Paul Ryan and women’s reproductive rights *************** “…on abortion and women’s health care, there isn’t much daylight between Ryan and, say, Michele Bachmann. Any Republican vice presidential candidate is going to be broadly anti-abortion, but Ryan goes much further. He believes ending a pregnancy should be illegal even when it results from rape or incest, or endangers a woman’s health. He was a cosponsor of the Sanctity of Human Life Act, a federal bill defining fertilized eggs as human beings, which, if passed, would criminalize some forms of birth control and in vitro fertilization. The National Right to Life Committee has scored his voting record 100 percent every year since he entered the House in 1999. “I’m as pro-life as a person gets,” he told the Weekly Standard’s John McCormack in 2010. “You’re not going to have a truce.” ****************** “NEW YORK (AP) — A vibrator giveaway that attracted long lines in New York City came to an abrupt end when the city told the promoters to pack it up. The Trojan condom company set up “Pleasure Carts” on Wednesday in two Manhattan neighborhoods, and were set to give away 10,000 vibrating sex toys. Nearly 300 people had lined up at each of the hot-dog-style carts.According to the New York Post the giveaway was interrupted when a city representative told the promoters to shut down because of crowds.”Times Union ************************* What does Mr. Paul’s extreme position on abortion rights and the Trojan free vibrator giveaway have to do with each other? Well, dear readers, I was just thinking that Paul should support the free giveaways as a safe method of birth control.This giveaway could, if it takes hold , reduce abortions and poverty. The latter because poverty and single mothers are directly linked. I’m going to send a tweet to PR, seeking a response. Could Biden ask PR about this at their Oct. debate?
