    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.

      Daily Kos: Republican Lawmaker Fearlessly Tells The Truth About Abortion. "Yet I cannot convince my Republican colleagues that one of the best ways to eliminate abortions is to ensure access to contraception. A recent attempt by my fellow lawmakers to prevent Medicaid dollars from covering the “morning after” pill is a case in point. Denying access to this important contraceptive is a sure way to increase legal and back-alley abortions."

      BARBARIC...IGNORANCE! Responding to legislation to DENY poor women contraception that would prevent abortions, Rep. Doug Cox (R-OK) , a doctor, decided to speak out in open letter: "What happened to Republican Party that felt that the government has no business being in an exam room, standing between me and my patient? Where did the party go that felt some decisions in a woman’s life should be made not by legislators and government, but rather by the women, her conscience, her doctor & her God?"

    What the republican party stands for.

    One Republican telling it like it is.

    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.

    Republicans....never part of the solution, always at the root of the problem.

    Many politicians in Washington do not agree with one another but, the Republican Party seems to go beyond disagreement and promote hatred. They hate Obama, science and climate change, immigrants, Muslims, ethnic minorities, labor unions, food programs, taxes, women's rights, abortion, contraceptives, gun control, compromise, and governing. They harbor birthers and white supremacists; gun toting activists and revolutionary hotheads.

    When the world courts want indictments against former republican leaders Bush and Cheney it's kinda obvious there is a deep problem in the Republican Party.

    Shut down the Republican Party - VOTE and we can do it!!!!!

    And Paul Broun is a physician?

    Republicans need small government to continue their assault on the middle class and for the benefit of their corporation sponcers.

    History will confirm the accuracy of this and note that this was the time when the republican party began its quick demise after greed and racism became its central theme.

    Hmmmm....sounds familiar

    It's sad how republicans have turned their backs on our veterans.

    Abortion. I don't think a doctor should be forced to perform one, but they shouldn't be able to push their religious beliefs on someone seeking one either.
