Hi IKY :)
First, not all BC is created equal. It is a hormone and has to be individualized. The pill Murr might use would not be the same one I would use. There lies the cost. The more complicated the perscription, the more it costs. What Target is saying is the cheapest, lowest dosage, costs $9. Remember, you get what you pay for.
Second, we have discussed gential mutilation and honor killings/maiming on this blog. Since they usually occur outside of the US, they are not considered an assualt by own government on 51% of its population. Don't worry IKY, we are VERY aware of the assault and legalized murder/brutality of women around the globe.
But I agree Iky, lets get out of the repoductive services. So that means not only BC for us but not viagra for you (men), no medicial services to those who got a social disease (any of them, not use AIDS/HIV) through consentual sex, penile implants, ect. Of course any children born out of wedlock would be an instant 50% child support to the noncustodial parent. I say thin the herd, of course that applies only to you (men) and never to me. <3
up2sumptin, I'm not very familiar with women's birth control so thank you for educating me on that.
I also agree the government should stay out of the reproductive services for men and women.
Please keep in mind I did not write this article, all I did was copy and paste from CNSNews.com like most people here do.
My main concern is for the Islamic Female Genital Mutilation going on around the world and here at home.
Why are we more worried about birth control as oppossed lets say anything else? BC is a personal responsibility period. Not to mention that people that cannot afford BC can get it FREE from public clinics. Until this country starts championing more revelent issues, all we do is tread water. We say say we dont want the government in our personal buisness, but want it to address personal responsibilites. Last time I checked, condoms work to and are FREE at public schools.
Because HMJC, BC is the begining. Without adequate BC, you are going to have more welfare mothers who are raising their child on the government teat. It is far cheaper to give the BC than to raise the children. Not to mention what happens to children who are not wanted by thier parents and what is the cost to the government for that?
BC is not hard to get period, most welfare mothers are mothers due to lack of personal responsibility, not availabilty.
