Actually your reasoning is completely sexist. You used a an apples and oranges scenario, but made them fit one round peg.
Pick your topic. Is your topic about sex being an option, not a need, sort of like a hobby, or is it about the biological differences between men and women.
Because it doesnt matter if the equipment is functioning well or not, sexual function is not a necessity.
Both men and women make the babies my dear.
Women have the extra need of pregancy protection to be equalized for the body types.
Are you saying that your medical service plans, ie the cost of the doctors appointment or clinic visit, is not covered for reproductive issues????
This post is not to disparage you personally but the assertion that your argument is Conservative.
We Catholics view human nature as entirely different as Liberals. Man is not inherently free and independent; we are members of the Body of Christ. Naturally we are social and political animals; requiring law, culture, and religion for proper order. Law is not meant simply to prevent harm but is derived from, and meant to advance, the “good”. This means that the law must be derived from Divine law, restricting human behavior so as to prevent sin and self-destruction; so virtue is necessary both within a legal context and a personal context. Merely protecting the “right”, as the Liberal state does, is not what society is meant to do; it must protect the “good”.

I, however, am something of a sexist. I will always hold a woman as having superior value to myself and place her above my own interests. It is somewhat naive, and makes me prone to being exploited by the opposite sex, but let that be as it may.
Uh yeah - - and that's why I could tell immediately you were a guy from the "tone" of your posts.
If you held women superior - - you would support their independent right of choices (got that? choices - as in all forms of choice).
You don't hold women superior. You put them on a Man's version of a pedestal. I jumped off that years ago.
I suggest for you to read this: The Conservative Vision of Authority
That a married couple who engage in intercourse while wanting to avoid pregnancy is somehow the issue of the woman being a "whore" who can't keep her legs crossed?
Making OBCs over the counter is a dangerous frivolous thought. They are not without risks
In Mexico, oral contraceptives are widely available without a prescription, and women using them without first seeking medical advice were no more likely to have contraindications than those who saw a physician. Two US studies showed that potential oral contraceptive users could identify contraindications to oral contraceptives, except for unrecognized hypertension in older women, using a checklist.
Regarding concerns that women will not use oral contraceptives correctly when they are made available without a prescription, Dr. Grossman points out that little evidence suggests that clinician counseling is useful, and that even when a clinic visit is required, compliance is not perfect.
and physicians use the yearly prescription renewal as a means to get the women in for health/cancer screenings. That is a good thing.
But when it comes to telling a woman who has the strike against her of being impregated easily, or a man who has this outie that might need help to keep functioning, you are talking about TWO EQUAL BUT DIFFERENT BODY TYPES.
Women need to be kept safe from unwanted pregnancies, which is what any conservative wants as well.
Women have female unique problems, their lives get broke easily.
Both sexes, need specialized and abundant health care.
Hate to be the one to tell you but...a Latex Condoms Matrix is not constructed tight enough to prevent the H1N1 VIRUS from permeating the CONDOM...so even though some protection is better than none....Condoms as not completely effective in preventing the spread of AIDS. Also...yes the state is entity providing the Hospitals licensing and certification but if you want Federal Money for updated Emergency Room Equipment or More money for a Highly Trained first responders unit this money comes from the FEDS so you sometimes have to play by their game. Case in point...Nancy Reagan BEGGED a Republican controlled Section of the U.S. Legislature to allow the use of STEM CELL that are thrown away after invitro-insemenation....continued..Split Infinity

An Insurance Companies right to opperate or be able to get a licence falls under the jurisdiction of the State and Federal Goverment.
I wasn't aware the Federal Government was granted the authority to regulate business licensing. No such authority is granted under the Constitution or its amendments.
The State government, however, has every right to establish licensing laws. The complete lack of Federal domain means that States can, legally, formulate any set of laws and criteria governing business they so desire; so long as it is developed in accordance with their State's constitution.
If you don't want to use a condom...or take the pill or any other type of contraception Plan B or whatever....no one can force you to....the rights of another individual who wants or needs this contraception.....must be covered under the laws of the land.
I'll recycle the argument I used, earlier.
Everyone should have virus protection on their computer, right? It helps to protect them from malicious programs that can put their finances, identity, and even personal security at risk.
As such, the Government needs to ensure that every person who wants it can have access to it. Because of this, any company contracting internet service to a customer must, also, provide virus protection ("free of charge") to the customer under the proposed legislation.
You use AVG - a free program, but not considered up-to-snuff by the legislation's arbitrary standards (correct or incorrect, it is the law). Your internet provider still has to provide you with a valid software license. As such, your internet premiums will have to go up - IE - you are being made to pay for a program that you don't use and don't want because someone else has been deemed to require it.
Does that put the issue in a less emotionally-charged context for you?
I am probably going to regret butting in here but....What the Hell! It's like a trick question. A question that certain Professors LOVE to ask of their students knowing full well it means...NOTHING!

Doesn't freedom of choice end when it removes freedom of choice from another?
I don't understand that.
Guess what, once a human body can reproduce, each individual HAS THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE THAT FOR THEMSELVES.
And once the sex card is up and running, they also have the right to choose how they view their sexuality, and whether they want to be virgins until marriage and owned by a patriarchal system or not. Or not.
Hate to be the one to tell you but...a Latex Condoms Matrix is not constructed tight enough to prevent the H1N1 VIRUS from permeating the CONDOM...so even though some protection is better than none....Condoms as not completely effective in preventing the spread of AIDS.
THIS IS WHAT SI AT STAKE AND....YOU are worried about a few kids having sex?
