Not a big deal.

Unless you're a fetus, maybe, but the Zika virus isn't as bad as influenza.
Consumption is not a politically combative act — refraining from consumption even less so.

Probably bad news if it reaches the states that have restrictive access to abortion.  Thanks, Obama.

Well maybe they shouldn't CHOOSE to have children during a Zika virus outbreak! It's their fault if they do.

*sighs*  So glad I'm on the Pill.  Still, I hate having to postpone the baby-making until we get the all-clear.

I'm not worried about this at all. Living in Baltimore, Maryland I know any fetuses in my care have a much greater likelihood of getting shot and not any kind of virus.

I'll stop eating beef lamb and pork the same day they start letting me eat vegetarians.
