I’ll give you a name.
Remember her? Remember her ‘problem’? She allegedly couldn’t afford birfth control. And plenty of people pointed out that, if you could afford to go to Georgetown University, you could afford a nine-buck box of condoms.
And guess what? I found an ever better deal – Walmart, 144-count of Durex ™ condoms. Ready? Thirty-five bucks. That works out to twenty-five cents a piece.
She couldn’t afford quarter-condoms???????????????????????
No, that wasn’t the point – she didn’t want to pay for her birth control at all! She wanted free birth control.
So writing up a bill to allow purchases of birth-control pills over-the-counter will not fly.
Because the point is to get your birth control for free.
As was pointed out by a FB Friend, this actually might force them to be honest about their desires. Of course, they'd likely just whip out the tired old meme 'WAR ON WOMEN' or some-such nonsense.
