I really doubt the cost of contraception can hold a candle to the cost of unwanted pregnancy. Wanna do something about single parents on welfare, abortion, and the maternity care you're paying for offered to these women who are getting pregnant when they really can't afford to be? This is your answer.
This is awesome. Complaining that it's not free and therefore we shouldn't do it while simultaneously complaining about abortion and welfare mothers, is a bit like complaining about the cost of a police force in your city and therefore we should abolish them while simultaneously complaining that businesses don't want to be in your town and the economy sucks. Well, duh.
I'm lucky enough to live in a state where we have the money to run programs like this that are very available to women, but I have lived in states where that is not the case. Guess what? Their unintended pregnancy rate is much higher.
I don't claim to speak for all Minnesotans, but if it makes you feel better, I'd be happy to opt out and save us some money. We're already running a pretty good program here. Send my money to San Antonio, Texas, my best wishes to the women in your town, and my thanks Miss Selebius.
