"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Hillary and Harry - Fed Should Pay for Sex

Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Harry Reid (D-NV) claim half of the 6 million pregnancies each year in this country are unintended, and nearly half of these unplanned pregnancies end in abortion. It doesn't have to be this way.
xxx Clinton and Reid suggest most of these unintended pregnancies -- and the resulting abortions -- can be prevented if we eliminate the barriers that prevent women from having access to affordable and effective contraception.

Do Clinton and Reid contend "unintended" pregnancies are because people don't understand where babies come from? Do Clinton and Reid know?

Reid and Clinton write at TimesUnion.com:

In the Senate, we have long championed the Prevention First Act. This legislation would help to reduce the rates of unintended pregnancy in our nation, decrease abortions and improve access to women's health care. Our proposal includes common- ground, common-sense policies. It makes family-planning services more accessible to low-income women. It improves awareness and understanding of emergency contraception, a poorly understood yet highly effective form of contraception. It ensures that government-funded sex education programs provide medically accurate information about contraception. It also ends insurance discrimination against women. Right now, many policies cover Viagra, but not prescription contraceptives. That is wrong, and our legislation will change it. We agree that it makes the most sense to prevent unintended pregnancies in the first place -- and we believe we should also fund programs that support women who choose to carry their pregnancies to term and raise healthy children. Our approach gives Americans on both sides of the abortion debate the opportunity to join together -- as we have done -- in the common goals of preventing unintended pregnancies, reducing abortions and supporting women and children's health and well-being. We hope that the White House and our colleagues in Congress agree and will work with us to put prevention first.

Keywords here are Government Funding! We call it pay for play. Why should government pay for the indiscriminate fornication? These two Senators also support funding education and medical care for illegal immigrants. They support tax increases on small business people who they believe are all "rich."
xxx
Of course the Senator's didn't mention a key ingredient to their proposal. TAX INCREASES to fund the project. While they complain about the deficit and lie about the economy, Clinton and Reid carry the liberal torch for bigger government and pay for sexual indiscretion. The one thing I do agree with is the government shouldn't be paying for erections either!

One thing you're forgetting: Unwanted pregnancies are going to cost a whole lot more down the line.

Are the kids having teen pregnancies irresponsible (both the girl and the guy)? Sure.

But the Federal Government isn't Daddy, ready to punish them and teach them a lesson.

The federal government's role is to get bang for its buck - and that's what this does. They'll save a lot of money in the long run by dropping the teen pregnancy rate.

What's your solution to some kids being irresponsible - having the irresponsible ones produce more kids than everyone else? Gee, that should turn out lovely.

The above quote was yours not mine. No pun intended I hope.

As a true conservative my solution is for parents to teach their kids, it's not governments responsibility.

Public schools and local communities have a responsibility to teach just that. Where I currently reside there are community service billboards encouraging kids to be good citizens, responsible for their actions.

Karl Marx preferred social guidance by the government for the classes.

Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan put the responsibility for that outside the realm of government funding.

Why should you or I pay for mistakes others make in the name of casual sex?

These ideas from Reid and Clinton are a joke, especially coming from them. Must be an election year and more Clinton style triangulation.

When Hillary says "it takes a community" she really means it takes big government with her in charge. GOD help us all if she is put in charge of anything.
