Wait, are people serious . Lack of access to birth control? Where the heck do people live here? I live in one of the most rundown states, and my sister who is in college has no job other than making around $20.00 bucks a month for babysitting for a friend (who she does it for as a favor: hence the low amount) and she's able to get birth control in the nearby medical centers (and prescription places) for cheap. She doesn't even see a doctor... I'm not even sure how there is a lack of access unless someone can explain, and no she hasn't gone to a Planned Parenthood center. Also she is poor, I'm poor. Our whole family's poor so this sounds like an excuse honestly.
So they can get to PP, but not a doctor's office? Something doesn't add up there. And if anything CVS/Freds/Rite Aid would more than likely take up some of the slack. If PP is defunded completely it won't stop the flow of BC pills. Just infanticide. :l
You live in the greatest country in the world and call me privileged? Try living in Zimbabwe or Saudi Arabia, and see how much you miss the States and our privileges then.
And I'm all for BC pills and like I said, Pharmacies and Doctors will take up the slack. I care about stopping the murder of unborn humans, what you're sugarcoating by calling abortion, but I still want PEOPLE to get the best health care possible. I don't think it should be free though. But conversely, I don't think a visit should cost more than $50. But that's me, I don't run that business.
I feel you on what you're getting at, but using terms like privileged to describe someone who is only slightly better off than you is not the attitude to have. I mean, you are using the internet. I know several families that have no internet connection other than a public library. They might say that you are privileged.
Either way, of course I want PEOPLE to have great health care at an affordable price and to not have trouble finding a job or buying a house/car. I want that stuff too. I just don't want PP around killing and harvesting infants. :l
WTF? I'm not from Zimbabwe or Saudi Arabi you berk! I'm male and I'm an American! You really think either of those countries could produce an English speaking typists like me? You have way more faith in them than I do. I don't even think they know what memes are in those third world countries. They're too busy killing each other to find out.
I'm only saying that murder is wrong, not birth control. Planned Parenthood's grief is mainly the abortions, most religious people are okay with BC pills. If you would read the posts you're responding to, you might not get as offended next time. Seriously, go back and read my post before the Wonka meme. :l
