    Studies done in the 70s, 80s, and early 90s showed an increase in serious pelvic infections and infertility among IUD users. As a result, for many years, practitioners strongly cautioned women against getting an IUD if they wanted to have children later, and often refused to provide IUDs to childless women due to fears about infertility. IUDs were also routinely denied to women who were not in long-term, stable relationships because of concerns they might get an STI that could be exacerbated by an IUD.
    Only studies done after this ignore the risks. In fact there is currently a class action suit against one maker (Mirena). I suspect this is another government con job. They're willing to accept a percentage of problems as long as they can control the herd.

    Because they want to EXPAND the program. The private grant money only goes so far.

    the same reason we need to extract money from taxpayers to build roads and pay for police.

    So dumb...on multiple levels.

    I wonder how many prevented unwanted pregnancies by low income individuals pays for the cost of the program?

    Roads and police are infrastructure, giving iuds to poor people is charity.

    The government shouldn't be paying for a woman's private birth control. If she's poor she can get of medicaid and have the state pay for it via insurance. This whole entitlement to free birth control is wrong. Manage your own reproductive health and foot your own bill. Why waste money here when it can go to managing chronic disease or life threatening health problems?

    okay that's fine, but it's still the correct answer to your question. we extract money from taxpayers for all sorts of things that advance the public interest. you may or may not agree with taxation on certain things but if you ask the question you should expect an answer.
