Birth Control, A Relevant Political Debate?

At a time when so many things are wrong with our country; our rising national debt, the housing collapse, high unemployment rates, high rates of homelessness, the decline of the middle class, the wars in the middle east, the divide between the Congress, Senate, President, and the American People, severe medicare and social security shortages, backlogged disability system for citizens and veterans; why choose to debate over birth control?  Shouldn't it be up to each individual woman to decide for herself if she wants to use birth control or not use birth control or have an abortion or not have an abortion?  Isn't this a matter of religious freedom?  Freedom of Religion is  for each one of us to able to choose which religion to follow or to follow no religion at all.

"True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made."
                                                                          -Franklin D. Roosevelt

"The unity of freedom has never relied on uniformity of opinion."
                                                                          -John F. Kennedy

"Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed."
                                                                          -Martin Luther King Jr.
