I don't know how that would work out because the we'd just have an endless circle. We all know that beer makes everyone look better after you have a few, so free beer would lead to the need for even more free birth control.
in all seriousness though, I'm a woman and I don't think anybody should get free birthcontrol! Anybody else tired of seeing less and less of your paycheck because of all the taxes that go towards the give me's?

The best way to expose absurdity is to use absurdity... this is pretty funny, and a great point.

weak argument..
less births equals less money the state has to pay to support poor single moms/ unwanted children. preventitive spending.

more alcohol equals more money the state has to pay for rehab, stopping drunk drivers. medical industry has to put higher premiums because alcohol related injuries (car) are the number one killer and maimer of people under 35.

saying birth control is recreation and not worth paying for is a valid argument, but you have to remember that its a preventive cost. and comparing it to free alcohol just does not work.


That's easy.. Mandate that BC MUST be used by all wellfare recipients.

Shiner for me please!

All due respect GEL,

Sandra Fluke's reason for asking for free contraception, by her own words, were related to her sexual activity, not any pre-existing medical condition.

Medication prescribed by a doctor, for a medical condition, should be made available to those in need, as you stated.

This is simply not the case for Sandra Fluke. If she has any medical condition with regard to this situation, and the pill is the answer to her problem, it is sex addiction.

The therapy she would require to combat that affliction would be available for free.

Quick newsflash for you. Birth control pills and other types of birth control aren't just used for birth control. For many women, they are relief for terrible periods, awful cramps, heavy flows and other hormonal balance issues. On a side note, will there be free wine involved as well?

Only if you mandate it for all right wing couples.

Conversely if Beer and other alcohol was more expensive then we would all probably need less birth control to start with.

Free Beer is just going to lead to more birth control needs which will again lead to even more free Beer, it's a exponential spiral of terror

That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. You getting free beer won't prevent a population explosion...free birth control will and the world is over populated as it is. Don't be so foolish. Fertility is a threat to humanity more then you realize.

My logic got a little convoluted there I know

but the point stands, Fluke did not need the BC for a medical condtition.

Ms. Fluke pretty much made herself out to be a whore, in my opinion.

Any woman who sleeps with someone just for the pleasure of it, and not as a manner of bonding...especially if she does it frequently...is a whore.

Free birth control? Why not just tell all of America to be promiscuous and sleep with whoever you like?

I thought prostitution was illegal, and rampant sex was frowned upon. A little integrity, please...

Adolescent girls and young women are frequently prescribed birth control pills for irregular or absent menstrual periods, menstrual cramps, acne, PMS, endometriosis, and for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Girls who are diagnosed with PCOS are often prescribed oral contraceptives to lower their hormone levels and regulate their menstrual periods Medical Uses of the Pill

You do raise a valid point but...and here's my but. This hormonal supplement has very far reaching actions on the body of a woman. I do not trust the medical industry much and certainly when it's a pill anyone, man or woman, swallows for 21 days (so I thought) out of 28 for years at a time. It's not like it's an aspirin, more a complete hormonal regulation system. Then some women in later life need to go on Hormone Replacement Therapy. Isn't it kinda strange?

Condoms are given away free all over the place. College, High school... apparently and sad...

I dont feel that taxing the already overly taxed population of america is right. I should NOT have to pay for someone elses sexual appitite unless they pay for my food appitite. Even still.. That's something that communist do, not free people!

Sex as a recreational pursuit should not be subsidized by tax payers.

Once it is, then every other recreational activity is also up for grabs.

I like boating. Will the tax payers buy me a boat?
I enjoy flying. Will the tax payers purchase my plane?
Beer is already covered.


The point is, we are being asked to pay for something that is a voluntary act. This law school chick sounds like an entitlement whiner (as well as a hoor) to me.

My girlfriends birth control is $20 a month.

When I was single, I was spending WAY more than that on condoms. Wheres my free stuff?

I'm entitled to free stuff right, or do I need to be a braindead Liberal to qualify?
