Now, I don't have to tell you how fucked up this is, do I? How restricting access to contraception increases the number of abortions, and, quite aside from that, rolls back women's rights as human beings by decades? No, I didn't think so. Normally we don't talk politics here, but kids, I get a little upset when people with lower IQs and less general competence than my humble self tell me I'm just a walking incubator, not a real person, or that only the people built on the penis-having chassis are allowed to have sex without being punished for it. So there we are.
What can we do? Probably not much. I signed a petition addressed to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, but that office is not famous for responding to public pressure. I'll be writing a personal letter later on today to same Secretary, and also to anybody I have the vaguest feeling might represent me in the legislature. I'm telling you lot. I'll also be going back to making a small, but regular donation to Planned Parenthood. I encourage you to take similar steps.
And furthermore, I'm gonna reiterate my #1 rule in this matter: Just Say No to Sex With Pro-Lifers. "Aw, honey, you're against contraception? Well, I guess I won't be screwing you until I feel like having a baby, then. Sorry about that."
