skullkrusher: wingnut396: You do realize, that is the whole point of Fluke's testimony. Georgetown can deny student access to medicines that can also be used for birth control. For speaking out against this, she got called a slut who had guys lined up around the block wanting sex as she did nothing but take birth control pills everyday. Her entire testimony was used a pissing platform for the Republican party and its shills to cry about having to give out 'free' (although the student still had to come up with copays, premiums and meet deductables) birth control for sex fiends.

that's fine - I have no problem with Fluke


You should not have a problem with the insurance provider, as the were following the rules set by Georgetown. The sole problem in this situation is that Georgetown admins were so afraid that adult women would get prescription for hormonal BC to treat some minor condition such as acne but really want it for birth control, that they have to put stupid rules that impact people that truly need it for other serious conditions.

This is the reason that the ACA wants insurance companies to offer it. I don't see why religious people are so upset that 'their' money is going to be used to for something that they don't want. Once the money is paid to the insurance provider, it is not longer 'theirs'. It is compensation, or in a students case, part of what the STUDENT paid for. That is what really gets me. Why the student, who is actually the customer, is getting less coverage than the employee fails all logic. If the church has a problem with where 'their' money is going, they need to reverse their stance and ban it from employees, but loosen the regulations on students.

TacoBeelzebub: The whole thing was just so ridiculous. Fluke was not asking for FREE/TAX-PAYER SUBSIDIZED birth control. She was asking that birth control be COVERED BY THE INSURANCE COMPANIES like boner pills are. Women would still have to pay a co-payment on the BC pills just like regular perscriptions and that's fine, they have no problem doing that.

Why does the GOP have this need to control women's sexuality? Are they scared of it?


Yes. Yes they are.

/control someone's sexuality, control the person.
//womenfolk are too stupid to realize they need a good strong man to protect them and provide for them.

Polly Ester: Philip Francis Queeg: Are you the type of irresponsible child who expects insurance to cover procedures and prescription drugs for you rather than being an adult and paying for them yourself?

You think a universal health plan should cover everything from nose and boob jobs to gender reassignment surgery. I would rather not have to pay higher premiums for your cosmetic micro-phallus treatments.

You're dying from cancer? Fine. The government will pay for your chemo.
When you testify before congress about the apocalyptic horrors of taking responsibility for your own birth control, you've lost me.

Anyway, I like you. And because I like you, I feel compelled to tell you that white knighting Sandra Fluke will not lead to her farking you. And even if she did fark you, she'd scrape the baby out of her uterus and make you pay for the procedure.


That's fine. I don't mind paying for her uterus scraping. It's what a responsible, working society that doesn't believe in "fark you I got mine" does for its citizens, it helps each other.

spelletrader: The birth control pill needs to be made available over the counter, put them right on the rack with condoms.


that's not such a great idea. i know several women who are either 1. on blood thinners for the rest of their lives because birth control pills gave them a life-threatening clot or 2. dead from aforementioned complication.

i believe it should be mandatory for doctors to screen patients for certain genetic predispositions for blood clotting before providing the birth control prescriptions. 

but outside of that, yes, yes it should be readily available and covered by insurance.

NO. This is a horrible idea, for health reasons. Birth Control can have some *very serious* complications. My girlfriend (now fiance) was on a generic of Yaz for medical reasons (which likely means she can't/couldn't get in on the class action, since.. it was a generic), had a stroke due to it. At *Twenty Three*. Thankfully, I had brought her home to meet my parents for thanksgiving when it happened. I say 'thankfully', because apparently the neurosergeons ant UNC-Chapel hill are like tiny, tiny gods.

I do think it should be readily available, but I would also like to see doctors/gynecologists *ALSO* talk about other alternatives (Like IUD's, etc). The pill's not always the end-all-be-all.

Your chance of dying from a blood clot related to your contraceptive is about one in a million. The chance you'll get a blood clot is well below one percent no matter what method of birth control you use.

In other words, pregnancy is a greater risk at 14.5 per 100,000 live births.

I would be surprised if you really new "several". It is true that a small percentage of people - even young people - have had serious blood clots all through recorded history, and your risk of getting those clots increases on birth control.

