Contraceptive debate isn't about birth control, it's about religious freedom

Susan Reimer's moral indignation regarding the dearth of women's responses to the political furor over birth control is misplaced ("In birth control debate, where are the women's voices?" Feb. 16). Women are not speaking out because birth control availability is not the issue, religious freedom is.

President Barack Obama reneged on a promise to faith-based organizations that they would not have to violate their religious beliefs when providing health care coverage for their employees.

I suggest Ms. Reimer check her facts before attempting to stir the pot on what is always a hot button issue. Women in this country know that their access to birth control will never be denied.
