Agreed. Here's something funny, Rick met his wife in 1960, but they didn't get married until 1990. I wonder if he was a virgin until 1990?

I doubt it, but he wants us to practice what he preaches, not what he does.

If Rick's family doctor told him that any impregnation of his 48 year old wife would threaten her life, he'd use some form of birth control...or at least you would hope.

Frothy Lube Rick Sanscrotum's sweater vests are birth control enough. Nobody's doing nuttin' while thinking about them.

Still, in his defense as fair minded citizens, he did not strap the family dog on the roof of the car for a trip from Boston to Canada.

So that is something in his favor.

If Rick becomes the non-rominee candidate for repubs, he will tell the nation he was talking about "Blahhh control" and not "Birth Control".

..even though we all heard him say "Birth" not "Blah".

lol...what weasels.

Rick was 2 years old in 1960.

No, it's the US Congress, which is now trying to pass the Blunt Amendment, which would permit any employer to opt out of health care coverage for any medical issue the employer wishes.

Say, no coverage for AIDS. Or alcohol rehab. Or psychological treatment,(presumably in the case of Scientology enterprises.)

Or, wait for it, even birth control!

There are Jews in the world.
There are Buddhists.
There are Hindus and Mormons, and then
There are those that follow Mohammed, but
I've never been one of them.

I'm a Roman Catholic,
And have been since before I was born,
And the one thing they say about Catholics is:
They'll take you as soon as you're warm.

You don't have to be a six-footer.
You don't have to have a great brain.
You don't have to have any clothes on. You're
A Catholic the moment Dad came,

Because

Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

China provides government funded birth control for all women, wether they want it or not. The same went for Hitler and Jewish women. Santorum is like the flip side of the coin.

Its both. Blunt want's to allow insurance companies to deny healthcare coverage for any reason such as "we don't agree with with birth control"...or "we don't agree with using chemo for cancer so we don't want to pay for it".

Santorum is against birth control and wants to allow bills like Blunts.

I wonder if we'd see these old guys outlaw Viagra because it could encourage sex by men who God has discontinued the ability for these men to become erect, without the assistance of science.

The author of the article states this in the first paragraph, quoting Rick Santorum: "In particular, he said he would “get rid of any idea that you have to have abortion coverage or contraceptive coverage” as a government policy."

Notice "have to have...as a government policy". Neither should be MANDATED by the government.

I don't agree with his religious beliefs about contraception, but neither do I agree with the government putting more of these controls on us, the employer, or the insurance companies.

Theoretically, I would agree, but if you allow an employer to pick and choose what coverage he gives to his employees then you run into people that might say.......
"I'm a Christian Scientist, so transfusion isn't covered for my employees"
or
"I don't like 'the gays', so AIDS treatments/prescriptions are not covered"
or
"I don't think people should immunize their kids, so that's not covered for the children of my employees"
.
do you see how this is a slippery slope?
when you allow ANY religion to dictate policy, in ANY form, it will become a civil rights issue.

you can't deny women their basic rights and pretend it's about your "religious freedom". If you don't like birth control, don't use it. Religious freedom doesn't mean you can force others to live by your beliefs.

@anneutral...Agree with your posts 34 & 35...religious views should not dictate health insurance policies. However, employers have had "cafeteria" style insurance policies for years. And birth control pills have not been covered in any that I'm aware of. I always thought that was stupid when it would cost a lot less than paying for more children being born, c-sections, etc.-- not to mention they covered viagra.

Looks like an attempt to force religion, specifically Catholicism, on an entire nation of people.
