Anti-Abortionists: “Let’s Hear It For Obamacare! YEEAAHHH!!!”

Some people on the Far Right were against socialized medicine before they were for it.

There’s a section of the health care reform law that allows state governments to restrict abortion coverage by private insurers. This has the Salem Witch-Hunting community jumping for joy. And you thought the Right was AGAINST government meddling in the marketplace?!?

Oh well, nobody ever accused the wingtards of being decisive or consistent.

An attorney for Americans United for Life said: “We don't consider elective abortion to be health care, so we don't think it's a bad thing for fewer private insurance companies to cover it.”

And since life is sacred, these self-righteous Biblewipes will surely be watching over all of these fetuses AFTER they’re born. Right???

So far Tennessee and Arizona (of course!) have already taken advantage of the new law. In Florida, Mississippi and Missouri, lawmakers have passed these bans and they haven’t yet been signed or vetoed by the respective governors. And similar bans are being considered in Ohio, Oklahoma and Louisiana.

A lobbyist for the Family Research Council said: “You are going to see more actions like this. This is not something we are just going to let fall by the wayside.”

In a related story — well, sort of — Chinese scientists have found a practical use for discarded cigarette butts. Cigarette butts contain chemicals which are toxic enough to kill fish. And now scientists have discovered that these same chemicals can protect a kind of steel used in oil pipes. They prevent the steel from rusting.

Leave it to the Chinese — a practical use for a ubiquitous waste product that was just clogging up garbage dumps and landfills. Maybe this could be a trend.

With so many hazardous byproducts polluting the Earth, maybe somebody could find a use for these waste products.

Or These.

Maybe those "hazardous byproducts polluting the Earth" would make a good plug for an oil leak.

Yeah, well the left, by and large, has already voted for defacto death pannels via Obamacare for the old and unproductive of society so why not get rid of unwanted babies before they are born too. We wouldn't want to be burdened with these lives...

(Of course, the left will be the first ones defending murderers etc from the death penalty as a show of their consistency of ideology though.)

TP: Sheesh, you're still using that worn out "death panels!" talking point? I don't think Sarah Palin is even trotting that one out any more. I think it's time for some new soundbites.

As far as abortion vs. the death penalty: That's one issue where I part ways with my fellow liberals. I'm in favor of capital punishment. I'm consistent. My unified approach to both of those matters is -- KILL :)

T.P. Being pro choice is not all about being for murder. It is a cell in a FEMALE body, that she should have sovereign domain over. If she wants the CHOICE to terminate a pregnancy that should be her right, it is a legal procedure after all. Just because I am pro choice does not mean I am anti life.

If there could be less abortion that would be a perfect world, it is not. Oh and I am one of those liberals, that protests outside of San Quentin's gate, when the need arises just for the record. Let me have my own choice to do what I want with my own body. Till you (generic), and all other males ( who want me pregnant and barefoot), can get pregnant and make that decision, don't take it away from me and 159 million of my sisters, and partners who want the choice ok.

When I have children and I will, it will be my choice. Hubby will have input, but ultimately it is my choice to carry that child and take care of it for life. That is a HUGE responsibility, some people are just not ready to make.

Ever wonder how many fetuses Bush/Cheney killed in Iraq and Afghanistan? Or don't those Muslim fetuses count? I guess that's all OK since they're "terrorist fetuses". Your Bush/Cheney led mass slaughter tells us all we need to know about the conservative "conscience". There's your REAL death panel, my friend. Let me know when Obama's death toll comes close to theirs; not that he isn't trying with his own crusade in Afghanistan.

Hundreds of thousands of dead innocents all for a pack of lies for a war to get themselves re-elected, and to line the pockets of cronies.

There has got to be a special place in Hell for them.

BTW I'm still waiting for those Olbermann/Maddow lies to compare to Limbaugh's and Becks'...

Or how about Obama's lies compared to Bush and Cheney? C'mon, I dare ya. Remember this one? "We FOUND the weapons of mass destruction. Biological trailors."

Once again, here's my favorite RECENT one. On his May 4 program, Rush Limbaugh said: "Guess what? Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat. I wonder if this SUV had an Obama sticker on it. Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat."

And let's not be fooled; Bush was one of those progressives like Maddow, eh? There's nothing in that koolade you righties won't swallow, is there?

Until you produce, your bluff is called.

Lisa: OK, I printed your comment. Just don't get carried away with one off topic comment after another, like you tend to do.

"Surprised they aren't using those butts in Baby Formula." Actually, uh, I don't know how to tell you this...

Jess: You mean, you don't think that cell is sacred? OMG :)

The whole thing about calling anti-abortion "pro life" -- some rightwing PR wizard sure came up with a gold mine with that terminology. A person can be the biggest warmonger in the world, or be one the deadliest polluters, but if this person is anti-abortion, he/she is "pro-life." AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

Dave: I guess if a person gets killed in an unnecessary war, or an industrial accident that could have been prevented with stricter safety laws, it's all OK since this person got to be born.

And not to mention, like you were talking about, all those Muslim fetuses; they don't count. "Terrorist fetuses," LOL.

Jess & Dubya, I have a family emergency that I am in the middle of right now. I'll sit down and give my response when things have settled down and I can do justice on the topic at hand for both of you. Cheers!

T.P, no worries. Hope things go ok with your family.

Well tom, according to my Python boys only every sperm is sacred, not the cells. Just sayin is all. It is on You Tube, so it has to be true right?


The pro lifers, I quit calling them that a while ago, and call them what they actually are, ANTI CHOICE for everyone else but them. See Sarah Palin as an example. She and her daughter chose life for their offspring, after considering for a second, the possibility of abortion.

Anti choicers is what they are all the way.

TP: What Jess said. Hope everything is all right.

Jess: Great Monty Python video. I saw The Meaning of Life a long time ago but I've forgotten a lot of it.
