    Quote from Kaci82
    What would you say to a woman who became pregnant due to rape? Was that her fault? Or to a teenager who was maybe pressured into having sex and didn't have enough confidence or self-esteem to say no?

    I believe if men could get pregnant, abortion wouldn't even be a debate.
    It would surely change the debate, but belief systems won't change. This is largely a moral question and it is very difficult to legislate morality.

    In some rural areas, Alaska for example, the PHNs travel to villages to provide their services.
    As one might imagine, it is hard to maintain "bankers hours" when practicing like that. I do believe that they are primarily M-F, 8-4:30 though, even here.

    good luck to you...!

    Politician of any ilk want a trifecta in elections.
    That agenda is evident in EVERYTHING they do and in the amount of time they spend being concerned with elections vs. any other productive activity.
    I am not sure that it is reasonable to blame this POTUS for the state of affairs in government that WE have allowed for a long, long time.

    Has anyone ever took part in an political, abortion, gun control, corporate tax debate on AN and suddenly changed their position? I highly doubt it. All those discussions do is give people a chance to vent and give others a chance to refer to them as ignorant, etc.

    Besides, if you don't live in Ohio then what they vote on, or how they vote is really none of your business is it?
    I know that my beliefs are informed by what I listen to and what I read...I certainly have evolved in some positions over time,...abortion being one. When we are willing to listen to another view point, we are in danger or evolving our own opinions.

    I am concerned about Ohio because I have female family members and friends who live there...women of child bearing ages who will be affected by this legislation. I believe that what happened in Ohio is in danger of happening in other "conservative" controlled states, and it seems that is not an unfounded concern.

    Most of us on AN do NOT call other posters names, although most of us have been called names. I, for instance, was called ignorant in a post just the other day because I have differing opinions.

    I believe it is important to know what is happening in these United States.

    The robots should replace the administrators...that would be easy...cheaper too.
    No big bonuses, long vacations, big salaries...the robot can do the figurin at low cost, works 24/7, doesn't need a bonus, and the $$ can be used for bedside care.

    I said I would dump it on the floor and call the cno. It will quickly get cleaned if it is on the floor.

    The link to the admin help desk does not work.
    I am not arguing with the staff...I AM ASKING QUESTIONS

    Apparently I AM censored.

    Since the link provided does not work...

    What about my post is insulting?
    What part is rude?
    Where did I offer destructive criticism?
    Where did I name call?
    Where is there any personal "attack" in what I have written in response to the post I quoted?

    To characterize the expectation that I cannot possibly disapprove of Obama in any as "all or nothing" fits none of the above criteria, especially as compared to posts that you allow to remain on the thread.

    Certainly there was no need to remove the entire comment...am I censored now?

    Dear tewdles,

    You have received a Warning at Nursing for Nurses - allnurses.com.

    Reason: Insulting Other Member(s)
    -------
    Tewdles:

    As a long term member and debater, you should have headed the admin warning posted to avoid personal attacks Terms Of Service

    I will ignore the part where you call me ignorant.
    I am familiar with that book...born-again Antisocial Darwinism...
    You seem a bit confused that I might disagree with something president Obama has said or done. Does this trouble your "all or nothing" sensibilities? This is rude? name calling? a personal attack? criticsm? did I insult their opinion?
    Allnurses promotes the idea of lively debate. This means you are free to disagree with anyone on any type of subject matter as long as your criticism is constructive and polite. We also ask to please refrain from name-calling. This is divisive, rude, and derails the thread. Our first priority is to the members that have come here because of the flame-free atmosphere we provide.
    There is a zero-tolerance policy here against personal attacks. We will not tolerate anyone insulting other's opinion nor name calling.
    Our call is to be supportive, not divisive

    -------

    This Warning is worth 20 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious Warnings will never expire.

    You seem to have become as confused, as a few others have, thinking that I am a FOX news sort of LIBERAL.

    In fact, as many know, I am nothing of the sort.

