Poll: Are Conservatives Trying to Limit Women’s Access to Birth Control?

Sandra Fluke’s testimony before House panel revived issue of taxpayer-backed contraception.

In an essay reprinted in the online site San Diego Free Press, Andrew Jenkins writes: “Make no mistake about it: Birth control is under attack because it empowers young people with the agency to make healthy choices about sex and sexuality.” Further, he argues that the “progressive community is deathly afraid of talking about sex and young people.” Is Jenkins right—and that conservatives are trying to roll back access to contraceptives?

kevin.. almost any of america's major newspapers are good.. some may have a liberal lean, some may have a conservative lean..but generally speaking they cover the NEWS straight down the middle..it's their EDITORIAL pages that lean..most major papers keep the two as far apart as possible.. read and study them, and you'll be a LOT better off information-wise.. that's pretty much how i do mine..and then i make up my OWN mind off the facts i'm getting from those sources.. doug

There's no question that various media outfits have their own biases; however, they at least make an effort toward balance. Like outlined by Curlee...they make a real effort to separate editorial position from the news, that is far more than I can say for right wing media. Mainstream journalist's first allegiance is to their profession...again more than I can say for right wing media.
