I am appalled at the way our government allows others to tell women what to do with our bodies. If we choose birth control, then by all means we should have the right to get it. These Religious stores have caused the government to bow down again. As a U.S citizen I believe in the separation of church and state! When a government rules and makes decisions based on threats of closure of companies because they don't agree with the way things are being done, what kind of message does that send? I don't agree with paying taxes like I do. Does that mean I should stop? Maybe the country will bow down to my need?
We have real issues that need to be addressed. It is up to the individual if they want to take birth control or not. I think we should at least give them the option. I know every child is a blessing, but if sex is only for procreation, then ask yourselves why people continue to have it without intending to have kids? There is more to intimacy than pure reproduction. Just like there is more to an individual's choice. My womb, my choice! Until you live and understand the functions of my body, then you can give me your opinion!
There are women who rely on birth control to normalize their hormone functions. PCOS sufferers, look it up! It is an actual condition. So is this not denying them that same option? No one is forcing women or men to use birth control, they are just wanting them to have the option. I would rather be handed a condom, with the option, then not to have a choice at all. Women we have to stop bowing down and letting other people tell us what our bodies need and don't need!! You never hear them tell a man that right? STOP TRYING TO CONTROL US!!! We have voices, we have thoughts! WE HAVE RIGHTS!!! Stand up! Say it loud! BE HEARD!!
