The Pill

The federal government’s mandate that insurance available through even religious institutions cover birth control resulted in controversy — controversy that was inevitable due to the current polarization of American politics.

Whatever side of the argument a modern gentleman is on, he can find common ground with those whom he disagrees. In this instance, the frame employed by media covering the mandate derives from the faulty assumption that it is a “women’s issue.”

Men are significant stakeholders in issues of reproductive health. To think otherwise is sexist, backward and ungentlemanly.
