I was listening to Talk Radio this week. One of the reasons I listen to their rants is because I want to stay informed of their various strategies so that I can share them with you.
This week these Republican talking heads have been bashing Women's Rights. They are aiming their anger over a Healthcare policy which includes Birth Control coverage.
In a nutshell, this policy asks insurance companies to include birth control pills in the list of prescriptions they cover. Most insurance companies already do this. However, some don't. This leaves some women, particularly poor women, without coverage for their Birth Control.
This bill does NOT Force Anyone to BUY Birth Control pills. It does NOT Force healthcare providers to PRESCRIBE Birth Control pills. It ONLY says that Insurance Companies INCLUDE Birth Control in their list of covered prescriptions (what they term their "formulary").
The bill clearly explains any Catholic Church or Religious institution are EXEMPT. This bill merely states that those that provide Insurance/Healthcare must include Birth Control as an option in their Formulary.
The policy DOES NOT FORCE CATHOLICS TO TAKE BIRTH CONTROL PILLS! THIS IS A BIG LIE REPUBLICANS ARE PROMOTING!
Now, HINO (Hispanic in Name Only) and Vice Presidential candidate wannabe Marco Rubio is pushing a bill to STOP this policy from happening. He (and many Republicans) are advocating Birth Control be taken away from these women which will result in their becoming barefoot and pregnant!
So back to Republican Talk Radio:
In Dallas, the Republican radio station is KSKY (Case Guy). All shows are hosted by Republican Conservative extremists, even Saturday's show hosted by Chiropractors. You should have heard them.
These Republicans were discussing Birth Control and how they cause Womens' Mood Swings. They said Birth Control distorts Womens' perception. They talked about women on Birth Control choosing the wrong man and then marrying him and then when they were off the pill realizing they married the wrong man and the marriage resulting in divorce. They somehow tied all this in to the discussion regarding Healthcare providers having Birth Control on their Formulary. These Republican wackos blamed President Obama for RUINING MARRIAGES and FORCING CATHOLICS TO USE BIRTH CONTROL. (All Lies!) Not only are they campaigning against our President, they are also advocating THE END OF BIRTH CONTROL.
One of their speakers said women should never use Birth Control. They should stay home, raise children and take care of the house. (Bare-foot and Pregnant.)
These people are AGAINST WOMEN'S RIGHTS and THESE ARE THE AGENDAS THEY ARE PROMOTING. It is clear, Republicans are campaigning against the Women of Today!
