Aol News and U.S.News and World Report both have polls up regarding the proposed HHS rule that defines a fertilized egg as a human being, mistakenly equates some forms of birth control as abortion, and supports health care practitioners who want to work in a field in which they can refuse birth control to people.
(What’s wrong with radiology, right wing docs and nurses? Oncology? WWJD? Wouldn’t He choose infectious disease? What about the lepers? Get out of family practice and ob/gyn if you don’t support birth control, a health care decision that 98% of women will choose at least once in their reproductive years.)
Anyway, I know they are just unscientific polls, but those are both large media conglomerates. The numbers are overwhelmingly supportive of a women’s right to choose birth control and discouraging this ridiculous definition. I hope the results are used throughout the AOL and USN&WR universe.
