    It is an utter and complete embarassment.  It is also classist and misogynist. The Hyde Amendement, already law, prohibits federal funds to go to abortions.  This whole debate has made me absolutely sick to my stomach and embarassed for our country.  Thankfully, the Senate tends to favor paying attention to laws….and the President would never sign it.  It’s political posturing for the most part, and it’s revolting.

    Being in public health and being a woman, this made me want to get the hell out of America and move to Canada. I cannot believe that this is being taken seriously.

    It scares me to death, to be honest.  I am approaching 1 year since I graduated from college with my B.S. Ed. and I am STILL unemployed.  My husband and I want to start having children but haven’t because we’re not financially stable yet.  I’m struggling to make student loan payments and we’re on food stamps as it is.  I don’t know what we would do without affordable family planning.

    @jayce: You and me both; my jaw literally dropped when I heard. Im so so glad we take woman’s reproductive rights seriously here in Canada-and that healthcare is the way it is here.

    This whole thing is fueled by conservatives whipping themselves up into a frenzy and trying to spew lies in order to cut spending at the expense of women and the poor.  It’s disgusting.

    Luckily, the Senate tends to be a bit more level-headed, and there’s no way Obama would sign this into law.  I feel like conservatives know this, but they just want to make noise.

     

    P.S. My apologies for being from the same state as Mike Pence

    I feel so sad for Americans, honestly.  To think that personal decisions such as whether or not to have children are based on whether you can afford the medical bills is so…inhumane? Uncivilized? 

    It’s sickening to think of all that bailout money going to the banks, yet they propose $75 million in cuts to women’s health care?

    Mind-boggling.

    I would sign that petition if i was an American citizen.

    I want to be a Canadian citizen too! I was appalled when I read this. It’s always majority men who do this. I don’t know where their hearts are 🙁 I would write my congresswoman and my senators but I’m a New Yorker. I KNOW that my Brooklyn congresswoman would not VOTE for this piece of shyt…and everyone knows Charles Schumer (sp?) a ranking democrat would not let this pass the senate. But the fact that it’s passing the House makes me understand why the world laughs at America.

    It is utterly disgusting and I can’t believe more people aren’t outraged about this.

    I’m glad they are cutting it.  PP pushes ..”advocats” abortions … and I’m sick to death of my tax dollars going for things I don’t believe in.  

    under the new “universal healthcare” proposal all the things you think your loosing.. will be covered.
