Every time you think they can’t possibly get any stupider, they surprise you:
[quote]Republicans on a Colorado state Senate committee this week voted to end a contraception program that proponents said had helped to reduce the teen birthrate by 40 percent in recent years.
“Senate Republicans on the State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee defeated legislation to continue the Long Acting Reversible Contraception or ‘LARC’ program, a bipartisan bill to reduce unintended pregnancies and abortions,” a statement from Democratic state Sen. Mary Hodge noted on Wednesday.
Hodge explained that the teen birthrate had dropped dramatically during the five-year period that the program was privately funded, but the funding had run out.
“The program was effective, helping the teen birth rate in Colorado drop 40 percent from 2009 through 2013,” according to the statement. “The abortion rate also dropped 42 percent in the same time period." [/quote]
Because they actually don’t give a crap about abortion; what they want is to be able to punish ‘sluts’.
