This engaging video (tragically comic) from Pathfinder International reminds us how much need there is to improve access to contraception and other reproductive health care. Worth sharing.
All of this contraception issue is nihtong more than a smooth talking political ploy in my eyes and has little to do with loving kindness towards saving babies. I have a very devout Catholic friend I can certainly say the Catholic Church is far overstepping its bounds of separation of Church and State. My friend sent me materials that were given out by her priest for her to distribute and it was pure political propaganda if I have ever seen it in my life. I was ashamed that my friend has become so brainwashed by religion that she believes that God through the holy communion of a priest is telling her how to vote. I’m sorry but not even GOD tells me how to vote and anyone who tries to manipulate or persuade someone else how to vote that isn’t running for office, or isn’t being paid by a political campaign needs to think very clearly about their intentions and motives before expressing passionate views about voting especially when mixing politics and religion and this issue of contraception and abortion. This new attempt to twist and distort the facts about contraception by political strategists into a freedom of religion issue is ridiculous. Where do you draw the line on that. At what point can I just call every law I don’t want to obey unconstitutional based on my freedom of religion . I understand the abortion issue and when we create a lottery where every person in the US must participate and they knock on your door and say Here is YOUR unaborted baby you voted for and here is your tax funding to raise the baby you wanted saved then I will be all for outlawing abortion and limiting contraception but until the people who want to outlaw it will accept the unaborted babies into their homes, it is hypocrisy in my eyes. And until then the rights of women need to and should be respected as a individual and private choice. The same people who want to intervene are the same people who also claim to want less government which I can never seem to reconcile. To me it is a bunch of manipulative politicians wanting to control peoples vote through religion, and a bunch of overly passionate holier than thou religious people believing that it is their God given duty to enforce their waning religion onto others through politics and forget about God given free will especially when it is about just forcing it on someone else and they don’t have to accept any of the responsibility.
