It Has Nothing To Do With Religion. Honest!on September 1, 2012 at 8:06 pm
It just happens to steer taxpayer money and vulnerable women to pregnancy “crisis” centers that just happen to push “God’s love” and a boatload of lies onto women who are struggling with a painful decision. But it has nothing to do with religion. Swear to God!
The latest anti-abortion bill on the dockets is the Coercive Abuse Against Mothers Prevention Act because unbeknownst to most of us, women young and old, are being forced to have abortions. Yes, they’re being clubbed into clinics at this very moment, which is why 11 states are currently considering coercion bills. As ever, the anti-choice movement argues that their policy is to protect women and that it is their overwhelming, heart-felt wish to protect women that drives their work. It has nothing to do with religion.
Of all the coercion bills South Dakota’s is the most extreme. Though the bill itself was enacted as of July, 2012, the most controversial part of the legislation is currently being challenged in the courts. If the challenge is struck down women in South Dakota will be required to submit to an interview at one of three state sanctioned pregnancy help centers to discuss the circumstances that may subject her to coercion. The counselor will inform the pregnant woman about the counseling and educational services that are available to her. She will also inform the expectant woman of assistance that is available to help her maintain her relationship with her unborn child.Pregnancy Help Centers offer free sonograms, are faith-based, and vehemently anti-choice; it is their overwhelmingly heart-felt desire to protect women that drives their work. It has nothing to do with religion.
Think the GOP would go for this if Muslims opened a similar center? HELL no! Taxpayer money can ONLY be used to push Christianity!
