Who uses birth control? Irresponsible people, says state senator

While discussing women’s reproductive health and the government’s role in adminstering health care, a Republican state senator said he believes birth control is used by people “who don’t necessarily want to act responsibly.”

State Sen. Pete Kelly is pushing for a state-wide effort to combat and prevent fetal alcohol syndrome in Alaska by placing state-funded pregnancy test in bars, restaurants and private businesses. But when asked if he would offer the same resources for birth control, Kelly said he does not believe in increasing access to contraception because “the thinking is a little opposite.”

And who does he want to be responsible for purchasing other people's pregnancy tests?

That's right, Dear Alaskan Freepers--you and every other taxpayer in your state.

Because, you know, Personal Responsibility.

Because why should he have to pay if he impregnates someone and why shouldn't he take advantage of bribes from pregnancy test manufacturers?

Whoops. Naturally, he's only thinking of all of you, Dear Taxpayers. I'm sure there's no personal interest involved.....

Why do Republicans have this ‘foot in mouth’ problem over this issue. Just say it’s not up to gov’t to control our health care, & every individual should be able to buy an insurance policy that suits their individual needs. Period.

They should understand that they’re being deliberately baited. They shouldn’t take the bait.

This is what essentially defines the dif between Leftists and conservatives. Leftists are irresponsible, promote irresponsibility, and want the responsible ones, the conservatives, to pay for the consequences of their irresponsibility.

The culture of contraception is the culture of human waste and irresponsibility. This is a true statement.

Ergo, those who contracept are those who are irresponsible.

Its pretty easy to see that once people started separating sex and reproduction, the definition of marriage became something anyone can redefine.

Why do Republicans have this ‘foot in mouth’ problem over this issue?

A large majority of politicians only pursued office because they wanted to use the power of government in a sociopathic way to tell other people how to behave. They aren't going to miss a chance to do what they came for, even if it doesn't play well on TV.

It’s not “foot in mouth”, in my opinion—they really don’t believe government should NOT be involved in such issues.

We need to stop fixing problems.
We need to stop helping people.

Strange things to say, I suppose, but this has become very obvious to me. When I look at Obama I see someone who has (disastrously) decided to help everyone and fix everything.

Government needs to back off and let people stand or fall on their own. Force them to be responsible by refusing to fix their problems. We would have a couple bad decades — but how many bad decades have we has since 1965 and the Great Society???

Irresponsible and stupid people will grow in number, as they have been doing, for as long as we allow government to help them and “fix” their problems.

It’s time to say, “So what? Deal with it.”

(*sigh*) This should be good for a couple more Democrat "War on Women" editorials.

I feel like our whole nation is ruled by a collection of frustrated former high-school student council failures and HOA control freaks.

I understand what you are saying but this is the type of questions which will destroy candidates.
GOP running against Udall in Colorado Senate will get similar questions in the next 6 months.

Perhaps what should bother us more is the percentage of statists in office, as opposed to the flavor of statist—Democrat or Republican.

The sooner we tire of ALL statists and cease to justify or defend their behavior, the sooner our nation improves.
