pro-life Dems remove a member from their advisory board for supporting contraception

From Vindy.com, with a tip of the hat to Feministe for directing me there:

Upset by what is sees as U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan abandoning his pro-life position, Democrats For Life of America removed the congressman from its national advisory board.

“DFLA gave Congressman Ryan ample opportunities to prove he’s committed to protecting life, but he has turned his back on the community at every turn,” said Kristen Day, the Washington, D.C.-based pro-life organization’s executive director.

Ryan of Niles, D-17th, insists he’s still a strong pro-life advocate, but grew frustrated with Democrats For Life of America and other pro-life groups that refuse to accept contraceptives as an option to avoid unwanted pregnancies.

“We’re working in Congress with groups that agree with preventative options while [the DFLA] is getting left behind,” Ryan said. “I can’t figure out for the life of me how to stop pregnancies without contraception. Don’t be mad at me for wanting to solve the problem.”

So, let’s see… even a man who adamantly opposes abortion will get dinged by anti-choice cohorts for supporting birth control methods that prevent pregnancies in the first place.  What doesn’t seem right about this?  Oh, maybe it’s the fact that even Democrat groups who are pro-life seem more interested in controlling sexuality, and not about preventing pregnancies that in fact lead to the very thing they claim to be against.  Hypocricy among sexists is as rampant as it is stupid.
