You can’t win, ladies

So there was all this brouhaha going on about birth control coverage last week, with conservatives pretending their opposition to it was based on “religious freedom” or some such hooha. And the problem, supposedly, was that religious institutions were going to have to pay for harlots getting their sex pills uh I mean medical services that contradict their deeply held moral principles. So then Pres. Obama accommodated religious institutions by allowing women employed by them to get their contraception directly from the insurer, still free of charge to the women but without their employers having to pay for the naughty girl pills. Problem solved, right?


Shockingly, this accommodation was not accepted by conservatives, who are now pushing for a bill in Congress to allow any employer to exclude any medical service from coverage if it is “contrary to the religious beliefs or moral convictions of the sponsor”. That’s a loophole big enough to drive the Popemobile through and it applies to anything, not just contraception. But we all know the whole thing is driven by conservatives not wanting ladies to get the naughty girl pills.

Oh, and remember this?


Jeez. Do they want women to get any health care at all?
