Obama backs federal regulation to pay for sexual promiscuity
In another bizarre deviation from the norm when it comes to an over-reaching federal government President Obama, and today the Democrat controlled Senate on a narrow 51-48 vote, have extended federal health care jurisdiction to guarantee protection for sexual promiscuity.
Under ObamaCare the federal government has now determined that sexual promiscuity must be covered by health insurance companies by ordering them to pay for multiple kinds of birth control in addition to abortions.
Where in the US Constitution does it guarantee the government will pay for freedom of sexual promiscuity?
Is this what a Harvard trained lawyer like Obama learns about our Constitution in law school? He is the one claiming to be a Constitutional lawyer.
In the first place birth control was available and paid for through private sources for anyone in
for the last few decades. Was it even necessary? Or was it another ruse to expand the social engineering to further undermine morality and religion in our country? America
Leading liberals, particularly feminist spokespeople, have made a passionate case that birth control is just another woman's health issue as if sexual promiscuity has no relationship to the matter and a woman is not normal unless they have a healthy sexual appetite.
They deny morality is involved and that religion has any role in working to stop the sexual epidemic currently facing our nation.
The Henry J. Kaiser family foundation says:
Every year there are more than 15 million new cases of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) in the
Americans are getting hit at three times the rate of other wealthy nations by bad health consequences of sexual activity, a report says.
Based on an analysis of national health data, researchers said 20 million adverse health events occur each year as a result of sexual behavior.
An additional 30,000 deaths each year are attributable to sexual behavior translating to 2 million years of lost life, according to the study.
You may think it can’t happen to you, but every year there are almost 3 million unintended pregnancies in this country. Among young people the problem is especially serious. Each year nearly 1 million young women aged 15 to 19 get pregnant; that’s a little more than one in every nine teenagers. Eighty percent of these pregnancies are unplanned.
These unplanned pregnancies result in about 1.2 million abortions every year in
The Centers for Disease Control says `these are numbers that have been reported; actual cases may be much higher. But it remains a hidden epidemic, not just because many STDs have no symptoms, but because of the stigma and politics that complicate efforts to fight them.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz told Megyn Kelly of Fox News that all women deserve free contraceptives. Here is what else Obama spokesperson and Democrat National Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz has said on this issue.
"Contraception in which 99 percent of women in
"There is a new poll that shows the American people trust the president to make the right decision about this."
"that's a huge extreme divide between President Obama and his excellent accomplishment in passing the affordable care act and then giving access to health care, free preventive wellness like contraception"
"Contraception is an important part of women's preventive health care. It not only prevents unwanted pregnancies, but also allows couples to limit family size, increase the interval between pregnancies, and reduces infant, child and maternal deaths in women whom, either because of age or health, should not become pregnant. Oral contraceptives can also be crucial for women who suffer from painful maladies like endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, or debilitating menstrual cramps or irregular periods."
Just a couple of notes about the facts and omissions from Chairwoman Wasserman. She has said repeatedly that 99% of all women in
Facts and Omissions
According to the US Census Bureau there were 127,026,000 women in
According to The Alan Guttmacher Institute:
• There are 62 million
• Seven in 10 women of reproductive age (43 million women) are sexually active and do not want to become pregnant, but could become pregnant if they and their partners fail to use a contraceptive method.
• The proportion of women aged 15–44 currently using a contraceptive method increased from 56% in 1982 to 64% in 1995, and then declined slightly to 62% in 2002 and 2006–2008.
In other words, 38 million women use contraception in
She also goes into great detail about how couples and families have a right to a government mandate to provide contraceptives for child planning purposes but fails to mention teens who are responsible for one third of all unwanted pregnancies, are far more sexually active than adults, and suffer far more from an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases.
What are STDs?
These are some of the diseases transmitted sexually.
- Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
- Hepatitis, Viral
- Herpes, Genital
- HIV/AIDS & STDs
- Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
- Lymphogranuloma Venereum (LGV)
- Pubic Lice Infestation
In 2010, a total of 1,307,893 cases of sexually transmitted Chlamydia trachomatis infection were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This is the largest number of cases ever reported to CDC for any condition. This case count corresponds to a rate of 426.0 cases per 100,000 population, an increase of 5.1% compared with the rate in 2009.
Rates of reported chlamydial infections among women have been increasing annually since the late 1980s, when public programs for screening and treatment of women were first established to avert pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and related complications.
Following a 74% decline in the rate of reported gonorrhea during 1975–1996, overall gonorrhea rates plateaued for 10 years; it decreased during 2006–2009 to the lowest rate since national reporting began and then increased 2.8% between 2009 and 2010. In 2010, a total of 309,341 cases of gonorrhea were reported in the

The rate of primary and secondary (P&S) syphilis reported in the
decreased during the 1990s, and in 2000, it was the lowest since reporting began in 1941. The low rate of syphilis and the concentration of most syphilis cases in a small number of geographic areas led to the development of the National Plan to Eliminate Syphilis from the United States, which was announced by the Surgeon General in 1999 and updated in 2006. United States
The overall rate of P&S syphilis in the
declined 89.7% during 1990–2000, then increased each year from 2001 through 2009. In 2010, the overall rate decreased for the first time in 10 years. The rate decreased 21% in women but increased slightly, 1.3%, in men. In 2010, a total of 13,774 cases of P&S syphilis were reported to CDC. After 14 years of decline, the number of reported cases of congenital syphilis reached an historic low of 339 cases in 2005. The number of cases increased from 2006–2008 but has since decreased with 377 cases reported in 2010, a 15% decrease since 2008. United States
Do we really believe this has nothing to do with sexual promiscuity or morality but is simply a matter of wellness for women according to Obama?
