Let me clarify a few things here. This has been moved to "Rant" I don;\'t really agree with that, but I can't do anything about it. I think it is
political madness, myself.
First, I have no problem whatsoever with college students or anyone else having sexual relations, including outside of marriage. I do not agree with
teh Rush Limbaugh "slut" approach to this. This is not a right wing rant. I just want free beer is all.
I also do not agree with the idea that, well, this will all even out because people won't get pregnant, so insurance won't have to pay for pregnancy
care. Say what? So if you cannot get free birth control, therefore you are going to get pregnant? College students know how babies are made, right?
They could use condoms. It's far cheaper. For the cost of birth control for a year you could buy 7,000 condoms. Sufficient, I would think.
Third, I will put my conspiracy hat on. I have a concern that a government that actively encourages sex is really trying to control the masses by
encouraging what amounts to free sex parties. It reminds me of the Romans who controlled the populace, in part, by offering free access to the
Colloseum and gladiator fights (and executions) along with many free holidays because it acted as a control mechanism and kept the populace interested
in their parties rather than the corrupt political system. There is an element of that in this that should not be ignored. Encouraging hedonism means
discouraging political scrutiny.
Free birth control is not about "women's health." Indeed, quite the opposite. Birth Control Pills are bad news long term. They change body chemisty
and mess with natural hormones, sometimes permanently. They've been associated with all sorts of diseases, including cancer. If the issue really is
"women's health," then the government should be giving out free condoms. It's far safer for women and puts responsibility on men.
The point is that there is no real distinction between free birth control and free beer. Next will be free needles for drug addicts. (Oops! we've
been doing that for some time in the name of "health," haven't we?) Shouldn't we all have free iPhones, too? After all, someone without an iPhone
is at a disadvantage and we all know we should all be equal. So, free iPhones ought to be oart of the deal (complete with a government installed kill
There's no end to what you can get the government to give you for free.
