  •  Those foolish old control freaks... (4+ / 0-)

    ... are forgetting their corporate donors.

    Pharmaceutical corporations who can profit from making birth control pills (or other forms of contraception), but they can't bilk women for the cost of BC pills if birth control becomes completely forbidden.  Uff da.  The politicians who back this nonsense will lose contributions from pharmaceutical corporations...!

    Squawk!  No money?!?

    What about the doctors/clinics who make money from women who (by themselves or via insurance companies or Medicaid) have to pay the doctors/clinics who prescribe birth control pills (after an alleged physical to make sure there are no adverse effects, etc., another fee).

    This "proposed legislation" must be a show for the religious reichwingnuts who love to control women's bodies, who practically salivate at the thought of that much control over women's lives.  Surely they would not forget their "friends" within the corporate world who finance their political campaigns...?

    What about the women who have children when they shouldn't and leave orphans behind when they do?  (I'll threaten to whip out the stories of my maternal grandmother's painful death after carrying a dead fetus inside of her for three months; or the death of my grandfather's sister of a heart condition within a couple of hours of the birth of her last child.  Or the death of my midwife paternal grandmother's best friend, another midwife, who died some nine months after the birth of her last child of childbed fever.  Don't make me go there.  They are horror stories, and their deaths affected several generations after their deaths.)

    Tell you what, you f'ing old control freaks:  YOU go without using birth control if that is what you choose.  Leave the rest of us who have a rational thinking process to make our own reproductive choices for what is best for our lives.

    Now, go away you old cretins...!!!

    [Damn, why is it these old control freaks want to reproduce like rabbits and they really should have been rendered sterile from birth...?  We most assuredly do not need any more "people" like them in this world.]

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
