Republicans Offer Contraceptive Care to Horses. Human Women? Not so Much

Yes, Republicans, led by Dan Burton of Indiana, are willing to pay for contraception for horses, but are unwilling to even let a woman testify in a hearing about contraception for women.  That is the state of the Republican Party today, that they respect horses more than they do women. 

Here in Wisconsin we are used to Republican outrages perpetrated by Scott Walker, but this is insane.  Which begs the question of whether “Republican” = “insane.”

    1. Bad news, kim. The Walker administration has cut the budget that used to deal with cognitive therapies for those such as you. As I tell my son when he poops in his underwear. . . “tough luck!”

    2. Sorry, everytime I have expressed a point of view in the past Steve Reynolds always replies with namecalling, in fact in the recent past he has called me hairlip, douchebag and idiot. I am simply trying to communicate in language he understands. I apolagize to all of the horse’s I have offended.

      1. @ Kim

        Why not be the better person, and just respond to the post. That you stooped to the level to which you claim Steven has previously stooped is not only hypocritical, it suggests that you have nothing of value to contribute to the discussion. It that really the way you want to go?

        1. Zuma, point taken, as for the posting, the only link between the contraception funding issue and the horse issue are that the Republicans are looking for ways to reduce spending. And, obviously they are both about reproduction, regarding this I would hope women have more personal control of their actions than horses lessening their need for government intervention into their birth control needs.

  1. Also, Kim, you might want to apply for Cullen Werwie’s job, since he’ll be gone soon. You have the rapier wit and wordsmith’s eye that is called for in this administration.

  2. First, the comparison of the two (horse BC and women BC) is bad. Didn’t work for me at all.

    Second, what was the point of this hearing? Did anything come of it or was it just another waste of time and money? If nothing came of it…why do we care?

  3. Can I please ask what is the problem? I don’t see a problem. Religious organizations don’t want to pay for BC so why do they have to?

  4. Also…why is BC and abortion always such an issue during elections. Abortions are legal and will always be…and sometimes I think all this drama about BC and abortions is made up for political reasons.

    1. No Anon, the “drama” about abortions is that some of us choose to face the facts in that it is the taking of innocent human life and completely reprehensible that it’s permitted. What if I said the “drama” about racism was made up for political reasons? Seriously?

      Also, it’s no so much contraception as it is the government (Obama) stepping in and violating personal and religious freedom, saying that they MUST provide a product for free.
