Of course she's going to be fought tooth and nail and claw on this one. Because we're not allowed to accept that freedom for all means freedom for all.

And if I go any further, I'm going to degenerate into a ranter.

That usually means "freedom for all who can use it", which translates to "freedom for all who would choose what I choose".

Because choosing something else means you aren't ready for freedom yet…

Who's requiring people to make use of birth control, in this case?

The forced sterilization going on en masse in Uzbekistan comes to mind.
