Jon Stewart - Birth Control Mandate


Jon Stewart, with The Daily Show, returned to weigh in over the White House birth control mandate controversy last night. Always the victims, the religious right is not satisfied with the compromise reached between Obama and healthcare providers. The administration seemed to disturb a dormant beehive of anti-contraceptive activists. Sean Hannity claims that Obama is waging a war on religion and Newt Gingrich goes as far to say that, if re-elected, he will escalate this war. This issue will likely continue to intensify until the election in the fall. Several Fox News pundits compared the issue to Nazi Germany.

“Hitler didn’t start small. His deliberate annihilation of a religion didn’t start with insurance reform.” – Jon Stewart
