I disagree wholeheartedly with this column. There is a grassroots conservative movement you may have heard of called the "Tea Party". These people are all about smaller government, lower taxes, and more freedom. It is impossible to square this platform with the socially conservative positions that would use the government to ban abortions and restrict gay marriage, two of the largest social issues in our society. Social conservatives don't want government dictating birth control coverage policy to the private sector, yet the same people are happy to have government dictate to a woman what she can and can't do with her body once she's pregnant?
