I don't understand how you make the leap from "birth control is a good thing" to "the government (that is, you and I) should pay for it for others." And you might want to consider a defined benefit plan or three if you have 3 businesses and really did pay over $250k in taxes last year. (But how could you have? My accountant refuses to finalize my 1120S until treasury regulations come out. Maybe you mean the year before last.)

1) Starting in the sixties there was an explosion of children born out-of-wedlock and kids who don't grow up in two parent families fare more poorly percentage wise on just about any and every scale imaginable including substance abuse, teenage pregnancies, suicide rates, criminality and homelessness.

2) Many people are becoming so childlike in their dependence on the government that they can't save for their own retirement, escape from an oncoming hurricane, or even purchase their own birth control without the government handling it for them.

3) Our legal system encourages frivolous lawsuits, is punitively expensive...
