  •  My 68 Year Old Mom (14+ / 0-)

    is voting for Obama. Always voted for a Republican. Two reasons she has changed. Birth control and all these stupid "rape" comments. My mom isn't even pro-choice, but she believes if you want to ban abortion maybe it is a good idea to offer birth control.

    I mean it is strange to have this conversation with your mom, but she had sex before she was married. She has often had sex just cause she enjoyed it and not to make a kid.

    Birth control for her is kind of important.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      women's issues - abortion being the most visible, but these same Neandertals are aiming beyond Roe directly at birth control itself - are just pieces-parts of an entire bundled 'package' of Big Government intrusions into the realm of social engineering that goes right along with "immigration reform" despite the fact that the rich and corporations are the ones who do the most hiring of undocumented workers, 'welfare reform' that removes all visible means of support from primarily black but also brown and white bottom-end citizens, etc., etc. While at the same time cutting all Big Government regulations on food, drugs, consumer goods, pollution, negligent and/or deliberate random mass murder, etc., etc.

      The overall plan is simple - Take the US back to the 18th century socially, but gift the rich with the whole 21st century military and bureaucracy to use as they see fit. Disenfranchise everyone but the rich, give the rich carte blanche and the world's biggest guns/bombs to enforce their business plans on the rest of the world. Voila! Utopia.

      goes quiet and pale on the topic of abortion. She was young during the days of back alley abortions. She said we can NEVER go back.
