To really keep men out of it, women should be taxed at a higher rate to pay for women only health services.  As a man, I see no reason to subsidize selfish women for their peculiar needs.

 

BTW, my local Walgreens has all of its feminine products, such as makeup and Tampons, located closest to the entrance/exit to the store.  That means, over the past 50 years, I wasted my time walking past those products, maybe, hundreds of unnecessary extra miles to get what I want at Walgreens, thanks to women. 

 

As though, it isn't bad enough that every shopping mall has a glut of women's shoe stores.

Spermicide increases the effective rate to 95%. Pill is 91%, but isn't the discussion about who's gonna pay? Did I miss something?

I'm not against birth control. Men have some "skin" in the game too... pun intended.

Men can comment all they want, but until they are the ones who will get pregnant, the decissions must be made by the WOMAN directly involved.

 

GOPers want women subservient and for millina they've done this with the "barefoot and pregnant" technique now defended by the Republican Party.

 

The GOPer notion that it's about WHO PAYS is predicated on their absurd notion that Society has no role and Government must never protect the interests of those who cannot protect themselves.

 

Its not about pregnancy, its about POWER and Republicans demand all the power be given to men who want women pregnant if they have sex - the ultimate Scarlet Letter, one that can ruin the lives of all effected.

So ... can we all assume gender based ignorance is a "justifiable reason" to not exercise our thoughts? Slippery slope ...

That pendulum swings both ways... right?

Because most men don’t understand women’s sexual health. Birth control is a tool to manage women’s sexual health, not just to prevent pregnancy. Health care should not be managed based on religious objections.

The diaphragm is pretty inexpensive... if cost is the real issue. With an annual cost of just $60 and an efficacy rate of 85 percent, the diaphragm is the most cost-effective method of preventing pregnancy.

about $.07 a day

Men really shouldn’t comment on birth control. 85% success rate to prevent pregnancy is horrible. 

 

Plus, your cost doesn’t include spermicide. Use it without, and pick out your baby registry now.

GOP=misogyny.   They make all sorts of family values claims and apparently don't comprehend the role of sex in a well-balanced marriage.
