More on the contraception mandate

Not only is the Obama contraception mandate, with its requirements for people to buy a product they may consider abhorrent, clearly unconstitutional, it also appears to be exactly what the doctor didn't order for our long term prosperity, according to Mark Steyn.  How so?

Simple.  Plunging birthrates mean that the debt accumulated by 100 free-spending grandparents will need to be paid back by as few as 42 grandchildren.  According to Steyn, that's exactly the situation in Greece, and with a little more doing, we could be following the path of Russia, Japan, Germany, and a host of other nations facing the same demographic disaster.

Husbands, love your wives, and you just might want to leave the party balloons and pills at the store.  Your grandchildren's prosperity, and quite possibly your own security in retirement, may depend on it.
