I wonder how NJ Rep Chris Smith would feel about contraception if HE suffered from his vaginal canal ripping during childbirth

And if he lived in a poverty stricken third world country, and had to suffer with the ripped flesh that does not repair itself?
How in the world does a man from the US get the idea that he should legislate contraceptive use for women? How bizarre it is to take contraceptives OUT of services given to poverty stricken women. It really makes you wonder about the motive behind the idea.
AND LOOK AT ALL OF THE NJ REPUG THUGS WHO VOTED FOR IT!!!
from NARAL---TELL YOUR REPS WHAT YOU THINK OF THEIR BIGOTED, SEXIST, VOTE OF PAIN

Recently, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to remove contraception from a list of services that clinics and hospitals offer overseas. Those who voted against contraception need to hear from you!
Take action today and express your outrage that your member of Congress voted against providing birth control for the world's most vulnerable women.
Send a letter to the following decision maker(s): Representative Chris Smith (if you live in NJ, and in district 4)Representative Frank LoBiondo (if you live in NJ, and in district 2)Representative Jim Saxton (if you live in NJ, and in district 3)Representative Mike Ferguson (if you live in NJ, and in district 7)Representative Scott Garrett (if you live in NJ, and in district 5)
Below is the sample letter:
Subject: Your Vote against Birth Control in HR 2601
Dear [decision maker name automatically inserted here],
As your constituent, I am writing to express my dismay at your recent vote against contraception for some of the world's poorest and most vulnerable women.
These women and girls are at risk of suffering from fistula, a terrible, tragic injury. These women and girls need access to birth control and I am dismayed that you voted against their access to contraception.
Sincerely,


What's At Stake:
As the House of Representatives was considering HR 2601, a bill to reauthorize foreign-aid programs, New Jersey’s very own Chris Smith offered an amendment to remove “contraception” from a list of services that clinics and hospitals overseas offer to women who are at risk of fistula. Fistula is a terrible, tragic injury that women and girls suffer when they endure days of obstructed labor. The result is an internaltear that never heals, and the women are often then abandoned by their husbandsand families, and shunned from their villages. These women desperately need to avoid pregnancy; they urgently need birth control.
