Government- stay out of my life and don't tell me what I can do with my body, except its up to you to pay for my birth control and abortions. It's nobody else's business what I do in my life, except, I want everybody else- (all the taxpayers) to pay for my birth control and abortions etc, etc. Forget that people are on unemployment longer than anytime in history, that gas is $4.25 in California, that Iran is on the brink of getting a nuke, that people's insurance premiums have gone up 30% since Obamacare was passed and people are not getting to keep their doctor & their insurance plan as was promised ad nauseum, and forget the debt will impact generations to come and the spending keeps on with no budget... I WANT MY FREE BIRTH CONTROL, along with my free education!!! Screw the church.

I support population control.

People should be allowed to kill children for up to six years after birth. Just in case.

Ms. Fluck, who its estimated will make about $150K her first year out of school, is going to school for free and feels she is also entitled to free birth control. I hope she is willing to give away her legal services for free.

I love America too, I just don't recognize it any longer. Even as a "starving student" I didn't expect anyone else to pay for my birth control. I am responsible if I get pregnant or not because the baby grows in my body and I am responsible for a child that comes from my body. If I can't afford to pay for my own birth control then I certainly can't afford to pay for a child. And since all birth control has a failure rate, if a pregnancy would be a disaster in my life, then I best not be having sex, until it would not be such a crisis. When I was in school, never did I ever think that someone else was responsible for paying for my birth control and that if they didn't want to they were "anti-woman or anti-women's health". King Obama thinks insurance companies should just give away free prescriptions of birth control. What other industry is forced to give their product or service away for free because the government dictates that they must. (I mean in America, not in a communistic country)

yeah to bad people don't know the manufacturing cost and how many jobs are going to be lost in Indiana due to this. I understand that its expensive but so is putting a drug though years of testing and approval by the FDA.

i understand both sides of the argument i'm just siding with the realistic one, Birth control shouldn't be free because spending money on it provides jobs to Americans. Also i like to see less government spending on useless items

Instead of birth control, maybe you should look for mental care.

What we must do is start taxing the rich - a lot! That way we can do something about unemployment and give out free birth control. We all live in a free ride society, let´s share the wealth!: http://struggleforfreedom.blogg.no/1320872575_the_free_ride_society.html

I love to scrw in church. Since me and my evil twin are queahs, we really don't need birth control. Just the same, we will not be discriminated against, we are demanding free condoms, valium, rolls of job squad, and white wine.

[-] -1 points by BlackSun (275) from Agua León, BC 2 years ago

No condoms? Aren't you concerned with AIDS.

[-] 4 points by DKAtroll (7) 2 years ago

Only republicans get AIDS.

No, I can look at somebody's party affiiation and tell if they nasty.

I more worried about latex reactions.

For it is written, do not lie with a republickin harlot for she surely carries petulance and plague. Do not eat, or nibble, her flesh if she has cloven hooves.

As a Catholic...BTW who writes such rabid posts...Obama should leave the Catholics alone. Half of us voted for him. Even though I take and believe in birth control, since I have so many medical problems I can't just have babies whenever, it's a big deal and my priest is ok with it, too. So .........., Benedict. If everything were natural and God's Way as he acts about the birth control issue, I'd be dead. Still, it is a religious freedom issue and Obama should butt out. We are jealous of our freedom. It has been hard won and our grandparents can still remember bad times here in the US.

As for birth control-which isn't free if it comes out of your paycheck in the form of lower wages, BTW- this is a stupid issue when there are so many other important issues, which were already addressed in the blogger's statement. So let's move on.
