Contraception is the best remedy to prevent unplanned pregnancies but of course I don't mean handing out condoms and birth control pills to teens.
Teens should be taught self-control and should be surrounded by adults with lofty moral standards. This discipline will help teens in their adult life by making them more thoughtful and more responsible citizens.
rabbee: the need contraception is a sign, of immoral attitudes. and means you have failed, to teach the proper respect of each other. and ties you down, with a disrespectful promiscuous evil spirit.

So why did liberals and he media run around and say that death panels dont exist and that's a conspiracy theory?
If you recollect, I said metaphorically speaking. Actual death panels do not exist. What does exist, and has existed pre-ACA, are policies directed in mass at consumers, dictated by non medical professionals, that define the standard of care covered for any medical condition. If your Dr exceeds that minimal standard, your procedure will not be covered by insurance.

Quantitative Assessment of Citric Acid in Lemon Juice, Lime Juice, and Commercially-Available Fruit Juice Products

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2...

Citric acid (2-hydroxy-1,2,3-propanetricar -boxylic acid) is a weak tricarboxylic acid that is naturally concentrated in citrus fruits. At physiologic blood pH, and to a lesser extent in urine, it exists mainly as the trivalent anion....

...Urinary citrate is a potent, naturally-occurring inhibitor of urinary crystallization. Citrate is freely filtered in the proximal tubule of the kidney. Approximately 10% to 35% of urinary citrate is excreted; the remainder is absorbed in various ways, depending on urine pH and other intra-renal factors. Citrate is the most abundant organic ion found in urine.

Hypocitraturia, defined as <320 mg (1.67 mmol) urinary citrate/day,5 is a major risk factor for calcium urolithiasis. The activity of citrate is thought to be related to its concentration in urine, where it exhibits a dual action, opposing crystal formation by both thermodynamic and kinetic mechanisms. Citrate retards stone formation by inhibiting the calcium oxalate nucleation process and the growth of both calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate stones, largely by its ability to bind with urinary calcium and reduce the free calcium concentration, thereby reducing the supersaturation of urine. Citrate binds to the calcium oxalate crystal surface, inhibiting crystal growth and aggregation.6 There is also evidence that citrate blocks the adhesion of calcium oxalate monohydrate crystals to renal epithelial cells.7 Medical interventions to increase urinary citrate are a primary focus in the medical management of urolithiasis.8

Hey there,
You'd better be careful since America is a seriously dysfunctional society where guns are legal and almost everyone owns one, most Americans suffer from nervous breakdowns or have serious psychiatric problems and besides the US is a most violent and promiscuous society with rampant drug use and the matter is made more complex by the thousands of human sacrifices undertaken by certain Jewish sects with full government knowledge on a regular basis (many high ranking intel and government officials participate in these barbaric rituals dedicated to G-d/Satan). Everything is out in the open. It's just that the law supports perversions, court rulings do the same and political leaders behave in a disgraceful manner that makes an impact on the people.
I would never want to settle down in the US given its near total perversion. I could study for a Ph.D. in the US at a top university in my chosen science discipline but I will never apply for citizenship.
So, stay safe and talk politely when confronted by the police or by ruffians.
Here is where you lacking.

Chicago has one of the strictest gun control laws and it is the crime capital of the US.

Hard to talk about something that hasnt happened yet, doofus

though, considering that health care costs have been dropping over the last few years, one COULD make the case that the premiums will go down, or at least remain flat.

One could just as easily argue that it could be worse, had it not been for those laws

Anyhow, crime "capital" is ranked indicator - totally inappropriate to link to another ranked indicator ("strictest")- that violates just about every use of statistics

In contrast the least restrictive cities have much less crime.

What happened was that the ACA set standards for coverage, and those people, primarily those who werent enrolled in group insurance (i.e. individuals, and small business) found themselves dropped because the carriers decided to discontinue their plans rather than increase coverage. The recourse is to go to the exchange, and pay a bit more, but have more coverage.

If your friend got same price - he is ahead of the game

A few days ago, because of your post, I went on the CT exchange and what I found was decent deals. Not great deals, but not bad deals either.

I get my insurance through my spouse, who has group rates thru her corporation. They dont fck around, so the coverage met the ACA standards, and therefore, nothing really changes. We havent been offered the 2014 rates yet, but the company did say they were not throwing the workers onto the exchanges.
