Now the Washington Post is singing my song. I have been advocating contraception as the best tool to cut poverty my entire adult life. Somehow, this message always gets diluted into advocacy for sexual empowerment or irresponsible sexual conduct. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Conservatives: Yes. You. The very thing you eschew and spend so much time fighting might just be the answer to your prayers. Contraception leads to less welfare, less abortion, less ignorance, less incarceration. The list goes on.
Contraception has to be cheap, reliable and easily assessable to those who use it. Think about this when you want to defund Planned Parenthood and other places that provide contraception and other medical services without judgement and without asking too many questions.
In the long run, it will be money in your pocket.
