Nothing To See Here: Taking away contraception and turning back the clock

This invisible unmentionable comes from Timothy B. Carney of the Washington Examiner:
While PolitiFact and the Washington Post Factchecker blog basically ignored the string of “they’re trying to ban contraception !!!11!!!” lies from Democrats for weeks, last Friday, the Post noted Schumer’s boatload of deception. Here’s one of his gems:
This whole debate is an anachronism. Our country progressed beyond the issue of whether or not to allow birth control a long time ago. Yet here we are in 2012, and the Republican Party suddenly wants to turn back the clock and take away contraception from women. Make no mistake: that’s what this debate is about.

This one's pretty far back in the news cycle already, with no sign of interest from PolitiFact.
