A few weeks ago, Ravalli County commissioners voted to reject federal Title X funding for reproductive health services, closing their health department’s family planning clinic for the first time in 40 years. That money comes from Obama, and God doesn’t want you to have sex anyway. That’s why he punishes you with children. Anywhom, after various Ravalli residents complained that they couldn’t get screened for ovarian cancer and whatnot, Foss wrote this editorial in the Ravalli Republic explaining her decision. “Water runs downhill, the path of least resistance,” she said. “So too does humankind when enabled.” Not enabling her constituents to access reproductive health services was a religious freedom issue, she argued, and birth control pills give you cancer anyway. It was a less than convincing work of scholarship, and it’s the subject of my latest column in the Missoula Independent. I got kind of angry, but not as angry as the guy who printed up a bunch of “Bitterroot Taliban” flyers with Foss’s picture on them. Now that’s some citizen journalism, right there. We’ll be back tomorrow with Friday links.
