Fluke Free Birth Control

  • To All Whom It May Concern,

    Nothing is free.

    With a govt-run healthcare system, abortion and contraption would be free to a great number of people, just as, to some extent, are many other taxpayer supported benefits, to the 47% of Americans who don’t pay income taxes.

    Americans who are morally opposed to contraception and abortion on religious grounds (as I am in regards to abortion) would be required to pay for these “abortion services” to which they are opposed.

    So then, where are OUR rights? Gone!

    No one forces you to have sex. It is your choice, how you live your life. So pay for it yourself.

    It’s time for many Americans to grow up. Take responsibility for your life. We The People/Taxpayers can no longer afford to pay your way in life. Shed your attitude of entitlement.
    The world does not owe you a living, just as we do not owe you birth control and abortions on demand.

    One look at Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy, will show us very clearly how socialism is working in Europe and how it would work in America: failure on every level. As an economic system, socialism is unsustainable. As a way of life, it is demoralizing and defeating in its affect on the “receivers” as well as on the payers.

    Our country needs to return to the principles of freedom, upon which our it was established. This is NOT A POLITICAL statement, rather a statement of common sense.

    If we return to self-reliance and the free-market economy that has brought this country unprecedented prosperity, then we will once again have a healthy economy where individuals can provide for themselves and their families. If we do not, we can expect the outcome that we are witnessing abroad at this very moment.

  • Her testimony before Congress was never about FREE birth control; it was about insurance coverage for contraceptive medication. At least be semi accurate in your rendition! This is a married women’s issue, who also cannot get insurance to cover birth control pills, more than it is an issue for single women.

    • Dear Deanne,
      Nothing is free.
      The point is, with a govt-run healthcare system, healthcare would be free to a great number of people, just as, to some extent, it is already, as are many other taxpayer supported benefits, to the 47% of Americans who don’t pay income taxes.
      Further and to the point: Americans who are morally opposed to contraception and abortion on religious grounds (as I am in regards to abortion) would be required to pay for these “services” to which they are opposed.
      So, where are our rights? Gone!
      No one forces you to have sex. It is your choice, how you live your life. Pay for it yourself.

      • So what you’re saying is that my insurance that I pay for should not cover my birth control? Yeah, that makes so much sense. Right.

        • NO, what we’re saying is that you are free to pay for your birth control, but that I should not be forced to pay for your inability to make sound adult choices.

          • Is it that you don’t want to pay for other people’s birth control or you don’t want to pay for other people’s healthcare, period?
