The group Pharmacists for Life International wants to control wombs. They stand against personal freedom in the name of utter nonsense. As always, the surprise comes when you consider that these folks are allowed to operate at all. Refusing to sell contraceptives to women is by any practical measure as prejudicial as refusing to serve women.
That said, I got a kick out of this little exchange with Feministing. So inspired, being a web developer professionally, I took a look at their website.
Now as a professional, I immediately dug the animated gifs and the simple yet adventurous with fonts design. But I thought, could the site possibly be using tables…. oh yes it is! You can’t make websites using technology at the same historical level as their view of women’s rights, but this is damn close.
A client scanning Dr. Kuhar’s website might question if “Traditional Catholic social princples” not only include rejecting all ideas of family planning and birth control but also spelling and grammar check. Some of the “quality products” American Pro-Life Enterprise sells include “non-sterile” latex gloves for situations requiring “santitary conditions.” APLE also sells thermometers for “arising temperatures” and supplies to make one’s own homemade “yogourt.” Someone seeing Dr. Kuhar’s website might question his intellectual abilities and, subsequently, his staunch defense of an organization life PFLI.
That was posted in 2004.
What’s surprising isn’t that people have ideas like this. Psychotic people are a fact of life. What’s insane is that here it is, 2008, and Dr. Kuhar and his bretherin have gone from homemade yogurt and pharmacists refusing to sell contraceptives to pharmacies spreading racism, lies, and more lies all while slamming the Bible in the face of any woman trying to obtain reproductive health products.
Who will be in control of your sex life in 2012?
