I think we have a different philosophy about the role of government, and it's probably pretty representative of one of the general differences between Democrats (or left leaning political parties) and Republicans (or right leaning parties), but I do think that rich and powerful governments have a responsibility to contribute positively to the betterment of the world. We sure are involved in a lot of wars and other extremely expensive propositions that I don't like supporting as an American taxpayer. Spending $600 million of US money to help support 27 million women and couples to be able to make a proactive choice about having a family seems like an excellent investment to me. I'm pro-child and also pro-choice. I want every child to be a wanted child. That starts with education and contraception, and hopefully only includes abortion as a last resort. I can only imagine what a difference it would make in this world if every woman and couple was empowered to decide how many children they choose to have and love.I think we both agree that access to family planning and contraception is a right. But I don't think it is the American's taxpayer responsibility to provide family planning and contraceptives to the rest of the world. As an American tax payer, it would be weird to me to witness American women in Argentina and Argentine women protesting because American tax payers are no longer paying for their family planning needs (which I don't think is the case in Argentina). But if it is, they should oo protest in front of the Casa Rosada for contraceptives instead, specially since Argentine taxes are no joke.
