Obama Has It Right on Birth Control (Can You Say Barf Alert?)
Townhall.com ^ | February 14, 2012 | Rachel Marsden

Posted on 02/15/2012 2:37:54 PM PST by Kaslin

I can't believe that I actually agree with something President Obama has done. Granted, I'm one of those conservatives who has never subscribed to the full-meal-deal checklist, preferring to critically consider whether each of my positions is the most logical and sensible given the available information and my own values. Usually that process results in coming down on the "right" side of things. In this case, though, I somehow find myself in the odd position of agreeing with Obama and being rather miffed at his opponents.

The president's new birth control plan would insure coverage of women's birth control without co-payments or deductibles. Sounds fair, especially given that men's anti-impotence Viagra treatments have been covered by insurance plans for years. Some, including CNN's Jack Cafferty, have argued that impotence is a medical condition but birth control for women is optional. Really? This implies that sex for men is mandatory at all costs -- to the point of paid hydraulic assistance, if necessary -- yet women should be able to take it or leave it. But pregnancy is a medical condition -- one that some of us want to avoid as much as men do impotency. And in neither case is "just don't have sex" a realistic solution for any halfway normal human being with reproductive drive in its prime.

Others argue that men aren't getting their birth control paid for, so why should women get theirs covered? News flash: It's the woman's inescapable lifelong burden. Women have babies, regardless of whether the man sticks around. If she gets pregnant, the costs are hers to bear -- or, if she can't manage, the state's. A few extra dollars invested to prevent the creation of future welfare recipients -- not to mention abortions -- seems like a good trade-off.

Leave it to Facebook, that Petri dish of blowhards, to unveil some doozy responses, like, "Most women on birth control still get pregnant, so this is a waste of money." Given that women can live their entire lives on birth control and never end up pregnant, I'll just go ahead and call you-know-what on that. Another added, "Taking birth control to prevent pregnancy is like wearing a bulletproof vest to prevent yourself from getting murdered." Guess what? If a "bullet" gets through with one form of birth control, there's another called the morning-after pill that will prevent it from doing "full damage," if you get my drift. Which is all the more reason to ensure its accessibility.

Yet another argument was, "Why do I have to pay for other people's sex?" Look, by joining a health plan -- privately managed or otherwise -- you're already paying for other people's smoking, sex or lack thereof, alcohol overconsumption, poor food choices and so on. What does it matter if you're paying for the schmuck down the street to shove that extra donut into his face, or for a college student to have safe sex? If any religious entities object to birth control for women they don't know or support, perhaps they could first decline tax exemptions on the basis of benefiting from the same public pool into which these same women pay taxes?

Speaking of which, it's the 21st century. Can we not accept that both men and women are driven by sex as much as by food, and that any differentiation between the genders in this area has long been socially mandated through shaming and derogatory labeling of women who enjoy this very basic human and survivalist drive as much as men do? It's difficult enough for society to collectively accept sex as being just as normal as eating -- but it is. Both are basic, innate pleasures of being human. Yet we're bombarded with food shows, food magazines, food discussion forums, food classes, endless food banter at house parties. Just try doing any that with sex in polite company. Food and sex are on exactly the same level for us as human beings in our basic drive for survival.

There's still an overall taboo around sex that promotes rampant ignorance and prohibits rational consideration of its rightful place in our lives. Hopefully moves like this that destigmatize non-reproductive sex will take us one step closer to breaking that taboo so we can enjoy, among other things, a better quality of political candidates who aren't automatically disqualified for admitting they enjoy sex just for the fun of it.

I somehow got on the dnc mailing list when I did a poll about how bad romney is. I decided not to unsubscribe so I could see first hand what the dimocrats are up to. So this is what I got today. By the way, I sent a reply saying:

“Must the party lie to win? I researched this and found what your saying is totally false.”

email from the DNC
Linda —

This is just unconscionable: Republicans in Congress are trying to make it legal for ANY employer to deny birth control coverage to their employees.

Yes, you read that right. Republicans are on track to give corporations the power to deny women access to health care.

The vote is set for this week — we must act IMMEDIATELY.

We must raise $50,000 by midnight tonight to get activists mobilized and ads up and running in Republican districts about this atrocious assault on women’s health care.

Will you contribute $3 or more right now to our urgent Women’s Health Rapid Response Fund?

We can’t afford to fall short and delay taking action for another day. Women across the country deserve to know that right-wing Republicans intend to take women’s health care back to the dark ages. Please give what you can today.

Congratulations, feministas. You have finally succeeded in becoming exactly what you have railed against...a complete sexual object unworthy of consideration as anything more. It is the only place going full circle can end and there it is.

Breathtaking in its stupidity. On the one hand, women are self controlled, intelligent, able to make "choices" and are capable of anything. On the other hand, even "halfway normal" women are unable to keep from having sex, married or not. Only abnormal people can refrain from having sex, even for a short time.

A Conservative just has to answer any Social Conservative Issue as follows:

You can do whatever the heck you want. But do NOT make your fellow citizens pay for YOUR CHOICES. Your choices are NOT my business and most importantly NOT the Government’s business. As soon as you accept Government Handouts via Government Programs, the Government will dictate to you how to behave; what toilet to use, what light bulb to use, what text book to use, what crop to plant, what health care choices you have, etc. etc. Aren't you uncomfortable laundering YOUR hard earned dollars through the DC Mafia? I know I am and I am willing to fight for your take home pay and your freedom to live life the way YOU CHOSE.

