Contraception Controversy


With the White House now mandating Catholic businesses to provide an option for contraception in their health care plans, quite a number of people have become outraged. Men of the cloth and a few politicians have spoken out against the White Houses contraception plan, claiming it was a “war on religion”. Even with the White Houses accomadations there are a few people out there still claiming Obama and his administration over stepping their boundaries and want to make sure the catholic church is under attack.

In actuality this contraception plan was wildly popular with women and a large majority of all Americans, even some Catholic priests and nuns. It only seemed controversial to people like Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum and some other right wing leaders. Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich both claimed Obama was waging war on the Catholic church with his new law however, when Obama tweaked his contraception plan they started crying about other things. Rick Santorum switched to complaining about how an insurance company shouldn’t be forced to cover a product that isn’t insurable, such as contraception. Santorum claimed contraception costs are fairly low and affordable when really they’re not that affordable.

With republicans really being the only ones left in the public eye that are strongly against Obama’s contraception proposal one has to admit there’s an obvious disconnect between these representatives and the people they represent. When I say a large majority of Americans support this new law I mean a large majority. Sixty-one percent of the American people support this law and I believe it’s either sixty-three or fifty-eight percent of American Catholics support Obama’s contraception proposal. With the majority of American people in favor of Obama’s contraception proposal why do people like John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum continue to be so vehemently against the contraception law. And why do they continue to say it’s an infringement upon peoples privacy and religious liberty even though many Americans support this bill?

  1. Interesting, liberals like to use the argument of ”tyranny of the majority” when it comes to gay “marriage”. As for your stats, I’m sure if you phrase the question: “Should private companies and insurance be forced to cover contraception even if they are morally opposed to it?”, the outcome will show that Republicans are representing the view of the majority of Americans.

    • Really they are representing the majority of Americans when 99 % of American women use contraception and 98 % of Catholic Women use and condone the use of contraception. The presidents plan would have only made churches provide coverage of contraception the would not have made any one use it though. So how are republicans representing the majority of Americans or more importantly American Women.
