Dear Mr. Boehner

Dear Mr. Boehner,

I’m writing to remind you that the United States of America is supposed to be a free country. Not a Christian country, nor a country where a homophobic man with power can decide that his values are the values of an entire nation.


To say that offering free birth control is an “unambiguous attack on religious freedom” is ridiculous. No one is forcing anyone to take birth control. It is simply being offered. Freedom is about choices and being able to make the ones that work for you.

Please step down from this position (the birth control fight or the entire job, I’m fine with either, really), and consider that you are supposed to be representing THE people… not just your people. Perhaps if you did actually represent the people of this country (which is your job), congress wouldn’t have a historically low approval rating.

Sincerely,

Rachel L. Arbeit
