  • I thought it was free. You can get condoms at the health dept or even in the schools (rolls eyes) and I think that if youre under a certain income level you can get free BC pills at the HD. Thats just what Ive heard, not something I actually KNOW>

  • Just curious, should all forms of BC be free? I guess I can't see the wisdom of offering any BC for free. Some are more expensive then others. I realize some work better than others for different people, but based on cost, I don't think all BC should be free.

  • You can't see the wisdom of free birth control? Can you see the wisdom of charging out the butt for birth control that most younger people can't afford and they have children and live on welfare?

  • Everything should be free. We should just give all of our check to the gov and they can provide us our basic needs.

  • Sorry, I typed the wrong words! I can't see the wisdom of offering EVERY form of BC for free!
