Excellent commentary! I think you nailed it with your last comment:
“This Congress is out to make every womb a ward of the state.”
You know, being pro-life is much more than being against abortion. Being against abortion is “easy”; being concerned for the pregnant mother and her family is more difficult, but more important than just being “against abortion”.
Thank you for your fine commentary!

Why is Jane concerned about the availability of abortion? Is she “in trouble?”

Jehovah’s Witnesses & blood transfusions is contradictory,they condemn blood but then go and use ‘fractions’,donated by thousands of Red Cross volunteers.They use 60% of the blood volume as broken down “fractions” then go on Bible thumping rants about how dangerous and sinful blood transfusions are.
As a diversion they go and trump the advantages of bloodless surgeries and try to grab the credit for it when in fact bloodless techniques were pioneered by non-JW doctors because of the shortage of blood donors (like with all the JW’s who use blood fractions but don’t donate back)
They are such hypocrites!

I think Jane’s point was to point out a religious belief practiced by the individual is fine when it involves only the individual, but it becomes a problem when it crosses over to causing potential harm to others. Danny, your post and website are your personal gripe against a group of people you seem to have a deep-seated and likely unfounded hatred for. In many ways your post and website remind me of the Moorhead woman with a vendetta against the postal carrier.

I was a Jehovah’s Witness for 33 years and they defrauded 3 generations of my family.
I am not the only one with a ‘bad’ report thousands of men women children are dead over Watchtower cult blood transfusion ban
You accuse me of “unfounded hatred” with a personal grudge?
I am a whistle-blower

Note that the legislation mentioned is sponsored by republicans. The party of “less government” wants to ally with the religious right to legislate your sex life, your marriage, and your reproductive rights.
…and forget the “cut taxes” nonsense — right now John Boehner is at the forefront of an effort to use taxpayer money to fund religious schools.
Since major religious groups (e.g., catholics, mormons) are spending millions to influence politics on these issues, maybe it’s time they paid some taxes? That would be more honest — and it might help reduce the deficit!

Is this the Mr Boehner who cries and who they call “the orange guy”? Why should the government they fund religious schools. If you do not want to go to the public school, that should be your choice. But there should be no discounts to go to any types of private schools.
