I find it absurd that we are debating the right a woman has to control her ability to conceive or not to conceive a baby. Birth control is used to prohibit conception of an unwanted pregnancy. I cannot understand why the very people who do not support abortion, want to eliminate a medication that would prevent an abortion happening in the first place. Doesn't it make more sense to do everything we can to help women decide how and when to become a parent? How can this be nothing more than a women's health issue?
I have lived through the time when women's rights were being debated. I grew up with a sense of power over my own destiny. As a mother of two daughters, I am sickened with the idea that they may have to re-fight something my mother's generation had won for me.
Some say that the president started this by requiring religiously owned businesses that provide health insurance to its employees cover contraception. I wonder if those businesses approve coverage of erectile dysfunction medication. Wouldn't that be hypocritical as well as immoral?
These backward thinking people need to stop trying to stir up ridiculous topics to deflect looking at what is really happening in this country. How dare the ultra conservative politicians and media spin an otherwise non-issue into a divisive, moralistic subject to get peoples backs bristled. Good idea, lets divide this nation even further.
Come on people, lets start being logical for a change!
