    Re: Contraceptive Recommendation Creates New Controversy for Health Care Law

    "OBJECTIVE:

    To estimate cost savings from emergency contraceptive pills in Canada.

    METHODS:

    We modeled cost savings when a single emergency contraceptive treatment was provided after unprotected intercourse and when women were provided emergency contraceptive pills in advance.

    RESULTS:

    Each dollar spent on a single treatment saved $1.19--$2.35 (in Canadian currency), depending on the regimen and on assumptions about savings from costs avoided by preventing mistimed births. The dedicated products Preven (Shire Canada, Inc., Oakville, Ontario) and Plan B (Paladin Labs, Inc., Montreal) were cost-saving even under the least favorable assumption that mistimed births prevented today occur 2 years later. Each dollar spent on advance provision of Preven saved $1.24--$12.23, depending on the regular contraception method, on how consistently emergency contraception was used when needed, and on whether mistimed births were averted forever or simply delayed. Plan B was almost always cost-saving, although less so."

    Yes well......I'm not that surprised that they are unable to understand how things work either.

    I wouldn't do this to a quote of a poster but why is it so difficult for news sources to make their articles accurate?

    Then what would be a more accurate thing to say? What would you prefer?

    Free? It shouldn't be free. It should be treated like any other medication. If you can afford it, pay for it yourself. Insurance companies should charge a co-pay like they do any other medication. Medicaid should distribute it like they do any other medication. This idea is like the massive drug bill that passed when George Bush was in office. People need to pay based on their ability to pay. No more massive government handouts.

    ..
    I get your point... but casey anthony is a bad example to use. she wanted her kid...didnt use contraceptive. And is now talking about having another baby because she misses Caylee. She wouldnt be using it even if it was free.

    Which is about to add millions to government healthcare.

    Or did you miss that?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It seems preventive care such as this is prudent financially.
