maybe you should go look at the long list of drugs that these programs don't cover? It's more than just the viagra..
often times people on these programs end up having to settle for what is really a less effective, although much less expensive, alternative drug.

well, even if they keep the child, if they are poor enough to be eligible for medicaid and title x funding.... more than likely the taxpayers are gonna be footing a pretty high price for the healthcare of such children...

and guess what happens when parents find that they can't afford that healthcare costs or fail to provide them with the care they need?? oh ya, they go into the foster care system. heck, social service workers have been known to counsel such families into splitting up, dad move out of the household, mom and kids go on welfare... get the kid taken care of on the gov't dime!!! it was the only way the workers could find that would give the kid what they needed!!

I've been talking to a local doctor.
His daughter plays softball with mine.
He says it's getting ridiculously hard to prescribe drugs that are covered by insurance.

What about the wasted potential for life every time a woman ovulates and wastes one of her finite number of eggs?

the generics will always be covered, and well, even with insurance, I will be more inclined to just accept those. not sure why it would be difficult to prescribe drugs that are typically covered by insurance though. that doesn't make sense.

Just look at what happened when Pence defunded it in Indiana. The HIV rate in rural areas skyrocketed. I think it's pretty dumb for Trump to want to kill off his base but he's the boss, right?

I 'member!

It’s true, some of the highest welfare receiving states are red states. But some of the states at the bottom of that same list are red states too. So I’m not sure what your point is with that.

And also, some of the states at the top of your list like Georgia have cities like Atlanta (democrat run, minority rich) that if you remove those cities would be at the bottom of the same list.

Your claim that Trump is “killing off his base” is about as sensationalist as when he got two scoops of ice cream and everybody else got one.

We've given to much power to the insurance companies. Now they feel like they know what's best for the patient. So even if the doctor prescribes something that's covered the insurance company may require a Prior Authorization, which forces the doctor to explain to them why they're prescribing that particular drug, before they actually pay for it. And even then they may refuse in favor of something cheaper.

And just how ridiculous and warped is it that a president who apparently doesn't know the difference between HIV and HPV has any voice in the matter of women's reproductive rights and health matters? Defies all common sense.

I have news for you as well, and to the other posters who are acting all concerned for the pregnant mothers whose lives are in danger from having a baby as opposed to killing it before it’s born.

The vast majority of women that I personally have known who get abortions have had far more than just one. And none of their lives were in danger. They use it as a form of birth control instead of just actually trying to use something, anything to at least try to prevent pregnancy in the first place. Most of their “planning” for parenthood is dealing with the consequences that may or may not happen later down the road.

They should call it unplanned parenthood.

I personally have known nurses who instantly became pro-life the moment they saw an actual abortion being done. It is a pretty gruesome process.

It appears the ones who always cry for freedom only want it for themselves.
Not for women though.
Land of the free? Not anymore.

Do people get mad at Republicans for constantly trying to push abstinence only instead of actual birth control methods and education which are proven lower abortion rates? Of course not.

Just google planned parenthood sells aborted fetal tissue and educate yourself.

Polishing a turd and calling it a rose doesn’t make it one.

And I can point to states like West Virginia, Kentucky, and Indiana where it's the rural parts that are receiving more welfare. In a city like Atlanta it may be an inconvenience if someone can't go to PP but they have other options.

In the Coal Belt of Kentucky PP might be the only option. That's why I'm saying this will have a larger impact on Trump voters than Democrats.

You mean the debunked Project Veritas video? Didn't they get into legal trouble for that one?

Lol the states you named are nothing BUT rural. Ever been to any of them? Drive anywhere and it’s nothing but trees on each side of the road for miles and miles.

And you’re right, this will have a larger impact on Trumps “base”, they will see it as a good thing that their taxpayer dollars are no longer going to fund something that they see as a bad thing. Many posters in this very thread have said as much.

Like a famous poster once said, first get your facts straight, then you can distort them however you please.

So cities like Louisville, Indianapolis, and Wheeling don't exist?

a reply to: Xcalibur254

They exist, but the populations of those cities in those states are absolutely NOTHING compared to the rural population that you are so valiantly championing for not getting their “free” abortions.

And you’re right, the whole project Verona’s thing was debunked by the New York Times, the Washington post, snopes etc. etc. notice a trend with any of those publications? And what of the other sources other than that video who have claimed the same thing? I guess they are all just wrong and lying?

Sorry, but I trust what I see and hear more than I do what I’m told to. Maybe that’s just me.

Congress launched an investigation into PP following the video. They found no wrong doing. But I guess they're also lying.
