The Pill, the price, the protest

And now for an incredible bit of irony. Students at the University of New Mexico are protesting the rising cost of birth control. The take away comment:

Restoring the funds will reduce the squeeze on cash-strapped students, added Ambrosia Ortiz.

"So they don't have to make a choice between their birth control and their cell phone bill or their birth control and their gym membership and their birth control," Ortiz said. "These are choices women that women shouldn't have to make.

"Birth control should be very affordable." Link.

Sometimes you just can't make this stuff up.

Yeah....it's right there in the Constitution under unalienable rights. Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, driver's licenses, and birth control pills.
