Proponents argued that the measure was necessary to ensure that commercial health providers -- who cover approximately one-third of the state's residents -- don't discriminate against women. "Contraceptive Equity is about fairness, preventing gender discrimination, and access to basic health care," reads a statement on the website for Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.

Go figure. None of their policies will do any good.

Ever wonder how contradictory their supposed "Values" always exposes their hypocrisy?

Here's Gomer out there, the Huckster, bashing a grown woman, for being pregnant....while Repiglicans are always working to remove women's rights to birth control, or even give the single mothers, whose husband's ran out on their responsibilities, a break on important cancer preventive medicine.

They bash women for getting abortions, and then they bash them for being pregnant, while unmarried!
They claim they are about "Family Values" then claim their flop house is a "church" a "Christian" scam to avoid paying property taxes, at their "Family Values" whore house, ah hem, ....."Church" over on C St., while using it to meet and plan their avoidance of losing a Repig, after he is caught paying off his aide's family, for banging his wife, yet he refuses to step down.

Here is Gingrich, on Meet The Press, more than anyone else in 2009, while holding NO office, a man who was caught in ethics violations, has lied to two wives, screwing overe both of them, proved himself a complete hypocrite, and Meet The Press, doesn't have the first female Speaker Of The House on the program, not even once, in that whole year. And the right calls NBC, LIBERAL????


LMAO! Everyone in Washington D.C. knows that Gregory is a rightie.

Family Values Repiglicans, giving standing Ovations, to the prostitute buying fellow Repig, when he returns, after being exposed as a "John" in the D,C, Madam's book of Clients!

When Nancy called them a culture of corruption, she had it exactly right!

Repiglicans are despicable, hypocritical people. They're on par with the Catholic Church, and their many foot tapping, closeted gays, and pedophiles, in their party.

He wasn't bashing a grown woman for being pregnant.
He was commenting on how glorifying a woman having a child out of wedlock does not send a good message to young ladies throughout the country.
Most of the social problems we face today are a result of broken families. (ie a 2 parent, mother and father type family) And while the subject of the comments is financially quite capable of providing for a child, there are hundreds or thousands of other unwed mothers who will end up depending on the government to help them raise their children.

It's amazing how you can fail to see that, but then, you will always look for a way to twist anything that anyone from the right says.

You only see what you want to see, and you always want to see something bad in everyone who doesn't wear your party's jersey.
