If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it… We want you post the videos online so we can all watch

President Obama’s re-election strategy: “I might suck, but they suck much worse!” My sentiments exactly.
This year, the GOP has decided not to let anyone who exhibits even a smidgen of intelligence or honesty run. It is the race to the least vile and abhorrent. Amongst all the clowns, Gingrich and Perry take the cake. Huntsman has a very lackluster candidacy and seems like he should belong in the Democratic party, and Santorum is a hypocritical and loony Christian fanatic. I ultimately think that it will come down to Paul, who is suddenly being touted as some sort of hero and Romney, who will say anything to win. I will be outlining and comparing these two in this article.
You all make science a laughing stock. You present science and facts just to present your viewpoint

Three weeks ago, federal guidelines approved insurance companies to cover birth control with no co-pay costs. Predictably, conservative Christians have been up in arms over this issue (excuse the pun).
Sandy Rios compares birth control, and counseling for abuse to manicures and pedicures in this clip: “We’re $14 trillion in debt and now we’re going to cover birth control, breast pumps, counseling for abuse? Are we going to do pedicures and manicures as well?” She has serious problems with women having greater access to birth control, because according to her, they have more of an incentive then to become more sex-crazed. Indeed, she looks at babies as a deterrence to women becoming this way: “Having a baby is not the worst thing. I think having multiple sex partners without any kind of restraint or responsibility is much more damning”. Of course Viagra being provided to men under Medicare is of no problem to her. Men are obviously much more in control of their sexual desires.
Similarly, Steve King (US rep. for Iowa’s 5th congressional district) argues that providing free birth control could end the human race. No, I’m not making this up: “Preventing babies from being born is not medicine. That’s not — that’s not constructive to our culture and our civilization. If we let our birth rate get down below replacement rate we’re a dying civilization”.
Sandy Rios is a FOX News Contributor, a conservative columnist, radio talk show host, and the Vice President of Family-Pac Federal (on the front lines of the “battles” for tradition values and limited government aka making sure the status quo in this country stays intact). She has (of course) been awarded the 2005 Henry Hyde Leadership Award, Pro-Life Action League’s “Protector Award”, Eagle Forum‘s Excellence Award, and Family PAC’s 1999 “Conservative of the Year”, for all her efforts to keep women down to ensure that the majority can never stand up to the tiny number of individuals that hold all the power and money.
Great take by Steven Colbert on this issue:
