UCoB&LDD Press Release – Reject Senator Nelson’s Rancid Stupakian Amendment to HCR…

Update - Thank you, oh flock of Bitchitude faithfulness!

Senator Nelson's Amendment of Pure Rancidity has been defeated...way to get your activism on, y'all!

Find out how your Senator voted here.

Shark-Fu, the Supreme Pontifical Ruler and Head Bitch in Charge of the United Church of Bitchitude and Latter Day Drunks, urges Senators to reject Senator Nelson’s amendment to make women’s access to reproductive health care worse than it currently is.

Sadly, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is under the delusion that they are acting in a scene from the movie Elizabeth and living hundreds of years ago when public policy was held captive to the religious views of bishops and the Catholic Church. Further restrictions on access to reproductive health care are just that – restrictions that do not currently exist. Senator Nelson’s amendment singles out one area of health care (abortion services) and seeks to change what is and make women worse off after reform.

The fact that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is neck deep in this amendment points to the motivation behind it – the Nelson amendment will write religious doctrine into federal legislation, Catholic Bishops are not medical professionals and any interpretation or opinion they offer on health care legislation or amendments to health care legislation is a religious opinion, not a medically accurate or legal or valid objection to the pre-amendment funding structure. Therefore, support of the Nelson amendment equals support for writing religious doctrine into federal legislation in general and for writing Catholic doctrine into federal legislation specifically.

Since the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has managed to open the door to the introduction of religious doctrine into federal legislation, the United Church of Bitchitude and Latter Day Drunks demands our seat at the table!

We, the UCoB&LDD, remind the Senate that abortion is health care.

We remind the Senate that women vote and we are making a list and will be checking it twice come election time.

We reject the dangerous precedent of allowing the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to write amendments or influence amendments to federal legislation or regulate health care.

And we set forth this specific warning to the masses – y’all may not give a flying shit about the Nelson/Stupak amendment but you’re kidding yourselves if you think those Bishops will stop at abortion services should they find success in writing their ideology into federal legislation. At this rate, we the people will be waking up to whole new pontifical world this time next year.

Blink.

To the bitchitude faithful (wink), Take Action Now!

Because these fools need to know we're not taking one step back, yall.

Not one step back!

Moronic. Why should I have to pay taxes to kill your baby in utero, fascist? Try closing your legs or using a $.25 rubber instead.

Speaking of religion, how about you stop trying to codify your quasi-religon, junk science "climate change" into law? Or, better yet, move to some Third World country without cars and electricity, and leave the rest of us alone.

Anonymous fool...
#1 - banning folks from purchasing private insurance with abortion coverage is not the same as using federal funds to pay for a damn thing. I don't care how many freakish bishops try to spin otherwise.

#2 - Why do you people always post anonymously? I mean, every fucking time...makes a bitch think you're really just one asshole in need of meds. Rick Warren, is that you? Freak.

#3 - What the fuck does my post have to do with climate change? Jesus to Gawd, stay on topic!

#4 - Honey, my people have dibs...we've been here for over 300 years. If anyone needs to get gone, 'tis you. And on behalf of a disgusted nation, allow me to invite you to get gone as soon as possible.

Oh, but don't go to the third world, 'kay...they haven't done anything to deserve the likes of you.

Toodles!
