  •  This is really important (4.00)
    It's so critical that the average person know that the zeal of the Dobson crowd, now controlling our government, extends to preventing simple birth control.

    I know for a fact that the right to life crowd thinks this is a winning issue for them if they push hard enough, because "people trust their pharmacists."

    We can't let them get ahead of us by framing it thusly.

    I got nuthin'. But check out unbossed.

    •  Yup (none)
      Thing is, most folks have the "can't happen to me" mentality about abortion and they use contraception to ensure that it doesn't.  But, start talking about taking away their means of abortion avoidance and you will start seeing a ton of angry people speaking and acting out.

        I should take this course, paging Jeffrey Feldman.  Feldman to the courtesy phone please.  "Abortion avoidance" is probably not the best way to talk about contraception, but I was in a hurry when I wrote that.  ;(
