Charity is a nice thought, but there just aren't enough people giving to help everybody.
    If teen pregnancy is such a problem, perhaps on the second occurence the teen and the current fetus should be aborted in the same procedure. Everyone makes 1 mistake.

    Wow this thread is extremely disrespectful of Woman. First of all we are not paying for Sandra Flukes birth control we are paying insurance company to provide it under plan, Also Sandra Fluke wasn't asking for birth control coverage for herself she was testifying that her close friend who was sick needed birth control as treatment for her condition, it is used for treatment of some ovarian cancers, andrometriosis,menstual cramps, etc etc it is NOT just for contraception! For some it is a necessary medication to keep her periods regular , when I have time I will provide some links to medical reasons for bc , it is disgusting to read some of these threads obviously some have no knowledge of the medical benefits other than preventing pregnancy. Woman deserve better!

    Re: Should We Pay for Sandra Fluke's Contraception?

    Charities are also struggling in this economy. This past Christmas it was all over my local news stations about how Christmas for Kids (a charity) might have had to be cancelled because they just didn't have the donations (gifts for poor children). It was very sad! Thank goodness, the community pulled together and there ended up being enough but only because of the publicity it was given.

    I don't agree with giving those on public assistance cell phones and other things that are NOT necessities, but I don't have a problem with our food stamp programs, WIC programs, etc. I feel that those are necessary programs in order to maintain an orderly society. I don't know WHAT to think about the BC situation though. I know that I personally wouldn't mind having it be a part of some kind of public welfare if I thought it would cut down on unwanted pregnancies though. It's cheaper than paying for a child for 18 years.

    You can say that until you are blue in the face, and it won't make a bit of a difference, and IMO a very unrealistic approach.

Eh..but I'm getting off track here. Still, about two days ago was the worst one I have ever seen. His ass deserved it, but I resisted, as you might of guessed since I'm not in jail for assault.

    Anywho..I don't honestly see much of a problem. Birth control has always been expensive, was not provided by insurance companies, and I don't remember anything like people are describing in this thread happening. People got what they needed and went to places that provided help when it was something they needed to do like the places Cpwill brought up. Its just that people are becoming worse from what I have seen(which is why I told the above story) and they all appear to have turned into parasites and cry babies that if you don't agree to give them what they want, you are an evil, evil man. I see it everyday and honestly, I think its clearly connected to what people are talking about in here. This mindset is a disease and its unbelievable it took this long for the disease to get as bad as it has, but here we are. We have 90% of the population supporting this kind of thing and no one cares if they need to use people against their will to get what they want. I find that a real problem in a society and I do not like it.

    Women like anyone else gets what they pay for. Insurance companies are here to provide you a service and they get to decide what they want it to be.

    Insurance should cover PAP smears, breast exams and birth control.

    Conservatives should be all for this as they claim mothers are the backbone of our society and being able to care properly for each child would be greatly enhanced by birth control.

    One thing BC did for us was regulate the monthly, reduce the flow and pain. It was a great health and quality of life enhancer for my wife.

    The whole concept of insurance is we all pay in because so few can afford to pay cash upfront for even simple medical procedures.

    I don't assume to know who is homeless and who isn't. The way to cut down on people receiving public services is to just GIVE them the darn birth control. I'm sure a lot of people would use it and it would help somewhat.

    You know a faker when you see one, believe me. Then again, one of my gifts is picking up on things about people. Yes, people would use it, and I have no doubt about that. I also have no doubt it will help, but again, it's simply wrong to use people for your own benefit. I can not support it. I can only support asking for money from people that are willing to give, anything else is wrong.

    Why would conservatives be for forcing a business to provide a service they do not want to offer?
