‘Of Course It’s a War on Birth Control’by
Wayne Christian lets the truth slip in an interview with the Texas Tribune:
Of course it’s a war on birth control, abortion, everything — that’s what family planning is supposed to be about.
This wasn’t a momentary slip of the tongue. Christian is just saying out loud what many Texas lawmakers believe — and many more supported with their votes this session. The ideology underlying all the attacks on abortion and Planned Parenthood is fundamentally anti-birth control and anti-family planning. And as so many others have pointed out, it is ultimately self-defeating, as depriving Texas women of birth control is one sure-fire way to increase the number of abortions in this state.
