    State health departments all around the U.S.
    Well, I can't say that you don't have a point. It's certainly not astronomical. This is from PP:

    "First, you’ll need to get a prescription. Visit a Planned Parenthood health center, a clinic, or a private health care provider for a prescription. Your health care provider will discuss your medical history with you, check your blood pressure, and give you any other medical exam that you may need. If you need an exam, it may cost about $35–$250.

    Birth control pills may be purchased with a prescription at a drugstore or clinic. They cost about $15–$50 a month.

    Planned Parenthood works to make health care accessible and affordable. Some health centers are able to charge according to income. Most accept health insurance. If you qualify, Medicaid or other state programs may lower your health care costs.

    Call your local Planned Parenthood health center to get specific information on costs."

    The health department can be even cheaper, to the tune of free.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    They don't want to provide it to you. It is their choice, not yours. You bought into what they decided to provide. You don't like it? Well, OK? What do you want me to do about it? Force them to change their mind? I'm not doing that for you. You can cry like a little baby all you want, but its still wrong to force this action on them. If you really want to be treated like a child I will treat you like one. I'm sorry, but stop crying about it. They don't want to. That is their right.

    Well then, I don't know what the problem could be. Maybe if people weren't so hung up on sex and sexuality, it wouldn't be such a "forbidden fruit" and people would act more responsibly when it came to sex and preventing pregnancies.

    People are lazy and irresponsible, welcome to world.
    No amount of free this or that, will change it.

    Who the hell are "they"? WTF are you talking about now? Can you stay focused long enough to actually respond to anything or any points that someone else said?

    Better and more thorough sex education classes in schools maybe would help? You know, there are still teenagers and young people out there who don't really know ANYTHING about sex and responsibility, but they're doing it. I've read some questions on sites like Ask.com where teens actually think you can't get pregnant the first time you have sex and ridiculous things like that.

    I didn't know many or rather any teenagers or adults, that didn't know sex can equal pregnancy.
    People aren't perfectly rational and no amount of education will change that.

    For poor people, having a kid can bring additional cash flow into your household.
    A perverse incentive that is.

    Can I ask you how I made you mad? I would like to say sorry for it, but I honestly don't know what I did.

    Anyway, you know who I'm talking about. Playing dumb isn't your strong suit. Please pick something else.
