Hello! What is this, 1962? It’s being debated – it has no traction in the world. None of us are out there saying, ‘Gee, should you be able to buy the Pill or should you not be able to buy the Pill?’ All of this is an attempt in a rapidly changing age to put the genie of freedom back in the bottle and guess what? It does not work. We are accustomed to living a certain way. Our daughters take certain things as bedrock. And a couple of guys in Washington arguing about this? Or Presidential debates? They’re not going to change that.
