Missouri House bans birth control funding

Thank God sanity is kicking in around the country. Missouri has decided it isn't in their best interest to pay for low income people to kill their children anymore.


Hat tip to Covenant News

Not that they have turned against contraception, they just have decided to stop funding it.

"If doctors want to give contraception privately or personally, they can", Phillips said. "But we don't need to pay for contraception with taxpayer funds."

There is plenty in that article which shows how little some Republicans understand what contraception is:

Rep. Bob Johnson, a Lee's Summit Republican, offered an amendment that deleted infertility treatments, but reinstated contraceptives. Most of the money, he said, would go to county health departments serving women with no alternatives to obtain health care. "If we don't allow for contraception for low-income women, we will have more unplanned pregnancies and more pregnancies ended by abortion," Johnson said. "No one here wants more abortions."

He drew support from Rep. Rob Schaaf, a St. Joseph Republican and a family doctor. Schaaf said contraceptives were a basic part of medical care and should be covered.

A "basic part of medical care"? I wonder when they'll be lining up the disabled to have them put to sleep?

The article is acnauseating nausiating. So many people in power talking about abortion and contraception as if they casual topics, not LIFE AND DEATH.

Like I always say, simply ending abortion isn't going to stop the problem of "unwanted pregnancies", primarily because people are going to have sex without understanding what the responsibilities of sex are.

So it goes

United we stand - Divided they die - Pass it on
