Would you have felt better if it was a homegrown American who raped this little girl? Because we have many of them here already.

Yeah, let's focus on that instead of how a bunch of stupid old men want to force a child to give birth.

Try not to make your agenda so transparent.

Quote:
The bill would ban non-therapeutic abortions that include "drugs or devices used to prevent the implantation of a fertilized ovum.” Birth control pills, IUD’s and other methods of birth control like that – the bill states that any birth control that could act to stop a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus is considered an abortion under this bill

The bill also speaks to coverage of ectopic or tubal pregnancies where the fertilized egg attaches outside of the womb. “Part of that treatment would be removing that embryo from the fallopian tube and reinserting it in the uterus so that is defined as not an abortion under this bill,"

It will ban insurance from covering popular methods of birth control.

Good god. The American Taliban has taken control in Ohio. Can burkas be far behind?

Hopefully SCOTUS will shoot down these laws and not give in to what the states want. Even though it's now a majority conservative Court, I know Kavanaugh and I think Gorsuch have both said they will adhere to precedent, as they should without good reason, like some injustice (like why Plessy v. Ferguson was essentially overturned).

Undoing abortion and the reasoning behind allowing it would mean undoing a lot of law coming out of the right to privacy. Be careful what you wish for.

The link doesn't work; the ellipses killed it. Here is the link to the article. That proposed bill is horrifying.

Yeeaah, right. The fault of 'bringing into being' belongs to both sides.

Ah, I see. Your only interest is in doing absolutely nothing except finger pointing.

The quote from that link seems to be an opinion.
Also from that link..
"Becker insists his bill does not target birth control."

Per the bill "Non therapeutic abortion includes drugs or devices used to prevent the implantation of fertalized ovum"

IUDs used for birth control work in two ways. 1. they prevent sperm from getting to the egg. 2. should the sperm get to the egg the IUD prevents implantation of the fertilized egg, which would mean that they would fall under that bill.

Progestin which is used in birth control thickens cervical mucus to prevent sperm from reaching the egg and prevents fertilized ovum from implanting. Which would also fall under that bill.
