A Woman's Reproductive Rights

Drug addicted old white men who almost certainly stopped having sex years ago should not be trying to call young women names just because they standup for their reproductive rights. Rush should remember that he is not without his own sins. I think as long as a woman respects herself and uses birth control in a responsible manner than men like Rush should just stay out of it.

As a catholic, I don’t support forcing the church to pay for birth control. Lots of catholic women use the drug for health reasons. Having too many children can kill a woman at an early age. God gave us a brain so we could use it to help ourselves avoid harm. Unless men want to stop having sex, they must stand up for a woman’s right to access low cost birth control.

Truth be told this is a small minority of crazed republicans, who just want to take the extreme view that supports these attacks on women’s reproductive rights. No rational man would ever tell his wife to stop taking birth control. Since man is supposed to be made in God’s image then I would hope he also received some of God’s common sense. Maybe all republican women should stop taking the pill for the next few months until the election is over just to prove the point.
