    That does not relate to anything in the post of mine that you quoted.

    You O.K. ?

    If you are single and are not sleeping around or if you are 75, you don't need maternity insurance.

    Is that really that difficult for you to understand.

    It might be. One of the core conceits of the statist viewpoint is that everyone "needs" the same thing. Or at least we should. It's the job of government to decide what we need and provide it.

    I posted a link that showed various people in different states. People have a sex therapist... then they have another person that actually gives them "therapy."

    I know that I don't "need" health insurance that covers OB/GYN and maternity care but I have to pay for it
    I know that I don't need health insurance that covers pediatric optical and dental care but I have to pay for it
    I know that I don't need health insurance that covers drug counseling and rehab but I have to pay for it
    I know that I don't need health insurance that covers mental health counseling but I have to pay for it

    So you see I actually do know what insurance I need and what insurance I don't need.

    Well it does.

    How are you going to take out the insurance you need for a condition they won't give you insurance for at a price you can actually afford?

    The notion that you "take out insurance you need for a condition" is the heart of the idiocy we are mired in. That's not how insurance works. Think about it. At least try: Would you expect an insurance company to sell you a policy covering the cost of having your car repaired after it's already been wrecked? If so, how much should the insurance company charge you for this policy? Should they charge you less than the cost of the repairs? Or more?

    Just suggesting that if your argument is "What does a man have to do with maternity," there may be certain facts of life of which you are unaware.
