One more step towards banning the pill

The insanity has come to Texas in the form of one of our most insane legislators, Frank Corte. He must be sad that he hasn't been on Texas Monthly's worst legislators list since 1997, because he's pushing it hard by introducing a bill to assist the pharmacists who want to decide who gets to have birth control pills and who doesn't.

The assumption behind the "conscience clauses" is that pharmacists have a right to decide if they want to help the filthy sluts who have sex get away with it, even those filthy sluts whose husbands support their contraceptive use. Of course, as my friend who sent this to me pointed out, there are many other uses for the birth control pill besides just birth control. Of course, none of these uses is acceptable from a misogyn-, I mean, devout Christian's point of view.

For instance, a number of women use the pill to control menstrual cramps. These women are sinful hellbeasts. Menstrual cramps are God's punishment for Eve's sin. My guess is the harder the cramp, the more the woman has to repent for or something. Why teenage virgins seem to get the worst cramps is beyond me, though it probably has something to do with listening to Satanic rock records.

The birth control pill is also widely used to control acne. Again, it is sinful to control your acne. It's vanity, pure and simple. Any woman who controls her acne with the pill may think her vanity is harmless, but look at the evidence--taking a birth control pill and deliberately trying to make yourself more attractive to men at the same time is purely wanton behavior. The logic, as you can see, is airtight. There is no godly reason a woman should take the birth control pill.

If the religious right continues on this path they will run smack into mainstream public opinion. They have avoided this so far because most policies and laws meant to placate the RR have been in relatively obscure areas. Yes they have made it harder to get an abortion but middle and upper class suburban moms can still get one. The most public victory so far for them IMHO has been the abstinence only curriculum that everyone is talking about these days. So how did they get that through then without inflaming mainstream opinion ? I think basically because the middle class Baby Boomers now have teenage kids of their own ant they are absulutely , completely terrified that these kids will be sexually active , in other words to do what they themselves did when they were teenagers in the late 60s and 70s. So in steps the religious right offering what at least looks superficially like a solution and the baby boomer parents grab on to this like a life preserver in a shipwreck.
But a comprehensive ban on abortions and contraceptives will affect more than just teenagers , it will affect most adults directly and personally.So how will the RR get around that ? My optimistic answer is that the RR really think that they represent the majority of Americans and in their delusion will seriously overreach themselves and be defeated in a way that discredit them forever. My medium answer is that the RR is aware of public opinion but they figure that in a few years the bulk of Baby Boomer women will have gone through menopause so abortion and birth control will not longer be an issue to them and , being the narcissists that they are , Baby Boomers will ignore this issue completely even if it affects their sons and daughters. Between that and the perceived political apathy of the post baby boomers they think they can ram their agenda through. But if the baby Boomers care about their now adult children , if generation X,Y and Z are awakened by this assault on freedoms that they took for granted it will be like taking Homer's beer and TV away and thus will the RR plan fail. My pessimistic scenario is that something will happen , a coup , a terrorist attack , a new war that will make the US an out and out theocracy in which case majority public opinion will no longer count.

Oh yes, and other uses for oral contraceptives include management of PMS, of endometriosis, and possibly prevention of ovarian cancer. The ovarian cancer rate in long-term users of oral contraception is about 70-80% that of never-users.

I was about to say that I can't think of a snippy fundie reply to prevention of endometriosis, and then I remembered what else stops it--pregnancy! If you're pregnant all the time like god intends, then you wouldn't have that problem. Same probably goes for ovarian cancer.

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about mens male enhancement reviews) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about mens male enhancement reviews related articles and subjects.

So as far as I am concerned, I don't care if you think that I am a slut because I know that God still loves me and I am going to heaven. As far as I am concerned you are the dirtiest little whore to even think that birth control. Don't even think about praying for my soul you stupid little christian slut, I HATE YOU for even thinking about birth control. GO TO HELL, for even thinking that, skank.
