Bush: Contraception is Abortion

Seriously, wtf?? I cannot fathom what goes on in a conservatives mind. It blows me away. Their twisted logic knows no ends. I got this from a facebook friend today.

It seems unbelievable, but the Bush Administration is quietly trying to redefine "abortion" to include birth control. The Houston Chronicle says this could wipe out dozens of state laws that protect women's reproductive freedom and protect rape victims. This "rule change" doesn't need congressional approval.

Can you join over 250,000 others in signing this emergency message to Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt, whose department is considering this rule change right now?

Click here to sign:

MoveOn and Planned Parenthood will deliver the petition to Secretary Leavitt this coming week.

Petition Text:
"Contraception is NOT abortion. The Bush Administration's proposal to change the definition of abortion and reduce women's access to birth control must be stopped."
I don't know what good these petitions really do, but what do we have to lose, right? It only needs your name and email address. The text is simple and to the point. So there is no excuse. You can also join the facebook group if do such things, already at 43K+ strong.


  1. According to Feministing, the regulations don't define contraception as abortion. But they do allow health care providers to not only refuse to perform abortions, but to refuse to refer women to other providers who might. Tons more at Planned Parenthood.

  2. That's it! I'm not wearing rubber anymore!
