Rachel Maddow schools Mitt Romney in her man cave on how babies are made and how birth control prevents that because clearly he missed health class thirty years ago, or he’s too busy with the pursuit of his ego to to think about something that affects 51% of the people he “wants” to represent
This is beautiful.
I just need to say that I love her.
I fucking love Rachel Maddow.
This video is GREAT. I HIGHLY recommend you all watch it. Not because Rachel Maddow schools Mitt Romney’s ass HARD but because it shows WHY comprehensive sex education is important.
It is important to understand what conception is and what a pregnancy is and how those are related. Apparently this is something that is being neglected if a presidential candidate doesn’t even understand it.
I also just want to point out that bills that attempt to give personhood to fertilized eggs are inherently sexist. There are no FDA approved hormonal birth control options for cis-men so the only people these bills hurt are people with vaginas. Not only that but these bills aren’t just outlawing hormonal birth control, they are forcing people with vaginas to use more unreliable methods of birth control like the pull-out method, natural family planning, or diaphragms and cervical caps if condoms aren’t or can’t be used.
AND, if a person becomes pregnant because they were forced to use a cervical cap that is 80% effective rather than the birth control they were taking that was 99.9% effective, they can be put in JAIL if the fertilized egg does not implant or if they have a miscarriage.
These are the consequences of bills like this. A person who suffers a miscarriage does not need to be carted off to jail; they need compassion and empathy and support.
