that I take a close look at it.

    What else is new. The bill you mention from AZ was defeated in the Senate. My senator was one to vote against it.
  • Tully ὤTṻnde΄ӂ 2012/03/31 21:31:32
    Good to hear
  • ὤTṻnde΄ӂ Tully 2012/03/31 21:37:05
    I know. I had called my senator twice before the bill reached the Senate and expressed how I felt about the bill. I read online she was one of the repugs who voted it down. I wrote her a thank you email.

    I'm glad to see someone in the GOP with some sense.
