Sunday, June 09, 2024

Two republicans senators joined with Democrats to support a bill to guarantee access to "any drug, device, or biological product intended for use in the prevention of pregnancy" but it was not enough to overcome the 60 vote threshold required to overcome a filibuster in the US Senate. The voted ended up 51 yeas to 39 nays and 10 Senators not voting.

GOP senators Collins and Murkowski joined with Dems. Leader Schumer voted for the bill but then switched his vote to a Nay as a procedural move that allows him to bring it to a vote again. Bob Menendez, who should resign, was absent due to attending his criminal trial.

The vote occurred two weeks after Donald Trump was asked if he supported any restrictions on access to contraception and replied that his campaign is working on crafting a policy on restrictions.

I'm not batting a thousand on this topic, (aka actually batting 0) but let remind everyone here again that no serious member of the GOP wants to criminalize abortion or block access to contraception

And I know everything and if you say otherwise it's because no one likes you

naturally you prix are hyperventilating over half the story.

"A Democrat-backed bill aimed at enshrining the right to contraception into federal law infringes on parental rights and religious freedom, according to a letter signed by 22 Senate Republicans including Utah Sens. Mitt Romney and Mike Lee."

and it will...which is the point in the first place for despicable democrat trash.

infringes on parental rights and religious freedom...
and it will

And how so? That's the same garbage excuse the GOP uses for everything and it's absolute trash that they can never explain.

Does the right to bear arms infringe on my religious rights if my religion forbids me from having one? Does it force me to buy a gun for my kid even if I don't want them to have one?

Watch state's rights go right out the window if the GOP gets a majority in both houses, let alone majorities and the WH.

Should Republicans or the Supreme Court strip people of their rights to contraception like some in the the Missouri state legislature has been trying to do for a few years I'm sure the same people who try to blame Democrats for not protecting abortion rights will be blaming democrats for not protecting contraceptive rights.

Imagine the uproar when they remove the rubber machines from the truck stop restrooms.

I think your 'religious rights'
interfere in the lives of countless
women to decide what to do with their
own bodies and in matters of when to
decide to start a family, if ever...

Stop foisting your antiquated religious
Hoo Haa on women and others in society.

If you want to do it in your church,
that's fine. But stop trying to legislate
YOUR version of morality upon the rest of us.

Sincerely, the non-Jesufied American Public...

Of course STD doesn't come back to answer my questions. That is because there is no justification for the garbage they spew.
