Barbara Boxer: Hobby Lobby Objections Not Fair Because They Never Talk About Viagra

By Cultural Limits on March 26, 2014   • ( 1 )



Ever wonder if there is a personal reason Babs is constantly harping about viagra?

If that little interview doesn’t demonstrate the intellectual level of the current discussion on religious liberty coming from the left….

Here’s the thing, Babs.  Viagra is being marketed for a side effect.  It’s actually a blood pressure drug.  In the beginning, the ED cure was a nuisance.  There’s a TON of warnings that go with it, including the famous “seek a doctor for an erection lasting more than four hours.”  (Or a porn director.  Victim’s choice.)  It’s still a dangerous drug.

Do Christian groups object to it?  Well, since the net result is not killing innocent human life unless there is a serious drop in blood pressure (one of the side effects), doubtful, although not many people spend time discussing it.  Seriously, guys don’t really want to talk about it, unlike women who sit at parties and compare birth control methods.  (Really, they do, which is why I spend a lot of time listening to fishing stories.)

As it is, men were not really thought of much in the entire ObamaCare fiasco.  Just women, who don’t all use artificial birth control, despite Babs’ assertion.  There is such a thing as abstinence and the calendar, which is perfectly free.  In fact, there are some Christian approved ways of watching the female body that are more effective than the pills, but she probably doesn’t want to hear that.

But, seriously, for Babs, a couple rather nasty Supreme Court Justicinas and a whole lot of other females who are lobbying for all access birth control all the time, the entire idea that there might be a higher argument for not treating genitalia as a quick and dirty drive through is lost.  To them, humans are no different than any other animal in the wild.  God is not part of the discussion.

Hence the blithe dismissal of the violation of religious liberty argument.

And as for the assertion that, who knows, some Christian group might object to vaccination – Babs, they’re called Christian Scientists, and they’ve been around for a very long time.  They have a boarding school not too far away that ends up quarantined every now and then with measles outbreaks.

Geez, for a “smart” woman, Babs sure is ignorant.

p.s.  This is not the first time Babs has equated the idea of abortion/birth control with Viagra.  It’s as if sex is all she really understands.
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Dear Sen. Boxarockster, Your side never talks about the most efficient, cheapest form of birth control, either. You know. Keeping your knees together [which, in your case, probably wasn't that difficult.

Maybe Viagra is important to Babs Boxer because Democrat men are in such need of it (and not for the blood pressure effect).

So what's her point?  They also haven't talked about e-lax which could be looked at as "another form" of birth control.  Its pretty hard to conceive when you're doubled over and sitting on the can.

I'm guessing I don't want to, either! :thud:

What exactly is the effect on blood pressure?

What exactly is the effect on blood pressure?

From wikipedia:

Quote
As well as erectile dysfunction, sildenafil citrate is also effective in the rare disease pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). It relaxes the arterial wall, leading to decreased pulmonary arterial resistance and pressure. This, in turn, reduces the workload of the right ventricle of the heart and improves symptoms of right-sided heart failure. Because PDE5 is primarily distributed within the arterial wall smooth muscle of the lungs and penis, sildenafil acts selectively in both these areas without inducing vasodilation in other areas of the body. Pfizer submitted an additional registration for sildenafil to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and sildenafil was approved for this indication in June 2005. The preparation is named Revatio, to avoid confusion with Viagra, and the 20 milligram tablets are white and round. Sildenafil joins bosentan and prostacyclin-based therapies for this condition.

(emphasis mine).

Perhaps the lower part of the abdomen?  You know, sort of like a giraffe has the highest blood pressure of all animals because it has to keep its "head" up?

Lowers it, from anywhere from very slightly to significantly. I am not allowed to use it for that reason.  **nononono*
