Quote of the Day: Religious Freedom

"You can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your 'religious freedom.'  If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it.  Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs."  - Unknown

I first saw this quote on Facebook, with tons of "likes" and "shares" around it, but it was attributed to Barack Obama.  While I would have loved that, it seemed strange to me that it was such a direct (and kind of inflamatory) quote and I hadn't heard it anytime recently or at all during the campaign.  A quick google search showed that it's often mis-attributed to the Prez, but that he didn't say it.  Still a solid quotation and concise rationale, though, so I decided to share.
