The women’s contraception “debate” is a false issue 

The arguments over women’s reproductive health are just plain silly. They are not intended to help women in any way–they are being used to create fear and they have nothing to do with the facts. Planned Parenthood receives millions in taxpayer dollars every year with the intent that they will supply women with both knowledge and contraceptives. Most colleges health services do the same for their students. And here is the kicker: Pharmacies at Wal-mart, Target, and Kroeger offer generic versions of several different birth control pills for $9 per monthly supply. Somehow, I fail to see the dangerous emergency being touted by the Progressives.
