It is our personal responsibility to insure our children share in the same prosperity and freedoms we have enjoyed in our lifetime. Contraception is a red herring issue manufactured exclusively by the Democrats to take the focus off an economy that will self destruct in 2025 if we continue down our current path. Are we so selfish as to sell out our children's future for another government give away program, that will only worsen our economic situation?

Excerpts, Read More @ ABC News
“This is a fundamental matter of religious freedom and the proper role
of our federal government. It’s about who we are as Americans and
renewing our commitment to the principles upon which this nation was
founded,” Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., said in defense of the amendment.
“Unfortunately, many have tried to characterize this amendment as
denying women access to contraception. That’s a red herring, and it’s
false. We are talking about government mandates that are interfering
with conscience protections here that have long been ingrained in our
law.”


Some conservative Democrats agree with this too. Sen. Joe Manchin,
D-W.Va., announced this afternoon he will be voting for the amendment,
saying that for him it “comes down to our religious liberties.”

    Contraception Debate Diverts Attention Away From the Dismal State of our Economy
    ruthannhausman
    Typical liberal tactic: stir up the pot of discontent by bringing up subjects guaranteed to produce knee-jerk reactions from emotional people. Then the fight becomes a regular Hatfield-McCoy feud and the basic issues that should be dealt with are ignored while the parties are enmeshed in this manufactured war. Clever and effective, and that is sad, because the people who fall for it are stupid.

    And providing free contraceptives to women? Who is the genius who labeled this "free"? Oh, my, are the pharmaceutical companies going to raid their corporate profits and give these things away for nothing? Duh. I don't think so.

    Putting aside the bogus "free" issue, the use or non-use of contraceptives is a private thing, period. You can put out all the information you want but, in the end, the ultimate decision goes to the participants themselves and no one else.

    The visual picture of our highly-overpaid members of government actually taking the time out to determine that women need free contraceptives is one big, fat joke, in my opinion. And the laughable thing about it is that we are not talking about a situation whereby the women of America are exposed to this horrific disease that only this particular medical product will save their lives and although it really isn't a...

And the laughable thing about it is that we are not talking about a situation whereby the women of America are exposed to this horrific disease that only this particular medical product will save their lives and although it really isn't all that expensive, since the women are in danger for their very lives then it's up to "us," your nanny government, to see to it that you don't have to pay for these things. We are talking about something that can be remedied very easily on a case-by-case basis by the women themselves. We call that abstinence. Abstain until payday if that's your problem.

    But, in the meantime, the argument goes on. And it goes on because it successfully clouds all the really important -- nay, vital issues this country needs to deal with. Good lord, how blind and stupid can some people be not to see that point of all this frivolous debate. And I don't wish to downplay people's religious views or anything of that nature. It is just that these discussions and arguments do not belong in the political arena, period. They belong in the local communities and states. Feds don't even need to be talking about any of this crap.

    Just one more eye-opening discovery of what's really contained in Obamacare. Healthcare? Give me a break. There's not one iota of honest concern for public health in that 2600-page piece of crap. But it is one helluva genius road map for the overall destruction of America.

    You know, I just don't understand how so many people seem to think that this issue is government control over "their money" or "their religion." Don't you guys who are freaking out about this whole oral contraception thing even read any information about the actual bill? It's only to be sure that insurance companies provide coverage for bc pills, which the patient herself pays for! Once for the premium she pays to the insurance company, and again at the pharmacy counter. Nobody is forced to use the pill, for Pete's sake!!

    You're not familiar with the Constitution are you? Or apparently that the after-morning pill (aka: Plan B) is also included as a mechanism of 'birth control'. Catholics (like many other religions) are against abortion, which to them (and me) is life begins at conception - so Plan B = abortion. You say that the woman pays for her insurance. Are you forgetting that the employer pays the vast majority of the insurance and the employee a minimum? Even if that were reversed, those that hold religious beliefs (See 1st amendment) are still contributing to the actions that go in direct violation of their beliefs. So you, as others, are misrepresenting this debate at what it really is. It is a direct assault on the Constitution.

    If the left truly wants the government out of our bedrooms, then that goes for birthcontrol as well. It's a personal responsibility, it's not the governments responsibility to provide birthcontrol for what goes on in your bedroom. This is Obama's way of diverting attention from what a dismal failure he is as a President.

    He is trying distract people from the fact that his goal is not "free" contraception, but taxpayer funded abortion on demand.

    That people are also distracted from the dismal economy and ballooning deficit and national debt is just an additional benefit to Obama.

    While I don't have the anatomy to be a mother, I still think I can make some comments here. The big issue in the ObamaCare mandates isn't contraception, it's abortion. The problem is that employers of faith, like churches, are going to be forced to provide access to abortion pills and other baby killing techniques. ObamaCare is running head-on with First Amendment freedom of religion in this regard. HHS's nonsense about not making employers of faith pay for the abortion coverage in their premiums may be true factually, but it doesn't change the fact that such employers are being forced to either provide the abortion coverage, provide no coverage at all, or face a big tax penalty, or just close their doors. Purchasing non-comporting coverage outside an approved federal exchange is not an option - employers of faith will have to pay both the insurance premium, AND a big tax penalty. In all truth, the government shouldn't even be requiring that any citizen or business purchase any good or service, let alone tell them what features that good or service must contain. This is pure socialist dictatorship.

    I don't see anything wrong with providing contraceptives. We don't want families with 14-15 kids. Poor families should be provided the chance at family planning and not have to depend on the pull out method or forced celibacy in order to not have a lot of kids.

    Sigh. The media has done an amazing job at getting the small minds to think that this bill is going to provide mandatory free birth control to every American female. This is NOT the case. All President Obama is doing is making sure that oral contraception is covered under a woman's health insurance plan. That's it. The woman will be paying for her own birth control. She pays for her own health insurance premium, and she will pay for her birth control when she goes to the pharmacy to pick it up.

    And I agree that contraception should be covered. There's nothing wrong with that. It's not very expensive anyway, and it can save a lot of money and problems in the future with preventing unwanted pregnancies.

    Obama and his lackeys have been wanting an issue that would divert attention from the economy. That is why that they announced the issue of contraception and the Chatholic church in the middle of the republican primary season.

    And of course thier allies in the mainstream media have picked up the ball and ran with it. Doing thier best to make social issues the forefront of this election in a way to make conservitives stumle over the issue like they ussally do.

    Ask a woman if someone, anyone, can control her and see what answer you get?

    I'll bet in most cases, if not all, the answer will be NO! Some will even bring a slap on the face with that NO!

    Well Ladies, are you being controlled?

    Edit: In all fairness, men are falling for it too. Individual Responsibility can do wonders.

    When Democrats need a cover for the economic and social catastrophes that can be traced back to their policies they instinctively pander to their chauvinistic postmodern urban base to portray their critics as backward and repressive. That's the only reason they're bringing up a trivial issue like contraceptives. Unfortunately for them they're insulting at least 70% of the voting public.

    Great post, jr!

    Obamacare is a really neat instrament for this administration. First, two years are frittered away behind closed doors. Secondly, it is set up in such a way with all its bulk, that practically anything can be pulled out of it, or plugged into it, to keep Americans in a constant state of turmoil, confusion or dismay, about what we have to fight off or - fight for next.
