<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Pill Wars Continue: O'Reilly and Beck Tie Kathleen Sibelius to Dr. Tiller</span>



<u>This is why Fox News is different from other cable news stations.</u> They don't know when to stop or when to shut up and no two people are better examples of this than Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly. <u>It seems that Billo doesn't understand when he should shut up and not remind people of his very prominent role in the hate-stoking fires that drove Scott Roeder to murder Dr. George Tiller in cold blood.</u> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>It's well-known that Bill O'Reilly launched a jihad on Dr. Tiller and by extension, Kathleen Sibelius, as far back as 2005.</span>

Salon report in May, 2009:

But there’s no other person who bears as much responsibility for the characterization of Tiller as a savage on the loose, killing babies willy-nilly thanks to the collusion of would-be sophisticated cultural elites, a bought-and-paid-for governor and scofflaw secular journalists. Tiller’s name first appeared on “The Factor” on Feb. 25, 2005. Since then, O’Reilly and his guest hosts have brought up the doctor on 28 more episodes, including as recently as April 27 of this year. Almost invariably, Tiller is described as “Tiller the Baby Killer.”

Tiller, O’Reilly likes to say, “destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000.” He’s guilty of “Nazi stuff,” said O’Reilly on June 8, 2005; a moral equivalent to NAMBLA and al-Qaida, he suggested on March 15, 2006. “This is the kind of stuff happened in Mao’s China, Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union,” said O’Reilly on Nov. 9, 2006. </div></div>

Opinions vary, as Fox will tell us.

For instance, POTUS Obama is requiring all HC policies to include women,s reproductive HC issues and now he is <s>Satan</s> Stalin?
He wants to expand HC to ALL Americans and he is <s>Stalin</s> Satan?

See? Many differing opinions from that quarter, as they are fair. And balanced, of course.

For another example, was Obama always Satan's spawn, or was he originally good, only turned evil later in life?

1 - Can you explain how birth control is health care?

2 - Why do you think this entire reproductive righrs issue is the latest moonbat totem?

It's well known that insurance companies regard women of child-bearing age as an expensive cohort to insure. Expensive, because of the costs they have to pay when a pregnancy occurs in the insured, and the various routine checks that are medically indicated, and the delivery, doctor's expense, and hospital expense. Any group plan's census that includes women of child-bearing age will have higher premiums charged than for a group whose census doesn't include such persons.

(I have about 90 women working for my company, and these are issues that have come up in our provision of health insurance.)

Therefore, providing contraception is akin to preventative care, a far lower cost option to prevent the far greater costs of insurance paying for pregnancy. That's how contraception became part of the 'free' (no copays, or deductibles to be applied) services under Obamacare-- ALL preventative care is likewise provided the same no extra payment required status.

Stitch in time saves nine is an old expression that describes the reasoning involved.

This is now a hot topic because the GOP has turned to various social issues in the culture wars, as their previous silver-bullet Kryptonite sole issue they thought would carry them to assured victory over Obama (the bad economy) has shown signs of visibly turning around.
