Letter to the Editor
Last week Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee said, “Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without ‘Uncle Sugar’ coming in and for providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or reproductive system without the help of the government,” WOW!!
For those of us who learned about the “birds and the bees” it takes both a male and a female with a libido issue to cause pregnancy to occur. This means that both men and women, including married couples, have a stake getting birth control. Homosexuals however don’t have a birth control issue and since Republicans think being homosexual is a choice it makes me wonder how many people Republicans might be driving towards same sex relationships as a result of being against birth control? Maybe “Uncle Sugar’s” contraception funding isn’t such a bad idea after all?
