Libel and Slander
Was the statement false, or put in a context that makes true statements misleading? You do not have a constitutional right to tell lies that damage or defame the reputation of a person or organization.

You're arguing from the standpoint of your own personal experiences, so I'll do the same.
When I went to college, I went on a FULL BLOWN scholarship. Why? Because if I had to pay for it, there would have been no way in hell I could have gone. I came from a single parent home. In fact, my Dad drove me an hour and a half away to my university, dropped me off with $50 and said "good luck", then drove off. That $50 had to buy all my books and feed me for the next month. I had no vehicle. Some classes were completely WITHOUT books or by sharing with other members in my class. Sadly, we were considered lower middle class, so don't talk to me about how bad it is/was for you. I've been there, and I know. I would have to decide what meal of the day I was going to have...a PB&J sandwich or a package of Ramen Noodles, and I would space it out so I wouldn't go to bed hungry. SOMEHOW, through ALL of that, I managed to be responsible with my sexual encounters, and every single one of them involved a condom. In fact, the couple of "love interests" I had in college, involved a few "no's" at the worst possible time, because we had nothing with us to ensure a responsible encounter...so we got creative. Duh. I didn't walk around campus with a picket sign, pissed off because my weekend sexual escapades were ruined because the government didn't provide me with free birth control.
And the really sad part of this video is....polycystic fibrosis and endometriosis have BOTH been linked to birth control pills, as well as the higher increases of infertility in women who have been on birth control their whole lives.

Then there is my 'favorite' Rush quote
"You don't have to think for yourself kiddies. Let you uncle Rush do your thinking for you."
It appears that ATS enjoys an abundance of 'kiddies'.

That cartoon is a fair argument.
However on the other side of the coin, we might want to realize that the societal cost is greater for not providing birth control for low income individuals. I know the same ones of you that are against this kind of support are also against welfare. Well let me tell you, welfare is a LOT more expensive.
Think about it.

Dead air during commercial breaks and hot air the rest of the time. Seems appropriate, and somewhat ironic.
That is my opinion and I'm stickin' to it.

I didn't use to like Rush but he has a way of expressing himself, cutting
through the media bias. Liberals can't tout their abortion belief to gain votes so cry loss of liberty to do another evil, contraception. How insane.
