Over the last couple of day, contraception has been issue. The Obama administration issued a directive requiring all employers to cover the cost of contraception. The catholic and religious communities balked at the idea of have to pay for something that they were against. And the issue seemed to be an issue of religious freedom. The Obama administration compromised and shifted the cost to the insurance companies, but the religious community, some politicians, and certain pundits are still not pleased.
You have people like Foster Friess, suggesting things like having women put aspirin between their legs, to Sandra Fluke being denied the opportunity to speak before contraception Hearing and on top of it all being called a “slut” by Rush Limbaugh. I wonder if women are taking note that some white men are trying to make decisions that I believe a women should be making for themselves. This contraception issues is no longer just about religious freedom, but it goes much further….