The OBOTS know they've lost the vote of the young women, only 53% of whom are employed ~ when normally over 75% would be employed.

They imagine these young women who can't afford insurance are going to be happy to get free female condoms.

Hmm. Bet they'd like jobs much better ~ they clean out the Safeway then, with change to spare.

Now, calm down Rachel. Nobody is saying you can’t have all the fun you want. The issue isn’t sex. The issue that some basic moral teachings of the Roman Catholic Church have been disregarded by requiring Catholic organizations to pay for contraceptive practices and abortion, which the Church considers to be mortal sins. (And this position is so well-known that it is impossible to believe that whoever wrote this part of the law did so ignorantly.) The issue is also whether the Catholic Church, or any other like-minded body, will have its First Amendment rights protected to teach and practice its faith without government interference.

Let’s deal with something less incendiary than sex. If the goverment ruled that the use of incense violated indoor air quality standards, or that receiving communion from a spoon, or drinking from a common chalice, were unhygienic, or that circumcising Jewish boys was a form of mutiliation, or that reading something like “The Late, Great Planet Earth” in Sunday school is emotionally scarring to young people, do you think the government should have the power to force the change of these practices?

Rachel’s conscience (or lack of) is good enough for her - so it should be good enough for all. Why would the Catholic church know more concerning the leading of the risen Christ than some lay columnist?

In republican Roman society, the father could (and sometimes did) kill his adult sons if they, in his opinion, did not measure up. But he did it at his own expense, he didn’t bill his neighbors.

this is B/S this is not just about contraception this is about the constitution and making Catholic hospitals etc do abortions sterilization and form there it will lead to telling Catholics etc that they have to have a female homosexual

YET AGAIN our side and even some on here fall for the lefts talking points, the MSM talking points,

let us all stop saying contraception as that issue is popular with women , this is about more i.e. abortions at hospitals, etc

the left is shaping this issue and we are letting them, this is not just about contraception, it is about hospitals doing abortions, sterilazations etc, this leads to female homosexual Priests based on discrimination laws.

I’m sick of the left calling bills like the dream act and we repeat it, the left now uses contraception and we just focus on this

Our side is so frigging dumb that we cannot even figure the basics out in this fight as we always let the left dictate the fight and they get the message out while our side look stupid and our candidates the dopes they are stand there and repeat the lefts talking points by using the contraception issue and not the abortion or where this will go and it is high time to point out the first amendment too

To be an actual conservative with a column one needs to be at least mildly conversant with economics. If the service is “free” that just means that everyone who pays premiums is paying for it, including the bishop and the parishioners. In fact they are paying for it for everybody instead of just for themselves. It is not an improvement. If one is compatible with abortion and contraception being the norm in a civilized society then what is one doing writing for a putatively conservative site like Town Hall?

This is an article skimming over a host of issues that evidently haven't been thought through in a critical manner by the allegedly conservative author.

First, it is nonsense to pretend that the HHS mandate had something to do with birth control accessibility. Contraceptives are already at the point of total market saturation. You can ”access” them for free at every County Health Department, every University Student Wellness Center, and every Gay Men’s Park ‘n’ Spark, and for about the cost of a Hershey bar at every Wal-Mart, every Food City, every truck-stop and every Bubba’s Beer and Bait.

They couldn’t be more accessible if they bagged them up with the M&M’s.

There is no possibility of a challenge to contraceptive accessibility, which no conservative candidate ---Santorum or anybody else -- could curb any more than he could curb the dewfall.

Second, it’s certainly not an issue of “choice.” All users are choosers, and don’t need my tax money or my online banking password in order to do it. There's no reason for this to be a public issue, because it is a private choice of goods and services that can be regulated very well by the market, especially if (as the author says) there is overwhelming public demand for it. Pay for your own chewing gum, and welcome to it, honey.

Third, we’ve got these truly existential issues of the flogged and prostrate global economy, the shredded Constitution, the disastrous foreign and military policy decisions of the past 4 years, the Obamunist tyranny, and self-described "conservative" pundits are going to respond to the Democrat tom-toms and start chanting, “the Republicans are gonna grab my NuvaRing”?

Please. This is misdirection. And it’s so obvious it makes the "My First Crayola Pack" look subtle.

The president's new birth control plan would insure coverage of women's birth control without co-payments or deductibles. Sounds fair, especially given that men's anti-impotence Viagra treatments have been covered by insurance plans for years.

I keep hearing this argument, but they always fail to mention that there is usually a very, VERY LARGE co-pay for Viagra. So these IDIOTS are arguing that since men have to pay for Viagra, women should get abortion inducing pills for FREE? HUH?!?!

And then last, but not least - this FOOL says that sex is as basic to humans as food. So, what next does she thinks the President should be able to force MacDonalds to give away FREE food to female customers? The level of incompetency in liberals isn't just in basic life functions, they are really bad when trying to articulate one of their insane ideas for an American Utopia!
