NOW calls Little Sisters of the Poor “dirty” – Megyn Kelly has nun of it
NOW they really have gone and done it.
The National Organization of Women (NOW) put the Little Sisters of the Poor on a list of 100 “dirty” companies which decline to provide some forms of birth control for religious reasons, via Townhall:
The National Organization of Women (NOW) has compiled a list of what they’re calling the “Dirty 100” — organizations who have filed suit against the HHS Contraception Mandate. One of the “Dirty 100” organizations that NOW claims is simply “using religion” to discriminate against women, is, in fact, a group of Catholic religious sisters called the Little Sisters of the Poor.
The Little Sisters of the Poor take vows to tend to the needs of the elderly poor. They are opposed to providing contraception to their employees as contraception violates the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The Little Sisters of the Poor are not considered to be a “religious employer” and exempt from the mandate as they employ and care for people of all faith backgrounds.
Megyn Kelly was having
none nun of it when Patricia Ireland defended the terminology (via Daily Signal):
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I’ll sell you my little piece of cardboard.
I put it on the computer screen to cover Patricia Ireland’s face. That way you can enjoy the video along with looking at Kelly without the associated nightmare of viewing Ireland or some other hag feminist.
Why doesn’t somebody with a public face just keep repeating over and over that the women can buy their pills for about $10 per month, and forget the entire religious argument? Other people pay for their prescriptions that are a lot more necessary than BC pills. Some are covered under health coverage, some are not, and some have copays. There must be hundreds, perhaps thousands, of examples of this.
Although occasionally prescribed for hormone-related disorders, BC pills should simply be deemed a “recreational” drug and let the women who want it pay for it or work it out with their health coverage carrier. Same for Viagra.
Any “man” worthy of the term should be paying for the privileges/services his sexual partner provides. I mean, if she is THAT impoverished.
Hell, that $10 is about a quarter of a cheap dinner with drinks per month.
Man up, metrosexuals…!!!
Sex is the temporary partnership of a man and woman, which requires that each party invest in its successful execution. So, gentlemen, ladies, delay your indulgence in luxuries, and invest in your mutual enjoyment.
Someone remind me again why Lesbians=Feminists need birth control.
Fun with turkey basters…???
For the same reasons that they support Obamacare, which addressed neither progressive inflation, ensuring that medical care remains unaffordable, nor limited resources, ensuring that medical cares remains unavailable.
The masses demand their dissociation of risk opiate. And there is no greater “burden” or risk to the pursuit of money, sex, and convenience, for both women and men, than accepting responsibility for the health of their child.
I have some news for all of you, because not one of these precious little darlings could exist in Australia if they were expecting someone else to pay for their birth control pills.
Medical insurance covers mostly covers hospital expenses plus extras cover. The extras only kicks in when the medication is high cost i.e. it is over the NHS co-payment amount. For example when Lyrica greater than $100 the amount that was covered by the fund was P – co-payment = the person still had to pay more than $30 for the prescription. All medication that costs less than the co-payment upper limit is paid by the patient in full. No health insurance scheme will cover the cost. Oh horrors, if B.C. is worth about $20 then that comes out of the pocket of the person who has the prescription.
I cannot imagine how Sandra Fluke for example would be able to survive if she actually had to fork out that much for birth control – maybe it would be better if she simply closed her legs and then she would not have to be concerned.
Considering what I have to pay for my medication and I am not talking birth control here, I find it rather disgusting that they are getting their knickers in a twist over something that costs very little each month. Those women need to give up their recreational drugs or at least keep their legs closed.
NOW is fighting the neo-orgasmic war with hundreds of millions left dead and rotting in their toilets.
While contraception is unnatural, elective abortion is murder. Neither is health care. The penumbra from which that conclusion was pulled is both illogical and illegitimate in light of our respect for human and civil rights. Elective abortion is the casual termination of human life for money, sex, ego, and convenience. It is advanced by interests which want to reduce the problem set (i.e. population control), increase taxable activity, create political leverage, etc.
It didn’t happen just yesterday but we have come to a really bad point in this country where we can’t even get people to stay on topic for an argument.
The shout-fest continues where the two sides refuse to respond directly point-for-point to one another.
“One of the “Dirty 100″ organizations that NOW claims is simply “using religion” to discriminate against women, is, in fact, a group of Catholic religious sisters called the Little Sisters of the Poor.”
Putting someone on a hate watch list IS discrimination, perhaps defamation.
Be socially just. Buy your own contraception. Buy it at Walmart.
Or,….you could just say “No.” (A term used by “choice” in the practice of self-control. It works 100% of the time, too.
The NOW should all become nuns to see how the rest of the world lives.
Humorous theory (but nevertheless possible secondary motive): NAGs want the public to think BC is important to them so that it appears they’re having sex; thus, they’re “desirable”.
Unwanted pregnancies cause domestic violence?
Yep. Historically, some of the strongest supporters of abortion on demand are men who insist on the morals of a buck goat.
What I fail to understand is why, if women don’t like the philosophy or beliefs of the company for whom they work, they don’t just FIND ANOTHER JOB . . . with a company more aligned with their own, personal belief system . . . why force an unnatural relationship?
(oh yeah . . . in this 0bamaw0rld there aren’t any other jobs?)
Ummm…did Bill Clinton make the list? I’m asking for a friend.
Communist hit by freight train.
The problem is that we’re automatically opted in. The problem is not the Little Sisters of the Poor, abortion, contraception, who your “friends” are, how many rounds you can put in a magazine, how big a soda you can buy, what you can or can’t have for lunch, and what shape you nibble your PB&J sandwich into. The problem is that we’re told how to do, what to do, and when to do from the moment we arise in the morning until we fall asleep at night. Generously, the ability to “opt out” is always left for us. After all, this is America, home of the free and the brave. So, to avoid being too confining, to provide for all possible circumstances, opting out is available to well-intentioned if short sighted souls everywhere – under specific circumstances, under certain conditions, depending upon who we are, where we are, where we work, where we go to church, how old, what gender, how much we make, who we voted for, if we’re willing to pay the penalty (or tax, fee, or surcharge) and, of course, who we know.
That wraps it up very nicely.

It’s on! The Little Sisters of the Poor vs. The “Little Girlfriends” of… Bill Clinton!
er….um…..I think it’s “The Little Girlfriends” of “The Big Girlfriends”.
Burn in hell, Patricia Ireland.
Of course I mean that in the best possible way.
The birth control mandate is not part of the law; it is a regulation written by unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats. Empowering bureaucrats to write and enforce regulations are a big part of the problem with this country.

The Rule of Nobody: Saving America from Dead Laws and Broken Government – Q&A with Philip K. Howard
She really is deranged, isn’t she? Ugly, too.
Contraception is not healthcare.
And the four drugs that Hobby Lobby refused to offer are not CONTRAceptives.
That 98% of Catholic Women supposedly opt for Birth Control has no bearing on the eclesiastical beliefs of the Catholic Church. Articles of faith and belief have never been established by widespread practice of Lay membership. The government through which organizations like NOW act have no right or standing in determining what Catholic Belifs are.
Science says some of these treatments destroy a fertilized egg. Thats what they are designed to do. That is how they work.
Ms ireland seems to be completely oblivious to the Hobby Lobby decision, what the arguments were, and what the decision came to.
