Ari Armstrong aptly summarizes the religious right’s advice to women:

So, in a nutshell, here’s the religious right’s advice for women. 1. Absolutely do not have sex unless you’re married. 2. At most, use only birth control that cannot possibly hinder the implantation of a fertilized egg. 3. If you get pregnant, regardless of the circumstances, you absolutely must have the baby, even if you were raped, and even if your health or the health of the embryo is at risk, except perhaps if you’re on the brink of death. 4. Once you bear a child, you should stay home to raise the child, rather than have a career, but perhaps you can have a career that advances the agenda of the religious right.

And some people wonder why I’m deeply concerned about the religious right’s growing power in American politics!
