Obama eCard for Women: 'Can I Borrow $18,000 to Help Pay for My Birth Control?'
#11
Let's say for the sake of argument, birth control costs $100 a month. The eCard implies that the daughter is college age. So I understand the parents still supporting the child.

She goes to a 4 year school, so that is now 48 months.

$100 * 48 = $4800

Where's the rest of the $18,000? Is she going to keep borrowing money to pay for birth control when she's 30? Don't think so.

Unless the $18,000 includes the pill, condoms, Plan B, antibiotics (since she's having unprotected sex) and abortion costs.

That's what it costs for the co-pay under some insurance plans.

40$ a month from age 16 to age 46 is over 14,000$.
From the article:
Quote:And as John McCormack reported after the Sandra Fluke controversy earlier this year, the numbers don't add up. "Birth control pills can be purchased for as low as $9 per month at a pharmacy near Georgetown's campus. According to an employee at the pharmacy in Washington, D.C.'s Target store, the pharmacy sells birth control pills--the generic versions of Ortho Tri-Cyclen and Ortho-Cyclen--for $9 per month. 'That's the price without insurance,' the Target employee said. Nine dollars is less than the price of two beers at a Georgetown bar."

When I was younger, much younger actually, I worked at IUP and got to know plenty of the students.
Birth control was available to the students at the time for under $5.
Condoms were free at the student dispensary.

Also, Planned Parenthood by using tax dollars has always had a sliding scale for birth control.
Unless a student is making well above the poverty line, they should be getting their pills for free.

Anyone that needs birth control and cannot afford it has plenty of options to obtain it for free and anyone with a job should be able to afford it simply by cutting back on the smokes and/or morning cup of coffee at Sheetz.

When my wife was on Yaz between our two kids something about the insurance we had at the time was jacked up and they would not pay for it. We were paying $80 a month. For more reasons than I can count, I was so relieved when she decided to stop taking it.

That's because Yaz is name brand drug and I think its still under patent. Have her talk to her doctor first (DO NOT take my word alone for it) about trying Yasmin or other generic of it. Almost the same shit (slight difference in dose), different box, should be cheaper. I am not giving you medical advice, I am just telling you there are much cheaper alternatives that work exactly the same. Anyone who tells you they can tell the difference between a generic and a name brand drug is 9 times out of 10 a drug seeking piece of shit that wants them because they're easier to sell on the street. It's coke vs pepsi.

I demand that the government pay 18,000 for my gym membership, so I can stay sexy enough for women to want to do me without a condom.

Ortho can make women fat.. Smile and highly emotional (far more than normal). that's why yasmin works. It is generic now but still expensive. When it goes (real) generic life will be better for all men.

Pretty much all hormonal birth control has some degree of weight gain associated with it because most of those drugs work by tricking the woman's body into thinking it's already pregnant. The depo shot usually comes with some heavy mood swings from what I've seen. The birth control with the least possibility of side effects is the copper IUD, it also removes the problem of forgetting to take it.
