Viagra is a male enhancement drug. Penis Pumps are male enhancements too. The Birth Control PillRead Morea llows women, all women, married, unmarried, etc. to control their destiny. Birth Control is part of women's healthcare. Mathew, really!

Well, Matthew Andras for your information, birth control pills are not only taken to preventRead Morepregnan cy, but many women take it to regulate their menstrual cycle, as well as to lessen the extremely uncomfortable premenstrual symptoms (pms) such as cramping, headache, etc.; therefore, making it a "medical necessity". Birth Control pills also may aid in the prevention of cervix and breast cancer. But I guess you wouldn't know any of that because you didn't bother to research and actually educate yourself on an issue that you know nothing about, but still choose to give an opinion on. I'm guessing that you are all for the penis pump for your own personal reasons.

Well said, Alicia. Please share Congressman Smith's Anti Woman agenda with your friends andRead Morefamily. Urge them to vote in November and vote Against Smith's agenda. He is trying to block private insurance companies from providing women basic health care, cancer screenings, STD and AIDS, Breast Exams, all forms of birth control and sex ed training. He voted for fetal personhood, he voted to block health professionals from sharing with women all their health options, tried to block abortion even the case of saving the mother's life. he voted to criminalize doctors by allowing family members to sue the doctor if they disagree with the women's choice to end a pregnancy. He wrote a bill changing the language from rape to forcible rape to make it harder for women who are raped to prove rape. Which is reckless and endangers women while empower rapists. He voted against equal pay for women and on and on. He also voted against the Violence Against Women's Act. No women should ever vote for Smith.

WHY do you need to spread LIES to get your spawn elected?

Our post is factual. Congressman Smith is not working for the people of District 4. It's time for Read Moreus to speak out in November.

The last thing the GOP wants is the undoing of Wade vs Roe. They would loose a lot of money andRead Morethe ir main issue.

We wish that were true, Lou. Unfortunately, their are extremists and fanatics that have takenRead Morecontr ol of the Congress and they not only would like to abolish a women's right to choose, and have nearly succeeded but they are going after all forms of Birth Control including the Pill. Our Congressman has lead the attack on Roe as the Chair of the Congressional Anti Choice Caucus and has referred to the Birth Control Pill as "Baby Pesticide." Smith has gone as far as redefining rape (His bill HR3). The purpose redefining rape is to make it harder for women that were impregnated by their attacker to seek a safe and legal abortion. That legislation was shot down in a public outcry due to it's extreme nature but if it were up to our Congressman, that would be the law. His single mindedness in overturning Roe has impacted his legislation and common sense. Changing the language of Rape to Forcible Rape, endangers women and empowers rapists. It's reckless and cruel toward women. Smith's colleague in his anti -choice crusade, Paul Ryan, was quoted that rape is a form of conception and life is life. For people that value a women's right to control the destiny of her life and body, this Congressional Race is very important. Most folks do not understand that Local Government is Government and voting for a Congressman that shares your values is how your voice is heard in this country. It is our last chance to save Roe.

I wonder if she would say the same thing about Gun Control. That in fact, education does reduceRead Moreacci dents, so why dont we have firearm safety in our schools anymore ???
District 4 Coalition for Change March 26, 2014 at 09:18 AM
We don't have firearm safety because Congress is not willing to pass basic, common sense gunRead Morereforms such as required gun training, etc. Our Congressman, Chris Smith will not discuss Universal Background Checks on a National Level, even though we already have them in place in NJ. He was endorsed by the Brady Campaign years ago but has remained silent since Newtown because he is pandering to his colleagues and his pledge to the gun lobby. It's really disgusting. BTW, it's not gun control. It is gun reform. Most gun safety advocates are not trying to control or take peoples guns. They simply want safety measures in place to reduce the epidemic of gun violence. Almost 60 School Shooting since Newtown and some states (Idaho, Georgia) and soon Indiana are actually loosening laws to allow criminals to acquire guns and allow teens with guns on campus. Criminals with guns and drunk frats with guns - that makes a lot of sense.
Matthew Andras March 27, 2014 at 03:41 PM
There are so many things that are not "Common Sense" as you would say. The epidemic thatRead Morey ou speak of is a social epidemic that needs fixing. Guns have been around for hundreds of years, but people's morals and values have changed. And please, lets talk about new Jersey's draconian laws that are so outdated and poorly written. And with the democratic led onslaught that severely lack common sense. I would be more then happy to have that debate with you. And isn't it amazing that with all of these states issuing more and more CCW license's, crime has been steadily going down. Yet here in the Great Peoples republic of New Jermany, we are kept as sheeple just waiting to be slaughtered with no way of protecting ourselves outside of the home. Hell, I would carry a slingshot with me if I could, but that is illegal here, and if I was caught would be a class 2 felony, equal to that of a sex offender...
