i noticed this shit was trending and figured I’d drop 2 cents in (shame on me tbh) birth control shouldn’t be free. at least not for grown women who can make life decisions. teenage boys can get free condoms at a clinic but once they hit 18, we’re paying 7 - 8 bucks a box. now i do think the whole “just keep your legs closed” thing is also bullshit since women use the pill to regulate their blood flow when their cycles come around, etc. so the solution? i think the price of the pill should be dropped drastically to match the prices of rubbers. i also think that clinics should have options available to teenage girls just like they do for the boys (as long as a doctor says it’s cool of course). that way there are no handouts, everyone is on an equal playing field, and no more whining about how expensive the shit is. i swear if people just stopped to be rational instead of crying like babies, stuff would get done much faster.
