Republicans proudly proclaim their opposition to making contraception a federal right

Republicans get angry when people accuse them of hating women and wanting to control pregnant people’s bodies — yet instead of proving that neither of those things are true, they do things like:

Most recently not helping their cause? Refuse to make contraception a federal right, which they assert is completely unnecessary despite all of the above.
