    People who don't quite trust women to make their own decisions about abortion aren't ready to give up all forms of modern family planning.

    Huckabee's anti-contraception stance is the logical conclusion to the life-begins-at-conception train of thought.  He's wrong, and I don't think very many people would ultimately agree with him, but he is consistent.

    Those of us who've been ranting for years that the religious right would like to ban all contraceptives have felt like voices crying out in the wilderness.  Maybe now more people will realize how scary these theocrats are.
