Why does anyone think they have any right what so ever to force their “opinions” on abortion on anyone else, let alone forcing it into government bills or legislation? Most religious extremists base their opinions that abortion is flat out murder, (even though it isn’t and it’s a perfectly legal procedure) on religion. Well, as they say, “Opinions are just like asshole… everybody has one!”
Bart Stupak a pro-life Democrat from Michigan is threatening to kill the healthcare bill because he claims that it will provide federal dollars for abortion, and “he just can’t have that”!
Of course his claims are bullshit and have all been debunked.
What is with these nimrods and why are religious opinions of any kind, allowed to have influence of any kind on government anything? I know there are a lot of wing nuts out there that believe this is a “Christian” nation and we should all have to abide by Christian doctrines, but that is complete bullshit. Christians have no more claims to this country than Jews, Buddhists or any other religious group, regardless of what they may think or believe. And by the way, Christians are no more right about who the “true God” is (if there even is one) than anyone else is about their Gods either! The truth is all religions are totally man made, just like polyester!
The Christian “opinion” of abortion is just that, an opinion and has no bearing on the lives of anyone else. They have no more right to dictate that no one should be allowed to have one any more than the Jehovah Witnesses can say; “Our God forbids blood transfusions even in a case of life or death, so we refuse to have them and no one else can either. And the absurd thing is Jehovah Witnesses have just as much right to demand that blood transfusions not be covered in the healthcare bill as Christians have to demand abortions not be covered…. NONE.
If anyone wants to live their life by whatever flavor of religious belief strikes their fancy, then go right ahead and knock yourself out, but keep your religious agenda to yourself and out of government. If religions of any kind insist on meddling in government affairs then every one of them needs to be stripped of their tax-exempt status!
So to Stupak and every other Congressman and Senator who hold “pro-life” agendas I say, “Stuff your religious opinions up your ass and pass the fucking bill!” If you want to fight for religious agendas, get a church, be a preacher and leave government to those who understand the principals of Separation of Church and State.
