She's a law student and women's rights advocate. I'm sure she has ideas and opinions on lots of issues. But they are just that - ideas and opinions. She's educated and experienced on these issues, just because she weighs in on one topic - women's contraceptive rights - doesn't mean she can't also have other ideas and opinions. Or that she is a threat to the American insurance industry, mom, baseball and apple pie.edit on 6-3-2012 by KillerQueen because: (no reason given)
Georgetown is the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institute of higher learning in the United States. Jesuits have played a significant role in the growth and evolution of Georgetown into a global research university deeply rooted in the Catholic faith. Georgetown’s Jesuit tradition also promotes the university’s commitment to spiritual inquiry, civic engagement, and religious and cultural pluralism. The Jesuits are members of the Society of Jesus, an international religious community which was founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola in the 16th century. Today, Jesuits continue to enrich the university through their work as scholars, researchers, administrators, chaplains and counselors.

Under the rules of the Roman Catholic Church, the birth control pill has always been ok to take if there is a medical condition (as diagnosed by a medical doctor) that warrants it. In the 1970's one of my friends had to take it for an illness. And insurance will pay for it, always has.
Having an illness is different from choosing to have sex. So, people get to have their sexual choices paid for. If they get VD from those choices, will THAT be paid for? Herpes? AIDS? And who pays?
Now, the pill can have really bad side effects and CAN cause problems down the road. I choose to take the pill for 20 years, then later I have reproductive problems. Who pays for that?

Oh and that women and minorities vote.
So how about we give you guys Texas, Arizona, Mississippi,
Alabama, Idaho, Oklahoma, Virginia, the Dakotas, Kentucky,
Tennessee, Florida, Kansas and the Carolinas as a start?
All Christian, all white, no birth-control or abortions.
Don't let the door hit y'all on the way out.

Can't really listen to Rush where I am located. So what he said was moot.

It's so typical though.
Rush calls a woman a whore and y'all get mad at her.
And I know you may not feel that way Beezer but many do.
Oh and no need to build fences.
