OK, so SCOTUS has made another assault on American values (yes, most Americans are in favor of birth control).

One more time--let's cover the basics (after the squiggly orange sphincter)...

I have a simple statement of the policy position of the Universal Inter-Galactic Federation of Homogenius(tm) (which exists entirely within the confines of my own corpus--hey, I'm a big guy).

Once more for the record:

I am a gay-identified man who will never need or cause the need for an abortion. But I am militantly pro-choice and pro-contraception (which is the ULTIMATE anti-abortion position).
If you are anti-contraception, THEN YOU ARE PRO-ABORTION!!!

Across all peer-reviewed medical and scientific studies, there is only one factor that reduces the need for abortion (which is the only factual way to reduce the abortion rate) ANYWHERE, IN EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE, and that's the widespread availability of, and instruction in the proper use of, contraception. Period. This is true across national boundaries, geography, religion, socio-economic status, and every other factor you can name.

Abstinence education doesn't reduce it. Statutory and constitutional bans don't. Promotion of adoption doesn't (although adoption is worth promoting in it's own right and I come from a very pro-adoption family).

Let's repeat this: Contraception is the ONLY way to reduce the need for abortion.

This is not difficult. (Except when you are dealing with the willfully ignorant).

I swear on a bad day I think it won't be a bad thing that the cockroaches will win in the end.

P.S. A special shout-out to the dickhead (Jesse Waters) on FAUX News today (surrounded by four compliant women) who said "single ladies" who voted for Obama "depend on government because they're not depending on their husbands".  You just can't make this shit up.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
