The debate over ObamaCare’s mandated coverage for contraception raged for days before I finally managed to weigh in Wednesday, pointing out the absurd distortions and disinformation being promoted by liberals. Of course, I’m a Sexist Theocratic Right-Wing Misogynistic Patriarchal Oppressor, so no one believes a word I say on the subject.
Therefore it is helpful that Alexa Shrugged (who is a woman) has decided to help fight back with two important posts on the subject:
Part 1: Controlling the Birth Control Debate
First the Planned Parenthood-Komen kerfuffle, now contraception? Who would have thought 1 year ago that we would be battling the culture wars again 9 months before a presidential election when the economy’s in the tank. Well, maybe Obama. And that’s the point.
Part 2: Debunking the Myth that
99% of Women Are Using Birth Control
There’s a meme going around in the media that 99% of women are on birth control. First of all, if this is true, clearly there is no crisis of accessibility or cost — 99% is as universal for coverage as you’ll ever get. And if 99% of women already have a way of getting or paying for birth control, then why in the world do we need to make it free through an Obamacare mandate?? But anyway, we need to examine this 99% stat.
