"If you hand out contraception to single women, we're saying promiscuity is OK as a state, and I am not in support of that," Phillips, R-Kansas City, said in an interview.That's right. She has decided that her opinion overrides the 98% of American women who have used birth control at some point in their life.
"State taxpayers should not be required to subsidize activities they believe are immoral or unethical, relating to contraceptives or abortions," said Larry Weber, executive director of the state Catholic Conference.Actually, state taxpayers should not be handing their government over to Christian extremists. Rather, they should base public health policy on acknowledged research and common sense.
