Put Free Birth Control In the Water Supply

Yes please:

But is birth control preventive medicine?

Conflicting answers frame what could be the next clash over moral values and a health law that passed only after a difficult compromise restricting the use of public money for abortions.

For many medical and public health experts, there’s no debate.

“There is clear and incontrovertible evidence that family planning saves lives and improves health,” said obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. David Grimes, an international family planning expert who teaches medicine at the University of North Carolina. “Contraception rivals immunization in dollars saved for every dollar invested. Spacing out children allows for optimal pregnancies and optimal child rearing. Contraception is a prototype of preventive medicine.”

Natch, there’s Republican fail all over this story:

Jeanne Monahan, a health policy expert at the conservative Family Research Council, said her group would oppose any mandate that lacks a conscience exemption for moral and religious reasons. She said there’s “great suspicion” that a major abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, is leading the push for free birth control.

Okay, yet again, let’s take crazy people at their word. A major abortion mill devoted to the frequent and gleeful killing of little innocent souls is leading the fight for free birth control … in order to prevent women from getting knocked up … which will lead to fewer abortions in their grisly houses of death … which leads to profit?

I’m confused. Is birth control a secret way to have more abortions? Have you all been keeping this from me all this time?

  1. Honest to goodness, I’d love to see a form of safe, effective, male birth control put into the water supply. Men who wanted to father children would have to show that they are able to support them, pass a physical, take a parenting course, get their wive’s permission, and be given a drug that allows their sperm to reach an egg. Sounds like a win/win to me.

  2. It all makes sense if you believe birth control IS abortion, which a lot of the hard-liners do.

    Well, it’s the Xristian Anti-Sex League at it again. (I wonder why they think sex is so evil? After all, God created it. So are they saying this was a BAD idea of His’n?)
    I guess they’d only really be happy if all men were castrated at birth, and all women sterilized–babies to be grown in Petri dishes or something. Then they’d finally do way with all that nasty old sex that makes them so itchy and uncomfortable.
    Of course, they could save us all the trouble, and sterilize THEMSELVES, so that maybe Stupid would die out…

    Controlling the means of production requires controlling women.
    Corporate America burns through a lot of those human resources and so it is every woman’s duty to produce more resources or die trying in order to keep the labor cheap. That way they can insource all those jobs they outsourced and make even higher profits for the corporate class.
    It doesn’t get much more obvious than that.

    Athenae, you expect them to make any rational sense?
    Okay, okay, if you REALLY want to understand them, I’ll lend you the ball-peen hammer. Smack yourself in the head with it, hard, about a dozen times, until your ears are ringing and you’re seeing triple: that’s the voices of angels and the vision of the trinity.
    And then it will all be clear to you, just before you pass out with irreversible brain damage.
    Feel better now?
