Contraception, ultrasounds, and right-wing double standards

Catholic Church officials and other conservatives are up in arms over President Obama's decision to require all employee health care plans (with some religious exemptions) to cover contraception. As with Obamacare in general, they say that the government should not be in the health care business.

Ironically, however, it's many of these same conservatives who are behind the movements in some states to require ultrasounds for pregnant women who are considering abortion.

I guess it's OK for the government to be in the health care business only when it can disempower women.
