Response to cartoon on birth control accessibility

The political cartoon in the July 4 issue (free and available birth control) defies logic.

Birth control is already “available and free” to any. It’s hard to get pregnant if you don’t have sex. For those who find abstention unacceptable, birth control is available in the free market place. The legislated “right” to birth control does not include the responsibility for someone else to pay for it. By its very nature, a “right” must apply equally to all without negative impact on any.

Please exercise a bit more thought and reflection on fact before selecting and publishing your political dribble.
