Given the GOP’s obsession with making health care decisions for girls and women, you may have wondered how any self-respecting physician could identify with the Republican Party. Rep. Doug Cox (R-OK) is wondering the same thing. Responding to legislation that would deny poor women contraception that would prevent abortions, Cox, a doctor, decided that he had to speak out in a letter to the The Oklahoman....his letter is dead on. Read it for yourself: Denis Accessible, Increase Legally, Election Republican, Back Alley Abortion, Prevention Abortion, Liberal, Feminism, Contraception, Elimination Abortion

Republicans stated that the bill was not paid for and voted against moving it forward. Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) opposed the bill since it duplicated existing job programs for veterans. -This bill was brought up by the Dems to make Republicans look bad right before the 2012 election. Pin is somewhat misleading.
Any woman that votes for a party that disrespects her as much as the republican party is a slap in the face to all of the brave women in history that fought for all of the rights you enjoy today.
Thx Republicans for Tax inequality, Wage inequality and the Fleecing of the American People!!
This is outrageous, the thought that a hospital or single doctor could decide that you are not worth saving. Although doctors should council families about the value of life extending/saving measures and the standard of living the patient will have--Ultimately it should be up to the patient (or their families) to decide when the fight is over.
It is not the business of any politician to be concerned about what goes in in the private office of my gynocologist. Those visits are about MY health, MY future, and MY choices. It is the business of NO ONE ELSE! How dare you try to legislate away my freedoms as an American citizen.
A breast cancer survivor that been denied all health insurance other than the expensive federal high-risk pool which was unaffordable. This will all change starting in 2013 when no one can be denied health insurance for "pre-existing conditions" under the new Health Care Act. Thank you President Obama!
