John Boehner urged to drop the contraception controversy
In the year 2012 this issue will not go away. UFB. I simply do not understand why we are still having a discussion over contraception. It should be a part of health care. Period. It should be in every grocery, drug and Target-type store.
I think maybe too much is taken for granted by some of you young people. FYI, ‘Young People” covers a lot of decades if I am saying it. When I was a girl/young woman it was an issue. It shouldn’t be now. I have passed the torch. You folks have to get out there and fight for it yourself. Censored and I both did it for our generation. Frankly, we are now more worried about defending upcoming social security.
Your reproductive rights are in serious danger. No one commented on the ERA. That speaks volumes, right there, that you don’t think it can happen to you. Can one of you imagine at age 20 being told you had to have parental permission to get contraception? That’s just the way things were. The old time TV sets weren’t just a prop. It looks like things are headed right back that way.
Don’t worry whether you like a president or not. You will never have to rub elbows with that person. Think Supreme Court appointment. That is any president’s true legacy. A Supreme Court Justice is a gift that keeps on giving and giving and giving, over the decades. Men, if you have daughters, do you want them to have to come ask you for permission to get contraception at age 20? Didn’t think so.
It is hard for many of you folks under 55 to even imagine what some of this would be like. Everyone is used to being their own boss about such issues, which you should be. However, that could all come to an end. You all have been warned.
