    Except Tylenol was NOT REQUIRED to be offered over the counter, as will be the case here. So you as an employee of the CDC want pols to prescribe without a license?

    I would think there would be a case for the taxpayers paying for all the liabilities. Maybe we could just demand that reimbursements come from the taxpayers of the states whose pols passed this thing.

    Here we go again, eh?

    The people who most need birth control usually can't get it through their insurance unless their parents know about it, which means that a whole lot of them will not get it.

    But hey, it's available on paper, so that's all that matters.



    That's small comfort to the actual babies who are born into poverty or to parents who don't want them.

    If FREE ends up being 5 times cheaper in the long run to the taxpayer why not?

    What everyone should have and what everyone has are 2 different things. If you are going to make it difficult for women to get BC we will be seizing more money from those that earn it to pay the welfare required. How many times must one explain this to you before you get it through your fucking thick skull.

    For those who simply can't openly and honestly discuss sexuality with their parents, condoms are available OTC.

    Right to lifers see the pill no different than PP.

    right to lifers don't want the government out of controlling women's choices.

    OTC gives women too much freedom.

    More correctly it takes too much power out of the Right's hands.

    Nope. I know plenty of pro-life people, myself included, who would be perfectly fine with birth control pills being OTC.
