Paul Ryan and his stance on Birth Control

Paul Ryan, age 42, is the Republican candidate for Vice President of the U.S.A. in the November, 2012 Federal Elections. 

Paul Ryan
He is the U.S. Representative for Wisconsin's 1st congressional district, serving since 1999. 

Mitt Romney, a Mormon, and Paul Ryan, a Catholic, do not support contraception.

This is too idiotic for words and it pains me that I would even have to write a blog about this nonsense in this day and age. It is hard to believe that educated men would come up with crap like this in the 21st century. 

Mitt Romney has said he would support a bill that would allow employers and insurers to deny their female employees insurance coverage for birth control and other health services, based on the religious beliefs of the employers and insurers. He has also said that he would get rid of Planned Parenthood, an organization that promotes contraception.

Paul Ryan is a Catholic. He's against any laws that mandate religious employers to provide insurance coverage for birth control. He’s also opposed to federally funded family planning services. He voted to deny birth control coverage to federal employees in 1999 and has voted at least four times to stop funding Planned Parenthood, a key provider of contraceptives, particularly for low-income women. He also supports the “personhood” movement, which writes bills defining conception as the beginning of life that would likely outlaw some forms of birth control.

Guess who's coming to dinner?  But there will be
no dinner.
The world can naturally support 2 billion people. We have 7 billion people on this planet. We are running out of resources such as oil and gas, and water and food.

Every day, approximately 35,000 people die from causes related to starvation. They are hungry. Their bodies can't take any more abuse. They are sick and tired and weak. Seemingly, many of them would kill for a loaf of bread. 

In 100 years, our great grandchildren may all be dead of starvation. We can't keep reproducing at this rate. This is not an American issue.  It is a global issue. 

And then we have these men, who are opposed to contraception. They want every random sex act to have the potential to result in a birth to further push the destruction scenario?

God help us. Jesus, Mary and all saints and all angels pray for us. Amen.
