    That was the point I was trying to make.

    BTW: i meant to say "good quote" or "quote I agree with" instead of "good article"

    Ok, fair enough, but a couple of things I disagree with you on here. Rush may have made something that you consider offensive, but with all due respect, so what? For as many liberals that are supposedly offended by Rush's comments many more people were, and are offended at the attack on the 1st amendment by Obama. Second, there is NO attack on birth control. Let me repeat, there is NO attack on birth control, that is the meme that liberals shifted the claim to an attack on birth control when the original, and real attack on the religious rights of the Church in this country were infringed, and it became a real loser for Obama. This woman that testified before Issa's committee, was a set up in that masking attempt by demo's. The young woman is a professional activist, student, and was I believe planned to aid in pivoting the argument. We already know much about her background, and the fact that the more that comes out about this phony, is clear that it leads back to the WH.

    Are you suggesting that abortion is birth control?

    The Catholic Church (not the majority of it's members) has been publically attacking birth control which has been in the headline lately.
    The religious doctrine is opposed to the use of contraception, as for the members that disagree with that doctrine, that is between them and their Priest. I got news for ya, liberals are always lightning quick to scream 'separation of Church and State' until they want to meddle with the Church.

    Santorum even suggested that women practice birth control by putting an aspirin between their legs.
    I think you better get your facts straight....That was a supporter, NOT Santorum.


    Then when Rush called Fluke, a slut and a prostitute I think that was the so called "straw that broke the camels back".
    Selective outrage at best. This was the excuse liberals needed to push to silence a real thorn in liberal sides. Real advocates of free speech....pfft.

    Many of us felt it was a personal attack on sexually active women who use birth control.
    I understand the misinterpretation, you probably don't listen to Limbaugh on any kind of regular basis.

    Not just an attack on Fluke but on all sexually active women who use birth control.
    The argument is phony, if you truly believe this than you are being duped by your own party.

    Former Senator and Presidential candidate Santorum last fall said “Many of the Christian faith have said … contraception is O.K.,” “It’s not O.K. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”
    I consider that statement an attack on birth control.
    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    Well, this has remained here for 2.5 days now, so I take it that this story qualifies as "Breaking News" and that the "Hollywood Reporter" is considered a "main stream" news source....

    Learn something new every day... On a completely unrelated matter, bias anyone?

    Wrong. Clinton and Palin are both politicians and public figures. Fluke is a college student who was asked to testify in front of Congress. Yes, there is a HUGE difference.

    And the courts will decide. Me thinks Rush will pay through the nose for this.

    No , abortion is NOT birth control and I feel it should not be used as birth control.

    Many women do get exams, birth control pills and help with family planning from planned parenthood centers.
    A friend of mine recently died from brest cancer. Her daughter had a lump in her breast and had no health insurance. My friend's daughter was able to get a breast exam and a biopsy at no cost to her because of planned parenthood.

    Why don't we all stop pretending that Miss Fluke is merely a college student.

    Because at the time of Rush's pie hole diarrhea that's precisely what she was. Spin it any way you like. The courts will ultimately decide. And from what I am seeing, Fluke has a very good case.

    No, she wasn't. Prior to her going to Georgetown, she was a political activist for women's rights.
