Did you ever think that some of the causes that Howard really supports are really geared towards Beth. Think about it. 1.) Abortion: I don't know one guy that says the number one issue when he votes for the President is their stance on abortion. He has said many times that the President may have to elect a new Supreme Court Justice and abortion is the main issue when he votes. This is geared towards Beth because he is so fearful that if she ever got pregnant he wants her to know abortion is no big deal and he is 100% fine with it. 2.) Birth Control: Howard has said that he doesn't think women should take the birth control pill because it messes with their health. This is the same guy who just said the has no problem having a fetus killed but he is worried about a woman's hormones possibly changing. This is geared towards Beth because he would not want her to go on the pill because she has the control of it and he doesn't trust her to not take the pill and get pregnant. Hence the reason a married guy is still using condoms. 3.) Going down on women: Howard says it causes cancer. He took a phone call this week about it and Howard insists oral sex with a woman can cause cancer. This is an easy one. He just doesn't want to go down on Beth and uses this excuse. Howard is OCD with germs and knows Beth has been around the block and has been road more times than a rollercoaster. I am sure there are many more. Let me know which ones I am forgetting.
