A little discussion is going on with regard to the health care bill known as Obamacare. Seems that birth control will be available to women at no cost to them. The article claims that the birth control will be free but it is not free because someone (taxpayers) must pay for it.
I do not have a problem with contraception and if people want to use it that is their choice but I have a problem with them not having to pay for it. I do not want to pay for their birth control. It is not my responsibility to pay for their birth control, it is theirs.
Senator Barbara Mikulski, the troglodyte from Maryland, says that it is clear that family planning was meant to be included as preventive medicine. She wrote that amendment so she should know what she meant but the larger question is, why didn’t she just write it in plain language so there would be no confusion? She wrote it so she could have clearly spelled it out. Instead, she failed to mention it because she knew it might have led to opposition that would have derailed Obamacare.
Here is an idea. If you want birth control just keep a picture of Mikulski in your bedroom or carry it with you and look at it when you feel like having sex. That will be enough to remove any desire to have sex.
The Catholic Bishops oppose the “free” birth control because they consider birth control to be a life choice and not preventive medicine since pregnancy is a healthy condition.
The Catholics have no say in the matter. That religion’s leaders take positions based on how they feel at any one time. They continue to support politicians who support abortions including partial birth abortion, the brutal murder that occurs seconds before a child is born. The doctor stops the kid in the birth canal, cuts a hole in his head and sucks his brains out. A dead, brainless child is delivered.
The Catholics continue to support people who are in favor of these things. The Catholics supported Obama and he believes in allowing children who are born alive after an unsuccessful abortion to be left alone to die.
Where were the Catholic leaders on that one? Supporting Obama.
The Catholic leaders have no say in any of this. They continually do things contrary to their teachings for political gain. I guess they, like Saul Alinksy, believe the ends justify the means.
No matter what, the leaders of the Catholic church are one of the last groups of people I would turn to for guidance on moral issues.
“Free” contraception is not free. We taxpayers have to pay for it.
The picture of Mikulski is much cheaper.
Never surrender, never submit.
