Despite all the fussing and fighting, today is the day that contraception coverage is now mandated for all insurers. Proving that the last wail of pain is often the loudest, there’s this:
“I know in your mind you can think of the times America was attacked,” said Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.), a freshman.
“One is December 7 — that is Pearl Harbor Day. Another was September 11 — that was the day of the terrorist attack.
“I want you to remember August 1, 2012 — the attack on our religious freedom. That is a date that will live in infamy, along with those other dates.”
Unfortunately, morons like this guy are making good organizations like the Guttmacher Institute spend money on quality, accurate, videos explaining just how vitally important contraception is to the general health of our population, not to mention how contraception keeps women from having abortions:
I cannot fucking believe that this video has to be made, but there you have it. It’s 2012 and we have to explain that something used by virtually every woman is a good thing.
