Sen. Mike Lee: Women Largely Use Birth Control Recreationally That headline caught my attention and when I read the article about what this Senator said I was a little in-sensed. To me that statement told me he was dumber than a “box of rocks” when it comes to women’s issues. I have to say this blog is my opinion being voiced but I guess you could tell that from the first two sentenses. I am old enough now I do not have to worry about birth control anymore, but it is something that affects every female in this country at one time or another. Whether they use it or not is their choice and that choice has remained intact. What hasn’t remained thanks to the Supreme Court ruling is the accessibility of that control.
Hobby Lobby has posted an article stating they did not want to force their beliefs on others but that is exactly what they have done. Abortion is one thing but assessable birth control is another. When people force their way onto everyone it usually causes a rebound action sooner or later. I know that companies that have to pay for birth control are worried about their bottom line. But what do you think is going to happen with the woman who can’t afford the cost of birth control. There will be unwanted pregnancies, illegal abortions conducted in the dirty dark rooms as they were done in the past. We have put a lot of money into the insurance companies that deny us the medications we need because of their cost and now the Supreme Court has given some companies the right to deny coverage if they have religious objections. If that is not forcing employees to follow your belief, I don’t know what else it will be.
I am a middle aged female that has worked with the public most of my adult life. I have watched the poor suffer due to lack of medical care. Our medical system is broken and has been for many years. Not everyone gets the care they need. I feel the Birth Control issue was brought about by politics and I for one am sick of it. People should be our concern not Democrats or Republicans.
Thank you for reading this. I felt I needed to voice my opinion. This is a very bad situation that can lead to more bad situations. I hope God has mercy on this country because right now our future doesn’t look to bright.
