Wow. Is Chuck Asay really trying to contrast free birth control with domestic violence? Because that’s what comes to mind when I look at the first panel. Women who have been beaten or threatened and they need somewhere private to hide.
Why is Asay bringing safe houses into this conversation? What the fuck is wrong with him? It’s been ridiculous enough to see conservatives get up in arms about Democrats et al wanting to provide free birth control, but at least there was something resembling logic as it’s usually been on the grounds that they think it somehow violates religious liberty or will encourage teenagers to go out and have sex (as if teens need encouragement to have sex).
But this? What the fuck is Asay thinking? Why… Where…. What is going through his mind that he sees the issue of birth control and his response is ‘Women who have been beaten by their spouses”?
Fuck you, Asay. Fuck you FOREVER. I’m sure you’ve successfully avoided knowing this, but that’s no excuse: Reproductive coercion is a thing in abuse. That care and safekeeping in the safe house? Is probably going to need to involve getting them access to birth control in at least some cases. Abusive partners (in relationships where it’s biologically possible for them to procreate with their victim) often sabotage birth control,because it’s that much more difficult to get away from someone you have a kid with.
This showed up on my dash not far from a story about a woman Planned Parenthood helped out with secret Depo shots after her abusive boyfriend confiscated her BC pills. Nothing like that to highlight this jackass’ utter disregard for reality.
