The cost of tubal ligation usually ranges from $1,200 to $6,000
The normal cost of a first-trimester abortion runs between $350 and $550, depending on subsidies, the method used, and other variables such as cost of
as far as weather or not insurance covers it, not sure....it didn't when I was having my kids, it was considered an elective surgery....
and well, consider this, the way our insurance is being dealt with in this country, well, as long as you work, you maybe be able to afford it, if your
company is nice.....alot of companies don't even provide a insurance plan anymore...and well, far less will expand that coverage over to family plans,
my insurance plan doesn't, you want to provide it for your family, hey you pay full price for it. stay at home moms are far more likely to be
unemployed than other groups in this country!
gee, thinking back to all those backalley abortions....long ago, just wondering here....who paid for those...I mean, back then most women were lucky
if they could earn enough to live on, I don't think the women were paying for the abortions...were they?? I highly doubt it!! more than likely is
was the father of baby being aborted....
so, now we have all these guys screaming about abortions that are done in nice clean sterile environments by people who are supposedly trained medical
doctors.....and I can't help but think that at least some are the same ones crying about the injustice of the child support laws....they don't want to
support those kids anyways!! well got to ask...just what is all the griping about anyways? do they really care about the kids, or is it that they
are just ticked off that it's the women making the decisions and having the ability to pay for it themselves, and they aren't able to call the shots
by the way.....
I've reached the age where I have found the other 100% effective method of birth control....it's called menopause...
and well, there's a blind lady in poland that is an example of what happens when that small percentage is ignored.....she's blinds, the doctors told
her that if she carried the baby full term, there was a possibility that she would go blind, well, a court had to okay the abortion, and regardless of
what her or her doctors said, the court thought that risk wasn't worthy of considering...so, well, now there is a blind lady in poland trying to take
care of four kids by herself...and well, a nice judgement hand down by the international court against poland for interferring with her rights.
I had three kids, and found out I was pregnant with the fourth. Had a very hard time carrying my third, it was very hard to walk. also had a husband
who didn't want to be a husband or a dad, I was left to fend for those kids 24/7 and really didn't see much hope of that changing...
so, well, if I had carried that fourth child full term, there was a very good chance that I wouldn't have been able to care for the three! and well,
experience already told me that there would be no one around to help with that!
you can preach about not having sex all you want, but in much of the world, women do not have a choice in the matter! and, I have met a few abused
women who opted to live in a car rather than stay in their home!!! I was in a shelter once, me and my three kids walked out of the place with
pnumonia..the place was so cold...
so well, like I said, you can preach about the not having sex, wearing condoms....which is the man's responsibility anyways, all you want....
like I asked, are you willing to go without having sex with you significant other long term if one of yous decides that kids aren't wanted at the
time? you seem to being saying that na, the women can throw toxic chemicals in her body, she can have foreign objects placed inside, but na....birth
control has nothing to do with the men, who want the sex, who needs the sex...who in the past have written laws, made up commands from God, have
engineered great economic systems which well, all in all force the women to give them the sex!!
