Steve King: Covering Birth Control Could Make Us A 'Dying Civilization'
"KING: We have people that are single, we have people that are past reproductive age, we have priests that are celibate. All of them, paying insurance premiums that cover contraceptives so that somebody else doesn't have to pay the full fare of that? And they've called it preventative medicine. Preventative medicine. Well if you applied that preventative medicine universally what you end up with is you've prevented a generation. Preventing babies from being born is not medicine. That's not that's not constructive to our culture and our civilization. If we let our birth rate get down below replacement rate we're a dying civilization."

I swear to goodness that if these morons had their way, every married woman (because unmarried women can't have sex) would be hauled before a board after each period to explain why they did not get pregnant last month.

Contribute what you can to Christie Vilsack to get this asshole out of our lives.

1. I got home last night just in time to see Colbert's riff on King and the "health Nazis".

"American's only have children by accident. It's clearly hard to imagine anyone having Steve King on purpose"
