    I wouldn't recommend hiring Ms. Fluke if she ever becomes a lawyer. She sobs before congress that it costs co-eds $3,000 for the magic pills. Apparently you can get birth control pills for a couple of hundred per year at any Walmart or CVS.

    I heard they're free at Planned Parenthood places, and $9 at Walmart or Target. And BTW, condoms are a lot cheaper. Or you could keep your pants on.

    how much is viagra? that's covered by insurance, idiot.

    birth control pills are prescription medication and should be covered like every other prescription medication.

    stop whining.

    Not sure that's a fair comparison. Birth control pills are available at Planned Parenthood, or at Walmart for $9, and it's not for treating an existing medical condition like Viagra is. And i don't think Viagra violates any religious tenets that I know of, it's not like a church or religious school is ordered to provide that coverage against their beliefs.
