I am embarrassed and ashamed that the Harrison Press would print the line from Mr. Baird’s rant that states, “All I have to say to the liberal career student who thinks taxpayers should pay for her contraception, ‘If you are fortunate enough to get a john why don’t you have him pick up the tab?’”
At first I thought I read “job,” then I reflected on the word “john” and thought he meant “toilet.”
The real insult, to all women, is when I realized what he really meant. Is he saying those husbands or other males who support the use of contraception in family planning in a marriage or other relationships are “johns” and if you have a “john” then the women involved must be a (you fill in this word) or a woman who makes money by supplying sexual favors to men?
I support Baird’s right to express his views freely and his concerns about the future of our children and grandchildren. I had parents who survived the depression and I am so appreciative of a president who has been able to keep our country from the depths of such another great depression.
I suggest Baird pull out his “binders of women” guide book and look for another topic that would help and improve our lives. There is a possibility some of his descendants may be girls.
