Dwight Rousu
2.5
by Dwight Rousu - Feb. 13, 2012

Fails to mention the separation of church and state. Fails to mention the Catholic hospital administration approved the birth control provisions. Did not provide the statistic that 99% of catholic women use birth control (heard on the radio, check your own sources.).

This uproar is an attempt by an authoritarian sect of celibates to force their antiquated religious dictates upon a secular government. If you don't believe in birth control, don't use it. But do not impose your religion upon my civil rights. If I would not "believe" in blood transfusions, would I have the right to prevent any employee of mine from getting standard medical emergency care? The Republicons are pandering on guns gays and god as usual.
