Mike Pence brags that Donald Trump has "literally filled this White House and agencies with pro-life leaders.”

Trump signing his anti-abortion executive order
Courtesy of HuffPo:

Vice President Mike Pence declared victory for the anti-abortion movement Wednesday night, boasting that President Donald Trump has “literally filled” his administration with politicians who oppose reproductive rights. 

“Life is winning in America,” Pence said at a gala for the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List. “President Trump has been keeping his promises to stand for life. He’s literally filled this White House and agencies with pro-life leaders.” 

Pence, who led the fight against reproductive rights as a congressman and governor of Indiana, went on to list the members of what he called the anti-abortion “A-team”― Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, Housing Secretary Ben Carson, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway, who spoke at the gala before Pence. 

Also listed on his “A-team” was Charmaine Yoest, the former CEO of Americans United for Life, who is assistant secretary of health and human services, and Teresa Manning, a former lobbyist for the National Right to Life Committee who is expected to be appointed to oversee the nation’s family planning program at HHS.

Well I'm nauseous,  how is everybody else feeling?

I swear it is like a who's who of "women should not have control over their own reproduction" advocates.

If Trump gets even one more seat on the Supreme Court I think we can say goodbye to "Roe vs Wade." And hello to the return of back alley abortions. 

And remember folks these assholes only want to force you to have the baby.

Once you have birthed it don't go crying to them for the baby's health care needs, help with daycare, or improved educational opportunities for your little mistake.

Because they really don't give a shit.

    Pence in just as ugly as Trump, but in a different way. He's fucking religious and I automatically don't trust those type people. They normally don't live their Christian teachings.

    I have never believed Trump to be god fearing, much less a Christian. Read some of the things he's said in his past and more recent years. He's never asked god for forgiveness....doesn't think he needs it! Give me a fucking break! He's damn near Satan himself!

    Trump's 'prayer' day rhetoric made me want to puke. How any Americans can follow these two men (sanely!) is beyond me.

    America is a mess. Religion is going to be rammed down our throats in America and the majority of us are not Christians much less believe in their 'god'!

      Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), for example, said that people who take care of themselves and “lead good lives” deserve to pay less for their health insurance than people with preexisting conditions. And Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said that poor people would have health insurance under the Republicans’ plan if they simply made smarter decisions and didn’t spend money on “that new iPhone.”

      "On the Republican side: a phalanx of mostly white, mostly Christian, mostly men talking earnestly about liberty, freedom and unshackling business.

      On the Democratic side: a bouillabaisse of races, ethnicities and genders, significantly black, Latino and female, talking about collective responsibility, quoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and insisting that health care is a universal right."

      "House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) took as he sold the American Health Care Act to the House in the last minutes before the vote.

      There would no longer be mandates and onerous rules, McCarthy said. There would be “care without control” by government. This was a vote, he assured his colleagues, “for liberty.”

    Gryphen - can you please take down the photo of Demboski under the 'Search this Blog' column? First off, it's an old photo and she doesn't look like that anymore and she is not a woman I've ever supported. Having to see her picture every time I go on your blog (more than once a day) is irritating to say the least! Keep the written portion, but just take down her photo - PLEASE!

    No abortion, but, once you're pregnant, that's a pre-existing condition, and you've got to pay for it yourself.
    Does your child need special ed services? You're out of luck.
    Does he need regular pediatric check-ups? That's on your dime.

    Here's the good news: erectile disfunction is a pre-existing condition. So all the men in the picture above will have to start paying for their own little blue pills.

    Raw Story:
    Sarah Palin was right: There will be death panels — under Trumpcare 3.0

    ....“I don’t think people really understand how serious this is,” children’s book author Cannon Slayton told the New York Times. The 50-year-old is suffering from brain cancer. Under Trumpcare, she would lose her coverage and with it, possibly her life.

    High-risk pools were part of a plan in several states prior to Obamacare. There were so many applicants from people that theyhad to start a waiting list to get treatment. Florida had to kill their program altogether.

