Robert Goforth (WBON-TV/screen grab)

A Kentucky Republican candidate for governor said this week that he is sponsoring a bill to effectively ban abortion because women “need to be more responsible with their actions.”

Republican state Rep. Robert Goforth, who announced Tuesday that he is running for governor, filed House Bill 100, which is similar to a Senate bill that attempts to outlaw abortion as soon as a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

“It’s essentially a ban,” Brigitte Amiri of the American Civil Liberties Union told the Courier-Journal. “Without a lawsuit to block it, abortion would be effectively banned in the state.”

. . .

“I think it’s making people be more responsible,” he said. “If they’re going to engage in activity that’s going to end up in conception, they just need to be more responsible with their actions.”

KY pharmacist hoping to stop drugs by educating young students
By Miranda Combs | Posted: Thu 4:41 PM, Jan 12, 2017 | Updated: Thu 5:39 PM, Jan 12, 2017

MANCHESTER, Ky. (WKYT) - About twenty students filed into the gymnasium of Hacker Elementary School in Manchester on a Thursday morning. The school is one of forty groups Pharmacist Robert Goforth has spoken to this school year.

"Have you guys ever been to a pharmacy? Do you know what a pharmacist does?" Goforth asked the students. The lesson to the students is fittingly elementary. "Even if you are seven, eight or ten or fifteen years-old, you only take medicine from a trusted adult, right?"

The 30-minute assembly is a baseline about prescription medications. Goforth shows pictures of candy next to pills and asks the class which one is medicine. "They look a lot alike, right?" he quizzes.

Goforth spoke to WKYT's Miranda Combs after the presentation, "They thought I was crazy," he said. "Whenever I called the schools and said 'I wanna talk to your kindergarten class. I want to talk to your first and second and third graders."

1. What about women raped against their will or molested by a relative and ends of pregnant?

Is that being irresponsible? Something tells me this guy won’t even make it to the primary.

13. Exactly

This is so infuriating. For as long as I can remember, the responsibility for pregnancies has fallen on the women, not the men. To hear fools like this talk, you'd think that men didn't really want to engage in sex at all. Must have been some woman's fault.

Maybe all anti-choice males should submit to vasectomies. That should cut down on abortions.

Edit to add, that in this guy's case, perhaps castration would be more appropriate!

18. A mass ban on sex with male

republicans should change their tune! Sadly, not all are forthcoming with their political affiliations or philosophy, especially if they are trying to score. Many men are inclined to do or say anything for sex.

Can we fund a wall around Kentucky, and complete it as McTurtle and Rand Paul are home? THAT would be the best start at making America Great Again.

Supports Viagra and other sexual performance enhancing drugs only for married males with consent of spouse?

Government paid DNA testing to determine paternity with mandatory child support payments followed by male sterilization to prevent such irresponsible actions from occurring again?

Women? Women need to take responsibility? Hasn’t anybody informed this moronic piece of shit that it takes two to tango? What a fucking idiot, yet the stupid Southern Christian Conservatives will actually cast votes for him in the name of the good Lord above. Well I have but one thing to say to this bag of excrement; “BLESS YOUR HEART”.

23. It takes 2 to tango

What about the irresponsible men and their irresponsible sperm? What if a woman finds herself pregnant and finds out the father of the fetus has no intention of being financially or emotionally responsible for that child, and to provide financial and emotional support to her throughout the pregnancy?

39. I read this part over and over, hoping it would finally make sense!

A day after the 2018 high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 students and staff dead, Bevin told the Cincinnati Enquirer that guns weren't the problem. When he went to school in New England, students would bring guns in for show-and-tell, he said.

"Sometimes they'd be in kids' lockers," Bevin said. "Nobody even thought about shooting other people with them. So it's not a gun problem."

Conservatives all "think" the same, don't they? They try so hard to sound like adults, poor things.

Thank you for the deeper look. It just leaves one in shock.

Who can't stand the idea of women having independence of anything.

Plus the old idea of punishing women via the old Scarlet A route.

And I am a 61 yr old white male, so I can call an asshole when I see one.
