To try to compare birth control to genocide is horrific. Republicans, when are fertilized eggs going to get the right to drive and fly planes. The personhood nonsense--Christian Taliban--will not stop because they want to be able to control women. Sorry, it's the 21st century. Most women, including Catholics, use some form of birth control. I've noticed that the extremists who want to "take our country back", actually mean to return us to the 19th century, when women had no rights, corporations had all clout, and only the rich could make all decisions. No need for clean air, water, safety laws, voting rights. It will be a country for Koch Industries, by Koch Industries, andof Koch Industries.
Well said Mary! Totally agree.
Woah! Willful ignorance of history!
I doubt he has been to Germany, much less Auschwitz. It's unbelievable that they can get away with stuff like that without major backlash.
I don't think it's about controlling women exclusively, or really much at all. It's just a means to an end. Women certainly might have a more imperative interest in maintaining all of their reproductive rights because they are the ones that carry a baby for nine months; however, many many men also do not want the woman they're with to get pregnant. I think it is simply that the Christian right is trying to peel back rights starting with the most recently gained, i.e. abortion, then going backward from there. What the Christian right is against is not abortion but consequence-free sex... Otherwise, they would support birth control because that is the one thing that actually lowers abortion numbers. Believe me, first thing to go will be abortions, then the morning after pill, then regular birth control pills, then non pill contraception, particularly condoms. I used to be Catholic and know very well what they preach. Any and all sex that does not allow for the potential for procreation (so no forms of birth control allowed AT ALL) is a sin. Hell, even masturbation is a horrid act to these people, and I imagine any sexual act that isn't regular intercourse is seen the same way as well.
