Make contraceptives easily available to prevent abortions

I just read the article in which our religious leaders “blast” Obamacare’s mandate concerning some health care options for women.

I must confess how gratified I am that so many men are concerned with my virtue. Not!

Funny thing — RomneyCare in Massachusetts, upon which Obamacare is based, managed to reduce abortions dramatically among teens because they had access to medical care and various forms of contraception.

If all of these men want to monitor our sex life and reduce abortions, how about making contraceptives easily available and stop this campaign against women’s choices and against Planned Parenthood?
