THE PUSH for free contraception is not simply about achieving women’s equality.
Liberals such as Obama genuinely believe that some of our worst social problems are caused by “unplanned pregnancies.” Think of Obama’s statements about the horror of a woman being saddled with an unplanned pregnancy. Like many liberals, he believes there are few things worse in life than having one’s career interrupted.
It’s not successful women such as Sandra Fluke whom they are really worried about. It’s the uneducated who continue to have children before getting college degrees and settling themselves in lifetime careers.
When liberals read about the rising rate of illegitimacy, they don’t think, “Gee, we need to return to traditional morals.” They think, “Why are these women giving up the opportunity to improve themselves? If only they had been smart enough to use contraception, their whole lives would be different.”
That’s why liberals are rabid when it comes to sex education in high school and to providing teenagers with condoms. They believe if contraception were cheap and widely available, everyone, including blacks who now live on welfare, would behave reasonably.
The liberal’s entire identity revolves around career and achievement. To him, those with unsatisfying or low-level careers suffer unimaginably. Children are great but only at the right time. Society could run at previously unknown levels of efficiency and prosperity if only people were given the adequate means to restrain their reproductive capacities. That’s why cheap contraception is important. Let synthetic hormones flow from the water fountains if need be. Save the common man from his own worst instincts.
