Right Christians move on to their next battle - banning contraception

The American Taliban is really about banning sex and as the abortion battle is nearly won they move on to the next front - contraception. You might look at this poll.
Since 2004, pharmacist refusals have made headlines across the country—and have often spurred local governments into action. In Denton, Texas, three pharmacists were fired from Eckerd after refusing to fill an emergency contraception prescription for a rape victim. Gene Herr told the Associated Press that he "went in the back room and briefly prayed about it" and decided that he could not in good conscience provide the pills, which he believes can cause an abortion. Similar refusals have been reported in Georgia, Alabama, New Hampshire, Missouri, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

A few weeks ago, I was told by my OB/GYN doctor that she wouldn't give me an IUD because..are you ready? Because I'm not married.

Her reasoning was that a boyfriend, no matter how long term, will cheat on you and give you and STD, but a husband won't.

She then proceeded to tell me that she would give me a diaphragm, and that I only needed to use it one week a month, while I was fertile.

So I guess my cheating boyfriend won't give me an STD during the rest of the month....

Personally, I think she should be made to give me back my co-pay.

That is outrageous and illogical. And worse is that it is a doctor.
