There are many State funded Clinics who provide contraceptives and perform abortions on a sliding scale fee based on one's income. Or through Medicaid.
And for very minimal fees or no charge to the patient as well.
However, we do pay for all of that.
And that isn't going to change, unfortunately.
Regarding the provision of Health Care for Women of low income, such as Pap Smears, Mammograms, Pre-Natal Care, I don't have a problem with; because I don't believe any Women should be deprived of or denied these treatments and services.
But, we also pay for it.
I'd rather pay for birth control so that unwanted, unexpected, unnecessary pregnancy has an opportunity to be prevented or at least curtailed.
Then there's no need for abortions, which we pay for.
Who? Us, the middle-class working taxpayer, unfortunately.
PS **The State funded Clinics "hand out" condemns for free.
They're there for the taking, along with the informational brochures. Sitting neatly packaged in a lovely bowl.
The patients in need of contraceptives should be taking handfuls!
**Also ( at some ) High Schools and ( most ) Colleges.
We pay for those too.
Who should pay for THEIR abortions and contraceptives, who?
