This is how I understand it:
Some Republicans (mostly men) are against the use of contraception. If women don't want to get pregnant they should just stop being "sluts" (Rush's word, not mine), "keep their legs closed" and "just say no."
Many women who use birth control are married women. Are these Republican men suggesting that every woman who has sex without the intent of getting pregnant is a slut - including married women? Including post-menopausal women? Should their own wives "just say no" except for the 3-4 times in their marriage when they are trying to conceive?
Many women who use the contraceptive pills use them not for pregnancy prevention but for other health reasons, such as prevention of ovarian cysts and assistance with endometriosis. I wish these people would stop saying "Go buy a condom, that costs $1." There are much bigger issues here.
Men don't want to "pay" for the pill for women because that's basically like paying for them to have sex. Can't the same be said for all the plans that cover Viagra?
These men do not want to pay for contraception. Are they then willing to pay for the added prenatal care, maternity leave, birth costs and all pediatric costs that could result from this action?
If we want to open this door - of denying health services to individuals or groups because of personal beliefs - then we are coming upon a dark time. A time when a company can deny assistance for any number of issues. I don't like smokers, so I deny medical coverage to those that brought lung-related health issues upon themselves. I don't believe in ADHD so I won't cover the meds to help it. I am in support of 100% homeopathic and holistic approach to healing, so I will cover nothing for my employees.
These men don't support women preventing unwanted pregnancy and don't support a woman's right to end an unwanted pregnancy. But once she has been forced to have an unwanted child - even if she is too young or too poor or too immature to actually have a child, they also don't support assisting her through welfare or other government assistance.
When men think that the sex lives of women is their business, there is a power imbalance. When men use words like "slut" and "prostitute" to refer to women who have sex, that is not courage in the support of your religous beliefs - that is hatred toward women.
