Conservatives suggest defeating birth control by calling it 'abortion.' No, really.
This is another example of what I mean about what the abortion fight is REALLY about. It's not about saving babies, it's about punishing sluts. Easy access to contraception is demonstrably the best way to prevent abortions, but that is not the real goal of the conservative movement. The real goal of the conservative movement is to stop premarital sex, by punishing women who engage in it.
Obama is requiring churches to cover contraceptives in their health plans. If conservatives really wanted to stop abortions, they would be cheering this move. The fact that it's a controversy is the clearest possible proof that what I've been trying to say is true -- that the fight is so nasty and ongoing because conservatives do not want what they claim to want.
They don't give a f*ck about the fetuses, what they care about is the women. They want to stop access to contraceptives so that those sinful sluts will be punished with pregnancy as God intended.
Oh, and it's okay to lie about birth control in order to get those bitches.
