Rick Santorum ATE MY BABY

It was never the dingoes...

I realize the title of my post is complete bullshit.  But so is the content of that article.

This is what Sarah Fister Gale says Rick Santorum is for:

If Rick Santorum had his way, I wouldn’t have been able to get that test, and she most likely would have died. Because according to him, tests that give parents vital information about the health of their unborn children are morally wrong. Though he has no medical training, and no business commenting on the medical decisions that women and their doctors make, he argues that such tests shouldn’t be provided, or that employers at least should be allowed to opt out of paying for them on “moral grounds.”

This is what Santorum actually thinks about the subject:

"People have the right to do it, but to have the government force people to provide it free, to me, is a bit loaded," he said.
And it's not like CNN is a biased conservative source, y'all.

Shit like this is exactly why I so rarely pay attention to liberals these days.  Because they lie.  And then they lie some more.  And then they claim it's the truth, and if you point out that nothing of the sort was ever said, why, don't you know that what was said was just racist code words?

Ah, a kindred soul!

Just point them all to the CDC report that shows that 99% of U.S. women already have access to birth control.

Yeah, I'm just loving the way the libs are spinning the whole "we're going to force you to pay for our birth control" issue.

Fact is, though, if I were CEO of Blue Cross or Aetna or whoever, I'd have a ZERO co-pay on birth control pills and contraceptives.

Cheaper to prevent an unwanted pregnancy than the alternative.

The money BC/BS pays for pre-natal, delivery and post-natal care far exceeds the cost of contraceptives. Then there will be the childhood maladies, diseases, illnesses, scrapes, bruises, etc that come with growing up that will be paid by the insurer.

If someone wants children, then they know how to make them and (usually) what's involved in taking care of them.

If someone doesn't want to have children at the time, then a smart insurer waives the co-pay on birth control pills.

Pay a little now, save a lot later.

Maybe it's just one more indicator of what's wrong with our present healthcare system--we have a bunch of dumbasses in charge of our insurance companies.

I maintain the whole purpose of this attack on the church and first amendment is diversion.

Make everyone talk about birth control and not the horrible things the administration is doing.

Personally, I'd be upset if the government mandated employers provide dental floss. They have no right to mandate anything.

When did they start handing out the code books? Because I sure as hell didn't get one.

(And I'm missing so much! Apparently!)
