Why is contraception treated as “Women’s Preventative Care” in the ACA? The only thing it “prevents” is pregnancy. Last time I checked, pregnancy wasn’t a disease or disorder. I don’t doubt that there are hard core feminazis that consider pregnancy a disease, but the vast majority of the population considers it normal.
Contraception isn’t for preventing diseases or disorders. It’s to allow you to have sex purely for pleasure. The methods at issue in Hobby Lobby in fact have no other purpose. Sex purely for pleasure isn’t a medical goal, any more than Hawaiian vacations are. So let’s face it — we are saying that women are so fundamentally horny and out of control that if we don’t give them free birth control, they won’t spend the $12 on the pills themselves, and will instead just get pregnant.
Here’s my problem — why doesn’t this philosophy also apply to Viagra? Erectile Disfunction, after all, is an actual disorder, unlike pregnancy. If our goal is to say that having sex purely for pleasure is a necessity, then Viagra should be at the top of the list. It not only allows sex for pleasure, but also for procreation.
Contraception is there purely to enable sex for pleasure. So why not go all the way? Why aren’t boob jobs free also? You should get big fat titties along with your IUD. After all, let’s make sure that you actually get the sex to go along with the birth control – we don’t want to waste taxpayer subsidy dollars. If we are doing free IUDs, then big ass titties and rock hard viagra super boners should be free too.
