While reading Ms. Chouinard’s view in last week’s issue of The Voyager on what Mr. Limbaugh said on his radio show, I thought the most glaring point is that not only did Ms. Chouinard apparently not listen to the radio program that day or any other day, but that she also missed the entire point.
Mr. Limbaugh’s point was not to argue against the use of contraception or against anyone using contraception, but rather how outrageous it was that someone, Ms. Fluke, was demanding that the Federal government provide free birth control.
The federal government does not create money, outside of printing it, but instead takes money from private citizens to fund operations.
I certainly do not want any of my tax dollars spent on funding birth control.
The federal government’s role is not to provide birth control to citizens.
Ms. Chouinard obviously does not understand that and feels that it is her “right” to have free birth control. I also find it ironic that Ms. Chouinard and other liberal women get upset at Mr. Limbaugh’s comments but don’t raise a second thought when liberal commentators such as Bill Maher refer to Sarah Palin as a c—.
Ms. Chouinard might, also, want to read into the difference between a right and a privilege.
Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness and other rights written in the Constitution are rights.
The access to birth control, driving, air condition, etc. are privileges Americans receive by living in America.
These are not rights, but privileges.
Every women has the privilege to take birth control because it is available, privately, in the United States, but do not confuse this privilege as a right.
As for her misunderstanding of the term “feminazi” the term comes from the ultra-feminists who hate on everything male. It has absolutely nothing to do with the use of contraceptions.
Mr. Limbaugh is not concerned nor is he telling any women what she should or should not do in terms of taking birth control.
Mr. Limbaugh is advocating that the federal government does not have a right to take money from others including citizens whose religion condones the use of contraception, such as Catholics, to pay for birth control regardless of the use.
