LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Birth control issue is Republican politics

Do you know what the contraception brouhaha is about? Republicans are gaming the long-settled birth control issue in hopes of gaining some political advantage in this election year. Don’t be distracted by the Rush Limbaugh scandal, the Catholic church or other conversations swirling around.

Simply put, Republicans are attacking President Barack Obama’s birth control policy by backing employers and health insurance companies in denying coverage for contraception, that these organizations object to on religious and moral grounds. It’s a political thing! It’s Republican religious politics rearing its ugly head again.
