    We need a federal law banning anyone from making any laws about people's personal medical decisions.

    The state has NO business trying to tell people what they can do with their bodies. Period.

    The state and federal government are well within their power to address the issue of murder.

    The problem is that people without insurance often end up going to the emergency on the tax payer's dollar.

    The thread/article title is false.

    He did not say that rape won't cause pregnancy. He said "in many cases", rape won't cause pregnancy.

    What someone does with their own body is totally irrelevant to the abortion debate.

    That presents an interesting question that I'd appreciate some insight on - what is the impact of trauma on implantation? I can't imagine that it would have any impact on fertilization.

    Not sure how you would conduct a study on that, but I am curious.

    Right. Because there are ZERO communicable illnesses or maladies, so there's no public risk whatsoever when people go untreated. :rolleyes:

    So that part of that old document that reads "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" is just pointless puffery, got it... well, it was for the slaves anyway... ;)

    Yet nobody complains on how much more taxpayers spend on corporate welfare, even to companies gutting and leaving this country. In other words, it's not just double standards, but straw arguments and I'm not referring to my responses but logical conclusions derived from statements deemed immutable facts.

    But why not do your employer a favor and let them stop giving you coverage. Prices for us consumers will go down, big time....

    Oh, wait, you're not? Hmmm....

    Federal law requires providers to give care in emergency cases regardless of ability to pay or any form of reimbursement. Passing along the costs to paying patients was the only option.

    I have to ask, what is your current avatar about? Does that dog have a tree or a stalk of broccoli for a head? :D

    I'm longing for the law that stops conservative evangecal politicians or any politician from speaking from their arses. :D

    Maybe I'm being a little too hard on cauliflower. I've just always been really suspicious of it...

    ya. it is pretty blah by it's self but mix it with cheese and butter and garlic in a food processor and it is pretty good. less calories too. I mix it with eggs to make a crust for lasagna and such.

    Hmm, disguise the taste, good move. :D

    Back on topic, when a leader says something like this (topic subject) I feel the electorate has failed miserably, granted based on my standards. It dissapoints and scares me that large population swathes put their faith in such ideals. It's the origin of my pessimism about our country's future. :(

    In many of the less populous states, some of the state-level representatives don't get vetted well. I'm not sure about Idaho, but, it likely is a big step down for a good lawyer to become a state representative. You don't always get the best quality, and Pete Nielsen might have been the best they could get to run.
