Would you vote for a candidate who supports outlawing hormonal birth control?

I'm not a single issue voter, and yes, this election will be mostly determined by economic policy issues. But could you vote for someone who supports (or claims to support) "personhood" laws that would make hormonal birth control illegal?

I think it's crazy to even think about making hormonal bc illegal. I think it's a poor decision on any candidate's part to claim support of it.

I'm not even 100% sure why it's an issue?

I would be bedridden 2-3 weeks each month if hormonal bc were outlawed... so I would not support anyone who thought it should be. I can't imagine why anyone would want to outlaw it anyway.

It's such an ignorant thing to stand for, I would never vote for that candidate.

Took the words right from me. I would be absolutely against it/them!

Has a candidate said this? That would be crazy!

I find it hard to believe that they could be so incredibly freaking stupid about that issue and magically smart and well-informed and reasonable about everything else, so no, I wouldn't. :B

My understanding is that people who are opposed to birth control are opposed to all forms of it - surgical, hormonal, and barrier methods. I've never heard anyone say they were opposed to pills but not condoms.

So this candidate wants to undo years of social evolution for women. I know for me my school work would suffer because one of the main reasons I'm on my BC is to help with the horrible back pain I get that used to make it so I wouldn't sleep for about 2 days.

Some people are against forms of birth control that only prevent implantation, rather than fertilization. In that case, they would be for condoms, sterilization, and forms of birth control that prevent the release of an egg, or prevent the fertilization of that egg.

I think hormonal birth control are just too commonly used that it would be a bad idea for them to be outlawed.

Not a fuckin chance.

The amount of stupidity and mind-fuckery that would have to be present for that to be legitimately suggested and considered is so obscene I would not care how spot on anything else they had to say was.

No.

Uh, no. After having my period for 5 months hormonal birth control was the only thing that stopped it so no I couldn't vote for someone who wanted to get rid of it. Hormonal birth control is used for so much more than birth control reasons.

Why vote for a stranger that wants to dictate what your body should and shouldn't be allowed to intake?

Absolutely not.

Many current Republican candidates for president have gone on record in support for "personhood" amendments, which would outlaw hormonal birth control, among other things. That group includes "Massachusetts moderate" Mitt Romney, even though you know he's just saying that to pander to conservatives. He'll take any position that suits him at the time. But somehow, that makes me even angrier.

The Republican part is too entrenched in theology for me to consider voting for any of them, anyway.

I have nothing against religion, but it doesn't belong as a lawmaker any more.

It's a shame, really, but I just can't overlook their horrific stances on quasi-religious matters to listen to anything else they're saying because until they cut that out, I couldn't bring myself to vote for them, anyway.

I wrote a small essay on abortion once, and it's a very tricky subject and I don't believe either stereotypical party is going about things exactly the right way.

Meh.

Politics. :/

Absolutely not, anyone that is either too dumb to be given the power of a public office or pandering to the equally dumb.

i am not even sure if something like that could happen. Birth control is not only used for unwanted pregnancies, but for regulating some women's menstrual times.

Nope. I'm not a single issue voter either, but there are a few non-negotiable things that just aren't okay for any candidate I vote for, and this is one issue!

Access to my oral contraceptives keeps me cyst and pms free. I couldn't vote for someone who wanted to take away my access to such things.
