STFU, Conservatives: I just legitimately do not understand why my tax dollars should pay for birth control.
I’m not saying people shouldn’t have access to birth control but why do people have to pay for you to get hot ‘n heavy with your boyfriend? You are making the choice to have sex when you may not be in the financial situation to care for a child. I applaud you for taking…
You may as well ask, “Why do my tax dollars have to pay for birth?” The other, more well-known consequence of sexual congress. Taken as a whole, a birth ties up your tax dollars in interesting and expensive ways. All those schools and cops? That minivan that’s wearing out the road faster? All those government grant programs trying to find the best way to keep all these shitty kids safe and out of trouble after school?
Taken as a whole, any intelligent “not with my tax dollars!” type should realize that the cost effective thing to do is buy that rubber.