    For you to suggest that I "blindly follow" any mantra suggests that you have either not read many of my posts, or you cannot comprehend them.

    My type of thinking is important if we want this country to have any kind of a balanced approach to the here, the now, AND the future. Our founding fathers would be ashamed that so little tolerance for differing opinions is demonstrated in our current government and public discourse. I would suggest that your rhetoric is evidence of that very thing. Imagine if there was no difference of opinion to temper us in the workplace, in the home, and even in our government. Shame on you for suggesting that to disagree somehow makes one of us "bad". This is rude? name calling? a personal attack? criticsm? did I insult their opinion?

    I know you are not naive enough to believe that there is no corruption, fraud, or greed in churches, charities, and not for profit organizations. We are to blame for all of it, private/public/corporate...we tolerate all of it, we even celebrate some of it in this country. We may give to them if we want. We are, however, compelled to pay taxes and most of us want our tax dollars to keep us and our neighbors healthy and give us a chance. This is rude? name calling? a personal attack? criticsm? did I insult their opinion?

    I will ignore the part where you call me ignorant.

    You seem a bit confused that I might disagree with something president Obama has said or done. Does this trouble your "all or nothing" sensibilities? It should give you a clue that I am not a Democrat (is that what you meant by "you people", and "people like you"?). You really can't miss how bigoted that sounds, can you? You know, "those people" who think like that, they shouldn't even be allowed in AN, right? This is rude? name calling? a personal attack? criticsm? did I insult their opinion?

    By the way, I like your thinking on taxes...we shouldn't be forced to pay them at all. We should get to decide how to spend our money 100%. Corporations should pay taxes.

    I am both/neither. I feel an abortion should be legal up to about 20 weeks. If you have not had one by then it's too late. Barring unforeseen circumstances. You're boyfriend breaking up with you at 21 weeks is not an acceptable reason.

    On the other hand, a person should not be charged with a crime for causing the miscarriage/death of a fetus that is not viable outside the womb. How can you have it both ways? How can it be a living being that one can be charged with killing if the mother has the choice of aborting on the same day? Killing a pregnant woman should never bring the charge of a double murder unless the fetus could have survived on its own. After all it's just a mass of tissue until it's born, right?

    People think of a pregnancy the same as the flu. If you get pregnant, it's your freaking fault. You didn't contract it by no fault of your own. If your ins does not cover birth control, condoms are not expensive. If you can't afford condoms, and he cannot afford condoms, maybe you should rethink your choice in a sex partner or your maturity level for having sex. Hell, they are a whole lot cheaper than the cell phone everyone has. When all else fails, the best birth control is 100% free.
    Too bad men don't get pregnant when there is a birth control failure or during rape...perhaps they would have a bit more compassion then?...just sayin

    I like that distinction BC...I am decidedly pro-choice and decidedly not pro-abortion.

    I guess I was trying to say that a large part of the problem with health care is that government is too involved. Also, it's true that there will always be people who can not afford to pay for healthcare, this is where charity comes in. The problem with forcing me to pay for someone elses healthcare is that I don't believe the government manages money well, if I get to keep more of my income then I can choose how best to spend it and give it to the charity of my choice. I can give to a charity that reflects my basic values and uses it's resources wisely rather than giving it to the government.
    You are already paying for the cost of the uninsured...you are just doing it in the most expensive way possible.

    We have had government out of our health care, it has been run by capitalists.

    As a result we have the worst health outcomes at the highest cost in the world with millions uninsured and millions more under-insured. Too many middle class people are forced into bankrupcy every year due to medical bills.

    Our free market health system now costs us a significant portion of our GDP...you pay for it in that respect too. Before recommending we return to the failures of the past, perhaps you could consider improving things for the people of the country rather than the corporations.

    I would much rather pay federal taxes to insure that my fellow citizens are healthy than to pay federal taxes to insure that corporations get their entitlements and record profits.

    It is the government's job to protect the people...not the church.
