McCain Fumbles on Women’s Rights

Let’s look at this objectively (or as objectively I am capable of when it comes to the stupidtity of others):

Birth control allows women to responsibly manage their own reproduction, and access to contraceptives such as the Pill have been shown to drastically decrease the number of unwanted pregnancies and the number of abortions. By contrast, Viagra gives men facing erectile dysfunction the ability to have sex. Mostly, these are men who are not looking to have children (as they tend to be older), but want to use the drug for recreational sex. Which is more important for insurance companies to cover? The answer ought to be pretty clear. But is it clear to presidential nominee John McCain?

In a recent interview in Portsmouth, Ohio, Senator McCain refused to answer whether he thought it was fair that many insurance plans would cover Viagra but wouldn’t cover birth control. Is this what we want in a President – someone who won’t place women’s health above men’s pleasure?

  1. That is why this country finally needed a female president and why Hillary should have gotten the nomination. We need to start setting priorities right here and with men always in charge I don’t know if that will ever happen.

  2. The things that are obvious to the general public and not so for politicians amaze me. They are sometimes so busy trying to please everyone they don’t even take the time to give a smart answer! Or he’s so old himself he doesn’t see what the big deal is about getting covered for his Viagara.
