Let's not pay for others' birth control

In response to Berns K. Gingras' June 30 letter about Catholic bishops and women: You argue against the U.S. bishops about the Health and Human Services mandate of President Obama's health care plan. Certainly you can voice your opinion, but I do find your comment that the bishops are waging a war on women to be unfounded.

But you can add me to your unfounded war list as I don't want my tax money spent on providing elective non-medical items. Not for contraception, not for abortions, not for the morning-after pill nor any other procedure/prescription that manipulates the order of life.

From my point of view, what you state as your legal/moral right is more an issue of I want, what I want, when I want it. And, again, I don't want to pay for that.
