    I keep hearing girls say they should have the right to receive free birth control, and that us men shouldn't get into it. Guess they forgot that birth control is funded by the tax payers, many of whom actually happen to be men. So, our opinion on the matter kinda sorta matters.

    Anyways, if we take away birth control, we'd probably be stuck paying for abortions. Which is a big issue for me since I'm 100% pro-life and I think those that are pro-choice should exercise their right to not have sex sometimes. Rape however, is a different story.

    And finally, if we get rid of both birth control and abortions, we will ultimately be forced to pay for the welfare of these families and single mothers who have those unprecedented babies.

    So, which one would you feel better paying for?

    Conservatives should want to pay for birth control, because it is cheaper in the long one, and birth control is more moral than an abortion.

    I am happy to pay for abortions and birth control. It doesn't worry me as I think these things are what people are entitled to.

    But then, I am a liberal.

    The question (if it's even still a question) is whether private insurance companies should be required to provide coverage of contraception without co-pays. That means it's financed by everyone who is enrolled in that insurance pool, male or female, and paying premiums.
