You Decide, then discuss. Better yet, discuss then decide.

Should insurance companies cover birth control for women and/or Viagra for men? One might deduce that the two are interrelated, then again, one might not. That is the purpose of this discussion. Let’s decide.

  1. I do not see a distinction between providing coverage for birth control and Viagra. As we all (should) know, Viagra stimulates an erection. Birth control attempts to prevent conception. If John McCain believes that insurance companies should cover the cost of Viagra (and directly promote increased sexual activity among those whom normally might not partake), then it would be hypocritical of him not to support coverage of conception prevention. Unless of course, it is his aim to raise population growth rates in America. Then, there would be more able bodied young men and women to risk their lives in Iraq for the next 100 years.

    Thoughts?

    The gang classifies oral contraception as ABORTION. Of course, what was I thinking?

  3. Arguments aside on whether or not insurance companies should cover one or the other, I’d like to focus on the ludacrus belief that birth control is abortion. These types of people never cease to amaze me!! Always with the fear mongering.

    The birth control pill simply prevents the egg from ever leaving the ovaries which is necessary for a sperm to fertilize it. How in the heck is that abortion?? There is never fertilization of an egg therefore there is no destroying any kind of possible life. Therefore, there is no abortion going on.

  4. I’m of the opinion that the right understands that birth control is not abortion but purposely lumps them together in an effort to confuse the underinformed voter. Just as “Iraq is Al-Qaeda”, “Birth Control is Abortion”. It is a deliberate attempt by the gang to confuse the electorate.
