You Know This is Coming, Don't You?

Mississippi Republican Gov. Tate Reeves on Sunday hedged when asked if his state would consider banning certain forms of birth control if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, only offering that it's "not what we are focused on at this time."

"And while I'm sure there will be conversations around America regarding [birth control] it's not something that we've spent a lot of time focused on," Reeves told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" when asked if his state would consider targeting intrauterine devices and Plan B -- amid some Republican calls to ban forms of birth control.

Oh, he may say they have no plans to do it, at this time, but you know, Gentle Reader, that's just bullshit.

Republicans like to bleat that they believe in freedom and the right to make one'sown choices, but that only seems to apply to measures against a lethal pandemic. Otherwise, they are just fine with inserting their version of religious morality into people's lives.

Which makes them different from the Taliban in Afghanistan only in a matter of degrees.

The God Botherers are at it again. They seem to have been riled up for some time now and are getting worse. They ignore that they are a minority and push their plan as the only way. Even now they intend to reach farther in their plans and outlaw birth control?
My first wife was a xristian. We had 2 kids in our 3 years, and she went on after me, to use abortions as birth control because birth control was "yucky"? They are hitting their own people with this, but onward they roll regardless.
How can we wake up these people to realize they cannot tell the rest of us how to live?
Maybe this latest intrusion into our lives will be enough to put their radical ideas out to pasture. Somehow I doubt it tho.

The interesting side-effect will be a number of fertility treatments and IVF procedures will likely become casualties of the war on abortion, even if the rabid anti-abortion crowd don’t realize it. The widened definition that is likely to emerge will make a number of those procedures non-viable due to legal threats.
