wingnut396: 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?IIRC, its even better yet...She was asking for the STUDENT health insurance plan to cover birth control in the same manner that the EMPLOYEE/STAFF health insurance plan does.Thats right. At G-Town it was A-Okay for the staff to get heathen, around the block sex murder drugs, but God sure as hell draws the line at adult students that are paying money to go there from getting the same treatment.
Polly Ester: Philip Francis Queeg: So you don't carry any health insurance and pay for all your procedures and prescriptions yourself right?I don't have to force a catholic charity to buy condoms for me.
lordjupiter: Eat Fun Dip out of my ass.
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.

Felgraf: 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.They are. Health insurance is *part of your compensation*. It is PAYMENT YOU ARE GETTING. Or, rather, something you are getting *in leiu* of higher pay.And amazingly, a lot of people take it for non-sex related reasons. Like, say, controlling Ovarian Cysts.Which was, if you, you know, bothered to actually inform yourself, what she was talking about. In fact, she wasn't even talking about *herself*, but a friend who'd had her birth control (for ovarian cysts) denied, and had, if I remember correctly, been forced to have an ovary *removed* because of that. She was citing how excessive religiosity could, in fact, harm people with *LEGITIMATE HEALTH ISSUES*.
lamecomedian: ...which is why, in the spirit of compromise and open-mindedness, she advocated only for providing funds for those specific health issues, not for general birth control, right?Oh wait... she didn't?
