Why Are We Even Talking About This?


The supposed “controversy” over women’s access to birth control is really starting to irritate me.

OBVIOUSLY Medical practitioners and Hospitals, whether religiously sponsored or not, whether non-profit or not, ought to offer all their patients information about all their medical benefits, and ought to be required to make those legal benefits available to the patients if they want them. Moral judgment of the patient’s life choices has no place in the sphere of medical treatment. To suggest otherwise is medieval and bizarre.

The truth is that though the Repubs know they can’t win the birth control debate, they CAN, amazingly, get enough of their base to believe this is an important religious rights issue, to stir up pointless controversy, which accomplishes several things:

1) It shifts the entire conversation about women further to the right, making abortion seem more radical.

2) It tries to gloss over and countervail against the fact that Obama did something right and popular that most American would agree with.

And above all,

3) The furor, like all sensationalist political gambits, serves mainly as a smokescreen concealing the real Republican agenda which is, as it has been for the past century, to permit huge corporations and their wealthy leaders to continue picking the pockets of the average American at will, while raping the world economy and the environment, with impunity– and with the ultimate purpose of a few obscenely wealthy white men being allowed to rule the world, just like in the bad old days.

So my advice is not to dignify this absurd debate over access to birth control with an emotional response, but instead to pay attention to the man behind the curtain, who is surely up to no good even as we speak.

Whata… I klicked in the ad on Spoony experiment site and I was directed to THIS? OMG.. Why Am I even reading this, I’m not even American… I’m not even from the same continent! OK, but I’m interested in random stuff, lets see… Oh, “women acess to birth control” so basically most propably abortion! How fascinating. Lets see how this issue looks like currently in US, becuase in Europe – GB not including – pro-abortionists are loosing, with each new law having right to abortion more and more restricted, so they try to jump the shark with removing all other constraints like parental control of decisons made by 16 year old… (Spain). OH my, in US they are actually winning, how fasicating! How this could happen? Did developemnt of prenatal diagnostics was somehow retarded in America? Did they forgot about genetics and stuff and how this relates to human action or inaction and responsibility before law? Did scientists discover something different than those from Europe? Oh my, this can be… Oh, right, its issue of religion. And… abortion is related to religion how exactly? Never mind, I have my answer, ‘Murricans are idiots as alwyas. But we love you despite that fact!

Oh w8, there is some more… |The furor, like all sensationalist political gambits, serves mainly as a smokescreen concealing the real Republican agenda which is, as it has been for the past century, to permit huge corporations and their wealthy leaders to continue picking the pockets of the average American at will, while raping the world economy and the environment, with impunity– and with the ultimate purpose of a few obscenely wealthy white men being allowed to rule the world, just like in the bad old days.” Whata… dear lord! I’ve been sucked into part of internet that seriously believes that there are people in this world who are pondering murderous schemes right now! wheater aliens or Illuminati or ObamaMarxist Bullshit whatever something something! americ ais turlly amazing country…

I want to live there! thereofre I could laugh at people like you all day long! Here it is much more boring with all this elitists pricks as politicans, experts, plannists and stuff… You really cannot make fun out of what they are saying, becuase you would needa t least master’s degree in each field they are talking about. And still they couldn’t predict eurocrisis. Eh.

Internet is really wodnerfull. You made my day. Heh, Republicans wanting to give power to few white old guys! And democrats want what? Marxism for everyone, Gulags or somethin? Geez, you pepole sure are worth each other balls. Republicans and Democrats, each one of them stupid as bricks. How did you achieve superpower status again? Wodnerfull, just… wodnerfull. So ridicolously contradictory.

Keep it up!


I realize that my previous comment most propably won’t pass trough moderation, being a little bit offensive after all, however if it will could you make some spelling corrections? Yeah, I know, I should checked it myself before I clicked “post comment”, but you have to understand that having non-english language software on computer doesn’t help-it usually marks everything red so I cannot really see the mistakes, and I often do them… yeah, I know, I’m retard, I shouldn’t have learn any foreign language at all so I wouldn’t make any mistakes. If I bothered gramma to-just leav it for the world to laugh at.

I appreciate your help!

Oh, btw -maybe you should start using term “reproductive rights”. It is a really classy term used by left in Europe, it actually made big career here and it is now in mainstream language! It sounds so… good. Better than “birth control”. “Right” is positive, “control” is engative.

and… I’m out!
