Q: HOW do you reduce ABORTIONS in the U.S.? – A: Obamacare

Q: Is birth control covered by these new public plans?

A: It’s better than that—since 2012, all health insurance has been mandated to cover all the costs of birth control. So not only do the new public plans cover the cost of birth control, anyone with private insurance shouldn’t be shelling out a co-pay for birth control, either. Yay!

The only plans that do not currently cover birth control without co-pays are “grandfathered” plans: plans created before March 2010 (when the President signed the healthcare law) that haven’t made significant changes yet. Fortunately, these plans are required to make changes soon and eventually the distinction between the two plans will disappear.

Q: What kind of birth control is covered?

A: All of the kinds! Health insurance covers the cost of all of the different kinds of FDA-approved birth control and sterilization procedures, including long-term options like like IUDs and implants. This is great news because long-term birth control options are incredibly effective but the high upfront cost can keep them from being accessible to everyone. However, some insurance companies will not pay for the brand-name version of a birth control method if there is a generic version offered.

TEXAS – Abortion Restrictions Declared Unconstitutional By Federal Judge

Via: Huffington Post

New abortion restrictions passed by the Texas Legislature are unconstitutional and will not take effect as scheduled on Tuesday, a federal judge has ruled.

District Judge Lee Yeakel wrote Monday that the regulations violated the rights of abortion doctors to do what they think is best for their patients and would unreasonably restrict a woman’s access to abortion clinics.

So Texas/Perry (See Photo), you don’t like the U.S. Constitution, huh?

Well then do us all a favor, and secede.

Texas First Lady (See Photo) Calls Abortion ‘A Woman’s Right’

Via: Think Progress

1,gif

Texas first lady Anita Perry told an interviewer on Saturday that she thinks abortion is “a woman’s right.”

Perry’s husband, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) (See Photo), has helped push through a slew of laws restricting and eroding access to abortion in the state. He is on record deriding the idea that the right to privacy extends to abortion, has signed a pledge urging opposition to abortion “without exception and without compromise,” and explicitly stated that his goal is to make abortion in Texas “a thing of the past.”

(Thankully, Rick Perry will soon be “a thing of the past’)

(1 of 2) Trent Franks (R-AZ) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

1

Via: Huffington Post

During a House Judiciary hearing on his abortion bill Wednesday, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) said that he opposes an exemption for rape victims because “the incidence of rape resulting in pregancy are very low.”

The Arizona Republican’s comments echo those made last year by former Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), who notoriously claimed that women cannot become pregnant from “legitimate rape.”

~

Like Akin’s, Franks’s claim is not supported by research. Medical experts agree that rape does not lower the incidence of pregnancy, and one study by the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology found that . . .

MORE THAN 30,000 pregnancies result from rape in the United States each year.

Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Huffington Post

Since mass shootings in places like Aurora and Newtown, lawmakers have been searching for answers for how to stop future massacres, examining issues like gun control and mental health.

But in a speech this month, Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) pointed to different culprits: the legalization of abortion and a demise in religious values.

Cathrynn Brown (R-NM) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

1

Via: Think Progress

Should a recently introduced bill in New Mexico become law, RAPE VICTIMS will be required to carry their pregnancies to term during their sexual assault trials or face charges of “TAMPERING with EVIDENCE.”

Under HB 206, if a woman ended her pregnancy after being raped, both she and her doctor would be charged with a felony punishable by up to 3 years in state prison:

Tampering with evidence shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion, or compelling or coercing another to obtain an abortion, of a fetus that is the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime.

Sexual assault trials are infamously grueling for survivors, who are often subjected to character assassination and other attempts to discredit their accounts. State Rep. Cathrynn Brown’s (R) bill would add the forced choice between prison or an unwanted pregnancy to these proceedings.

‘Dick’ Mourdock – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Huffington Post

Indiana GOP U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock declared Tuesday night he opposes aborting pregnancies conceived in rape because “it is something that God intended to happen.”

Debating Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) in their final Senate race showdown, a questioner asked them and Libertarian candidate Andrew Horning to explain their views on abortion.

All three said they were anti-abortion. But Mourdock went the further, putting himself in territory near Missouri GOP Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin, the anti-abortion congressman who infamously asserted that women don’t get pregnant from “legitimate rape.”

“The only exception I have to have an abortion is in the case of the life of the mother,” said Mourdock, the Tea Party-backed state treasurer. “I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God. I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

personal thought:

If the people of Indiana heard an iman from Afghanistan or Pakistan say, ‘{RAPE) is something that God intended to happen’, they would be outraged.

But from the ‘Dick’, maybe not.

‘North Dakota Senate Candidate Voted To Make Abortion In Case Of Rape, Incest Carry LIFE SENTENCE’

Rick Berg, North Dakota’s at-large congressman and a candidate for Senate, voted to criminalize abortion in the state as a Class AA felony, including in the case of rape or abortion.

Berg, who is running against former Democratic Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp, voted with a minority of the state house in 2007 to make terminating a pregnancy illegal, in a bill that only made exception for when the life of the mother is endangered.

Berg was granted a coveted speaking slot at the Republican National Convention last week, just weeks after fellow Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin drew bipartisan outrage for outrageously claiming that pregnancies don’t occur in cases of “legitimate rape.”

Bubba Carpenter (R-MS) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Think Progress

Mississippi state Rep. Bubba Carpenter (R) said that it’s OK for women to have coat hanger abortions because it’s for a greater good.

A video obtained by Rachel Maddow’s blog captures Carpenter saying he is proud of Mississippi’s attempts to outlaw abortion outright, despite the fact that the Supreme Court has ruled abortions legal in the United States.

And what about women who will perform self-induced abortions because they cannot afford to go out of state to get the procedure? “Hey,” he says, “you have to have moral values”.

Karen SANTORUM Attacked For Relationship With ABORTION DOCTOR

Via: Huffington Post

An unknown group put flyers on cars outside an anti-abortion event here on Wednesday, attacking Karen Santorum, wife of the former senator, for her alleged relationship with an abortion doctor in the 1980s.

“Did you know Rick Santorum’s wife, Karen, had a SIX-YEAR affair with an ABORTIONIST named Tom Allen?” anti-abortion activist Elizabeth Reichert writes in the letter. “This abortion doctor was 30 years her senior! In fact, he delivered her as a baby! The only reason they broke up was that Karen wanted kids — while Tom was busy killing them.”

Rick Santorum’s wife of two decades is drawing fire for her past, with multiple sources reporting that she lived with OB-GYN doctor Tom Allen, confirmed by the man himself.
