Of course, the fact that free and available contraception would reduce abortions concerns conservatives not a whit.

RGR28 (not RGIII): "Of course, the fact that free and available contraception would reduce abortions concerns conservatives not a whit."
With all the kindness and understanding of Jesus, the truth is, the more irresponsible children and peoples have sex and think that they have it covered, the more silly girls go to Planned Parenthood for all kinds of problems.

I AM so sick of proponents of various things (esp when the gov't is concerned) telling the "good" side of what they're pushing but with-holding the "negative" side. For instance: the CFL is dangerous, hazardous waste.

Sexual intercourse is an act performed by two consenting adults! I doubt there are many who do not know what can result from such an act should one or both choose to engage without some sort of birth control.

The real question though is who should be required to pay for said contraception since one can choose to abstain and thereby eliminate that possibility. Pregnancy is not an illness or disease!

My viagra isn't covered by Medicare so I have to either pay for that out of pocket or forget about sex. If Ms Fluk wants to fluk around then SHE should be the one paying for the pleasure she gets from doing so, not the insurance company or her employer who provides her with health care coverage.

On MSNBC this afternoon, Sandra Fluke truly outdid herself, attempting to argue that the people who disagree with the contraception mandate on religious freedom grounds are in the same category as people who oppose insurance coverage for leukemia.

What's important to note is that some of the folks who are continuing to object to this policy are actually worried about employers who are private companies, not religiously affiliated employers in any way, but the boss has a particular religious concern, and they want to be able to deny...
