News Justice Ginsburg: Buying
Contraceptives for Others is One
of the ‘Obligations That Citizens Have’

Cybercast News Service, by Tatiana Lozano

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/1/2014 6:42:17 PM

Providing women with cost-free health-insurance coverage for contraceptives is one of the “obligations” of citizenship, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Wednesday in an interview with Yahoo’s Katie Couric.(snip) “The decision that an employer could refuse to cover contraceptives meant that women would have to take care of that for themselves or the men who cared,” Ginsburg replied. “Contraceptive protection is something that every woman must have access to to control her own destiny,” she added. “I certainly respect the belief of the Hobby Lobby owners. On the other hand, they have no constitutional

Comments:
The paragraph after the the (snip) ... first she says that now women would have to take of that for themselves. Then she says every woman must have access to control her own destiny.

How is a woman controlling her own destiny by relying on someone else to pay for her contraceptives? Paying for it herself IS controlling her own destiny.

And, the case wasn´t decided on the "free exercise of religion" clause ... but rather the ReligiousReligious Freedom Restoration Act.

Gee, Ruthie, there isn´t a single phrase in the constitution (you know, that contract the states put together to form and limit the fedgov?) that was put in there to make this an ´obligation of citizens´. If you don´t like that fact, and think it ought to be in there, then you need to convince three-quarters of the states that it would be a good amendment to the limited powers contract that is the constitution of the united states.

She´s beyond the bend with that logic but I´d still have her stay rather than give Obama a chance to nominate a Supreme Court Justice.

A woman who can´t afford a condom (or who is having sex with a man who can´t afford one) can´t afford to be having sex. And that´s her problem. Not mine. What kind of crazy world is it where I am morally obligated to prevent someone else´s pregnancy???

Ruthie, honey, when all available power is used to do "Good Things" then you have a religion .....like Islam.

Let us not confuse that with a constitutional republic.

Perhaps that lovely doilie you often wear has gotten a bit tight.

Stupid cow! Hobby Lobby´s Insurance does provide birth control for their employees (14 different types). Hobby Lobby did not want to be forced to provide pills that caused aborting a fetus. So now this Supreme Court Justice is in effect saying that Birth Control = Abortions. And that Tax payers should be obligated to pay for them. Bullpoop. If you can´t afford to have kids or don´t want them then use protection.

The most effective birth control, and the appropriate decision point, is to NOT HAVE SEX. No cost incurred, except self control.

Obligation??? Is she serious?? Why not have an obligation to buy food for others? Why is it not our obligation to buy a house for others?? Is it our obligation to wipe other people´s butts too? Come on! NO! We have NO obligation as citizens to do anything for anyone in a FREE country. And God gave me my freedom and my rights--NOT the government. NOT you, Ruth Buzzy-Bader! I think the cancer has eaten your brain, lady.

Hey, I know... I think Bader-Ginsburg has an obligation to pay all my bills and debts as a citizen of this country. Besides, she has it and I don´t. So redistribute your money, lady! Come on...I´m waiting!

Maybe she´s right. The kind of lofo sphincters who would cause a pregnancy because they didn´t save 50 cents to buy a condom would then saddle us with paying for another lofo child for the rest of his life too. Cheaper for us to buy the birth control and prevent another dim voter.

I´m really torn on this issue, it has disturbed me greatly ever since I saw her on TV spouting this nonsense:

On the one hand, Ruthie is moon bat-sh!t crazy, and should be in a home where she can´t harm herself or others.

On the other hand, I don´t want anything to happen to her until we have a different President, 0bama´s choice would be worse than Ruth, even in her current mental state.

After my article “Islamic State Atrocities: Products of Grievances’?” appeared, a reader sent me the following email, which makes similar points, specifically about Obama’s use of the word “expediency” to explain away Islamic State savageries: Dear Mr. Ibrahim, You are so correct to find Obama’s real point of view by paying close attention to his phraseology and vocabulary, something I find too few commentators take the time to do. Often one word, such as “grievances,” gives the whole show away. I read the transcript of Obama’s remarks made after the beheading of Mr. Foley — after which Obama returned to

In October 2014, the first patient on American soil infected with the Ebola virus sits in isolation in a Texas hospital, prompting calls for travel restrictions between the United States and Ebola-stricken countries. Meanwhile, four years ago, the administration of President Barack Obama moved with virtually no fanfare to abandon a comprehensive set of regulations which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had called essential to preventing international travelers from spreading deadly diseases inside the United States. The CDC had proposed the regulations in 2005 under the administration of George W. Bush, reported USA Today in 2010. The

“Asinine” is the word the New York Times is using to describe Maurice “Hank” Greenberg’s $55 billion lawsuit against the United States over the Federal Reserve’s seizure of the AIG insurance combine at the start of the Financial Crisis. “Mostly insane” is the phrase the New Republic is using to describe the same suit, which it also calls “ridiculous.” The New Yorker, which sets Mr. Greenberg down as an “old coot,” characterizes his lawsuit as an “absurdist comedy.” The critics of the case seem strangely sneering in respect of the claim made by Starr International (Mr. Greenberg’s company is the

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - At least two Colorado adults have died from complications from what may be enterovirus-68, the same strain that has afflicted hundreds, mostly children, across the country. Dr. Phil Emrie, a critical care pulmonologist at Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, says he treated adult patients who suffered from conditions similar to the virus. “We don’t know for sure that it’s the enterovirus-68, but we do know that it’s consistent with the illness that they’re seeing in children,” Emrie said. That specific virus has been diagnosed primarily in children. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has

AUSTIN -- A divided federal appeals court ruled Thursday evening to allow Texas´s tough new abortion regulations to take effect, a decision that is expected to force all but seven clinics in the state to close. The ruling from a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals at least temporarily reversed a decision by a local judge who struck down two provisions of the law as unconstitutional in August. The order signed by Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod and Jerry E. Smith found that Texas officials were likely to ultimately win their appeal in defense of

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
