    Lets all have another circle jerk and start a shytstorm instead of dealing with the real issues that confront this country, GWB and minions are now wanting to list BC pillls as abortion.

    Have heard from several DC employees from within the belt that GWB has dismantled many of our protections, not about security, during his tenure. a lot will not be recognized for years down the road.

    Set aside the fraught question of when human life begins. The new debate: When does pregnancy begin?

    The Bush Administration has ignited a furor with a proposed definition of pregnancy that has the effect of classifying some of the most widely used methods of contraception as abortion.

    A draft regulation, still being revised and debated, treats most birth-control pills and intrauterine devices as abortion because they can work by preventing fertilized eggs from implanting in the uterus. The regulation considers that destroying "the life of a human being."

    The draft regulation, circulating within the Department of Health and Human Services, would have no immediate effect on the legality of the pill or the IUD if implemented because abortion is legal. But opponents fear it would undercut dozens of state laws designed to promote easy access to these methods of birth control, used by more than 12 million women a year.

    Dozens of Congressional Democrats -- including presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama -- have signed letters of protest blistering the proposal. His Republican rival, Sen. John McCain, declined to comment.

    This is just so stupid & childish I'm wondering why 98% of congress INCLUDING the republicans aren't just laughing their ashes off over this assanine proposal.

    The birth control pill is here to stay and that won't change...nor should it.

    "Stopping a fertilized egg from entering the uterus" :rofl:

    OK neo-cons, this is the time we should be agreeing that GWB has REALLY shown why he should have been impeached long ago. If "Have heard from several DC employees from within the belt that GWB has dismantled many of our protections", is true then it's time we put together a list for all Americans to see. I have heard that he has violated presidential law something like 800 times...and that by the stupidest president in history...

    Hey, maybe GW will be having the last laugh.

    The Dems in Congress and the Senate should add a rider essentially saying "And since we're going to define the pill and IUDs as forms of abortion, the U.S., pursuant to its interest in the rights of its citizens to pursue happiness, yadda yadda yadda, shall not recognize any state law in any way restricting women's access to abortion services of any kind, as restricted by this that and the other health code so the insurance companies and MDs stay happy."
