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.
