So, here’s the deal.
If you think contraception is about health care, you are one screwed up person. Contraception is about tax breaks to corporations.
State Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R) introduced a bill in the Texas House of Representatives on Thursday that would give tax breaks to companies that don’t cover emergency contraception such as the morning-after pill.
Now, we cannot afford school teachers in Texas and we’re shutting down 7 state parks, which is a whole ‘nother horror story, but we can afford to give tax breaks to corporations who want to keep women barefoot and pregnant.
Welcome to Texas – where men are corporations and women are dog dump.
By the way, just in case you were wondering, State Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R) is 29 years old. He’s married but has no children. He lists his occupation as “Consultant,” which is a nice way of saying “unemployed.” He attended Tarrant County College and Parkland College, whose mottos are “Yeah, well, we never heard of you either.”
And, shocker!, he attends North Pointe Baptist Church.
Thanks to Moms Hugs and Aggieland Liz for the heads up.
