No republican said they wanted to outlaw birth control. If birth control is a reason to vote for Democrats, that confirms my suspicion that people who vote Democratic know nothing when it comes to economics.

Love your blog description, BTW. “This is a political blog, coming from a moderate/conservative perspective, supporting the established social norms, customs, and laws of the Western tradition.” Might as well just say “upholding and enforcing the patriarchy through passive-aggressive Tumblr posts.” Actually, upholding-the-patriarchy might be available as a Tumblr name in case you want to be more accurate.
What patriarchy? Women don’t have to get married if they don’t want to. Nor do they have to save sex for marriage. My girlfriend takes birth control. I wasn’t aware that any of the personhood bills would affect birth control. But it doesn’t matter, the right to privacy is protected in our legal traditions, which includes the right to take birth control. It’s not a rational concern.
The patriarchy is not limited to “forcing women to stay virgins and get married,” and the fact that you don’t have a basic grasp of that proves that you have no right to be writing about politics in the first place. Fuck’s sake.
And how is it “not a rational concern” to worry about birth control being taken away when I just gave you link upon link explaining why it IS a rational concern? And don’t forget that abortion is a form of birth control. If you think THAT isn’t under attack I just feel bad for you.
