That these legislators, who loudly proclaim, they want a less invasive government somehow fail to see the hypocrisy, of getting government off our backs and shrinking government down so they can insert it between a woman's legs and even inside her reproductive choices.
They cannot stop abortions, they can't physically beat women, so they resort to placing economic barriers and delays and the judgement of politicians ahead of the judgement of citizens, who just happen to be women.
What utter lack of respect, for women, for mothers, for sisters and indeed for their own precious daughters. These are not "would-be protectors" these are bullies, who make rules that do not apply to themselves.
Where is the "fair play"? Hold your religion, and cherish it, live it, teach it's values to your children. BUT FREEDOM of RELIGION also means, don't attempt to enforce your religious rules on others who do not believe as you do.
Government so small, you can forcibly insert it into a woman's vagina? That is not the right to freedom of religion. That is simply wrong.
