I’m pro-choice, but not that kind of choice.

If you say no before or during sex and it does not stop; either through force, intimidation, threat, or power, that’s rape.  So, unless a person is raped, they’re choosing to engage in sex.  That’s a pretty novel choice to have. I dare say I like having that choice.

We all know one cannot travel back in time and undo a judgmental typo. But some like to pretend they can by aborting the consequence of those choices.  So, the people who are demanding abortion clinics in our cities, availability to teens, and subsidies from the government are admitting that they have poor judgement and decision making skills.  They admit that in the light of day, their judgement isn’t always sparkling.  And we’re supposed to support their judgement when they kill unborn babies to avoid the emotional or financial stigma of that bad decision?

Last I checked, there was not a single instance of government or law mandated sex in the United States in like a really long time.  I’m pretty sure that if you asked women if the think sex is optional, all the ones without daddy issues would say that it is.  So, why are so many ignoring the fact that there is not a religious institution, naysayer, or governing body that will ever try to impede their ability to choose whether or not to engage in sexual acts?  Yet, the tax payers are being asked to subsidize these completely optional activities.

Funny that today, I can get a year’s supply of birth control for free, but orthopedic insoles to relieve knee pain and reduce wear on my hips and spine and possibly buy an extra ten or fifteen years before I need corrective surgery are not covered by my insurance plan.  The subsequent surgery will be.

Funny that I have to pay $30-50 a month for toothpaste, brushes, mouth washes, etc, to buy time for myself in a losing battle with genetics and trauma, and will eventually pay thousands upon thousands to have my teeth and posts removed and replaced with prosthesis   Yet, birth control is cheaper than that,  and prevents something completely avoidable without it, and is being provided for free by tax payers.  Where’s my nationalized dental care, copay free cleansers/whiteners/tools, and low cost cosmetic dentistry?
