    Omg these idiots!

  2. I am so very tired of others telling me what to do with my body, What and why does your religion give you any right over my body? I am far beyond child bearing years. Nonetheless I will fight for all women to maintain SOVEREIGNTY over their own bodies. I live in the Great State of Ohio. What my state is doing to women’s rights is at best reprehensible.

    I can’t believe this is even still an issue (and it wasn’t for most of humankind’s history, including thousands of years of various religions and religious officials condoning abortion). It’s not a child, it’s a choice. A zygote or embryo, or even a fetus, is not a person and thus has no moral status, claims, or interests, and especially none that override that of the female (who IS a person with moral status) of which it is but a part of and her inviolable right to do with as she pleases (just as she would any other part of her body). Simple logic and ethics. Only those twisted by religion’s sick and backwards morality and unreason can’t see this…along with their embrace of religion’s long war on, and utter contempt and hatred of, women.

    (And no, I’m a guy. And no, I’ve never decided with a female to have an abortion for there was never any need thanks to BC and plain luck. But I’ve known plenty of women who have had them, from my grandma to my aunt to my cousin to friends, co-workers, girlfriends…1/4 women will have an abortion as some point: YOU know them whether you are aware of them having one or not).

    • @Michele Kett Then stop charging people who kills a pregnant woman with double homicide.

    • @David M . Ohhh! So, you’re saying there’s non Christian teachers and blowing off like that’s something more concerning than you lol. You got problems. I asked the first question and you answered it with 10 questions. Are you crazy? I just wanted some examples of Islamic teachings being taught to our children. Then I asked if it happened to me. You might actually believe the crazy stuff you’re saying.

    • It is a child’s right to live. Would you have liked to be aborted by your mother? Lucky you, she did not.

    Actually, The Supreme Court is About to Destroy it’s Respect.
    And They Are Not Above The Law Either… in Fact, they may draw the biggest protests in History.

    • @BASS NINJA And perhaps perverts like you could stop raping them.


    • @Josh Merrel Fine then men should be able to decide if they want to take care of that kid or not, my money my right! If you can make a decision to keep the kid then men also deserve a choice in whether they want the kid or not. No more gold digging whores stealing our hard earned money because having children is now a choice, your body your choice right? My money my choice.

    • They’ll kick it back to the states , which is a good call , then people can choose where they like the laws and move there

  5. Women should have a choice its their bodies not yours GOP!!!!

  6. “At least the fundamentalists haven’t tried to dilute their message. Their faith is exposed for all to see.” Richard Dawkins

    • he could have been talking about msnbc/cnn followers. It would still apply. KAG

      Well what I would do if I were for #abortion is. Next time the #religious mobs attack you. Make sure to #supeonna #GOD as a #WITNESS in your case!😁
      Let’s just prove god doesnt exist. Take their tax exempt status from their cult and move on to science.

    • Dawkins despising religion only means he created one himself..a stupid argument really..We all do wrong but, that doesn’t mean we should not care and try to be better, does it?

    • 1. Murder is defined as killing the life of an innocent human being.
      2. A fetus has genes within the human gene pool.
      3. A fetus has DNA that is unique and different from the mother.
      4. A fetus is therefore, an INDIVIDUAL HUMAN BEING.


  7. Men who are wondering why this is a big deal for women, imagine if the government is banning vasectomies even though you’ve already got too many kids to feed. It’s taking your freedom of choice away, telling you what you can’t do with your body.

      Accept birth rates are going down especially in a specific demographic… as a matter of survival some things happen even if we don’t want to admit it.

      The thing is…the zygote is someone else. It’s inside a women’s body…meaning it isn’t part of the women. Yes, women have a right to do whatever they want to their own body, my point is that the zygote isn’t part of their life support. If it dies, unlike the heart, the woman will be fine. Say zygotes are part of her body. Is Vatican City part of Italy? Are microorganisms technically part of a person’s body? No, they’re either on or in the body.

      I fully support contraception, but killing babies is wrong.

      Women also have the full capabilities of putting their baby up for adoption, if they can’t fully support him/her, something I doubt people are told they have the choice to do.

      There is also an insurmountable number of doctors turning anti-abortion…doctors, I repeat – the people that know the most about your body.

    • @Raymond Thomas Guess your wife will be happy to hear that.

  8. Republicans claim to base their stance on their religion. Problem is they lie, cheat, steal, commit adultery and violate about every other rule in that work of fiction.

    • Raging Monk: The First Amendment. The jurisprudential separation of church and state. In other words, the law is not supposed to use religion in political decisions. It is also not supposed to make laws prejudicial to a particular section of its populace; such as women. Or children. Or men. How can these morally bankrupt and shameful excuses for men and women claim to be doing anything of benefit? They need to be whipped out of office and charged with crimes against humanity.


    • @Eden Beaver ooh you know your wrong for that…. but right in so many levels. The delicious layers of sarcasm and degrading patronism covered in a sweet candy shell of false goodwill.. exquisite 👏👏👏superb good sir or madame

    Abortions will happen, legal or not. I’d rather have safe and legal abortions than wire coathangers.

  10. Excellent reporting Rachel, but it is painful to watch your factually driven shows. I find the evangelicals and those of the extreme right to be very frightening people!

    • @esj8341 “Truly entertaining” – you are one sick puppy. Would find the ‘Holocaust’ also “truly entertaining”?

    • mickey thompson | November 30, 2019 at 4:28 AM | Reply

      @esj8341 You just earned your beetroot for the day, Dmitri.

    • @pat comerford Mueller concluded Trump did not conspire with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 election therefore I am entertained by the holocaust? That is one of the strangest leaps of logic I’ve come across on Youtube ever. Congrats Pat.

    • @mickey thompson Perhaps you should save your Russia stuff for Mueller. He’s the one who found no collusion, not me.

    It is not about life, it is about control. Anyone who was really anti-abortion would be doing everything they could to help women and men avoid unwanted pregnancy.

  12. This may be a good moment to turn back to the Broidy affair, the man who was a stand-in for a trump abortion case, and got rewarded afterwards through a million $ government weapon deal

  13. What year is it again? Is it 1819 or 2019? I forget.
    This is precisely why repubicans are incapable of governing. They don’t know how to govern because they’re too busy trying to rule. And there’s a big difference between ruling and governing.
    The truth is that if men could become pregnant, there would be an abortion clinic in every gas station, auto-zone, hardware store, barbershop, and sport bar in the country.

  14. We have a POTUS with the mortality of an alley cat. 5 children by 3 different women. Never faithful to any of them. Courts need to regulate where men put their🍆. Abortion problem solved.

    • Right. Let the women remain blameless and faultless. Try not spreading your legs without birth control. Problem solved.

    • @Walt Schmidt Spoken just like a 🍆who’s not into celibacy, or condoms. How accountable are you? You play, women and children pay. So Catholic church of you.

  15. Republicans: fundamentally crooked and eager to bring their religion into government.

  16. the rich can get their abortions in san tropez

  17. Do you think republicans stand around, talking about how they can’t get things passed?

    If Row fails then all men who force themselves on females need to be killed for it, harshness for harshness

  19. if a so called president is removed from office so too should his supreme court justices be removed.

  20. Duh! We knew this was coming the minute Kavanaught was installed onto the Supreme Court.
