NOW President: Bishops assault on women’s rights will kill women

And the Bishops are teaming with Republicans to plan these eventual murders:

OneillThe collusion of House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has led to an open declaration of war on the women of this country. The bishops have long sought to enshrine into law those policies of the Catholic Church that subordinate women. And they don’t care how badly women get hurt in the process.

In the last election, the bishops helped to elect legislators that would do their bidding, which includes enacting dangerous and discriminatory bills denying women safe, accessible and affordable abortion care and family planning, even encouraging hospitals to let women die in the name of ‘life.’

A recent poll shows abortion ‘barely registers’ among voter priorities, and yet Speaker Boehner has declared barring federal funding for abortion care a ‘highest priority’ — responding not to the call of his constituents but to the demands of the bishops. And it turns out abortion isn’t the only target, as evidenced by their stunningly dangerous efforts that, if enacted, can and will result in the preventable deaths of women:

  • The proposed continuing resolution passed by the House to temporarily keep the government functioning would zero out Title X family planning, which has never covered abortion care. Should this gain traction in the Senate, millions of women, the vast majority of whom have incomes of less than $11,000 per year, will lose access to pap smears, testing for sexually transmitted infections, and contraception. It is a public health nightmare — but a dream-come-true for the Catholic bishops.
  • HR 358, which many are calling the ‘Let the Women Die Act’ not only brings back Rep. Joe Pitts’ (R-Pa.) rejected Stupak-Pitts proposition from health care reform, but also encourages providers to refuse training, performance and even referral of abortion care. This bill gives our government’s ‘blessing’ to any emergency room that would let a pregnant woman die rather than perform an abortion procedure that could save her life.
  • HR 3, also known as ‘Stupak on Steroids,’ would enshrine the Hyde Amendment into law and expand it to impose tax penalties on millions of families and businesses whose private insurance covers abortion care, thereby expanding the scope of Internal Revenue Service audits to the area between women’s legs. In testifying in favor of this bill in committee, a representative from the Catholic bishops proudly supported revoking abortion rights even in cases of rape. You read that right — and isn’t that rich, coming from the very men who have consistently protected sexually abusive priests?
  • And HR 217, which NOW has dubbed the ‘Public Health Nightmare Act,’ would permanently eliminate Title X family planning services, leaving millions of women and men stranded without essential services like birth control, cancer screenings and screenings for HIV/AIDS and STDs.

Pro-life? Hardly.

Not only are these assaults on women’s rights at odds with generally accepted medical practice and flatly unethical, there is little doubt that they will kill women.

Bishops, and Republicans, are on the threshold of murder and must be stopped.

Terry O’Neill, a Catholic herself, has spoken.

To what lengths will leftists today go to further their agenda.

This seems to be a fitting example.

    There are often unintended consequences of actions that aren’t foreseen.

    Driving women away from Planned Parenthood – making health care less accessible for women who work for relgious organizations – it’s worth having these conversations and looking at the possible unintended consequences… unless the right truly wants women to die because they are too liberal or don’t belong to the correct church.

    Satan works in mysterious ways.

      They kill their own for lack of knowledge.. Has nothing to do with the “right!” .. You work in non mysterious ways.. Just the same old tired clueless  tripe.

      Now have some more cherry and enjoy the basement..

      Will this kill more than the 40+ million that have been killed by abortion? If not then the right still has an advantage that they don’t murder millions in the name of progress. mpw

      • jim_m

         Remember also that females are preferentially aborted over males so abortion is in an absolute sense murdering millions of women unnecessarily.

      • SoBeRight

        Using legal abortion statistics as excuse to kill American women – who may not have ever had an abortion or would never think of having an abortion – just killing those women out of anger.

        Wow. Deep end plunge there, Mike.

          nice try but not one woman will die because of Republicans …

      The Gangster Government and its Goebbelsesque Fascist (formerly “mainstream”) Media mates — having mounted a direct assault on the united States’ Constitution — have Americans talking about wymyn and sex and contraception.

      Not since the Cli’ton Crime Family used the whore-Monica as a red herring to draw the CIA, FBI, Special Prosecutor and congressional impeachment teams away from its co-serial criminality, systemic treasons and predatory co-serial sexual offending, has an excuse for an “administration” so successfully diverted attention from its real agenda.

    The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds, and the pessimist fears this is true.

    Wow, that’s not over the top at all.

    “… an open declaration of war on the women of this country.”The over-the-top bullshit just gets better and better.

    If only she were so vehement about say the rights of women in Afghanistan, or Iran, or Saudia Arabia, or Yemen, or…….

    crickets.

    Hypocritical beotch.

    • herddog505

      I think that your definition of “rights” is different from this harridan’s.  I’d wager that you think that a woman has a right to not be beaten, forced into marriage, hanged for the crime of being raped, or stoned for the crime of showing an ankle.  The NOW crowd – and, sorry to say, they are SOOOOO much more enlightened than you – think that women have a right to have other people pay for their birth control and abortions.

      See the difference?

      /sarc

      Anyway, don’t expect the NOW crowd to stand up for women’s rights in other parts of the world, ESPECIALLY in Muslim countries.  For one thing, it ain’t healthy (beheading is, I believe, both rather painful and permanent).  For another, to crusade for women’s rights in that part of the world might “inflame” their opinion of us, and we can’t have that; after all, they already hate us for reasons that are totally, unquestionably our fault (like the Crusades).  Finally, pointing out that women’s rights are rather (ahem) different there than here is judgmental, and we all know that being judgmental leads to being intolerant, and we should NEVER tolerate intolerance.

    …. Terry O’Neill …. has spoken.
    …. What lengths – pun, Ms Fluke, intended – will Leftards take to further their agendas ….

    If ever a paster child was needed in support of the Truism “feminism” was invented to give ugly wymyn a role in life, then surely Mz O’Neill is that person! 

    While also likely being the definitive feminazi. (Little more Rush-n-Lingo for yah, there)

    that is one ugly lady …  

    • Olsoljer

      Well, yaaah!  NOW jumps on the bandwagon in an effort to lead us to believe they (can) get laid.  Sort of like hoping for guilt by association (they wish).  As for birth control, most truck stops have condom vending machines in male and female bathrooms for 50/75 cents.  If you don’t use them for birth control, you probably shouldn’t be messing with that poontang anyway (for the prevention of disease).
      Three thousand dollars for three years of birth control?  That’s getting laid roughly 3 times a day for three years.  Seems like she is very active making one wonder what time she has for studying and what her grades are.  Maybe she should be considering treatment for nymphomania?  If SHE is paying out that much money, there sure are some cheap assholes going to that college.

                      total sarcasm
