Links: political psychology, gay marrage

The more educated Republicans/conservatives are, the more they reject science.

True of liberals? Apparently not: they start out with an anti-nuclear bias, but more education on the subject lessens their worries, moving them closer to the scientific consensus, rather than further away, as with conservatives and global warming.

Medicalization of anti-authoritarianism.

First link: "Thus, the Obamacare statute mandates that employer group health plans cover all FDA-approved contraceptive methods, including contraception, sterilization procedures, and “emergency contraception” (as the FDA calls the Plan B, Plan B One-Step, Next Choice, and Ella “morning-after” pills)."

Yes, it calls them emergency contraception, because they act by preventing ovulation, rather than aborting an implanted embryo like RU-486. So the page claims 'abortifacients' but fails to give evidence of any. This constitutes evidence against your claim.

Second link: gives no evidence just parrots a claim of abortifacients, and while they may be anti-Catholic, they're also obviously violently against Obama and health care reform.

Bullshit. You will believe any lie that comes out of the Obama lie machine. And you have the fucking cheek to discard someone because they are against Obama on principle, without realizing that even if that were bad it would be no more than the mirror of your own attitudes. I've had enough and to spare of argying with you about things on which you would not take the word of anyone or anything. The experience of your fable-history should have been enough to tell me to keep the fuck away.

What lies? My quotation was from YOUR link to the Heritage foundation, and quoting what they said the bill+regulations meant. The chemical nature and function of what they list is a matter of scientific record, or for the lazy Wikipedia. Nowhere did I quote anything from the Obama administration.

As for the second, well, they didn't actually say anything even worth discarding. The post was mostly listing political ties and donations, and the only relevance here was a single mention of 'abortifacients'.

Also, I'm not sure why you would admit they lie about Catholics and then expect me to believe they won't lie about Obama.

fable-history? What, India again?
