Hillary Clinton and her feminist allies are denouncing what they call a "war on contraception” being waged by the Bush administration.
"There’s a quiet war going on in America against the most basic rights of Americans to make their own personal decisions about family planning,” Clinton wrote in a mass e-mail.
"This war against contraception endangers basic American values.”
[Via The World … IMHO]
Well I guess if selfishness and an avoidance of children has become an "American value" then maybe she is right. Though considering that they keep attacking the President for not being unable to win the war in Iraq they should subsequently have no problem with a "war on contraception" by what they see as his track record. Though I guess the war in Iraq and contraception are both related. A form of contraception is pulling out early.
If only the Bush administration really had a war on contraception, instead of only some minor skirmishes. The so-called war is suppose to be evidenced by the Bush administration’s abstinence program and the FDA and not approving plan B. So I guess their policy is that everybody not only must have sex, but that it also must be contraceptive. More accurate would be to say that Sen. Hillary and many like her are engaging in a war on chastity. The idea of no sex before marriage has become more than just quaint, but something that needs to be vigorously attacked. Dawn Eden’s book The Thrill of the Chaste garnered many attacks across the blogosphere when she printed parts from one of the chapters of her book. This unfortunately is not surprising and is to be expected in our sex-obsessed culture that demands pleasure without consequences.
