Is this something they are thinking of implementing or this just a random question?
Usually if you qualify for food stamps you qualify for medicaid. In my state if your child is on Medicaid you are on plan first (free BC). So in essence you are able to get BC if you are on food stamps. If you are on food stamps I wouldn't think you would actively TRY to get pregnant. I don't think I would be comfortable if the govt stepped in and MADE me take BC.
As for the men aspect, I think PlanFirst should pay for Vasectomys. My DH would get one if we had the money. And in the long run they are cheaper than BC and less evasive (and probably less expensive) than a tubal!

I am with yourspecial. I think that ALL PA should stop increasing after a certain number of children. That's not saying you can't have them, just that the amount you get has limits. Its called public ASSISTANCE, it's not meant to support you completely, nor should it be expected to support women and men who can't take responsibility for their actions.

Hey anon :37 - you wanna go tell that to the Octomom? She knocked herself up!
BOTH parties are responsible. Where are the men who helped create these children, and why are they not stepping up and taking responsibility? Just as a woman should be "closing her legs", as you put it, men should be equally responsible for sticking it in!!
