These are the people who want you to die

Saturday, February 5th, 2011 · 18 Comments »

If you’re a pregnant woman, that is. You’ve probably read about the “Let Women Die” Act currently in the House; the bill would allow hospitals to simply refuse to provide emergency life-saving medical care to a pregnant woman if such care involves aborting the fetus. I was fascinated to see that the bill, which was introduced by Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Andromeda Galaxy), has 100 co-sponsors. One hundred! That’s almost one-fourth of the entire House of Representatives.

    Notice there are under 10 women? The good ole boy’s club strikes again. Goddess, I will never figure this out. I feel like I live in Neanderthal land. And, in the meantime, the sky is falling. Way to go, Repugs.

  2. lynnerkat says:

    Of course he is-I’m in TN. But, what’s up with the D’s on that list? I hope that in their next life they all are born female and poor.

  3. jen says:

    Yes, SHE is and I loathe her. Of course, by my count, 90% of the cosponsors are men.

  4. Alex says:

    Nobody from my state, thank god.

    WTF? I can’t comprehend the sort of monsters who would support this!!!

  5. votermom says:

    Is this even constitutional?

  6. Alex says:

    BTW, this is one reason out of too many that I would never vote for Michelle Bachman. I will and do vote for many women simply because they are women but there are lines I will not cross…

  7. Yas says:

    why are the democrats on this list not being asked to leave the democratic party by the so called better left. The right wingers may be behind this bill but they alone did not start it, the democrats started it with their EO because lynching women for the greater good it OK.

  8. Shakti says:

    Independent here since I was voting age.(What if any utility, would be gained by registering for either major party?) Of course, my rep is on this list, and he’s an old gas bag who takes his government health care and Medicare.

  9. Unree says:

    Do we really need both of those Michael Rogers congresscritters? They seem redundant.

    Another tidbit from the list, not that it matters: Cathy McMorris Rodgers, from the red-state eastern part of WA, has Sarah Palinish walk-the-walk anti-abortion credentials. She too got married when she was pregnant (also while serving in Congress) and is the mother of a Down Syndrome child.

  10. John says:

    Billy Long is a dip shit.

  11. Grace says:

    I wonder whether any of these criminal fanatics would be willing to apply this “Let women die Act” to either themselves (the 10 women) or their pregnant female family members. They are all a bunch of hypocrites.

  12. Cyn says:

    I googled Ann Marie Buerklethe, the NY 25 representative and found this, which I find interesting: A native of Auburn, New York, Buerkle is a registered nurse and health care attorney. She is the mother of six and grandmother of eleven.

    After graduating as a registered nurse from St. Joseph’s Hospital School of Nursing in Syracuse, New York, she worked at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City and at St. Joseph’s. She was a substitute school nurse for many years before obtaining her law degree from Syracuse University School of Law.

    She is divorced with 6 children and has worked as a Nurse, Attorney, Assistant Attorney General of New York, homemaker.

    And, she is Catholic.

  13. Cyn says:

    Not to hijack your post, Violet, but this:

    NY-25: Ann Buerkle doesn’t know taxpayers foot the bill for her government healthcare.

    Boggles the mind.

    Unfortionately my congressMAN is on the list.This is like going backwards in time. Maybe they should attach to the bill, the dude that got the woman pregnant, should take his life too

  16. audrey says:

    My Congress Representative is sadly one of the cosigners. At his town hall meeting last week-end, he stated that HE will be the voice of those unable to speak for themselves and that he believes that life begins at inception.

    Good hocus-pocus! If he believes that he will speak for those who can’t speak for themselves, then why only protection until birth? Why not until they utter their first word, as if saying “mommy or daddy” is really speaking for themselves.

    With legislation going on in individual states to make it mandatory for ultrasound, it seems that they don’t want to have funding and to make it more and more expensive for the “self-pay”.

    HR3 if passed is to pressure businesses. If they offer separate policies, then they will lose normal federal tax deductions and credits. HR358 is just an abomination to let women die, based on the conscience decision by some physicians. Always good to know that these “smaller gov’t” representatives only want big government when it further their own agenda.

    When confronted with those facts, they don’t have a real answer, just their talking point rhetoric, that women aren’t smart enough to make a wise decision. Excuse me?????
