The Supreme Court has issued a split decision and this time the ruling came down on the side of individual conscience and freedom. The Progressives are having a seizure because they cannot force private individuals to pay for their birth control.
The so-called Pro-Choice advocates are for Choice only if you agree with them. They need to remember the adage, “Be careful what you wish for, you may just get it!”
The Progressives are all about growing government and government power. There are individuals of a Progressive slant who really do care about the needs of others and so insist that the government do something to help. The problem is the government is not really good at solving individual problems. What the government is good at is coercion and the bigger the government the greater its ability to coerce.
If in the future the Progressives are able to overturn the recent Supreme Court ruling and force individuals to pay for other people’s birth control the obvious question becomes, what’s next? Would the government allow an individual (and individually held companies) to hold onto that money until it is needed or will the government force everyone to pay into a National Fund for Reproductive Health?
Will the government large enough to extort funds from individuals to pay for birth control stop at exacting the money? Governments do not save money they take in. They spend it to expand their power. If the government accumulated a huge reserve of funds for Birth Control the next step would be to force people to utilize the benefits of the system. A National Registry would need to be established and every woman of child bearing years would be recorded as well as her chosen birth control method. Failure to cooperate with this health protocol would bring punitive measures upon her and her family.
With these government agencies firmly in place the next step is to take Birth Control choices away from the individual and put them in the hands of experts. Education would be mandatory and occur in schools beginning at the earliest ages. Reproductive Health would include acceptable family size choices and would necessarily need to include data from other impacted sciences such Global Climate Change.
At this point failure to get on board the system would be tantamount to a crime against humanity of ecological proportions punishable by incarceration in re-education camps.
A government big enough to force others to provide your choices will eventually decide how you choose to do everything including what you are allowed to think. To anyone who values their individual freedom the time is now to work to shrink the power of the Federal government and return personal choices and responsibilities to each individual as much as possible.
