Re: “Jason Rapert isn't finished with his war on women

I agree that men and women have completely equal responsibilities to prevent pregnancy, but I have a huge issue with restricting womens access to contraception. True, men can just throw on a condom, but what about those men who refuse? Heck, what about women who want to be more proactive about things and make sure they use a method of their own to prevent pregnancy? Condoms and other forms of contraception are NOT equally priced. Many women, myself included, would not be able to afford forms of birth control suck as the pill, without assistance from programs like planned parenthood. Not to mention there is a complete lack of education about reproductive health in this country (due in part to abstinence-only sex "education" in schools) that planned parenthood provides, free of charge, for anyone who wants it. Even though this may not be the intention, there is definitely a war on women being waged, restricting our access to equal medical treatment in an effort to keep us ignorant and distracted. Dispicable.
