"Reproductive health care is a fundamental right. Any health care plan that does not cover the full range of reproductive services, including abortion, discriminates against women," said NOW President Terry O'Neill. "Once again, our representatives are giving in to the right wing by trading away women's rights. Well, I have a message for them, our reproductive rights are not theirs to give away."

 This stuff is almost better than the onion's site. If you don't understand why I bolded the text, think of who gave it up in the first place.

 

On the Health care bill, it included re-form for women to have abortions covered under the new health care plan. Abortion has the title of being highest number of surgery's done in the US. A little over a million. 

And guess who would be footing the bill:) Well actually, it will probably be my kids. So you can guess that I am against the handout policy that we have come use to. 

Speaking of handouts: Mexican Drug Gangs Diversify Into Oil

Is it the US, Pemex, or both that is giving 2.4 million dollars to Mexico for the oil that was stolen by the drug cartels then sold to refineries in the states? Shouldn't it be the drug cartels. Obviously they know who made off with the profits?

or

The death of the 'Zimdollar'

The money is no good, but people are still accepting it for services. That is hillarious. They are now using the Rand and USD. Can anybody say "Conversion Calculator Please"

I hate this "healthcare is a right" crap. It's a service provided by experts who spend years, if not decades, training and refining their skills. This type of service must be paid for. You don't have the right to live to 100, or a new knee. The founding fathers puposely made the inalienable rights abstract. You have the right that no one infringes on your health, but you don't have the rigjht to have someone else care for you.

Free abortions for everyone is a right?   Not forcing taxpayers to pay for them discriminates against women?  I'm not sure I can begin to argue with someone whose viewpoint is so radically different than mine.

If I'm not the one who screwed her, I'm not the one responsible for the consequences.

well, with abortions we'll save on the welfare money (food stamps, medicaid, housing, etc) for the unemployed singlemother and her 7 kids from 8 different Dads (4 of whom she does not even know who the father is).

The quote came from www.now.com or at least it was the now organization that I was reading up on anyway. They put some funky stuff on their site and have awesome debates with themselves about how the "men" are keeping them down.

anovice- or they keep relying on the abortion, because somebody else is footing the bill($). Either way, we are enabling. The same is true in our educational policies. Take away the free breakfast and lunches. I bet more and more kids bring in something to eat without much thought on it. There is enough of these crazy give aways already. Time to cut back, just like any smart company would do when they are running out of money. It is just common sense.

Tasty- yeah man. You got the title and the song right.

"Well I guess you gotta get it put it in you" would be the one line I think fits this post.

I was just talking about these guys yesterday and it was about how much they have changed since they started back in the day.

No need to be sorry, I was hoping somebody would put it up:)

I'm sorry but I'll have to disagree with this on so many levels. For many poor kids or kids in poverty the free lunch and breakfast programs are the only food they ever recieve.  The reason free lunch and breakfast was put in place to begin with is because studies have shown that kids who eat breakfast do better in school. Taking away the free lunch program would put children in poverty at a greater disadvantage than they already are. 

And heres the kicker:

I bet more and more kids bring in something to eat without much thought on it.

I mean seriously, how many kids you know fix their own breakfast and lunch? You can't be serious. You mention common sense in your comment but that statement right there defies common sense.

Maybe modifying the program would be a better solution. But I couldn't live with the thought of letting children starve to death because of a budget cutback.

outoffocus- i appreciate your input, but I worked at Title 1 schools in AZ and the kids that were getting the free lunches were also the kids that I would see get picked up and dropped of in Escalades. There is already welfare, food stamps, and whatever else you want to throw in the mix. I am sure the kids have cereal at the house, which is all I had when growing up. PBJ's were just the norm. I understand what you are saying and it makes sense, but the theory and free lunch is a system that is corrupt and abused.

I fixed my breakfast in the morning, even if I had eat the cereal dry. My mom made the pbj. I have seen kids in school do this. I taught for 3 years. I have also seen kids that are not poor come in and not eat anything for lunch, in fact I ate with one of my students in the cafeteria just to see what he was like out the classroom. His parents were well off, but he didn't eat, because he couldn't sit down long enough and focus on food. ADHD or just way too energetic. 

I don't want to starve Children and that wasn't the point of the comment, but thanks for the reply.

madcow,

You don't want to starve children?  You're getting soft.

I also taught for a couple of years until I realized that teaching in public schools pretty much sucks your will to live.  Why did you get out? 

I worked in a grocery in the bad part of town while in college.  It always amazed me how kids would come in and use their parents' food stamp card to buy chips, gum, soda, and crap.  If starving kids means they will eat healthier, I am for it.

Abortions are a choice not a right and in my opinion they are Murder. Unless it is to save the mothers life. Adopt the kid out but at least let it have a say in whether it gets to live.
