Republicans may be forced to remove a portion of their legislation that would essentially doom the bill – again.
"There is zero part of me that understands why a rapist or someone who got someone pregnant against their will, maybe incest, would have any right in that decision.”
Kasich traded one extremist, anti-choice measure for another.
Rubio readily admits that "Microcephaly is a terrible prenatal condition and it's a lifetime of difficulties. But I'm pro-life."
It's July 4th, 2016 Independence Day and we are still easily debating whether or not women are people entitled to liberty.
According to a new poll, when voters were informed about the religious Republican drive to ban access to legal abortion in the states, they were "disgusted and angry" and two-thirds of voters want Republicans stopped in their tracks.
The reality is that the purpose is to punish the federal government for not adhering to Catholic and evangelicals' religious edicts
The Reproductive Fact ACT that forces faith-based crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) to stop lying and stop posing as medical providers.
Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society admits what she opposes is "sex for recreation, sex for mere pleasure"
The GOP is opposed to providing for the general welfare of anyone but corporations, the filthy rich, and especially the extremely religious
According to the Catholic justices' ruling, the Obama Administration 'must' provide an accommodation for "religious" for-profit corporations and on Friday, President Obama did just that in response to the High Court's decision. In fact, what President Obama did was effectively neuter the Hobby Lobby ruling and ensure that all women, even those employed by 'religious corporations,' will still have birth control covered at no cost to them; even if their evangelical employers object and refuse to provide it.
What makes this decision particularly noteworthy is that the Justices agreed with a Circuit Court ruling that disabused evangelical Republicans, and theocratic governors from North Carolina and Wisconsin, of the idea that forcing women to undergo rape by medical device is not, as Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker claims, "just cool."
Kansas' religious Republicans are so intent on proving they will go to any length to protect a fetus that they passed legislation for the National Right To Life movement outlawing a medical procedure to ban abortions at 14 weeks after fertilization.
Today is the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade ruling giving women the right to choose when they give birth and, like every year for over two decades, religious fanatics will protest the landmark decision. Their contention is that patriarchs in Catholic Church, not women, own the right to make reproductive choices for American women.
Instead of introducing legislation to create jobs, or help Americans struggling in an economy created for the benefit of the rich, on the first day of the 114th Congress Republicans introduced five separate bills restricting women's reproductive rights; something they did not pledge would be at the top of their legislative agenda.
American Catholic bishops are taking advantage of the power bestowed on them by the conservative Catholics on the Supreme Court in the Hobby Lobby ruling. As is typical of the bishops, their aim is controlling American women and forcing them to either become celibate or perpetual birthing machines.
The recent appropriations bill known as the CRomnibus could have been a lot worse for women's reproductive rights and it is very fortunate for women that Democrats and President Obama succeeded in getting it passed.
Even shaky reason dictates that a robust women's electoral movement would cleanse Republican patriarchs from Congress, governorships, and state legislatures, and bring the Republican war on women to an abrupt and just end. However, that is certainly not the case and it is down to American women's greatest enemy and it is not Republican men per se, but the evangelical women electing them.
Two issues alone will have a devastating affect on any religious business or corporation's employees, but after doing a cursory reading of the Hobby Lobby et al complaint, the High Court decision will immediately affect more than just their employees.
Freedom of speech goes both ways and it is high time to give back to religious extremists what they dole out against women with impunity; and Supreme Court approval.
