    I don't think it's a valid concern.

    But if a guy is that deceitful and ignorant he's got no business being a father at all, so it's a service to society that he doesn't get a girl pregnant.

    I'm a big fan of more (safe) birth control being used - not less.
    I've seen the deceit with my own two eyes go the other way - a woman that intentionally gets pregnant while knowing the man involved does not want that to happen. While it definitely takes two to tango, if there is an assumption that birth control is being used (and I mean "assumption" in that the guy has been told birth control is being used) when it actually is not being used, that is fairly devious. And it happens all the time.

    This scenario popped up on an episode of Scrubs, when Turk slipped the pill into chocolates for Carla because she was baby crazy and he didn't want to have one yet. It wasn't that big of a deal in the fictional TV world, but there are implications of messing with someone's hormones in the real, legal-based world.

    have you heard about the lawsuits on Yaz? It was a nice BC product marketed as a safer alternative because it was a low dose BC pill. Intere3stingly enough the product causes high potassium levels and pancreas damage in a number of people. Damage which would have been preventable has the rise in potassium been caught by lazy doctors who consider it safe and therefor did not blood test the women. These products are hormone products and they do cause strain on many systems and should be accompanied with simple blood tests in order to make sure they are not causing damage.

    Oh, and as for people who do, I did. Yes, i know about this problem because my doctor happened to catch it quickly and i just switched. Amazing how later i saw many women with stupid lazy doctors, and probably greedy insurance companies who didn't want to pay for a 50 dollar blood test, are now having health problems.

    Is it possible some conservatives are finally starting to get with the program?

    I guess we'll see.

    Not the religious conservatives or those that are from districts where the religious right gets you elected. Jindal is looking at it from a financial aspect...put it over the counter then the govt and insurance companies dont have to pay for it...wont happen I dont think
