Contraception Is Abortion?

I had to share something with you. Can you imagine living in a place where birth control is considered an “abortion” and health insurers won’t cover it? Where even rape victims are denied emergency contraception?

It seems unbelievable, but the Bush Administration is quietly trying to redefine “abortion” to include birth control. The Houston Chronicle says this could wipe out dozens of state laws that protect women’s reproductive freedom and protect rape victims. And this proposed “rule change” doesn’t need congressional approval.

I just signed a message to Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt, whose department is considering this rule change, telling him: “Contraception is NOT abortion.” Can you add your voice to this cause?

Anti-Choicers Are At It Again

The headline reads:

South Dakota law bans nearly all abortions

And the first two paragraphs from CNN online read:

PIERRE, South Dakota (AP) — Gov. Mike Rounds signed legislation Monday banning nearly all abortions in South Dakota, setting up a court fight aimed at challenging the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

The bill would make it a crime for doctors to perform an abortion unless the procedure was necessary to save the woman’s life. It would make no exception for cases of rape or incest.

When are these anti-choicers going to start keeping their paws and their interperatation of laws of Jesus off people’s bodies and personal choices. I am so sick and tired of religion being the center of all disturbances in this world.

Defend life, my ass. Does any Politician remember the hanger? Defend choice. Period. Good night.
