<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">From the party of small government, and the party of the “patient doctor relationship,” comes a new bill which places big government squarely in the middle of your patient doctor relationship.

It’s called a “wrongful birth” bill and it’s all about preventing women from having an abortion, even if it kills them. The Arizona Senate passed a bill this week that gives doctors a free pass to not inform pregnant women of prenatal problems because such information could lead to an abortion.

In other words, doctors can intentionally keep critical health information from pregnant women and can’t be sued for it. According to the Arizona Capitol Times, “the bill’s sponsor is Republican Nancy Barto of Phoenix. She says allowing the medical malpractice lawsuits endorses the idea that if a child is born with a disability, someone is to blame.” So Republicans are banning lawsuits against doctors who keep information from pregnant women so as to prevent them from choosing to have an abortion.

Pardon my french but — holy fucking $hit!

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>The word “overreach” just doesn’t quite cut it.</span>

The Republicans, who supposedly believe in limited government, are trying to legislatively manipulate your prenatal care. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>They want to legislatively nullify the Hippocratic Oath. Nullify professional ethics itself.</span>

This is similar to allowing pharmacists to refuse to provide birth control because it’s against their religious beliefs, except in this case the doctor can refuse to tell you the truth about your unborn child because of what you might do with the information. </div></div>

The lunatics have taken over the asylum. Its a good job the small Govt/Freedom Republican Party is around to help stop all this madness.

...not.

Oh boy! They just don’t know when to quit.

House Speaker John A. Boehner signaled on Thursday that House Republicans would continue the fight.

“I think it’s important for us to win this issue,” Mr. Boehner told reporters just before the Senate killed a Republican measure with a vote of 51 to 48. “The government, our government, for 220 years has respected the religious views of the American people, and for all of this time there’s been an exception for those churches and other groups to protect the religious beliefs that they believe in, and that’s being violated here.” </div></div>

Is Obama forcing them to use contraception against their will? No.

By requiring all HC insurers to offer contraception, the ACA/Obamacare will <u>reduce abortions</u>, reduce the numbers of <u>one parent families</u>, reduce <u>teenage unwanted pregnancies, reduce STDs and reduce costs.</u>
These are all things the religious right and the GOP Pres candidates have argued for.

Reporting from Atlanta—

The latest salvo in the abortion wars comes in the form of a bill in the Tennessee Legislature that would result in the online publication of the names of doctors who perform abortions, and -- according to critics of the measure -- potentially out individual women who undergo the controversial procedure.

The Life Defense Act of 2012, which is under consideration in the Tennessee House of Representatives, would direct the state Health Department to post on its website a report on every abortion, to be filled out by the facility where the procedure takes place.

The reports must include the "identification of the physician who performed the abortion and the physician's office, clinic, hospital or other facility where the abortion was performed," according to the official summary of the bill.

Chas Sisk of the Nashville Tennessean reports that abortion-rights advocates are worried that this could result in the intimidation of doctors, given violent acts against abortion providers in the past.</div></div> link (http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-tennessee-abortion-bill-20120319,0,3304370.story)

'This isn’t just about small towns and nosy neighbors. For women in Tennessee’s urban and rural areas alike, this is meant to threaten and stigmatize. To let women know known they’re being monitored and scrutinized, and choices about their bodies are no longer private. This is nothing short of reproductive McCarthyism. The sort of government intrusion that would make Big Brother proud. Whether the Tennessee legislature chooses to humiliate women in such a fashion is, of course, up to them. Whether anyone in the Republican party has courage to denounce these continued and mounting attacks against women is another.' </div></div> link (http://www.mediaite.com/tv/msnbcs-alex-wagner-on-tennessee-abortion-bill-nothing-short-of-reproductive-mccarthyism/)

Don't have an abortion or else......threats and intimidation.

And they call themselves religious!

</div></div>You have absolutely no way to prove this true. It is all your fantasy. The only thing you can be gauranteed of is for premiums to be raised. That is what happens when you add additional coverage.

Charging people a higher premium to include contraception does nothing if the contraception is not going to be used. Why do you all of a sudden think people are going to change their habits because they are now charged more for a medical insurance covering something they did not care about in the first place?
