Oh he is advocating domestic abuse in the other thread.. As for birth control, one of the biggest hurdles women face is access to birth control. Between laws that permit pharmacists and doctors to not supply or prescribe them on religious grounds, to the cost involved for women who are uninsured, it is not always easy. Remember the panel convened by a bunch of men who wished to discuss birth control? And the young woman who was publicly abused for stating that it should be affordable and should be covered for all women to access it? There is a concerted effort to make birth control even harder to access. Not to mention the lack of sex education and the fact that girls are less likely to be taught about the options available when it comes to birth control, leading to many poor and disadvantaged women not being aware or being able to access it. Yet we know that access to free birth control reduces unplanned and unwanted pregnancies. The same applies to emergency contraception. This should be widely available to women. Yet there is a growing movement against that as well, with many pro-lifer's referring to it as an abortion. The classic is the claim that using IUD's murders 'babies' because fertilisation (and thus life) commences in the fallopian tube and the IUD prevents the implantation of the "child" into the uterus, and thus, it is murder..
