Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Who's Trying to Control Whom?

According to Andrew Sullivan:

NOW, THE PILL: The increasing popularity of laws that allow doctors and pharmacists to opt out of certain practices or even certain kinds of patient is a worrying trend. It was designed in part by the religious right to prevent gay people from having access to good medical care, and also to protect doctors from being forced to perform abortions. Now, its effects are being extended to the birth control pill, which some believe can be a form of abortion. The slow and fitful attempt of the far right to control others' sex lives continues. If you approve, vote Republican.
The slow and fitful attempt of the far left (or, in Andrew Sullivan's case, far center) to control others' professional lives continues. If you approve, vote Democrat.

By the way, whatever happened to the “between a woman and her doctor” slogan? Has it been replaced by “between a woman and a court order”?
