Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards recently tweeted: “Nothing says ‘I love you, mom!’ like standing up for the right of mothers everywhere to get the care they need.”
Translation: “Nothing says ‘I love you, who would otherwise have been my mom!,’ like standing up for the right of potential mothers everywhere… to avoid becoming one.”
Ms. Richards claims that simply being a woman will become a “pre-existing condition” if Republicans repeal Obamacare. Note to Richards: being a woman is a pre-existing condition, much like being a man is one. And always has been.
Being pregnant is a necessary “pre-existing condition” to abortion, for that matter, Ms. Richards.
Richards stated: “The fact that mothers reproduce will now be our economic burden,” while adding that Republicans want to deny women access to adequate birth control. Whose economic burden should one’s baby be? She continued: “Needless to say, the outlook for any woman hoping to avoid unintended pregnancy for the next four years is pretty bleak.”
No, it’s not. Or it shouldn’t be. It is the easiest, most concrete thing imaginable, whether for the past four years, the next four years, or for the four hundred years preceding or succeeding us. If you’re a woman who doesn’t wish to become pregnant, don’t have sexual intercourse. It is literally that simple! If you truly, vehemently, don’t want to become pregnant, but believe you can’t possibly be expected to abstain from having sexual intercourse, what does that say about you?
Our current culture is anything but intolerant of “women’s rights,” sex, promiscuity, immediate gratification (with no consequences) and abortion. It heartily encourages casual sex, single-women-led families, entitlements, and even birth control paid for by others.
And that is an economic and social burden we all bear.
Needless to say, the outlook for anyone hoping to avoid unintended idiocy for the foreseeable future is pretty bleak.