But your overall risk of those clots is very small without birth control, and still very small with birth control. Your chances of dying from complications during an unplanned pregnancy are thousands of times higher than your risks of dying from birth control.

i know 4 women personally who are on blood thinners after a clot, and 2 that died. personally. and i'm not miss popular either.

mostly Drospirenone to blame.

and my chances of forming a life-threatening clot from using any type of hormonal birth control is about 1 in 3 due to multiple genetic predispositions. had a relative not almost died from using Yaz, i would have never known and kept taking my birth control pills.

5% of white people have Factor V Leiden which increases the chances of developing a blood clot while on hormonal birth control to 1 in 1,500.

so no, my chances of dying from complications during a pregnancy are not thousands of times higher than dying from birth control, nor is is for people with Factor V Leiden.

Sigh... that's not how statistics work. I am sorry that you had to attend two funerals for people who died far too young from ultimately random health problems. Really, I am sorry. I do not want to sound insensitive here. But, if you knew two people who died from clots on birth control, there's a good chance that one of of them would have died from a clot even without birth control. That's just how mathematics and probability work.

And, if the hormones in birth control elevate your risk of blood clots to one in three, I think you should have a long and serious talk with your doctor about the risks of pregnancy. But I warn you -- if you're easily disturbed, it might be something that you'll feel better just not knowing.

And yes, people do die of heart attacks and blood clots. Even young people die. Even young people who are not taking birth control die. Sometimes people die young; not everyone lives to be 100. Life sucks. We're fragile meat bags.

The benefit to requiring prescriptions with yearly renewals for birth control is that it encourages idiots like me who would otherwise skip their annual Paps to get them. I might have died of cervical cancer since I had no other reason to go to the doctor at the age of 23.

That being said, it's not actually a good reason.

Wow, dang, so you're telling me that conservatives called everyone a bunch of whores, losing the White House and missing a senate majority because rape rape emergency rape legitimate rape---and they did that all because of a pill that only costs $4 a month?

And these people wanted to manage the world's largest economy.

If birth control really only costs $4 a month (bear in mind, this factoid comes from the same people who think that women chug birth control pills before having sex) then this was probably one of the dumbest efforts in the history of the Republican party, and they deserve whatever losses they have incurred.

Oh wait, it wasn't about the money, right? It was about moral and religious opposition to this immoral thing that ... that ... that you can buy at Wal-Mart. Wait, you mean the place we buy our grill and our Christmas lights? The place that liberals hate so much that they make documentaries? Where you purposely spend your money along with Chik-fil-A to show your support for traditional values? We're against evil cooter pills and anyway you can get them at the family values store!

I say 'thankfully', because apparently the neurosergeons ant UNC-Chapel hill are like tiny, tiny gods.

I'm intrigued by this statement. Were the neurosurgeons particularly small? Nanodoctors? I'm picturing a host of Keebler elves, all dressed in lab coats...


Unfortunately, ideas like that are never as cool as they sound in your head.

Xcott: CujoQuarrel: So the woman who's claim to fame is that she wasn't smart enough to go to Wal-Mart to pay $4 a month is the 'Person of the Year'?

Wow, dang, so you're telling me that conservatives called everyone a bunch of whores, losing the White House and missing a senate majority because rape rape emergency rape legitimate rape---and they did that all because of a pill that only costs $4 a month?


The most telling fact about how Republicans are lying scum, is that not ONCE did Fluke mention her own personal need for any contraception. She was testifying on behalf of OTHER women.

She's on a pretty big list of people who were influential news-makers, and the list is completely neutral as to whether they're good or bad influences. Zombie Breitbart desperately needs to eat some brains.

I'd suggest voting her up in the poll just to piss them off, but I think honestly that Xi Jinping or Mohammed Morsi deserves it.

Polly Ester: There once was a term for people who took responsibility for their own birth control, and could buy it by their very own selves.
What was it?
Oh yeah...
Being an adult.

Life was better when there was a stigma attached to being a twenty-something child.


Cry more, little one!
