It is discouraging to a baby boomer woman like me to hear Republican nominees to call the matter of contraception a religious freedom concern. Rush Limbaugh has brought a new low vulgarity to the debate by calling a woman a slut who wanted to comment on the right of women to have access to contraception an individual right.
The matter of men having drugs to combat erectile dysfunction routinely covered by all medical insurance is not brought up. Republican conservatives and the Catholic church should continue their own reasoning and pronounce the erectile dysfunction drugs can only be covered to produce children. The only way to insure this is to monitor all sexual intercourse events and make sure the end result is a child. Otherwise these drugs should be paid out of pocket by the user, just like contraception.
Of course these "wonder" drugs for men are a top money maker for drug companies.
The ugly head of sexism rises again.
