I’m not a big one for online petitions or email campaigns, but this is like, enough’s enough. I mean, I knew we had to keep a close eye on this bastard before he leaves office — you know how presidents like to slip in favors and last-minute loose-end-tying before they bail — but wow. The Bush administration is proposing and pushing regulations via the Department of Health and Human Services to define contraception (birth control) as abortion. A condom is not an abortion — but in schools, with abstinence education, this is most likely what they’ll learn. Just imagine the ramifications of that scenario — even as far as the global HIV/AIDS pandemic.
Read MoveOn.org Urges Opposition to HHS Regulations Redefining Contraception as Abortion, and they’ll tell us what we can do (like this email campaign and petition), even if it feels like we’re David and they’re… an outdated Biblical reference.
