Remember the Great Birth Control Lie from the 2012 campaign between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney? Romney had taken the position that employers should not be required to pay for birth control as part of healthcare insurance, and that healthcare providers with religious affiliation should not be required, against their conscience, to provide birth control and abortion pills. The Obama campaign told one of many big lies on this issue, deliberately distorting Romney's position to suggest he would ban or outlaw birth control. Mitt Romney made it clear he wouldn't in any way interfere with the right to use birth control. Now remember, having a right to posses or use something never implies that the state or anyone else has to purchase it for you. The right to keep and bear arms, for example that is recognized by the Second Amendment, has never been construed to mean the federal government, or your employer, has to buy you an AR-15 rifle.
As you can see from the above picture, taken from a McAuliffe campaign spot shown on television this year, the Terry McAuliffe for governor campaign is using the birth control life against Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli. Note that they can't outright claim the legislation they say Cuccinelli supported would outlaw birth control, so they make it sound that way with language that is barely not libelous, by claiming the legislation “could” make birth control illegal. Such a claim is factually meaningless, since any legislation, being interpreted in just such a way by an extremely activist judge, “could” do any number of things, but that doesn't mean that is what the legislation intended to do, or that the authors of the bill wanted it to do that.
In this instance, this has been entirely debunked, as Ken Cuccinelli has made it clear he is not in favor of making birth control illegal. In fact, this article in The Washington Post, no friend of conservative candidate, has documented the debunking of this claim that Cuccinelli wants to ban birth control. Those are the fact, let it be known and clear to all that, the birth control claim by the McAuliffe campaign, against Cuccinelli, is a blatant lie. Shame on you Terry McAuliffe, you should know better. You just can't trust someone who lies that blatantly and refuses to rescind the lie.
