Republicans won back the House promising jobs. Since they were elected jobs have gone down and they've offered no jobs bills yet. They HAVE offered several bills on abortion. Now this--birth control for horses, not women. If they think killing a human fetus is murder, what is killing a horse fetus? Figure out which corp birth control for horses benefits and you'll know why the GOP is pushing this and not jobs.


Which of these two would get birth control if the anti-choice leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives gets its way?

Politico and RH Reality Check are reporting that anti-choice Rep. Dan Burton of Indiana has introduced an amendment to a spending bill that would promote contraception--for wild horses.

This comes at the same time as the anti-choice House leadership is pushing to eliminate all funding for Title X, the nation's only domestic family-planning program for humans.

Ted Miller, communications director for NARAL Pro-Choice America, said the move would be ridiculous if the stakes weren't so high:

House members fighting to preserve a horse's right to birth control would be laughable, if they weren't trying to block women from accessing contraception at the exact same time. What's next? An amendment that would allow veterinarians to refuse to provide birth control to a horse if the vet is personally opposed to contraception?
