To all who are clamoring about not providing birth control because it’s against a particular religious belief, think about this: Let’s say a religion (i.e. Catholicism, Mormonism, etc..) believes that no one should be having sex out of wedlock. Let’s say that leaders of this religion decide that since any single people who contract a venereal disease obviously are having sex out of wedlock, they’re going to refuse to cover the treatment for VD contracted by single people. How many would be in favor of denying health care and/or antibiotics to people who might die without them? It’s the same argument that’s being made over birth control. Do we really want to decide who’s entitled to health care based on religion? It’s a slippery slope people.
