The Affordable Health Care Act — Democrats' signature law — requires all employers to
provide birth control services to female employees — "free," mind you.
When the Catholic Church objected on religious grounds, President Obama grandly granted the church a presidential dispensation, saying the church did not have to provide free birth control, but its insurers did.
A whole lot of people, many of them not Catholics, found that a distinction without a difference.
When Republicans in the House of Representatives held a hearing on the matter, they didn't hear testi-mony from any women.
When Democrats, positioning themselves as champions of women, held their own hearing, a Georgetown University law student seemed to assert a right to have other people pay for her birth control.
How entitled can you get?
When conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh veered into wholly unwarranted personal abuse of the law student, disbelief rose to still higher levels.
