Open Thread

by Mary

When the Republican candidates genuflect to the Religious Right, they promise to help bring about a culture that values life by disavowing contraceptives.

For now, the candidates vying for the Right to Life endorsement are doing their best to avoid directly answering mainstream voters' simple questions on the subject, such as, "Do you support couples having access to safe and effective birth control options, including emergency contraception?" Considering that even 80 percent of self-described "pro-life" voters and a majority of Republican voters strongly support contraception, it's no wonder why.

But they sure don't mind telling you what you can do in your bedroom because, after all, it is their business.

Your turn now.
