I see the word “access” written freely by progressives and usually mentioned in conjunction with needs like birth control or abortions. Their argument is always framed as seeking more “access” to these services and products.
… Is birth control not available to everyone of age today? Isn’t abortion considered the law of the land today and, therefore, legal and available? Who isn’t getting “access” to either birth control or abortions…?
… Let’s be honest, it’s not more “access” that Planned Parenthood desires, but more “paid for by the taxpayer access.”
