Let Me Buy That for You

Barack Obama tests a modified t-shirt cannon designed to rapidly dispense
condoms at sporting events and other gatherings of "people in need."

I haven't commented much on the HHS mandate, and now semi-modified mandate, that we all buy condoms, morning after pills, and pay for the sterilization of all US citizens who request such things. There are moral arguments to be made regarding my religious freedom to not facilitate things I believe are morally wrong.

But morality aside, when did birth control become a basic human right? I can agree that we have an obligation to provide for those who are incapable feeding and sheltering themselves. There are people who need to be cared for. But who decided we need to help them have sex? Where does our responsibility stop?
