    A female friend of mine posted this on Facebook this morning, and it made me think that a reminder in order.
As much as folks love to bag on men on Tumblr, it’s important to remember that there are far too many women who are perfectly cool with handing over their own and their kids rights to bodily autonomy if their pastor tells them it’s God’s will.
One other thing… weren’t these freedom-loving Christians the same folks who threatened to kill people and firebomb a mosque for the ‘sin’ of locating itself five blocks from the WTC site just a few years ago?

    US House votes to ban federal funds for abortion

    bebinn:

    breakingnews:

    The Hill: The U.S. House voted to permanently ban federal spending on abortions and block federal subsidies to Obamacare insurance plans that cover abortion, 227-188.

    Democrats said the bill is not needed because Congress continues to renew the Hyde…

    The House has found plenty of timefor superfluous legislation.  Not only was this bill unneeded (due to the annual vote on the Hyde Amendment), but they’ve repealed ACA 41 times, they’ve named more than 100 post offices, and they found time to defund ACORN for a second time… even though it’s been defunct for years now.  

    And, they got all of that absolutely useless legislation done working only four months out of the year!

    I don’t know about you guys, but part of me is very pleased to see Governor Vaginal Probe (Bob McDonnell) and his wife forced into court to answer for corruption charges.

    Funny how these holy rollers so frequently end up answering publicly for criminal activity, no?

    It’s pretty sad how easily so-called ‘pro life’ people can disassociate ‘life’ from ‘quality of life’.
Remember when these idiots were holding up Terri Schiavo as a symbol for life? (You know, before her autopsy revealed she’d lost 40% of her brain mass and would never recover?)

    Phill Kline indefinitely suspended from practicing law - KansasCity.com

    The ruling caps a 10-year political drama that began shortly after Kline became Kansas attorney general in 2003.

    Kline, as attorney general and later Johnson County district attorney, presided over investigations of the late George Tiller’s abortion clinic in Wichita and Planned Parenthood in Overland Park.

    Kline had accused Planned Parenthood and Tiller of violating state abortion law and covering for pedophiles by not reporting pregnancies of underage girls. Kline said he sought medical records of former patients to prove his case.

    The investigation of Planned Parenthood produced a 107-count criminal indictment. The case against the abortion provider was later dropped by current Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe.

    An ethics complaint against Kline, which was lodged in 2010, stemmed from complaints filed with the state by Tiller’s attorney and the forewoman of a Johnson County grand jury called to investigate Planned Parenthood. The complaint accused him misleading judges and mishandling evidence as he investigated abortion clinics.

    That took way too !@#$ing long.

    Nothing says ‘compromise’ like trying to exploit the spending crisis to make it legal for someone’s jesus-freaky employer to decide whether or not they get birth control coverage.

    Well done, compromisers. (Not that we expected anything better from Kansas.)

    take-me-back-to-wonderland-alice:

    and yet, people still hate this man.

    think about that.

    I agree completely.

    However, you guys do realize that Obama’s administration actually fought to keep emergency contraception from going over-the-counter, right? (Luckily the judiciary stepped in and told him to go !@#$ himself on that one.)

    Let’s not ignore facts that run contrary to the preferred narrative, guys. Obama’s flowery populist rhetoric, in many cases, is the complete opposite of his actions..

    After epic Lone Star filibuster, Gov. Perry calls for new special session

    rabbleprochoice:

    stfufauxminists:

    This is fucking bullshit.

    I cannot believe that this is going to happen AGAIN. Are there no protections against this sort of thing? Can’t someone argue that this is a waste of taxpayer money or SOMETHING to block it from happening AGAIN!?

    The people of Texas do not want this. 

    At what point does this stop being governmental legislation and becomes forcing people to proscribe to a sense of religious morality shared by those who govern (and is no way based on any sense of mercy or, for that matter, scientific evidence)?

    At what fucking point does this just become tyranny?

    Eh, the people of Texas elected Rick Perry and a slew of other assholes.  I think they do want this, as evidenced by their behavior.
