 No way.  Beyond the fact that being able to choose the size of one's family is at the heart of freedom, it is in society's best interest that people be able to limit the size of their families.

I find it hillarious that the people that are for this say they are for small government.

Irrelevant question - no one is proposing LEGALLY REMOVING ACCESS to birth control..

They are protesting legally forcing employers to have to PAY for it. Women still have access.

Huge difference. But the left purposely distorts this issue ALL THE TIME, in order to deliberately inaccurately frame the actual issue.

No one is claiming that...This is not about paying for it yourself of any actual real government legislation. This is why I specifically stated that this was not a partisan question, but one of personal opinion.

A poster in another thread stated that they would like to see all forms of birth control removed from access for women. 

I simply want to know how many share that view.

It IS a partisan issue - because the question assumes something that is incorrect.

Therefore I can't vote.

It is similar (only in inaccurate theory) to ask the old query, "How long have you beatenyour wife, and when did you stop?"

Both questions assume something that is not true. Whether you believe it is not partisan - it is.

If you want a better question, it would be something like: "Do you think taxpayers should fund birth control or not?" That is the true question.

I find it more hilarious, that people are focused on such inane issues

No, it isn't partisan to ask your moral opinion.

Morality isn't partisan, regardless of what some think. Geeezz...

Do you/have you used birth control other than NFP? Do you think it is "wrong" for other women to be able to use other forms of birth control?

That is a very simple question. And granted, I probably should have worded it like that because then it makes more sense what I am asking.

No, and what an idiotic idea to remove all legal access to B/C. ( NWP not directed at you, just the idea)

Granted, the OP who inspired this post clarified after I posted it that she didn't say make it illegal, just that she would PREFER it be. For the better of our country. Because we need more people to take care of our aging population....

Couldn't we help this with immigration reform? There are plenty of people working right now in the US who would LOVE to be able to pay taxes and vote to help our aging population.
