    man, our government schools can't even teach math. I'm thinking betting on them to adequately handle an issue as personal, complex, and deeply intertwined with human morals and nature such as sexuality is going to be a losing one.

    Yes, LOL, good point. There are never easy answers.

People acting irresponsibly with their bodies is also life. Society will never be perfect and neither will the people. IMO, it's a good idea to pay for birth control and at least TRY to cut down on the number of unwanted pregnancies and abortions. That alone is worth it to me. Our taxes already support families on public assistance.
    I just disagree with all public assistance programs, sorry.

    Yes, but without them, there COULD be a lot more crime, and I don't like the idea of making children suffer for the "sins" of their parents.

    I don't either, but I can't accept a wrong to resolve it. It's just something I can't do.

    No, she should pay for her own, and if it's a big enough priority in her life, she will pay for her own.

    I think everyone agrees that you should pay for your own children, but that is unrealistic because they just don't. We are still going to have teen pregnancies. I think (not sure though) that pregnant teens and teen mothers probably make up a HUGE percentage of those on public assistance. I don't know what else anyone would suggest. Charity is a nice thought, but there just aren't enough people giving to help everybody.

    There are a number of other conditions for which contraceptions are prescribed than just to prevent pregnancy. It's a private matter between the purchaser(s) of the insurance and the insurance companies.
