This makes me mad:
Until July 1, a low-income New Hampshire woman paid an average of $5 to fill a birth control pill prescription at any of the state’s six Planned Parenthood clinics. She might have even gotten the birth control for free, depending on her poverty level.
But since the New Hampshire Executive Council voted to cancel the state’s contract with Planned Parenthood, a woman now has to pay anywhere from $40 to over $100 for birth control pills at a regular pharmacy.
Councilor Raymond Wieczorek of Manchester added that he opposed funding for birth control and condoms altogether.
“If they want to have a good time, why not let them pay for it?”
Is there anywhere ever, ever ,ever where denying women access to birth control measures has reduced pregnancies and/or adoptions? If there is, please tell me. Because prior to social conservative conventional wisdom giving the big “fuck you” to women does jack shit to promote their jihad against women’s reproductive choice.
“We can’t even provide patients with antibiotics for urinary tract infections or STDs anymore,” said Jennifer Frizzell, a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. She said Planned Parenthood has had to turn away 20 to 30 patients a day who are showing up to refill their prescriptions.
“We have to send them away with a prescription knowing that without insurance, they have to pay the full cost of that at a local pharmacy, and many patients have told us they’re not gonna have the money in their budget to afford to fill those prescriptions.”
Because the best way to “save” fetuses is to slowly kill the mothers.
I’ll have a longer post later. I just wanted to put this out there now.
