I realise this is a pro choice site so here is the link toPro-Life Wisconsin explaining their take on things. I have been trying to find the link to Bills themselves, but the place I think they are freezes my computer.
I am appalled. I work in an inner city high school, where something like 1/4 of our girls are either pregnant or have children. If I could I would put condom dispensers in every damn bathroom in the place. Hell I would hand them out like I hand out bandaids. Birth control is not permission to have sex, they do that anyway. Most teenagers who use birth control don’t use it the first time they have sex. Of course I would rather they didn’t have sex, while I was wishing on stars I would ask that they could all read too.
I don’t like abortions, but I see them as a somewhat necessary evil. I would like to see them as extremely rare, but more and more the right to life movement seems less and less about abortion and more and more about controling womens bodies.
While not venturing an opinion on what is “correct” in this case, it stikes me as a bit illogical to deny contraception to anyone, given the greater social costs (unwanted pregnancies, STDs) of the alternative.
What is the reasoning of the bill’s supporters? They can’t possibly imagine teenagers are going to become less horny and more responsible through this effort.
So you found one statement in the thread to disagree with, how do you feel about the actual Op.
The same people that are trying to take away choice are also trying to reduce the availability of Birth Control.
Do you agree with this act or do you disagree with it.
I, too, don’t have the energy any more. Things that seem so self-evident to me (like preventing teen pregnancies is a good thing) obviously aren’t . I’m not left-wing, by the way. I have never voted left, unless you consider every political party in Canada to be left, which they kinda are, compared to U.S. politics.
I’d give some credence to this, but I just went to the good Senator’s website and had a quick run through of his legislative history and he’s had no problem expanding entitlements in the past. So, I don’t think that’s it.
