Dear President Obama,

I'm a mother of two young daughters: Daisy is six and Caroline is almost ten. My six-year-old would like to be a doctor for dolphins and my ten-year-old dreams of becoming a jet fighter pilot.

Caroline is so committed to her dream that she sets her alarm at 5:00 every morning so she'll be prepared for her military service.

I love that my daughters dream so big and see no limits to their future. Watching their dreams unfold everyday is one of the unique pleasures of being a mom.

It is upsetting to me that in 2012 the use of birth control has become controversial. Birth control isn't just for family planning, it's preventative care and treatment, it's medication that most women need and use at some point in their lives. And it is as common in a woman's medicine cabinet as cough medicine.

Beyond that it's a woman's right to make decisions about her own body and her own life. This is just one reason I'm so passionate about getting you re-elected this year. We need a President who will stand up for women's health and stay focused on jobs and economic recovery. The dreams of all our daughters are at stake. And they're counting on us to fight for them.

We don't need Obama or Romney, are country needs a good president. At the moment Romney is the better choice. Why am I even commenting on this video of a stupid man trying to be more popular to the people's choice against another stupid man? tell me when we get a good president.

It's definitely a women's choice whether to have a child or not. If you're against birth control, then don't take it. Easy as that. I don't understand why it has to be so controversial.

I love this woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
I understand that it is a women's right to determine whether or not she takes the pill. But she can pay for it. I have to pay for my medications. Nobody pays my bills. My taxes seem to have to pay for everyone else's though. And BC pills cause blood clots, which people seem to ignore until its too late.
Write to the republicans blocking your rights to birth control
