    Your disagreement is based only upon medical risks from an IUD?

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    teen pregnancy been on decline now for 25 years. I doubt a single Colorado program's cancellation will reverse that trend.

    Yeah, I enjoyed how quickly people jumped to confuse "has contributed to" with "has caused".

    Excellent. I can't imagine a single way one should consider birth control as an appropriate role for government.

    so they didn't actually kill the program like the OP made out.

    they just chose not to expand the program with state funding which is 100% different issue altogether.
    why is it that liberals have to lie?

    Republicans in the Colorado Senate killed an effort this week to set aside funding for a birth control program that provides IUDs to low-income women. The Colorado Family Planning Initiative has been praised for contributing to a 40 percent drop in teen births over the last five years. The program, previously funded by a private donor, won an award in Washington, D.C. just days ago.
    so they didn't kill the program they just won't allow state funds to be used in the program. so how did they kill it again? the program still
    exists does it not?

    why are you and this hack of a reporter who should be fired being deceitful?

    No. The grant ended. There is literally no more program. It was a limited program, they wanted to expand it to the public at large, they did not, and the grants is no longer funding it at all.

    What's that pro-choice slogan? Get the government out of the uterus?
