Rush is right. The Democrats are trying to resurrect the war on women to distract from how terrible Obama has been doing in the last couple of weeks. And in this example, Sharpton has on woman who is trying to justify insurance-mandated birth control by suggesting women will make more money (read not have children) if they have ‘early access’ to birth control (via Townhall):
The funny thing is they already have ‘early access’ to birth control. Hello Wal-Mart! Hello Target!
Also, isn’t it interesting that in this false argument lies the assumption that people are just going to make bad choices? Sure they won’t say that so blatantly, but isn’t that the implicit argument here, that women are just going to have sex and end up with babies that keep them from being successful?
Whatever happened to personal responsibility? Why must I subsidize the bad behavior of someone else?
Santorum is right that the decline of the family unit has lead to this and that is exactly where the country needs to look to begin to solve these problems. Not by mandating that I buy women birth control.
