… it’s a tool to so­cial­ize us…

Modern Healthcare - - OPINIONS LETTERS -

This has noth­ing to do with want­ing to dis­credit any­one; this has ev­ery­thing to do with the Con­sti­tu­tion of the United States. It’s re­ally not about birth con­trol ei­ther. Whether you be­lieve in it or not, birth con­trol has been read­ily avail­able to women in this coun­try since the early ’60s. It’s al­ways been a choice un­less med­i­cally in­di­cated for other rea­sons.

The gov­ern­ment is not em­pow­ered by the Con­sti­tu­tion to force any en­tity, pri­vate or public, to en­gage in cer­tain be­hav­ior un­less the in­di­vid­ual state or Supreme Court has de­cided it should.

Birth con­trol is not a right ei­ther as some peo­ple have stated and should not be used as a tool to so­cial­ize us all into “be­ing equal.” Tina Wein­borg Bartlett, Tenn.
