File this under “Too Screwed Up to Make Up.” Rep. Dan Burton of Indiana has apparently introduced a bill that would promote contraception… for horses.
I suppose that would be fine. I’m all for contraception whenever it’s needed. But Dan Burton is also squarely on the Republican side of the fence when it comes to women. Anti-choice House leadership is pushing to eliminate all funding for Title X, which provides contraception for humans.
It’s hard for me to imagine a reality in which any woman could tolerate this kind of degradation. Hello? Anyone? The Republicans are telling you that you’re less important than a horse! Your bodies… your rights… NOT IMPORTANT. But we don’t want horses to go about having too many babies. That would be unthinkable.
