Rosa on Roe

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro sends the following thoughts on the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion:

“Forty years ago today history was made when the Supreme Court ensured that abortion would remain a safe and legal procedure for women to consider, if and when they need it.  Unfortunately, Republicans are still insisting on interfering with what should be a decision between a woman and her doctor.  What we should be doing is working every day to reduce unintended pregnancies and keep women healthy.

 “And thanks to the Affordable Care Act, millions more women will have easier access to preventive health care services–including contraception–that will do exactly this.  Generations of American women will lead healthier lives as a result, benefiting not just these women, but their families as well.”

    Aren’t young women going to use all that free barrier contraception and the pill Rosa?

    I thought not.

    Today vaginal sex and anal sex are moral equivalents right Rosa? That whole sacral element to sex where angels cross over the threshold into the womb in religious marriage is old-fashioned marriage right?

    Congrats Rosa. You’ve really elevated the species.

    Congratulations liberals. Your wish has been granted. 50 million unborn children have been exterminated via abortion over the last 40 years. You must all be so very proud of your accomplishment.

    You are fortunate your mothers chose life as you might have joined the 50 million less fortunate.

    Rosa, you really do represent the epitome of the modern day ,vile,filthy,despicable,liberal democrat. No surprise that you believe in infanticide. With respect to your Obamacare act comment,maybe people shouldn’t just spread their legs and expect someone else to bear the tab? Some individual responsibility and accountability might be in the order, you know, akin to locking up your guns and ammo from your underage,perhaps mentally ill kid. Oh that’s right,take the guns away, but give the leg spreader more government aid for whatever : condoms,pregnancy tests,fetus termination and disposal, all under the guise of “womens healthcare”. You leftist female swine never even mention the man in the decision to abort. Of course it’s imperative that only the doctor and women make the decision.
    By the way,if Sandra Fluke can go to a high end law school,complain about not being able to afford $3k/year in contraception and expect for me and every other taxpayer to fund it, I can equally expect for Obama to pay for my monthly ammo purchases.

    I’m a woman, but sometimes I wish I wasn’t. Remarks like these are so embarrassing I want to pretend I’ve never heard of her.
