Contraception more women's issue than religious issue
Yes. And in general, the views of women tend to go ignored. I suspect this begins to change soon. At the time of passage of the 20th Amendment, it was a huge worry, women voting as a bloc. Well, we aren't all quite in such lockstep, but polls show gender differences on many issues, and think candidates had best start paying attention.
And on this issue more than any other, piss us off enough, good luck.
We...are the 53%.
Agreed. At last, the stand of believing they somehow hold the morality of the country while we lefties are uncaring heathens is coming to a screeching halt.
FYI, contraception is very much a religious issue.. http://www.catholic.com/tracts/birth-control....Rachel Maddow is as liberal as they come! She and right wing extremist Sean Hannity should get a room, doors locked to go at it, Lol!
Since I'm right there with her... Maddow in any debate with Coulter, Limbaugh, Beck, et al... none of the latter would stand a chance against her. No chance, el zippo.
While bc may be a religious issue, religious issues are not government issues. This... is a secular country, with secular law. Religion is for those of like mind who meet in some way and celebrate and honour their belief, each within it choosing to follow or not its tenets. It had precisely nothing to do with governance.
Innocent ol' me took the comment to mean they should debate.
Jamblessedthree, please tell me you meant the comment about Maddow in terms of debate and not intimacy, because as a dyke, I would not find such a comment amusing.

Every single one of the Republican candidates have placed themselves to the right of even the voters of Mississippi with regard to personhood and birth control. They are completely ignoring the fact that women vote and most women have used birth control at one time or another. They are completely ignoring the fact that women are not willing to give up their birth control.
