    do you think getting rid of free birth control for poor people would lead to more personal responsibility? if so, how?

    or do you think it would lead to more unwanted pregnancies and more kids who have a statistically lower chance at becoming productive members of society?

    The right does pony up, to charity. The left chooses to donate other people's money, generally for their own use.

    yes, it is sad that people are so stupid they can't prevent a pregnancy without free birth control. that is sad as hell. it's the world we live in, though, and we can either choose to let the problem get worse or we can choose to support successful programs that are proven to help address the problem.

    I'm just saying that I share little responsibility for how my tax dollars are spent. But I feel better about it when they are spent on noble things like unwanted pregnancy prevention, then gratuitous wars. That's all.

    CB, you're not suggesting that the left is uncharitable..........? And paying taxes is incumbent upon all citizens, it's not a partisan thing.

    do you believe that taking away free birth control will lead to increased responsibility or better outcomes for society?

    do you believe that taking away free birth control will save the taxpayers money in the long-run?

    Didn't suggest it, I said it. Oh, they are extremely charitable, when it comes to spending other people's money.

    No that precisely why it shouldnt be funded by the govt, it was successful on its own funding

    and it's off-topic, I know, but being a democrat is not something you "admit" to. to be a democrat you have to actually go down to the DMV and get yourself registered as a democrat. if you haven't done that, you're not a democrat.
    That's exactly what im talking about people who hate "labels", if your an independent who always votes democrat you are a democrat no matter what the (DMV, really? is that how they do it in your state?) DMV says

    Nope. I said what I intended, no need to reinterpret in your own words.
