Obamateurism of the Day « Hot Air

Obamateurism of the Day « Hot Air: "“No brainer?”  Well … yeah.  That’s exactly what the Center for Disease Control found in its long-range study of sexually active women and unplanned pregnancy. The 2009 study showed that 99% of sexually active women who wanted to avoid pregnancy thought access to contraception a no-brainer, too.  In fact, the 20-year study never even suggests that access was a barrier to avoiding pregnancy; it doesn’t make the list of reasons for the unplanned pregnancies that occurred with respondents to their survey.

On the other hand, assuming that women can’t find birth control without their employer or school subsidizing and facilitating access, and forcing them to do so?  That’s treating women as “no brainers.”  It infantilizes women and puts employers, educators, and the government in the bedroom — where activists claim they don’t want those kind of intrusions."
