Here is Prof. Christopher Tollefsen: “Contraception and Healthcare Rights.” I think it’s pretty carefully thought out and argued (one possible quibble based on a quick first reading would be with the “great gravity and urgency” criterion, though that probably has nothing to do with the point about contraception).
And I think Tollefsen implicitly points to another way (I mentioned a few in posts last week) in which there are connections between the contraception issue and the abortion issue. The more contraception is seen as part of normal “health care,” the more we are confusing desires with needs. The more we confuse desires with needs, the more we begin to think it might be intelligible to speak of a “right” to abortion.
For more on the problems with modern (mis)understandings of “rights,” see the section of John Paul II’s Evangelium Vitae entitled “‘Am I my brother’s keeper?’ (Gen 4:9): a perverse idea of freedom.”
And for more on the problems with today’s (mis)understandings of “medicine” or “health care,” see scientist, physician, and philosopher Dr. Leon Kass’s work. I’m thinking especially of part II of his his 1988 Toward a More Natural Science, though all of his work is worthwhile; see also his later Life, Liberty and the Defense of Dignity. (I used to use TMNS when teaching medical ethics; I switched to LLDD after it came out because it’s more up-to-date on some practical issues.)
