‘Pro-Life’ Activist: Birth Control Is A ‘Pesticide’ That Will Make Women Just ‘Like Men’
On Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration “approved the first birth control pill that eliminates a woman’s monthly period.”

Yesterday on Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, Leslee Unruh, president of the National Abstinence Clearinghouse, argued that this pill a “pesticide” that will make women “like men.” She called it an “attack on children and families,” ending the segment with shouts of, “I want more babies. More babies. We love babies.” Watch it:

As Mary Alice Carr from NARAL pointed out, 98 percent of American women will use contraception at some point in their lives. No one is forcing women to use this form of birth control. This pill will not prevent women from ever having children, and will help women who find their periods too painful. Many medical professionals believe that “menstrual suppression could have some health benefits.”

Unruh led the fight for the “nation’s most sweeping abortion ban”in South Dakota in 2006, and her Abstinence Clearinghouse receives funding from the federal government. In 2001, Unruh said that she has received “nothing but support from the Bush administration.”

No one is stopping you from having babies until your uterus falls out, bitch. Thing is, you don't get to decide that for all women. Be glad I'm not emperor, Leslie - because when I am, Pro-Lifers will be sterilized and only allowed to adopt as a means of having children. It'll be the new eugenics.

And the overlooked bit, where Cavuto insinuates that this pill will give license for 12 & 13 year old girls to become sluts - that's just dandy, isn't it! What a fucking moron.
