"Nothing says jobs like transvaginal probes!"

I keep hearing the phrase "GOP's war on women." There is much more going on than that. The GOP is creating a war against common sense.

Stop the GOP's war against common sense by not voting for them and sharing information with everyone.

But the regulator doesn't requisite government to pull media attending. Since seemly educator of the Common Governors Memory, he's been making the rounds of the program shows. In the furor over the Obama-care construct requiring sacred institutions to offer disembarrass nativity control, O'Malley-a Catholic-said on CNN that opponents of the determine, including members of the Catholic organisation, were doing "too more hyperventilating." Asked almost Virginia's platter of job beginning, O'Malley quipped, "Nil says jobs equal transvaginal probes."

Women who suffered serious injuries following implantation of pelvic mesh may be eligible to file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit seeking compensation or their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages. The vaginal mesh lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are actively filing claims in four vaginal mesh litigations underway in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, involving pelvic mesh devices manufactured by American Medical Systems, Inc., Boston Scientific Corp., C.R. Bard, Inc. and Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon, Inc. subsidiary. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in all of these federal litigations. The Firm is also involved in two consolidated proceedings underway in New Jersey Superior Court, Atlantic County that involve products manufactured by Ethicon and C.R. Bard. Mr. Grand is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in both of these litigations.

Maybe I'm missing something, but the block-quote attributes the quote to a Democrat.

...Nevermind... I found the source that was seemingly hiding in the post. The source says the following:

The governor was asked about his perceived presidential ambitions. As he has in the past he deflected the questions, saying that he's focused now on governing Maryland.

He also took some jabs at the Republican party, which he believes has strayed from the economy. "Nothing says jobs like transvaginal probes," O'Malley said, referring to the controversial legislation backed by VA Gov. Bob McDonnell, a Republican, that would have required some women to undergo the invasive procedure before having an abortion."

...That little bit of context helps.

Good place to stop. Listing all of the 1100 bills and amendments offered by the GOP in states across the country which really drive the point home, is insurmountable. Of course there are many other more subtle attacks than these but there is no way you could possibly post all of the attacks in this space. But the little piece that you provide is very helpful. Thanks.

Please tell me you actually know where such a list is...

I googled it. Here is a quote,.“legislators introduced more than 1,100 reproductive health and rights-related provisions, a sharp increase from the 950 introduced in 2010. By year’s end, 135 of these provisions had been enacted in 36 states, an increase from the 89 enacted in 2010 and the 77 enacted in 2009,” according to Guttmacher.

Tell me you really wanted the answer. You won't hear it on Faux Snooze. Here is is.

Beautiful! Thanks!

This is bound to create a lot of jobs (back room abortionists, emergency room personnel to try to save bleeding women, suicide investigators, etc.). Plus all of those guys with flashlights standing at the foot of your bed and in your bathroohttp://occupywallst.org/forum/nothing-says-jobs-like-transvaginal-probes/#m to make sure you don't do something illegal. Jobs. jobs, jobs.

Dude - you're missing a HUGE new field of job growth - Medical Captivity! You can outlaw abortion, but you can't keep herbalists from growing abortifacents. You can't keep women from taking massive doses of Vitamin C, which is very effective at terminating a pregnancy in the first 6 - 8 weeks.

BUT YOU CAN IMPRISON THEM! I think we should call it 'Lifesaving Detention'. Of course, we'll need staff to guard them, staff to prepare food for them, medical staff to make sure they don't do any crazy nonsense like hunger strikes or suicide, and janitorial staff as well. Unlike prisons, where inmates with good behavior are given jobs cooking and cleaning and what-not, you won't be able to trust these women with anything. No kitchen knives, no toxic chemicals, and certainly no broom handles.

Don't think it ends when the baby is delivered. Somebody is going to have to feed it and clothe it and educate it, and we obviously can't count on the unwilling mothers to do that. Even though states are currently slashing food aid and educational spending all over the place, I'm sure they'll ramp up their social services departments again when they realize they have precious former fetuses to take care of.

Really, the so-called 'war on women' is just a very clever economic stimulus bill. Jobs everywhere!

I get it. Psychiatrists, counselors, ministers, of course, to handle the psychological trauma. So, you multiply all of that times the 22% of all pregnancies (currently) that are unwanted, and you can see the potential job growth. It's amazing. Amazing, I tell you.

No wonder 80% of the proposed legislation in the House and the state houses since 2010 was focused on creating this new industry. Creationism at its finest.
