Over the last few months, pro-life candidates have been accused of many ridiculous things. But, hands down, the most outrageous accusation has been that they want to take away everyone’s birth control.
According to NARAL, pro-life Cory Gardner of Colorado wants to strip Coloradans of birth control– including condoms. As LifeNews previously reported, the pro-abortion group and its Colorado affiliate launched radio, television and digital ads telling viewers that, “if Cory Gardner gets his way, you better stock up on condoms.”
However, what’s even worse than their outrageous allegation is that people actually believed them. And pro-abortion proponents didn’t stop with slamming Gardner; they also said Joni Ernst of Iowa and countless other pro-life candidates would do the same thing.
Thankfully, Ernst wasn’t all that bothered by abortion extremists who said she was waging a war on women. In fact, at a polling place in Iowa she said, “I don’t want to hear about a phony ‘War on Women’ because I am a woman and I have been to war and this is not war.”
Some of the birth control hysterics surfaced after the Supreme Court ruled that Hobby Lobby didn’t have to obey the HHS mandate that is a part of Obamacare that requires businesses to pay for abortion causing drugs in their employee health care plans. And after the decision was announced, the pro-abortion lobby used it to paint all pro-lifers as anti-birth control, despite the fact the case had to do with abortifacients not all birth control.
Ultimately, abortion proponents thought spreading lies about pro-lifers banning birth control would help them win votes in the midterm elections. But it doesn’t look like that turned out so well since pro-life candidates stripped countless Senate seats held by pro-abortion candidates.
Nevertheless, for those who actually believed their wild allegation there’s this:
Ladies, stock up on birth control and abortions while you can!

Stock up on birth control, ladies. It will be illegal by the end of the week. #feminism

But the truth is, there’s no need to panic; birth control, including condoms, is still available to people everywhere.
