Planned Parenthood: Birth control = "items critical to [flood victim's] well-being"

Dawn again points out the absurdity of Planned Parenthood's agenda, this time in regards to their idea of disaster relief for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Is Planned Parenthood offering evacuees food? No! Water? No! Shelter? No! First aid? No!


Clicking the "more" link leads to an page that reads:

Help Those Affected by Hurricane

Planned Parenthood clinics in the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas are doing everything possible to attend to the needs of patients in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Women and families escaped the storm with their lives,

Note it says "women and families." Not just "victims," or "women, men and children." Women first, then families—men and children nowhere in sight. It's like that famous New York Times headline parody: "World Ends; Women, Minorities Hit Hardest."

The pitch continues:

leaving behind birth control and other items critical to their well-being.

So, could someone please explain to me how exactly birth control is something that is critical to people's well-being like food and water are? Is there something about birth control that prevents people from dying from dehydration, starvation or drowning? Are people trapped in or on flooded buildings and other structures in desperate need of birth control? Can birth control be used to rescue people?

"Critical to their well-being." Ridiculous!
