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.

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.

Just hours after apologizing for using what was perceived as an anti-Semitic slur, Vice President Joe Biden deployed another term Wednesday that some might consider ethnically offensive. Speaking at a campaign finance reform rally in Iowa, Biden recalled a meeting he had with Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore. Biden described Yew as “the wisest man in the Orient.” The terms “orient” and “oriental” are considered widely outdated and offensive to Asians. Earlier in the day, Biden apologized for having recently described opportunistic bankers as “Shylocks,” a reference to a greedy Jewish money loaner in an Shakespearean play.
