Poor Bill O'Reilly just doesn't understand why "militant women" say there's a "war on women" because he just doesn't see any war happening. But the war on reproductive choice, which includes limiting access to birth control via making it costly, is happening as we speak. So given that Bill needs to be educated about this supposedly non-existant war, I submit the new Missouri Law which allows employers to deny coverage for birth control if it violates their religious beliefs. (Viagra not a religious problem but then that's about man needs) In other words, if you're a non-Catholic woman, working for a Catholic or other Christian employer who objects to contraception, you're shit out of luck and depending on your prescription, you could end up paying up to $50 a month. As this law is an attempt to trump federal law, a suit has been filed. And O'Reilly doesn't think there's a war on women. Really?
If you want to tell O'Reilly that there is a "war of women" here's information from his website:
Funny, if Bill's estranged wife is still on his Fox health care policy, she could not be availing herself of birth control with no copayment. But if she is, like Bill, a devout Catholic, she wouldn't be needing it. Then again...
Talk about the freedom to live your faith! ;-)
I’m sure Evangelical and Catholic men and women around the country would jump at the chance to stand up and buy health insurance that doesn’t cover their birth control! And the rest of us can get the kind of coverage we believe in. (We’re gonna need some alternative churches though.)
Kidding aside, we may, indeed, have to take to the streets to defend our rights as equal citizens to men.
Nobody says anything to men who decide to undergo a vasectomy, use a condom or take viagra. Why should the same acceptance not be accorded to women?
Missouri = land of the troglodytes (with apologies to the latter).
Bill O’Reilly is so conceited as to assume that he has the right to decide what others are supposed to do, especially women. He hasn’t a clue – and doesn’t want to have any – that women should have the right to control their own bodies. It drives him berserk; how dare they! He’s both a troglodyte and a bully, probably also a hypocrite.
As he does not appear to have >12 children by his wife (or wives), I cannot but assume that they used some form of birth control. Alternatively, the frustration of abstinence may explain his (proven) reputation for harrassing other women.
