Birth Control Brouhaha

09 Mar

It should come as no surprise to anyone that politicians and their parties are not always honest. Misdirection, half-truth, and ommission are tools of their trade. But in the currently popular debate over birth control, certain parties are pulling out all the stops and choosing a complete lie as their tool of choice.

The lie being spread by the left is that, because of Republicans, women are being denied access to birth control. This is simply not true. Nobody is being denied access to birth control. Anyone with a prescription can go to a pharmacy and have it filled.

The truth is that the Republicans are against Obama’s mandate that employers and health plans must provide free prescription birth control to workers. Regardless of where you stand on the morality of birth control, this country isn’t so far gone that we can’t recognize that stealing is wrong. When you force someone to give you something that doesn’t belong to you, that is stealing.

If an employer or health plan should choose to provide free birth control, then they should be allowed to do so. However, forcing a private employer or company to provide it for free is organized theft. The government of our country has blithely ignored what is constitutional in order to do what is popular.

The 5th ammendment of the US constitution [1] states that the government shall not take private property for public use, without just compensation. But in spite of this, the federal government has mandated that private property, in this case birth control, be taken from employers and health plans and redistributed to a portion of the population without compensation. To force employers who are morally opposed to birth control to pay for it was just adding insult to injury.

This is the truth that the left’s lie was designed to hide.
