Let's give free contraceptives to Irish women
I admire and respect Ireland's Minister for Health, Simon Harris TD, for leading the campaign to take Ireland from the dark age of religious misogyny and into the light of equality, where women have full control over their own bodies (why is the Catholic Church so obsessed with women's bodies?). I ask Minister Harris to go one step further and announce free contraception for all Irish women. This move would help to minimise unwanted pregnancies, as has been proven in the 46 countries worldwide that offer free contraception to women.
