Liberals claim that contraception is a human right that ought to be subsidized by the government in about 18 different ways. Without subsidies, they claim, it’s impossible for some people to afford. I disagree on all fronts. It’s not a human right. It’s not the government’s job to provide. And contraception is not difficult for an even halfway competent adult to obtain. And whether you can afford it is not my problem anyway. If you cannot take financial responsibility for your sex life, you shouldn’t have one. Period.
This coming Saturday thousands of women will march on Washington demanding, in part, access to free contraception. You’ll notice that many of the people in the same march will also have signs demanding that we mind our business and stop interfering in their sex lives. Well, which is it? You can’t have it both ways. If you involve our money then you involve us. Don’t like it? OK, get your hands out of our wallets and take charge of your own affairs.
