Behold this latest Mitt Romney ad:
If you follow liberal thought, which is based upon the foundation of individual rights, it would seem to be a clear case, if you will have nationwide health insurance system, that things like contraception are covered. This issue isn't even one connected with abortion, and the arguing of the taking of human life, but contraception. Well, framed in this context, it seems to be obvious. But then, it isn't. You run into the case of religious faith and people's religious rights. In this the Catholic Church is opposed to contraception, and individuals of the faith, who choose to remain faithful to the teachings, end up arguing their religious beliefs are violated. In short, you have one set of rights pitted against another. And thus, you reach a flawed foundation of ethical systems based upon liberal thought, that being the case of rights being upheld and argued for.
I would be interested in seeing individuals who want to argue for rights-based ethical systems to be able to end up coming up with the best solution to this current issue regarding contraception and effectively argue that rights-based ethical systems can work.
