    Top 10 Shocking Attacks from the GOP War on Women

    1) Republicans not only want to reduce women's access to abortion care, they're actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven't.

    2) A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to "accuser." But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain "victims."

    3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (Yep, for real.)

    4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids. 

    5) In Congress, Republicans have proposed a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life.

    6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids' preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working.

    7) And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool.

    8) Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.

    9) Congress voted yesterday on a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country.

    10) And if that wasn't enough, Republicans are pushing to eliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program. (For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses. You can't make this stuff up).

    You lie. Oops, I means the spam you cutandpasted is full of lies.

    "3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (Yep, for real.)"

    Nope, not for real.The law related to causing deliberate harm to a fetus, i.e., assaulting the mother with intent to kill the unborn child.
    The language of the law provides exceptions for legal activities such as abortion.

    1) "Reduce women's access to abortion"
    Meaning forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions on demand.
    You mean actually enforcing the longstanding Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funding for abortions?

    "4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids"

    Translation: Trillions in debt, GOP dares to consider trimming the six figure incomes and  free pensions of the public sector layabout employees. Dem response: the usual hyperbole , it is all about "the children".

    Bobin:  The Republicans (at the federal and state levels) are trying to to force private insurers not to provide abortion coverage.  That goes far beyond the Hyde Amendment (itself an afront to women's rights).  It also makes an absolute mockery of the conservative complaint of the Democrats using government to take over healthcare and seeking to ration of services.

    Forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions is "an affront to women's rights"?

    Really?
    So there is a right to a free abortion on demand; and those who consider it murder of an unborn child are forced to pay for it?

    It seems the country is pretty evenly divided on this issue.

    How is the Hyde Amendment an affront to women's rights? 

    As far as access to abortions, the government has no business getting involved with private decisons made between a woman and her physician...and some think that should include any type of funding.

    The government is not going to force a private insurance company to not provide coverage.  I think you mean the GOP is looking to eliminate the tax deductions for private health coverage that include abortion.  Do you know how much of a deduction private health insurance represents?

    Actually under current legal theory the exemption may not count if a state or county board regulateing doctors determines that the procedure was not in the interest of the fetus. There has never been a payment for abortion on "demand" That is a legal term and has nothing to do with doctors and patients deciding the best intrest of the patient. There is no law that "forces Taxpayers" to pay for abortions. Any more so than paying to lay waste the homes of innocent bystanders of mistaken targets in Iraq or Afganistan. As a taxpayer the government did not send me a form saying would you prevent us from spending your money to kill whoever we like just because a teenage kid wants to call in an air strike. The hyde amendment only prohibits federal dollars for an abortion procedure itself, not consult, or prescription meds, or normal care.
    The tea baggers never seem to critisize the wasteful military spending just the ones for grandmas and mamas. HMM. The military 'private" contractors sit on their (bo.com edit)'butt' and get 7 figure salaries. Does not bother the tea bag morons.
    Oh by the way most public sector employees pay close to %10 of their salary for retirement. Social security folks pay %6.5. Most of the trillions are from federal contributions to prevent state unemployment funds from going bust. And additional payments to keep medicare from folding at the state level since the states have to pay half of those benefits.

    There is a constitutional right to abortion where the fetus is not viable, and where the mother's health is in danger, etc. 

    So what gives you and your ilk the right to use governmnet to force private insurers not to cover a procedure for those who think it isn't murder? 

    Oh I get it.  The amoral and unprincipled Bobin only has a problem with government power when he disagrees with the policy enforced.  If he supports the policy, it doesn't matter what government does to satisfy his ends.

    As many times as the opponents to medical care for women say it does not make it so. There is no requirement for folks who oppose abortion to pay for abortion from their taxes. There is also no law that says the pentagon has to ask taxpayers before they blow the life out of a hundred innocent civilians on a teenagers say so. So Bob why is one life so much more important than another ? Are you a BIGOT? Or just really confused about the fact that more people die from conflict and crime. It is not nice to have an abortion, the vast majority of women who have used this procedure did not want to be in the medical situation they were in. But because you are a moralistic a"bomb" you refuse to belive that their situation is important medically. Hey in this world Bob being pregnant still kills women even in the united states of no insurance.
