Awesome, congrats.

Repealing Obamacare now officially includes wanting to repeal free mammograms, colonoscopies, women's health screenings, breastfeeding support, contraception, and other women's services. Good luck with, GOP!

I think men should get mamograms.

Well technically over 2000 men get diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the US, and about a quarter of them die from it.

His head is in the way.

I'm sure he has been a stalwart activist at the unfair pricing practices of women's healthcare all these years, as well as the disparity in pay wages.

Does it cover prostate screenings for men? I see all those pink ribbons to raise breast cancer awareness, but no brown ribbons for prostate cancer awareness, despite the fact it kills as many people as breast cancer does.

/its not as dramatic a loss when removed however.

It's a blue ribbon and they do a big push (heh) every Father's day.

Michael Milken does a thing during baseball games and money is donated for every home run hit on Father's day. Usually players and coaches wear blue ribbons and other gear. Similar to the pink bats and ribbons on Mother's Day.

I know plenty of women who'll vote against all of that, as long as the candidate mentions Jesus while standing in front of a flag. While it's true that a good number of indie-minded women have wised up to the GOP, you can't really fix Stupid. If you could, people in trailer parks and living on food stamps wouldn't be cheering for people in cowboy hats who want to cut their food stamps.

I'm a guy and had to get a mammogram earlier this year for a suspicious lump which thankfulky turned out to be nothing to worry but if it grows anymore I'll have to get another one and ultrasound. I was also the third guy who got one that day. While I'm am a biatchubby I don't have huge moobs, anyone can get it. It's a mixed bag with guys because while bumps are easier to detect because there's usually less overall tissue, guys tend to wait way longer to get such bumps checked out because of the obvious uncomfortableness of the situation. Hell, I'm as pinko liberal commie as they come and even I waited over a year.

Long story short: check your moobs guys.

That site is like a modern day 90's page.
You've got the animated clip art greeting; a weird/creepy backround; craploads of links; and the page is even ridiculously long.

The geocities-izer struggles to make an impact:

Funny thing is, that is the same derp that conservatives use against gay marriage.

"Gay's are still free to marry a member of the opposite sex, therefore DOMA is not discriminatory."

In all honesty I searched for better website to submit -- you know, one that's less Obama-y -- but I couldn't find anything else. I just searched again and found a HuffPo link -- I suppose that might have been a little better.

/oh well

How about screening for testicular cancer? And, if one is so interested, shouldn't it also include urethral scans?
 
2012-08-01 04:03:40 AM  
I mean, my real question is, couldn't we just make health care free for everyone...?

Wait, can I get free colonoscopies too? My last one set me back $1000 and that was with insurance.

I was going to come in here and say that site's a little creepy with hero worship, but THIS. My dad had breast cancer in 2005; thankfully he's still with us despite that and some other health scares. It's a thing that happens. Pay attention.

Well 1% of men in the US will developed breast cancer so, while rare, it is a real threat. So time to smoosh some moobs.
 
2012-08-01 07:05:26 AM  
I still don't understand mandating that all contraceptives be free regardless of type and cost (there's no longer a copay). I choose to get a type of hormonal birth control that's pricier than the alternatives, because it's more convenient for me. In the past, I had to pay a copay of $70 for 3 months. There were other alternatives I could take where the copay would be way less. I choose a more expensive one, so I paid a more expensive part for my share. Now, I will pay $0 no matter what option I choose and no matter how much it costs the insurance company. Great for me, but it doesn't seem fair. It seems like I should pay more if I choose something more expensive when there are suitable alternatives that are much cheaper.

Anyhow, I just paid my $70 a few days ago. Maybe I should have waited until today to refill. :/

bmihura: Free? No tax dollars spent? Awesome!


Like I said, it cost me $1000 for a colonoscopy WITH insurance. I am THRILLED to pay more in taxes if I can get decent preventative health care without breaking my bank account.

I'm not scared of taxes like some dimwit Republican. I understand they are inevitable, like death, and sometimes, they do good work.

Somewhere, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is the point.

The people in this thread are not only missing it, they missed the flight which laid over next to the spot where they would have missed the connecting flight to that point.

Nothing is "free." It just means someone else is paying for it.
 
2012-08-01 07:07:45 AM  
If by 'free' they mean higher copays will now be required on the front end to pay for something that can no longer be charged for on the back end, sure.

Ooo look at your big brain! Did you just figure this out today?

So what? We're a country and a society. Big deal if your tax dollars help your fellow countrymen live longer, unless of course like your standard Republican, you hope they all die if they don't act and think like you anyway.

I think my insurance company has been fleecing me for the price of mine, as the amount I pay seems to vary from year to year, month to month, or even between pharmacies (same company, different location). Since graduating college, I've wondered if bc is set at market price, like lobster or crabs.

So, meh to them.

No, he's right. If women's preventative health services are free, then men's should be as well.

/abortion is not preventative, let's get that out of the way
//men's health is just as important as women's health
///today should be hailed as the day when EVERYONE'S Preventative Health Services are paid for by our tax dollars, instead of out of pocket
/libs are retarded
