    yeah, you think that because you're unable to view the world in a reasonable, objective way. the discussion has always been about the fact that it's a successful program which has reduced unwanted teen pregnancies, which reduces the need for welfare, food stamps, etc.

    I view it in a different way than you do, that does not negate my views, it means they are different.

    in my opinion, your failure to look at the issue objectively does in fact negate your views. doesn't mean I get to have more of a say than you do or anything but yeah, your views on this issue are ****.

    It's an interesting state-first approach when state funding is considered equivalent of "allowing" and the state ceasing to fund is considered the equivalent of "banning" or "killing".

    But yes, the dichotomy between those who insist that we fund their uteruses, but not ever assume that with money comes decision-making capability is entertaining.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    Interesting, you miss the reason the program was stopped. Why was is stopped by the GOP?

    A: They hate poor people

    B: They hate anything not Christian Marriage

    C: The state constitution forbid spending on abortion inducing procedures, medicines or other causes.

    I'll let you show us your world view.

    okay. your views on this issue are still ****. you keep harping on the "giving away stuff for free" issue when that's not what people are discussing. we've been discussing the benefits of the program.

    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.
    Another government program, who would have thought? We've been running deficits for that last 100 yrs, with no end in sight. The program was previously funded by a private donor, as it should be.

    The benefits of the program is not one of concern of tax payer dollars. It was privately funded keep it that way.

    That's immaterial, it was unconstitutional.

    No, we've been discussing the funding of the program. You and others here think it's just terrible we haven't fallen for this rather obvious sales ploy by an IUD manufacturer. Further you believe that IUDs are harmless considering you or someone you know used one once and they/you are okay. You do know that not all the thalidomide mothers had flipper babies, right? Some touted it as a wonder drug.

    Lots of programs could be very effective, heck forced sterilization will reduce unwanted pregnancies nearly every time, and it's cheap. Don't think it hasn't been suggested, and by luminary figures (eugenics). But we don't do that for moral reasons. Just as we don't fund elective birth control.
