Absolutely and so should the GOVERNMENT. Whether or not a woman has an abortion is nobody's business but HER'S, her DOCTOR'S and her GOD(s). EVERYONE ELSE needs to just BUTT OUT.

Who is regulating birth control?
I don't see abortion as birth control.
I am for prevention not killing.

Totally agree with you. But again, birth control is a private issue. Or should be. But people need to be educated about it. And that starts in the home, with PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

Guttmacher is an arm of planned parenthood I find both repugnant . Both support tax payer funds for abortion .
Kids know about thishit and CHOOSE not to be responsible.
What a waste of time and lives.

If we want to get "free" birthcontrol and be able to get abortions for any reason we see fit, at any time during our pregnancy, then if we want it to be OUR issue ONLY, everyone stay out of it, butt out, their opinion doesn't matter.....then we have NO RIGHT to say they should pay one dime to provide us with either of those things.
Women can make their choice, it's their body, it's their birth control, and men shouldn't decide issues about a woman's body....AT THE SAME TIME....women have NO RIGHT to expect these things "free" from the government but paid for by ALL American's including men and those totally opposed to both issues.
It is wrong for women to think everyone else should pay for their choices that they don't want anyone else to have any say about. If you want your own choices then pay for them yourself!!!!
If everyone pays for your birthcontrol and everyone pays for your abortion then everyone has a right to a say about both!!!!

I have no problem taking care of other humans. I have a problem with taking care of irresponsible humans. Government is needed for just few things in our lives.

And WHERE did I say the government should pay for it? I did NOT. I would prefer that the government BUTT OUT of both. I paid for my own birth control (yes I had insurance and a co-pay). HOWEVER, since there are people out there who think the government should pay for everything, then THEY are the ones who should be subject to scrutiny. That said, those of us who practice PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY want to be left alone, and not have to pay for those idiots who choose NOT to be responsible!
