    It is embarrassing that a person, unfortunately a clearly ignorant--I hate to say it--woman can get elected to a position of such national power in our country. I Thought Wisconson was better than this.

    and I Quote: "Congress SHALL MAKE NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion..." This means quite clearly that Congress MAY NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES pass a law which speaks about (respecting) religion. There are two reasons for this mandate. One is that they had come from a place where a particular religion was REQUIRED for all practical purposes. The second is that some of these great men were agnostics ("I accept that there is a God, I'm just not sure that it's YOUR "God") and atheists ("I don't believe that there is a "God" instead I believe that WE are RESPONSIBLE for our actions) These folks did not want a religion (or it's prejudices) rammed down their throats in the Law. Bottom line: IF you want to live in a nation which mandates your religion and enshrines it in Law...please leave, The USA is NOT that place. I have as much (and perhaps MORE) RIGHTS to be FREE of your religion as you have to practice it!

    Although "religion" isn't mentioned in this article, I think this is definitely a sign of how strong the influence of the fundamentalist religious right has become. It seems that, as if there aren't enough crises to deal with, american is being driven toward theocracy. One of the hallmarks of the male dominated, hierarchic structures of all organised religions is their misogynous nature. Think of the british government that was depicted in the movie "V for Vendetta" and I think you'll have a fair estimate of where america is headed.

    This is not only disgusting but severely disturbing. These politicians are being elected too office how?? Wake up ladies! Stop listening to lies & false promises. Stop voting for politicians just because that's the party you "belong to" or your parents did or your significant other does. This isn't about them, it's about YOU! Think about your health & safety. Think about the health & safety of your daughters & granddaughters. These repulsive bills being passed are founded on LIES made up by politicians seeking too control you, not protect you. That's a matter of verifiable fact. Stop voting them in, stop letting them make life altering decisions for you, stop letting them tell you your worth as a woman, stop letting them tell you how to live your life. Stop being silent! We have a voice, we've proved that in the past. It's time for us to remind these backwards politicians of that fact.

    I am an adopted child. My mother wanted very much to give birth to me and to raise me as her own but she was disabled due to having Polio as a young child. She was also unable to financially raise me. This was in 1950 and a woman was scorned and treated as an outcast at that time but she chose to have me and abortion was not an option. The government should stay out of this decision. There should not be any "abortion clinics" but it should be treated as any other surgical procedure--performed because it is medically necessary. Where the government should get involved is when a young girl--yes, I did not say woman, but a young girl who is told if she wants benefits she should "go home and get pregnant". Don't say this doesn't happen. It happened to my daughter! There should be Family planning and counseling funded by the government because if you are going to say it's ok to keep your baby they should be supported, financially and with counseling. My personal opinion is that there are souls that will come back to us after they die. A mother may lose a child to SIDS and may have another child born with that child's spirit. What if you decide to kill that spirit? If it is medically necessary, the doctor will agree and the abortion will need to be performed. It should be noted, though, that the doctor does not have the last word. Just as with any surgery, the patient has to agree with the doctor's advice.
