  1. We’ve become a nation rules by false dichotomy; a lethal swinging pendulum.

    • @Ash Roskell Trump hasn’t invaded my life at all. I now own a house and make more money and am way happier. Pro tip for you: get off social media and live your life.

    • @Ash Roskell … Your projecting your Communist fantasies…

    • That’s because alot of people are content defining themselves along simplistic party lines or ideological lines. Republicunts, Democretins, Left, Right, Progressive, Conservatives..
      Personally, I don’t subscribe to one particular ideological or political identity. I vote depending on my conscience. It could mean conservative on some issues while Progressive on others.

    • noliNagirlasia.link

    • @Ash Roskell Gee Ash, I don’t know whether to say, YES COMRADE, or Seig Heil to you. Maybe you should try moving to another country if your such a miserable POS.

  2. Why? What is wrong with IVF? How is it manslaughter?

    • @Nick Fuller We do this to organ transplant. Give the organ to the most viable candidate. Just in this case we implant the most viable embryo.

    • @macbeth moray were not gonna agree on this. You think of an embryo like an organ and I think of it as something else

    • @Nick Fuller End of the day is choosing who gets to learn be and who don’t.

    • @macbeth moray No I was agreeing with your statement “To me is like they are trying to force people to keep unwanted pregnancy and not allow people that want kids to get pregnant.” Sorry not calling you idiotic.

      @macbeth moray birth control is not a method to get rid of being pregant its away to prevent

      @J Andrews Yes. Actually, as a matter of historical interest, this was an early objection to the development of in vitro fertilisation for humans. If you define life as the moment when a viable egg is penetrated by viable sperm, then (as it was argued early on), the need to fertilise several eggs, but implant only one or two means that impregnated cells are disposed of and the ethical question raised back in the 1960s (I think it was) had to do with the disposal of ‘living’ embryos. Later, in some countries, ‘life’ was defined as the ability of a foetus to survive independent of the womb… so around 7 months onwards. In my own country, termination of pregnancy is permitted after receiving doctor’s advice, up to about 3 months, but in other countries it is permitted much later, and in some the definition of ‘life’ is the moment of birth. But that is what I expect is the substance of any objection which Barrett might feel against IVF. It’s a very old, but genuinely ethical medical question which most countries have resolved in medicine and in law. Apparently not she.

    • @J Andrews Yep. In most cases some of the implanted fertilized eggs either dont implant, or are rejected like *natural* spontaneous abortions.

      Barrett is the type of woman who thinks a religious denomination should decide who to jail when – for the same “offense”.

    • @Dani Mother of Dragons : Its not a lie. She part of a The People of Praise, a right wing extremist group, mildly affiliated with the Catholic Church.

      @Dani Mother of Dragons You may benefit from doing a little research. Just sayin’… 🙄

  4. Butbutbut didn’t trump just have foetal stem cell treatment????

  5. Funny, she is really the modern American Woman? With her men like Trump are activated .

    • That’s exactly why we need more extraordinary women like ACB in powerful positions.

    • @Diving Duck HI DUCK, …extraordinary women like Speaker Pelosi from California, extraordinary women like the daughter of John McCain from the Wild West (AZ) . E Warren is also very intelligent . And they are also able to play hardball . Able to develope the American Health System .

    Every sperm is sacred
    Every sperm is great
    If a sperm is wasted
    God gets quite irate

    MPFC – The meaning of life!

    • 100,000 sperm and Trump made it through? Here’s what you and every Pro-lifer are REALLY saying: “Pro-embryo/anti-child… Pro-soldier/ anti- vet! Your actions most definitely have spoken louder than your words. Plus, men everywhere should never ever have a say.

  7. Wow there sure are a lot of weirdos in America.

    “HANDMAID’S TAIL” Final season – coming to your country America . Aunt Lydia is in the house ….and you let it happen….

    • That criminal in the White House lost by more than 3 million votes. The system is rigged. How did we LET this happen?

  9. This country is going straight back to the Dark Ages a thousand years ago.

  10. Wow, let’s go back to the middle ages. Good luck telling other countries how to live their lives. Americas reputation is in the toilet.

    • Really? I can tell you watch only news sources like this garbage from Madcow to form your opinion of what the world thinks of us. Well, since before covid hit, I travel around the world on business and I can tell you that I met a lot more people 10 -1 that like Trump and how strong a leader he is. They think that the dems have lost their minds with the BS they’re spewing.

  11. I have two cousins who would’ve never existed if not for IVF.

    One is in college. The other is a tax paying business owner before the age of 25.

    Is Barrett REALLY the best they have to put up? Sad, if true.

    How bizarre that I know *two living breathing reasons* for why the American state was clearly intended to be a state instead of a church!

    • Great. She stated she wouldn’t use IVF. She is not ruling against IVF. I am not sure leftists know the difference.

    • Stargatis Ishtar | October 14, 2020 at 2:53 PM | Reply

      So many people have used IVF❤❤

    • @Stargatis Ishtar yes and will continue to use IVF.

    • “Is Barrett REALLY the best they have to put up? Sad, if true.” If your voting for Harris/Biden, you got no room to talk. Comparing intelligence, she’s a 1000watt light bulb to Joes 10 watt seldom on, and Cumala’s 20 watt evil glow. Dems weren’t smart enough to choose their brightest and best – Tulsi Gabbard who plunged a knife into the heart of Kamala with how she withheld evidence of an innocent man who was imprisoned and had to have a judge order her to release the evidence, who put many in jail for pot while laughing about her own smoking of weed. Yeah, that’s YOUR best???

  12. This keeps up, Ivanka won’t be able to sit on daddy’s lap no more.

  13. Americans will simply go to another country for IVF treatment, not that they should have to. The US seems to be stepping further back in time in everything with trump in office…….except making sure other countries have the weapons they need to destroy America. 911 didn’t bring the US to its knees, but trump can

    I see that a vicious excuse to rebuild and raise up all the population, passed away.
    That’s trash, keep wait for that miševent.

  15. Thanks to the GOP, we’re going back to the 1920’s on the Express line

    Has nothing to do with birth control. Want power through oppression

  17. Reps have groomed an “Aunt Lydia” for the SCOTUS –
    BIDEN / HARRIS 2020
    VOTE BLUE !!

  18. Pamela Damaris | October 14, 2020 at 9:13 AM | Reply

    Why on earth would she want to imprison women who go through fertility treatments? That doesn’t make sense. She trying to make a case for having a handmaid?

  19. America is not a democracy…..it is a bad role-model to other countries. Too many selfish, Climate change denying evil people.

  20. That “judge”is against everything after 1900 Rhights of woman etc.
    Lats say thay a judge shout be a man. That woman belongs after the sink and breading babys
