Can I just say this?
It's fine if someone feels birth control pills and in vitro fertilization (IVF) goes against their personal religious beliefs, but it's not acceptable to try to legislate those beliefs. I am not Mormon. I am not Catholic. While it's fine and dandy for politicians to have their own religious views and belief systems, it should not interfere with their ability to do their job! It's time to stop trying to pass laws that force others to practice their religion.
If birth control pills are against your religious beliefs, then don't use them. They are not against my religion, so stop trying to pass laws to tell me what to do! Freedom of religion doesn't mean you get to try to make everyone follow your religion through laws and legislation. It means you get to follow your beliefs without persecution, and I get to follow mine.
Thank you for letting me vent. And now, back to my blog about being a mommy...
