    THAT IS CALLED BEING LAZY. If you can make the effort to get laid every day then you can sure as hell make the effort to walk over to your local pharmacy and pick up a pack of condoms on Sundays .

    If they have been tested, there is absolutely no need for them and seeing how they are $6 a 3 pack- For people having sex atleast once a day that's over $60/month.
    Really? There is absolutely not reason for them? What about unwanted pregnancies? Oh you can't afford a $6 a 3 pack? Fine. Get a 12 pack at $7. The cost of condoms actually DECREASE the more you buy. Again. Price is simply not a reason not to buy them. $21 a month is nothing.

    Also the typical pregnancy rate for condoms is at 14%, that's only slightly lower than the withdrawal method. Compare that to actual birth control at between .01% - 5%. That's a pretty good difference and would make a bigger impact controlling unwanted pregnancies.
    How many times did you get pregnant while using condoms? I'm willing to bet none and this goes for pretty much the overwhelming majority of women who use condoms. I'm willing to bet anything the number of people who actually(your link is an estimate) get pregnant through condoms is nowhere near 14%. So again I ask. What exactly is the reason for money being thrown at this?

    Once. That's pretty much all I needed.

    However, I believe she is referring to birth control pills, IUD, tubal ligation, etc, etc. Condoms are the least convenient and least effective of the bunch. And, there are some (like myself) who are allergic to the latex and I hate to tell ya but lambskin condoms aren't $6/3 pack.

    Regardless, if you're having sex daily with the same partner, the pill or IUD, etc are the better birth control options.

    I agree with this part. Plus I do not know if I got my wires crossed on this or not but I thought I had heard on the news that some of this stuff is slated to be sent over seas.

    I really do not think any kind of increase in any type of foreign aid right now should come from a program that is about stimulating the US economy.

    Hard to say what the real future is for this package is anyway. Apparently there is talk now of nationalizing the banks because they have already plowed through the bail out money that they got and it did not work. They are still in trouble.

    That is going to cause a lot of people on the fence over these bail outs/stimulus type packages to side with enough is enough if they can't survive let em die.

    Teenagers? But hey 1069 here I'll explain why your 'once' basically solidifies my case :

    If you who, during your young years, were not the most responsible of people only managed to get pregnant ONCE then how does that justify spending literally hundreds of millions because people are too lazy to go pick up condoms?

    At least she didn't, as is rumored on campus on prof is doing, promote anal sex for straight couples to prevent pregnancy... and pay for it. I think I'd have too much fun with that one.

    "Pelosi pushes stimulus for buttsex"...
    HAHAHA man that cracks me up now.
