195 GOP Reps Vote Against Right To Contraceptives

The Huffington Post reports:

The House passed the Right to Contraception Act on Thursday ― a bill that codifies the right to birth control and other contraceptives amid fears that the Supreme Court may come for that aspect of reproductive health care next after the high court repealed Roe v. Wade’s protection of abortion rights last month.

The bill passed despite 195 Republicans who voted against the bill in a final vote of 228 to 195. Republicans who voted against the legislation included Reps. Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Jack Bergman (Mich.) and Joe Wilson (S.C.). Just eight Republicans voted in favor of the bill.

Marriage equality got more Rethuglican votes than contraception??? Did not have that on my 2023 bingo card…..

On a related note, WTF is wrong with these people?

It is not just the RCC that is against contraceptives. Many Evangelical churches and mega churches want younger women to stop delaying families and preach against it.

I once heard a mega church sermon blaming women for delaying families, and The Pill made them infertile. Of course the women had delayed pregnancies because they were educated and with their husbands were saving for the down payment on a house in the $$$$ suburb.

Sure the RCC is against contraception, but the majority of American Catholics use it. Even among Evangelicals, this is an extreme position.

Some popular forms of birth control work by preventing a fertilized egg from implanting in the womb. If they support this bill, it can be used to say they are not truly pro-life and support killing babies.

That’s probably the most likely explaination. Doesn’t Plan B work that way, and also IUDs prevent a fertilized egg from implanting. So they are more afraid of the Pro-Life people than the anti-gay people.

Perhaps the Federal Goverment, as they have classified Tomatoes as vegetables, can classify abortion drugs as ‘contraception.’

I wonder if they want to outlaw vasectomies as well?

Seven Republicans not voting, the same number as not voting on marriage equality. Wondering now if it’s the same seven.

Laws for thee but not for me

That was my immediate thought as well. How the fuck is marriage equality more popular than contraception?

Because ME affects lots of conservative white men.

It’s like a group insanity that’s infected the party to the very top level. They don’t seem to understand how unpopular allowing states to ban contraception is because they’ve gone down this rabbit hole of “but the poor little (zygote) babies!”