    “Such pools have no real purpose unless insurance companies are once again given the right to deny people coverage based on their health histories,” Florida Todaywrote in an editorial. “And doing that would once again turn sick people into second-class citizens.”

    It would ultimately put people in a desperate situation where if they are denied care they have to wait for the high-risk pool to save them....

    Not only are you on your own with childcare, etc., but if your baby has a serious condition like Jimmy Kimmel's, they would rather just have you watch it die a horrible death than have to help pay for a lifesaving surgery. But if you have a fetus with a serious condition like having it's brain developing outside of it's body, which it cannot survive, they don't want you to be able to humanely terminate that pregnancy. No, they want the woman to go through a horrific labor and delivery, to be shortly followed by a short and miserable life for a child who has no future.
    The thing is, the Republicans don't give a shit about other people's babies and children. This pro life stuff? That's actually all about punishing women for having sex.

    1. Anonymous8:44 AM

      It's all about punishing women for being able to even get pregnant, I swear all those repuglican men have uteri envy.

    2. It's their Puritan core. They are all about punishing people for their sins, of which sex is really the only one. They love suffering because it's supposed to be noble to imitate Jesus. That's why they're down with torture.

      Puritans are basically sado-masochists. They aren't happy unless everyone is miserable.

      Sorry, but with Trumpcare anyone with an addiction will be labeled with a pre-existing condition and will need to maybe be able to get help by buying insurance through the high risk pools "some" states may have. Of course they can expect to pay $5,000 or more a month for insurance.

    “Somebody’s going to pay for health coverage for the American people, and the question is how do you do that. And right now, what we’re seeing is that the current plan doesn’t work, because you’ve got 20 million individuals out there who’ve said, ‘Nonsense, I’m not even going to participate in this process.’”

    Price was referring to individuals who opted not to buy insurance under Obamacare, either paying a fee or claiming a “hardship exemption.”
    “The score has been made by CBO,” he said. “And everybody understands that the Congressional Budget Office is just looking at a narrow sliver of this entire plan.”

    Army secretary nominee Mark Green: Public healthcare stops people from being saved by Christianity

    "President Trump's pick for Army secretary once said government-assisted healthcare is an "injustice" because it hampers church-affiliated providers from converting people to Christianity.

    Mark Green, a state senator in Tennessee, told a church group in 2015 that sickness is one of the main avenues that bring people to religion, but that citizens in the United States now instead rely on the government to help them, limiting the Christian church's role."


    ""The person who's in need … they look to the government for the answer, not God, and I think in that way government has done an injustice that's even bigger than just the creation of an entitlement welfare state," Green said. "In this setting, I'll share the story, I think it interrupts the opportunity for people to come to a saving knowledge of who God is.""

  20. Anonymous8:18 AM

    If Senate Republicans respond to [the new CBO] score by shelving the bill, it will underscore how reckless and cynical their House counterparts were being by voting blind. If, on the other hand, the bill somehow clears the Senate, becomes law, and people start dying, the politicians who passed it will have to choose between claiming they didn’t know how devastating and immediate the consequences would be, or admitting that they were LYING the entire time."

  23. There is only one solution.

    Time for all women to step up and play hardball.

    What we need is a nation-wide celibacy movement. No more sex until women have full rights to their own bodies written in stone.

    If enough men aren't getting it, they'll start to realize that maybe this is their issue too.

    A year should do it. No sex for a year. No babies for a year. How many businesses would go belly up with such a drop in population growth?

    We need to stop this now before we are living The Handmaid's Tale.

      Not all women, many of us did it the first time around. This wasn't important to younger women today last fall when the voted but it's all in their corner now. I am done, I am tired, and frankly I could care fucking less at this point. I the spent time and energy I had during the election season to bring this issue to the forefront and got nothing but *crickets* from you BernieBros so maybe YOU should step the fuck up.
