I saw this article by Carol Shea Porter over on the website Blue Hampshire Called: The GOP Birth Control Patrol. The article itself is the usual navel-gazing alarmist drivel you expect with any left leaning feminist: 'GOP wants to control women's access to contraceptives':
Their Republican leaders' intrusion into matters that are none of their or the government's business just doesn't seem real. Would one of their top two candidates for President really rail against contraception?
This framing of the argument just exemplifies how entitled these people think they are. To barrow Obama's rhetorical tick - "Let me be clear" - No one is denying access to contraceptives. The problem we conservatives have is simply who pays for it. Porter and her ilk on one hand say it should be paid for by the evil insurance companies (which of course means that it will be their customers who actually pay for it), and then on the other she laments how the GOP wants to 'get into her business'.
News Flash Carol - Obamacare is NOTHING BUT the government getting into everyone's healthcare business.
But the actual aim of the mandate is something I just don't understand. Porter is arguing that 'free' (anything but) contraceptives is a women's health issue. How is that true? I mean, it has always been my experience that having sex is an elective activity. What's next? Will insurance companies be mandated to offer dinner and drinks before these women have sex (all apologies to Greg Gutfeld of The five)?
I always hear these self-righteous feminazis yelling the catchphrase - "Keep out of my Womb." Well ladies I have one of my own:
Keep your Womb out of my Wallet!
