Let’s talk birth control
In recent weeks, many women have driven or walked up to their pharmacy window to pick up their birth control pills. They were all pleasantly surprised to get told, free. Women tend to forget if the free isn’t needed. I was with someone who did need free. What a nice surprise.
However, the free pills just generated more questions. Is all birth control free? If someone wanted a tubal ligation or a vasectomy (the operation REAL men seek) is that going to be free? What about condoms? If those are free, do you just get the utilitarian kind or do you get the fun ones? How about depro shots and IUDs? Are those free also?
It sounds like a great concept. If the financial burden is removed from the contraception equation, won’t that prevent unintended pregnancy?
Probably not but it goes a long way towards making a dent in the problem. What do the contributors have to say on this issue?
