Letter to the Editor

I sit here in amazement that the Catholic Church thinks it has the right to deny birth control to the rest of us. Who do these people think they are? Women have a fundamental intrinsic right to have access to birth control regardless of the religious bent of the provider who is publicly subsidized. Medical care is about the patient – not the health care provider. The very idea that Catholic views even matter for non-Catholic patients is something I consider religiously offensive.

I think Catholics should focus on stopping priests from raping children and quit trying to force women who have been raped to carry the baby of the rapist. Religious freedom is about the rights of the patient, not the rights of the doctor.
