I know that health reform politics gets covered as a mainstream partisan thing and the fight over reproductive rights, abortion access, and contraception is treated as a ladies thing, sort of a side bar issue. This is where they come together. Republicans are against the government forcing you to buy health insurance. Republicans say they want the government out of the health care business. Republicans don’t want government telling people what to do when it comes to their health. That’s a very awkward message to be trying to peddle when they are trying to achieve complete regulation down to specific medical procedures of every pregnancy in their jurisdiction.
