She starts the post off singing Herman Cain's praises. Honestly what the Right Wing Wingnuts see in the guy is beyond me. They tout his 9-9-9 plan like it's
Then she gets around to the ballot initiatives. Applauds that the eminent domain and immigration initiatives passed but laments the failure of the personhood amendment. She maintains that human life begins at conception ( no scientific proof but who needs science when you have The Bible to quote from). According to Miller, this is a person
She goes on to state that the initiative would cost no money to implement, which is a bit misleading as the repercussions if the initiative had passed could have proven extremely costly to the taxpayers of Mississippi.
She then starts ranting about pro-choice people raising their legitimate concerns about the initiative, including their concerns about contraceptives being outlawed. First she claims the pro-choice people are lying and then in a rambling manner goes on to say that well yes some contraceptives would be outlawed, but hey why would anyone have a problem with that.
And then Miller starts ranting about SIN and quoting Bible Scriptures. Ironic how these people claim they aren't trying to force their religious beliefs on anyone but use those beliefs to justify this outrageous personhood initiative. I would like to believe that we have seen the end of it but considering Phil Bryant (co-chair of the Personhood Amendment) was elected Governor I am afraid that while we won the battle the War on Women is still raging in Mississippi.
If these so called Christians were serious about ending abortion they would
- Teach Comprehensive Sex Education in our public schools so young men and women will know how to prevent unwanted pregnancies and STDs.
- Require insurance companies to cover contraceptives the same way they cover other prescription medications.
- Require pharmacies to fill prescriptions for contraceptives including the morning after pill in a timely manner.
- Provide the morning after pill to any woman who is a victim of rape or incest free of charge.
- Have social programs in place to help single Mothers with housing, food and daycare.
