Robin Marty with a deeply disturbing piece about the war on birth control. Human Life International (an organization that in fact does not seem to care about actual human life, just fetishized ideals of fetuses) is fighting back against the United Nations declaration of access to contraception as a human right. Because really all those sluts having sex outside of marriage are submitting themselves to voluntary rape and they deserve whatever results from their whorish actions, the little jezebels:
For those having sexual relations within natural marriage and want to regulate births, there is natural family planning. Those having sex outside of marriage, be prepared for an unfulfilled life where sexual intimacy is surrounded by unnatural, unreliable, and deadly methods of birth control and is typically an expression of consensual, mutual objectification- which, for all intents and purposes is a form of rape.
“Natural family planning.” My favorite thing in the world. I had to go through Catholic wedding training before my marriage. It was very exciting. I learned all about how natural family planning was God’s form of birth control. Taught by a woman with 11 children. Yes, that’s right. 11 children.
In this worldview, any woman having sex while unmarried, and presumably every woman using birth control while inside of marriage, is obviously a whore.
On one hand, I like the idea of Republicans embracing insane people who want to declare war on birth control. From a short-term political perspective, it’s a win. On the other hand, it’s incredibly depressing to have these debates. In other words, a lot of Americans need to grow the fuck up.
