At least that's what governor Nikki Haley says~

To me, it seems like one of the more important things that is being threatened right now, and one of the more important issues of this election, but everyone is different. What do you think? Do you care?

It is an important issue in this election, as evidenced by the amount of time and effort being spent in various states to limit women's reproductive rights and options. Oh, yeah, women definitely care about this.

I don't know many women in real life that have this on their radar for the election. There are too many things I see we need to worry about, birth control is not an issue at all in deciding my vote.

Of course women care about contraception. What most women, not swayed by political fear mongering, wonder is, how is contraceptive care being threatened?
Another silly made up problem, for which the left is famous.
Paul Ryan is right, this is demagoguery at it's finest.

I don't think it should be the make or break of this election but I have a little feeling it will..

Reproductive rights are being threatened every day in numerous states. That's a fact, not fear mongering. It's going to bite the GOP in the butt. I guarantee it.

Contraceptive rights are being threatened every day in which states? I honestly have not seen the bills, legislation etc that you are talking about.
Certainly you don't consider abortion to be a contraceptive, do you?

Anything that chips away at reproductive rights is cause for worry. A lot of the whackos who are behind all these bills trying to reduce women's reproductive rights also think that birth control should be included based on their religious beliefs.

So we are talking contaception, not abortion, right, because most people I know don't consider them one and the same.
Which bills have the" whackos" introduced that chip away at contraceptive rights? I understand that some religions forbid contraceptives, but I don't know of the valid bills which have been introduced, much less passed that would worry any woman about their contraceptive rights.

The proposed Personhood amendments in OK, NV and CO that may be on the ballot in Nov, if passed, could chip away at contraceptive rights.
