Jennifer Roback Morse is the president of the Ruth Foundation, an anti-gay think tank attached to the National Organization for Marriage. And she’s offended — terribly offended — at the Obama administration’s healthcare mandate. Wait till you hear her reason why:
The Department of Health and Human Services’ recent birth control mandate, requiring employers to provide birth control in their health plans, for instance, referred to birth control as “preventative care.” The implication, Morse said, is that pregnancy is a disease or illness.
“I deeply resent the implication that the normal healthy functioning of my body is considered an illness,” Morse implored. “The mandate itself is offensive and is evidence of a war against women’s fertility.”
