No free contraception? We’re all going to die!

Next week the supreme court will hear the case of Hobby Lobby vs. Sebelius, a case which could have a great impact on the direction of religious liberty in America. Here’s the official description of the issue:

“Whether the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA), 42 U.S.C. §§ 2000bb et seq., which provides that the government “shall not substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion” unless that burden is the least restrictive means to further a compelling governmental interest, allows a for-profit corporation to deny its employees the health coverage of contraceptives to which the employees are otherwise entitled by federal law, based on the religious objections of the corporation’s owners.”

Hobby Lobby owners object to the use of contraception based on their religious beliefs, and they don’t want to be part of providing them to people. Simple enough, right?

Turns out some people aren’t okay with their access to free birth control being taken away.

Oh no! Not my contraception!


No free contraception?!!?!?!?!?! It’s the end of the woooooooooooorld!

Sorry, this isn’t a funny issue 🙂 But how hard is it to understand that you’re not entitled to free contraception? Planned Parenthood is making a big deal about how this decision should be between you and your doctor, not your boss.

But guess what? If companies chose to not cover contraception in their insurance plan, you are still perfectly free to march yourself down to Walmart or Walgreens and buy yourself a lovely device or carcinogen. Yay!

You see, eliminating contraception from insurance plans doesn’t mean you can’t use it. It just means you have to be a grown up and pay for it. That should be common sense. And guess what? Many people agree. here’s one woman’s take on it:

“Medical insurance is for emergency visits and check-ups, and most contraception isn’t a medical necessity or required to maintain your health. Just because something is costly doesn’t mean you can cry foul, try and deem it a right, and demand that someone else (the deep, endless pockets of corporations or other taxpayers) pays for it.”

We don’t get actual life-saving medical care for free (think blood pressure medication or diabetes treatment), so why should we get contraception (a purely elective medication/device which halts the natural function of your body) at no cost?

Riddle me that, Planned Parenthood.

The Mother of Birth Control: See for Yourself

Margaret Sanger, the woman responsible for much of the development of the modern birth control pill, was a terrifying woman. Not only did she want to make the world dependent on birth control, but she wanted to exterminate “undesirable” (black, minority) people by forcing sterilization, birth control, and family size limits. The woman had some terribly twisted views of the human person. See for yourself in this interview:

Bearing the Burden of Contraception

Skip to 2:05 in this video, and watch Obama’s response to this question from a viewer:

“What can you say about a healthcare bill that’ll mandate insurance companies to provide birth control, sterilization, etc. to employees of Catholic universities, hospitals and churches since this goes against the Catholic religion?”

What can he say about it? First thing he says: religious freedom is critical, it’s what we were founded on. Right. Second: we exempted religious institutions, but wait! “Big” Catholic hospitals, etc. employing “a lot” of non-Catholics and receiving “a lot” of federal money have to cover contraception because it would not be “fair” for their employees to have to pay for it themselves.

Come Again??

It wouldn’t be FAIR to make people pay for medically unnecessary pills? Huh? If THAT’S not fair to make people pay for, then I think it’s high time people started paying for me to have an unnecessary car, mansion, haircuts, pedicures, and prime steaks every. single. night. Also add a years supply of Yougurtland, and a season pass to Disneyland. Make sense? I didn’t think so. You see, it’s stupid to force people pay for other people’s fancies. You want to drive a three million dollar car? You have to buy it. You want to eat expensive organic food? You have to buy it. You want to get plastic surgery? You have to buy it. You want to use contraception? Um, taxpayers have to pay for it…..WHAT?!?!

No one is entitled to contraception. And to go even farther, absolutely no one is entitled to contraception for free.

If you really want to know what’s not fair, I’ll tell you what: forcing anyone to violate their conscience, and/or their religious beliefs. Freedom is what America was founded on. It’s time to re-claim our freedoms, and speak out against this nonsense.
