And again, pregnancy is something that you have to do to cause. It doesn't just happen to you while you're walking down the street except in the case of sexual abuse. Pregnancy requires actions and yet we treat it as a great imposition that women need to be protected from. It's a sickness, it's a disease, it's whatever and there's got to be a pill for it. And yet they wouldn't have the problem if they didn't do a certain thing. It's that simple.
Is Rush the GOP... certainly he is not, however his influence on GOP voters is great.
Too bad Rush is ignorant to the fact that doctors prescribe birth control pills to:
reduce cramps or menstrual pain (31%); menstrual regulation, which for some women may help prevent migraines and other painful “side effects” of menstruation (28%); treatment of acne (14%); and treatment of endometriosis (4%).
But Rush is equating Obamacare's birth control mandate to the government supporting sluts.
So yes... there are a ton of "low information" voters out there, flamed by the likes of Limbaugh... and Palin. Now, if you will excuse me, I am going to look out my window here in Michigan and see if I can view Wisconsin across Lake Michigan.
