    Once and for all, any American and pretty much any human alive in the US today can obtain FREE CONTRACEPTIVES.

    Ok? I'm tired of having to deal with nitwits in every single discussion about reproductive issues who claim women can't obtain birth control unless we 1. Allow abortion 2. Mandate birth control or 3. Force the churches to subsidize birth control (which includes abortion).

    On multiple occasions I have had to post information, generally to the same people (chris) (rdean) (various and assorted lesbian buddhists and the like) confirming and providing contact information for free clinics in pretty much every community in the US.

    So can we just all accept that birth control is available in the US, including for NOTHING, and move on? You can still argue other points idiotically, but please just let that one particular argument (people can't obtain birth control! OMG! However will they kill their babies????) die a natural death.

    I know you are also adverse to natural death...I'll rephrase it...

    Will you please euthanize, or abort, the mantra "women can't access birth control!"

    Birth control is a smokescreen. This is about expanding government powers. In this case, it is a two-pronged attack.

    First, forcing employers to provide a health insurance fringe benefit. Any pretensions about these new government powers driving down costs for everyone are exposed for the lies they are by the permanent institutionalization of this cost amplifier.

    Second, forcing religious people to engage in a behavior which is against their morals. Never again can the Left pretend that other people's values are important to them, because they have demonstrated they are as intolerant and immoral as it gets.

    You guys are too much.

    No one is being force to go against their morals. If you have a religious conviction against taking birth control you are not required to take it. However looks like secular society is getting tired of religious institutions forcing their morals on non-believers in the form of sub-par healthcare coverage.

    Whether free or at cost, do as your conscience dictates.

    I'm trying to figure out how the catholic church is "forcing" anything upon anyone, when they are being "forced" to provide a service they do not support?

    Really?

    Why do millions of Americans pay for birth control then? You need to get the word out

    Drug stores need to stop selling condoms....after all, they are free

    Forcing a faith-based organization to provide birth control that is against their religion is forcing them to go against their morals. I can't believe this even needs to be explained. I guess it is so the Left can keep making it about birth control and not religious freedom.

    Never again can the Left pretend that other people's values are important to them, because they have demonstrated they are as intolerant and immoral as it gets.
