Obama Treating Women Like Breeding Animals

This whole article and almost every comment are ridiculous. The ability to control fertility, to decide whether and when to have children, has a great impact on women's participation in the economy. It's very difficult to hold a job when you have a pregnancy every year. And yes, I recognize that abortion is controversial, but how anyone in this day and age can say contraception is controversial is beyond me. Most American Catholics don't even follow the church's teaching on contraception. And, uh, access to contraception prevents abortions because it prevents unwanted pregnancies. So it's a win for people on both sides of the abortion issue.

What's ridiculous is YOUR assertion that anyone is "threatening" any woman's "ability to control fertility."

NO, because Leftards like you NEVER consider they have to defend anything they say. Just throw it out there, that's all that's needed, right?

Give me JUST ONE EXAMPLE of any real threat by anyone running for office on the GOP ticket, to "control fertility." Just one.

You can't. Because it's a freakin' lie just like nearly everything you people spew.

Fine: let the women pay for it: women too stupid to have jobs?

There is NFP which is more reliable if done correctly and does not have the health risks that artificial birth control has. The Pill is classified as carcinogen by the WHO. Access to contraception DOES NOT lower abortion rates. It becomes the "back-up birth control". Read Abby Johnson's account of how PP knowingly gives women low-dose BC because those same women will be back for abortions.
Your statement that abortion is controversial is very sad. Do you ever think about the reality of abortion? If you support it, then face up to what it is - the taking of innocent HUMAN life. At the moment of fertilization, unique DNA is created. It has never existed before and will never exist again. If you think abortion is just a procedure,

then I challenge you to watch one. After you see a tiny child dismembered and discarded, or worse yet, used for medical research ( where do you think fetal kidney cells come from for product testing?) please say, "Yep, I'm cool with that." Watch 180 the movie for another perspective. Please don't use the rape/incest canard. The child does not need to die for the sin of the father. Killing the child will not bring about healing. Just the opposite. It will cause more pain when the full gravity hits the woman of what she has done. Adoption is the loving choice.
For Michelle Obama to stand by while her husband unashamedly promotes the killing of her future grandchild (the infamous "punished with a baby" comment) is beyond cold & callus.

You remain blissfully unaware of the fact that the President doesn't disagree with most Muslim nation's treatment of women. Obama has stronger words for Isreal and how it plans its sub-divisions. But, he never mentions the treatment of Islamic women. If forced to choose one or the other, you'd see Michelle sporting the latest burqa fashion.

NO ONE is saying "contraception is controversial".

NO ONE is trying to deny women access to contraception.

What is a greater preventative measure than contraception to unwanted pregnancies is SELF DISCIPLINE and SELF CONTROL on the part of women.

Try again Lib. Ms. Alexander "says outright" that FUNDING birth control is what's controversial and that there are legitimate arguments that can be advanced as to whether or not contraception should be used. BIG DIFFERENCE.

May I repeat what Ms. Alexander also said.....

NO ONE IS ATTEMPTING TO LIMIT ACCESS TO CONTRACEPTION. PERIOD.

Oh, and as for the men....you're right on that one Lib. What if MEN learned to face up to their responsibilities towards the women they seduce and the children they father? It seems that there are too many irresponsible, immature d-bags who treat women like nothing but sex organs.

No, she says use of contraception is controversial as well. Also, her statement about not being able to drive a couple of miles without seeing a women's clinic is flat-out inaccurate. Many rural areas have no women's clinics at all.

Once again Lib..read the ARTICLE. the USE of contraceptives is controversial in the fact that there are some people who have religious, moral or ethical sensibilities against using them. Where I live, I can find several low cost county clinics and primary care providers. As for rural areas, mail order pharmacies such as Medco will ship contraceptives there just like they do regular prescriptions. And as for those who have chosen to live in rural areas, they manage to survive the fact that the women's clinic is several minutes away just like they survive the fact that the veterinary clinic is several miles away. They deal with it.

Nobodies trying to prevent contraception. The point she's trying to make is that there already is plenty of free clinics and free contraception currently, with no plans to take that away. The root problem is the meme "War on Women" was developed to cause fear of a monster that doesn't exist.
An article earlier this year in Politico speculated that this presidential election may be the first one ever to be decided by women. The Obama campaign understands this, and has trotted out a series of ditzy female celebrities to declare their support for Obama because he is for “women’s rights.” Eva Longoria, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Ashley Judd, Scarlett Johansson and others have come out publicly with statements within the past few weeks. Longoria spoke at the Democratic National Convention, and has said, "There is an attack on women’s health care and President Obama's policies are the only ones that are...
