A Solution for Obama’s Contraception Dilemma

By Adele

Conservatives and religious zealots who believe some women should spend their lives pregnant are shocked, SHOCKED that Obama would mandate free access to birth control as part of healthcare reform, even in Catholic hospitals and with other groups that claim it “violates their conscience” to let women protect themselves from accidental pregnancies.

You’d think Obama was ordering all women to USE birth control, which he isn’t.

Mitt Romney, with his rich Mormon heritage of polygamy, with sister-wives producing literally HERDS of children, is all over this issue, calling it an “attack on religious liberty.”

Newt Gingrich, the newbie Catholic and likely practicing birth-control hypocrite, ditto.

As always, they ignore the REAL issue, which is…

WHAT BECOMES OF THE UNWANTED CHILDREN?

This bunch wants these babies born so they can grow up neglected, abused, and even murdered. Protect the fetus so the child it becomes can suffer unimaginably at the hands of adults. That’s the CHRISTIAN way!

Here’s my idea…

Like they do for unwanted puppies and kittens, establish kill shelters for human newborns. After delivery, they spend a week or two in the shelter (depending on space), and if nobody adopts them, they get the needle or gassed. Simple.

Babies born with obvious defects or any other problem that makes adoption a long shot get put to sleep on the spot to make room for those who have a chance.

Mitt, Newt, and the rest who refuse to face the reality that some babies are better off unborn can start stepping up to the plate. If they REALLY care about these infants — more than keeping women prisoners of their reproductive organs — they can adopt the stray babies before their time runs out.

    Well, you nailed it once again. This religious hypocrisy amazes me. They are not “pro-life” they are “pro-birth”. After you’re born, you’re on your own. And how exactly does government control of a woman’s body and her right to pro-create (or not) fit in with a “small, hands-off” government??

    Imabear, we’ve been watching some of the conservative talking heads discuss this issue, trying to stir up the outrage. To listen to them, Obama is prying all women’s mouths open and forcing birth control pills down their throats.

    But he’s only trying to make contraception affordable ONLY TO WOMEN WHO WANT IT. And in denying women this benefit, these goody-goody hospitals and others are forcing THEIR ideology on women. But they see no disconnect there. They never do, when it comes to screwing their victim du jour.

    Do they feel similar moral outrage over dispensing Viagra? If a guy’s dick doesn’t work, should man overrule God’s grand plan by pumping up the penis artificially with drugs? And what about babies born from chemically-charged sperm? Are they the spawn of Satan?

    Gee, I haven’t read anything about that.

    MSNBC said 98% of Catholic women have used contraception at some point. And a majority of Catholics are OK with birth control, because the church has its head in the sand on this and ANYTHING involving sex.

    Women should be taking to the streets in TOTAL OUTRAGE over the repeated assaults on their rights lately (Komen, we’re looking at you).

    Once the Republicans realize they’ve flushed the women’s vote down the crapper (except for their brainwashed Stepford wives), they’ll next be calling for repeal of women’s right to vote as an unnecessary luxury and intrusion of government into their lives.

    I’m picturing Saturday afternoon adoption events in malls all across America.”Yes, I know they’re twins and should stay together,but I can only care for one”

    ZM

    Once again, time and taxpayer dollars wasted on cretonous issues. I don’t want to get into the various hypocracies of religous views on life, etc. It has no place in government to begin with. Why are we going back in time when we need to be moving forward with pressing issues? It is truly a detriment to the well-being of our country that the religious contingents are so much a consideration in the vote. What happened to separation of Church and State? I do know the answers but I am just sick with the political garbage we are expected to digest.

    since when is birth control a medical issue?
    mandating such nonsense is part of why health insurance is so expensive. and of course, Viagra etc. shouldn’t be covered for same reason.

  6. adele says:

    Ms. Pelfrey, I assume you think because a woman CHOOSES to use contraception, it’s not a medical issue. I disagree, but even using your argument about the high cost of insurance, isn’t the birth of a child more expensive than one or two years’ worth of any kind of contraception — so if you’re worried about driving the cost of health insurance up, it seems to me that your argument holds no water.

  7. catsworking says:

    Annie, if birth control were an OTC drug, I’d agree with you. But since somebody decreed that the most reliable and convenient way to avoid unwanted births (condoms, the sponge, and any other readily-available so-so method aside) has to be controlled by doctors, with drug companies allowed to pump up the price as high as they please, then it becomes a medical/insurance issue.

    Maybe the answer is to make oral contraceptives non-prescription, like the Plan B pill.

  8. catsworking says:

    ZM, what a good idea!! The babies could wear little vests that say, “Adopt me.” Maybe they could be color-coded so people would know which little nippers would be getting snuffed in the upcoming week if they didn’t find a home.

  9. annie pelfrey says:

    i agree it should be OTC!
    that said- look what they’ve done to little ole Sudafed!
