Huckabee Doubles Down on Sexist “Women Can’t Control Libidos” Comments

The government telling private, secular businesses they cannot force women to subsidize their owners’ personal religious beliefs (by having to pay extra out of pocket money to obtain contraceptives that are typically already covered in all major medical plans - just like Viagra) in no way means they’re actually paying for those contraceptives.
