If the Government intends to broaden the definition of 'women's health and well-being,' and thus the goal of the Mandate, to include non-health related concepts such as emotional well-being and economic prosperity, then it should likewise have considered the documented negative effects the widespread availability of contraceptives has on women's ability to enter into and maintain desired marital relationships. This in turn leads to decreased emotional wellbeing and economic stability (out-of-wedlock childbearing being a chief predictor of female poverty), as well as deleterious physical health consequences arising from, inter alia, sexually transmitted infections and domestic violence.

If I'm following this one correctly, using birth control causes you to be an unwed mother?  Interesting.  I mean, I get the unwed part.  Cow, milk, free, etc.  But where does the childbearing come into the picture?

I get it.

Fundamentalist Christian Leaders want to punish women nation wide for having sex for anything other than procreation.

Meanwhile, their flocks continue to avail themselves of birth control.

It also appears to suggest that women should want to marry men who  are marrying them specifically because it's the only way they can get laid.

...then it should likewise have considered the documented negative effects the widespread availability of contraceptives has on women's ability to enter into and maintain desired marital relationships.

What the hell is this even trying to say? Does the author believe that birth control is somehow permanent? Are there men out there who won't accept a woman who has previously been on birth control because they're "unclean" or something?
 
2014-03-07 04:34:01 PM  
It really bothers me when people try and make women less inclined to have sex. C'mon, some of us are still trying to get our rocks off now and again.

Like Rush demonizing "sluts." Just because he can't get it up, doesn't mean no one can. Subsidizing promiscuity is the best use of my tax dollars, ever.

You beat me to it. I was a little confused by this one myself. I was also a little confused further down how contraceptives would somehow make a woman more likely to screw around on her husband and not get caught. What would she be doing differently with her man on the side that she wouldn't be doing with her husband? I mean, if she gets knocked up, she just tells hubby it's his, as long as she isn't into that whole icky inter-racial stuff, right?

If I read it correctly, the logic goes that 'unwed single mother' status is a large indicator of female poverty.

The part where they go Derp is to confuse (quite deliberately, I would assume, given the malicious nature of the source) is that using birth control apparently makes you not have any interest in having a relationship or get married, which in turn leads to emotional injury because women only want to get married?

I don't know. Every time I think I get a hold of it it slips off it's a very well written script and the author should be proud, damn.

I mean, it's a load of shiat, but it takes some real word skill to write something so slippery.

Dude, it doesn't matter how much you trust your woman, you ALWAYS get the paternity test. That should just be a given. Unless she's a tramp and the child is obviously not yours, then no test needed. But otherwise...

It means there aren't enough white anglo-saxon protestant babies to keep the majority of voters from going brown. Even if you don't want the kid, someone is waiting to adopt.

Kids aren't necessary to be happy.
 
2014-03-07 04:47:32 PM  
I like how they set up the typical woman on birth control as some single crazed impoverished slut who wants to avoid her spiritual destiny as a blessed giver of life to children when rather, many women who really want birth control already have children and are going NOPE NOPE NOPE to any more of them.  Just like over 50% of women who have abortions already have kids.

Birth control is a big deal when you already have the kids you want and a couple is like "You know, we like having sex but seriously, we can't afford a third child when we're almost 40."

I did like the other one that says using birth control means you're more likely to engage in risky sexual behaviors, as pregnancy is no longer a consequence to fear.
That made sense; the rest were trumped with:
Back in the day, before abortions were legal and bc widely available, the most common sufferers of badly performed abortions, and infections as a result of these poor procedures were... wait for it.... married women.

Well, as a woman (because I get a say in this, right?), I hate birth control.  The side effects are absolutely horrible, and they dramatically diminish my quality of life.

There are many other ways to not get pregnant which I have utilized.  Hormone therapy isn't the only path.

Just having my say.

Birth Control is not limited to hormone therapy, it covers a wide range of things like condoms, contraceptive foams, diaphragms, hormone therapy, and the good old 'accidental' trip down the flight of stairs.

What it means is that divorce rates have gone up and marriage rates have gone down since the women gained the ability to control reproduction and earn a decent living.

ability to enter into and maintain desired marital relationships = Women don't need to have a man in their life and they don't have to stay in a bad relationships.

Only part of that is due to birth control, but they get more traction on the sex angle then they do on womens lib.

These guys just want to turn back the clock to the good old days of a more male dominated society.
