    As a mechanism of control, not empowerment. If the government can empower the body politic to the effect of making it more capable of informed decisions and investments, then it should.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    if the government is paying for it, it controls it. You can (consistently) have one, or the other.

    The IUD does not cause sterility.

    IUDs and Infertility:

    One of the common causes of infertility is tubal blockage. Approximately 1 million infertility cases are due to tubal disease. If left untreated, PID can cause inflammation and permanent blocking of the fallopian tubes. There appears to be no evidence that IUD use is associated with future infertility.
    Does the IUD Cause PID and Infertility?

    So typical. Here again comes the right with no desire to help folk prevent unwanted pregnancy, all along refusing to help the children born to those who don't want and can't afford children.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    again they didn't kill the program. if the grant ended then the person that setup the program chose not to fund it.
    why do liberals have to lie?

    nope not at all. if you want to buy birth control for women then please go spend your own money setup an online program or charity to do so.
    why should tax payers be on the hook for what should be your responsibility?

    PS IUD's are not 100%.

    you're just looking at the issue from one perspective. of course any human being should be able to manage their own reproductive care, but if it's better for everyone to just give it to them for free, then why not? I suppose you could say that if we give it to them for free, they'll never learn the error of their ways, but I really don't believe that just letting a problem get worse is the best way to handle that problem.
    If you gave them houses, cars, and a $50,000 yearly tipend, why think of the economic boom! Oh, and throw in food stamps, and free health insurance. Why think of how wonderful it could all be...

    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.
    "This crosses a line," says Republican Kevin Lundberg, who chairs the Senate Health Committee in Colorado. In Lundberg's view, an IUD can count as an abortion, and this makes it impossible for a program that funds IUDs to receive state funding. "The state constitution says no direct or indirect funding from the state shall go towards abortion," Lundberg says.

    IE you can't rebute anything I said thanks.

    you also forget 1 thing it is in the constitution that the government supply for the common defense.
    there is nothing in there that says government should pay for your birth control.

    so your point is moot.
