I am sick to death of all the bickering over contraception. But I am more sick of Democrats' pathetic inability to come up with simple, concise words to counter any argument whatsoever. So, for progressive politicians and their strategists everywhere, allow me to help you out on this one. The next time some moron like Hannity or Limbaugh asks "why should [we] pay for someone else's contraception?" simply respond:
"Because fewer unintended pregnancies will result in the need for fewer abortions... isn't that a good thing?"
Or, how about:
"Because contraception is wildly less expensive than paying for medical care and/or other social services for a new mother living in poverty."
Right-wingers might not recognize a good policy decision if it hit them in the face, but even they can recognize simple concepts like "abortion bad" and "money good."
