Abortion funding restriction by the Government is not new. The Health Care debacle is the new language.

I hope the first district voters realize just how extreme, and unable to stand on his own two feet Mr Walz is. Sorry Timmy, Minnesota ain't San Francisco, and you will need to get a job after the 2010 elections.

ever have a "health care" bill that destroys the health of babies in the womb? At least there is some sense of reason on Capitol Hill.

Let's not forget Ellison, McCollum, Oberstar and Peterson. They voted for this idiotic bill too. They should be ashamed of themselves. They will answer someday to, dare I say, God? They may encounter some simple, but inescapable questions.

What a sad group of people we have in this country as they lie about almost every aspect of the medical debate. And you wonder why the medical mess in this country just keeps getting worse and worse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. They better realize that as long as the rich and the insurance companies make the decisions this will just continue down the path that it has been taking for years until the system breaks and we have to really confront the mess at that time.

They, and I, have no business telling women whether or not to get this medical procedure. No business whatsoever. None.

Right, nobody has to tell them whether or not to have the procedure, but the rest of us don't have to pay for it.

Jazzpants claims: "They, and I, have no business telling women whether or not to get this medical procedure. No business whatsoever. None." MMMMMM - if we are paying for their coverage, then YEA - we should have that right.....
