Last March I posted photos of a condom dispenser on the outside wall of a pharmacy in my town and commented that you would never see that in the US. Then I added that according to United Nations data, the 2006 teen birth rate in the US was 250% higher than that of Portugal.
Which is all the background you need for this statement, out of the mouth of a US Republican presidential candidate:
“We’ll repeal Obamacare and get rid any idea that you have to have abortion coverage or contraceptive coverage. One of the things that I will talk about that no president has talked about before is I think the dangers of contraception in this country, the sexual liberty idea and many in the Christian faith have said, you know contraception is OK. It’s not OK because it’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be,” – Rick Santorum, taking the Christianist war against individual freedom back to contraception.
I guess children having children is “how things are supposed to be.”
