Every so often, I share breakthrough stories about advances in “human rights” around the world.
Now, in honor of Sandra Fluke, the United Nations has decided that contraception is a human right. Not just a human right, a universal human right. The New York Times reports on this big news.
The United Nations says access to contraception is a universal human right that could dramatically improve the lives of women and children in poor countries.
So what’s the big deal? Surely people should have the right to buy a condom.
Yes, but we’re talking about the United Nations, so you won’t be surprised to learn that there shouldn’t be any “financial barriers” to birth control, which means people have the right to have other people pay for their fun and games.
