    God’s Will! Well if it’s God’s will that women shouldn’t get pills to stop pregnancies, then why cover pills for Erectile dysfunction? Isn’t Erectile dysfunction just God’s way of telling you ” You don’t get another turn at bat SLUGGER “

    How is it that in defense of a woman’s right to control her reproductivity, you want to take away a doctor’s/pharmacist’s rights to his religious and/or moral beliefs by forcing him to partake in practices that he believes are wrong? This bill does not deny a woman the ability to obtain birth control, morning after pills, or even abortions. It allows the physicians and pharmacists to simply say they will not be part of it.

    If a woman is seeking birth control and runs into a doctor/pharmacist who will not prescribe/fill the prescription, she has every right to seek someone else who will. Most towns have multiple places that would be more then happy to take a woman’s money and provide her with the services she is seeking. There is nothing keeping her from going to one of them.

    “This is an individual decision involving one woman and her body. If a woman does not “believe” in abortion, then she is certainly entitled to make a choice to not terminate a pregnancy via abortion. But she can only make the decision that is right for her.”

    Whether she chooses to get an abortion is HER individual choice. But the act of obtaining the birth abortion involves other people. You want to protect her individual choice by trampling on the individual rights of the doctors/nurses/pharmacists that are also part of the process.

    “They want to own and control women.”

    This has nothing to do with controlling women. It is about allowing freedom of choice for the medical professionals.

    “well I’m just not sure they have any sense of what the words “individual freedoms” or “equality” mean. And they seem to be completely ignorant of the fact that the Constitution of the United States has guaranteed individual freedom and equality to each of us.”

    This is exactly about “individual freedoms. It is about the state not being able to force medical professionals to take part in something that they feel is wrong, whether it be for religious or simply moral reasons.

    Trust me, in today’s liberal Democratic society, there will be PLENTY of doctors and pharmacists who will still respect a woman’s choice to use birth control. Heck, several people responded that they themselves would move to Kansas and open a pharmacy.

    If you don’t like your doctor’s/pharmacist’s stance on birth control/abortions, find another doctor. If he/she loses enough patients, he/she may reconsider their position, or may lose their business. And that goes for women on both sides of the issue. Find a doctor that will respect your wishes on what will and will not be done with your body.

    The next time a twister hits the great state of Kansas I hope it sucks every ignoramus including Governor Brownback out and dumps them in another country. Every woman should be outraged that this is being allowed. We must exercise our right to vote and get these S.O.B.’s out of office!

    To begin with, that photo is effective birth control. Would YOU “EF” HIM?
    Past that, the women of Kansas (and the men who love and respect those women) should boycott any pharmacy that presumes to decide morality for others.
    And the women in the lives of the legislators who passed this “law” should re-read “Lysistrata.”

      In a perfect world, I’d EF him in a heartbeat……with a backhoe.
      In an imperfect world, such as this one, I second your call to boycott the cowards who own and run the pharmacies.
      Kansas citizens, set up volunteer transport services to take people out of state to buy their contraceptives.
      For those of you women who are able, impose a nookie embargo, ASAP! Show those legislators and everyone else who thinks this treacle is praiseworthy who REALLY wears the pants in the family.
      Bloody egomaniacs.
      When can we implement George Carlin’s excellent suggestions regarding those four rectangular mid-western states?

        Oh, man, I just had a revelation….that guy has that look on his face that tells me that when he was a kid, he got held down by a bunch of bigger kids and buggered by the neighborhood german shepherd, while everyone stood around and laughed.
