Now that Social Conservatives are applauding, and support this: Trump to roll back ObamaCare contraceptive mandate while, simultaneously, applauding, and supporting this: House passes 20-week abortion ban They need to give up any pretence that their goal is anything short of ensuring that women are reduced to nothing more than baby-making procreation machines. Now, some on the right are going to run in here, and whine about "free birth control", "Why should I pay..." blah, blah, blah. The problem is that the Contraception mandate wasn't about free birth control, and wasn't about government provided birth control. It was about requiring that employers insure that health coverage offered to their employees - which employees actually pay for - include provisions for birth control. So, it isn't free, and you aren't paying for dick. Now, I'm certain that Republicans would love everyone to review these actions as separate, and unrelated - which is why they don't normally do things like this, at the same time. That way, they can justify removing birth control access with, "Whaddoyucare? You can always get an abortion". And the typical response to the abortion issue is. "Why should the woman get a do-over, if she's too irresponsible to use her `free' birth control," It's kinda delicious that Republicans were incompetent enough to do both of these things, at. the. Same. Time. It removes from them the ability to use either of those disingenuous arguments. Which leaves us with only the thing that we knew all along: Social Conservatives expect women to be nothing more than baby-making, reproductive procreation machines, and living incubators.
