    No one, that I am aware of, wishes to deny women their birth control. The issue is whether or not it is the responsibility of the taxpayer, to pay for birth control for all women. I personally think it is the responsibility of the woman to pay for her own.

Carrying such unwanted and unnecessary coverage only increase the cost of health insurance.

    Sorry, I only copied it 10 times. I thought that would make a strong point, but alas, I was wrong.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    It's a lot more than just birth control.

    Yes, when I was 16, I was put on birth control because my cycles would last for like 10 days, and I had horrible pain. Once I was on the pill, they lasted only for about 4 or 5 days and were less painful (still painful though).

    Because of it's health benefits, I am surprised you feel this way.

    To me, health care is a personal responsibility, not one of the state. It doesn't matter which bodily system it concerns- reproductive, cardiac, respiratory, etc. Reproductive function doesn't hold any special place in the spectrum of health issues.

    One of the most depressing days for me was when my doc cut me off after 35. I now freaking despise menstruating and the lead up to it. On the pill, it was a breeeze.

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

    Didnt answer the question because I dont know how "we" pay for it or what that even means


    but Im all for BC being covered on health insurance. Why not?

    "Could" cut down on abortions, foster care, welfare/child aid and medical costs for having a child

    sounds good to me
