Well, I initially thought it would be an easy opinion answer to the question - course then ya' gotta determine what program - or maybe a brand new program - if a subsidy is needed..

 

Oh, it has been discussed before here - remember the "pink tax"

Have to wonder how the men on this thread could be telling women about sanitary napkins?  Unless of course they personally have a need for them? 

 

Just saying...........

NYT 08/29/2018 - Scotland to Provide Free Sanitary Products to Students

 

A parttime job on or off campus does help pay for incidentals.

Do we need a subsidy or a manufacturers program for low/no cost supplies for these female indigent?

 

 

 

 


I've read this over a few times and I'm still a little in the dark about what your point is - the entire thing seems far-fetched and quite absurd................................so I hope you keep that in mind when you're reviewing my response - it's made with the same intent as this post

 

Hysterectomy at Puberty for all Females living in the USA

 

This would solve all the Arguments over who gets nominated for the Supreme Court and why - it would also allow female indigents living in Poverty to concentrate their resources on things like Vision & Dental Hygene...................the Little Sisters of Mercy and Hobby Lobby could spend their extra savings on supporting Homophobic Bakers........................

 

Well, in closing - I think there are many more problems solved than created with this approach and I beleive I've certainly made my point........................................

 

If you want to suggest the way to solve problems is by cutting of Noses to Spite Faces - I'm down

 

 


Sorry, I had no idea that it would be this confusing - thought the link said it all.

I really didn't think about it as a problem - the cost of sanitary products for females in college.

Let's not get into the ridiculous.  Rags would still be a cheap alternative - external use so there is not a problem with Toxic Shock.  Many women had to come up with something before the invent of sanitary products (thank goodness for ingenuity and capitalism) - Wonder who invented them??

I see sanitary products as a necessity for "good health" My, My, My, Cent. Most of us don't use them anymore. We are seniors you know.

I didn't say, my good health, or yours.

Never heard anything about some sanitary products being Unsafe except something about blood clots when using some brand years and years and years ago- Sorry memory is fuzzy when I go that far back.

 

Why, of course, my grandmother and mother used something else - RAGS

 

Nay, my grandmother would have never had an abortion - to her, the more kids the better - for cheap labor on the farm.  Sorry that was the way she was - and had quite the crew.  Course she also took care of several them in their adult life, she was a senior, when they could not cope.

 

 Gail  I am glad that you clarify your post regarding other issues that had nothing to do with  birth control. I guess in a way your mother and grandmother in the farm used products that are not in the market these days.

Like all drugs, the price has increased far faster than the rate of inflation.  The cost of birth control pills now are roughly 6 times what they were in the mid-sixties in inflation adjusted dollars.


This article nor this thread is about birth control.


Then why are these lines in your first post:

 

"I know what my grandmother did and what my mother did also in the beginning before such products were readily available.

 

So what about our female college students?  They say they need free birth control - think they need this too?"

 

You need to explain to me how your comment is not "about birth control".


Please read my initial post again - Here I will repost it here again for you:

So what about our female college students?  They say they need free birth control - think they need this too?
