Women voted for birth control
Washington Times [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 11/21/2012 5:40:40 AM

Planned Parenthood is patting itself on the back over President Obama’s victory earlier this month. According to Dawn Laguens, the abortion provider’s executive vice president, women were scared away from Mitt Romney with the threat that he would take away their birth control. Other, seemingly more important issues, such as the fragile state of the economy, record joblessness among women and the foreign-policy debacle in Benghazi, Libya, took a back seat for the 56 percent of female voters who opted for Mr. Obama, intent on securing their “reproductive rights” against a purported Republican onslaught.

WOW!!! Who knew 56% of women in the USA are stupid enough to believe democrat lies???? It appears less than half of all USA women are intelligent, according to the election.

I have an idea---forced sterilization since birth control is so important to them-- think of the results: No liberal offspring by choice or accident, and the issue goes away!

2, maybe that will be the end result; abortion used as a form of birth control, and especially having several of them, does terrible things to a woman´s body.

I thought it was ludicrous when Dem operative Georgie Staphylococcus introduced this faux issue in the very beginning of that ABCNews Republican Primary Debate. I still remember the befuddled reaction of the candidates on stage as little Georgie continued to press the issue beyond all reason. I thought it was nuts. I obviously overestimated the intelligence of the electorate, especially those in need of birth control.

Barack Obama and his Chicago crew obviously correctly judged what would work with this current day electorate.

How selfish!

DOOMING ........... the economy ........... personal liberty ......... social security ............. legal immigrants waiting abroad ............. religious freedom ................ the nation´s healthcare ........... our grandchildren ........... the Constitution ........... the Future of the UNITED STATES.

All because you don´t want to pay $8 a month for birth control pills!

GOP needs to let this issue be as-is.

Take this off the table, and Dems don´t have as tight a grip on women´s vote.

After all, 50% of Catholics voted Democrat who are 100% for abortions.

Let this issue lay dormant and only answer "it´s a private matter between women, and their religious beliefs".

Takes away these targeted single-issue voters from Democrats in future elections. Take a few percentage points here and there from the Democrat column and you have dramatic changes in elections.

As a woman I hate to say this but it appears that most of the women in America are just plain stupid and ignorant. The issue was pay for your own birth control. Republicans do not want to take away your access to birth control they just don´t want to make others pay for your responsibilities.

Reproductive rights! These two words themselves oxymorons. "Reproduce", means to produce self. If to produce self is a right, then these liberals should be calling birth control and abortion as "NON REPRODUCTION RIGHTS" another the other way around.

In Japan and Russia, abortion is and has been the primary form of birth control for some time now. Both those nations are dying out. Coincidence? I don´t think so.

Agree with most of #8´s points except the part about taking away a few percentage points from the Progressives. That would only result in them knowing just how many additional votes that they would need to
´create´ in just the right battleground precincts.

The republicans,especially Romney did a lousy job defending themselves on this. I don´t know of any republicans who wanted to take birth control away. The only issue was religious conscience.Maybe federal funding of abortion.

This was never even any issue on the GOP side - the Dems brought it up, and kept hammering it, and the GOP never countered it in any meaningful way. They should have hammered back just as forcefully, esp. in the swing states. It was a Dem plot start to finish, and they executed it perfectly.

It wasn´t just women in need of birth control who voted on this issue. I know a woman 56 years old who doesn´t need birth control who voted for Obama because "Romney hates women and will destroy Planned Parenthood." This woman had never voted before, this was her first time. She said she absolutely could not stand Romney because of his views on women.

For people who actually use their little grey cells for the proper purpose of thinking, instead of skull mush, there are some pretty scary thoughts on this thread that I agree with wholeheartedly.

I have also read on various blogs that our society began its slow decline to the edge of the cliff the day women were given the vote. As a woman this also does not insult me. The New Testament says that ´captive silly women´ are one of the signs of the end times. There sure are a lot of them, aren´t there?

Agree #8. Republicans should stop discussing this. The idea that Romney would ´take away women´s birth control´ is stupid beyond words and we should stop answering questions about it.

Apparently no one cares that the White House/Obama Campaign used George Stephanopolous to introduce the questions regarding birth control. As was discussed, no state ever indicated the availability of contraceptives would be restricted.

It would have been easier to have Stephanie Cutter or Jim Messina moderate the debates just so Obama would have had more direct access to the candidates.

It is time for the Republicans to wake up and stop assisting the Democrats in setting up their agenda.

Tell Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal that the various Obama constituencies do, in fact, vote based on the free junk furnished by Obama and the Democrats. So what are the Republicans going to give these folks?

As a woman, I had the same thought, #18.

On the other hand, I can´t stand the politicians lumping all women together.

"Women" didn´t do this....LIBERALS did!

Journalists should NOT start a career interviewing colorful Ed Asner, who prefers being called Edward. Like the old pro from TV’s old Mary Tyler Moore show says: “It’s Pesach [Passover].

The righteous indignation burns a little brighter on this side of the Atlantic than it does in Europe and beyond — the United States, per Fitzgerald, “having about it still that quality of the idea.” Forged in revolution, informed by soaring sentiment, and defined by acts of variously prudent dissidence, Americans of all sorts fancy themselves to be fighting the good fight.

WASHINGTON — The case of Farrah Fawcett’s missing portrait is getting a redo. The University of Texas is appealing a Los Angeles Superior Court jury verdict from December that an iconic portrait of the late actress by Andy Warhol belongs to her on-again off-again lover, actor Ryan O’Neal. Fawcett was 62 when she died of cancer in 2009 and she bequeathed all her artwork, including her own creations, to the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied art in the1960s. O’Neal, however, took the painting from her Wilshire Boulevard condo after she died and has maintained that it was always his _

Obama program aims to reduce
‘births’ among blacks, Latinos
Daily Caller, by Vince Coglianese    Original Article

President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of “births” — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing “births” as one of the top goals of Obama’s “Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative.” The language on the CDC’s website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and “births” among minorities. Specifically, the CDC says the “purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching

Tax day is here—and some people will pay more this year because of Obamacare. The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income. Both are limited to high-income taxpayers, and both took effect for the first time in the tax season that

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
