Corky-even if they came with instructions, they wouldn't know how to use them.

I wish this country had done that 50+ years ago. Small rural town, one pharmacy & everyone knows you!

I would think that anti-abortionists would adopt a similar policy i.e. make condoms free to anyone that wants one. In fact, they should step it up a notch and make ALL contraceptives free. But, they won't do that because their fight is not about preventing abortion. If it was, the best way of preventing abortions is to prevent pregnancies. These methods of birth control have been around for decades, so why hasn't the right been aggressive in promoting these methods?

What is the fight about? It's about control over women. They want more women, specifically more White women, to have babies; lots and lots of babies to counter balance the changing demographics in the country. They constantly bring up the fact that Black people should be concerned by the high number of Black women having abortions but that is just a dodge to hide their true motives.

Free condoms have been available in the USA for decades. Birth control has been free under ACA for 12 years.

This sort of paranoid, delusional drivel is proof the left has no understanding whatsoever about what motivates the right. That kind of rhetoric only keeps your wheels spinning, throwing up mud. You will never get anywhere until you have real conversations with those who have opposing viewpoints..

Please. Elucidate. What is the motivation of the "right"?

Hate is what motivates the Right. To them the only people who are people are straight white men with a million dollars in the bank.

No point having that conversation with you. Of all the DR posters, you are the possibly the least inclined to consider the viewpoints of others. You are easily triggered and binary in thought, instantly classify anyone who disagrees with you as the enemy and prejudicially assign to that person a slew of stereotypical labels and viewpoints that may or may not hold. One of your go to phrases is "I already know why you think" or "I already know what you are" , or something like that, maybe you can provide the correct quote.

Good luck in finding a single instance of either of those phrases from me. As far as being one of the least inclined to consider the viewpoints of others, I'm very open as long as it is fact based and logical. I don't accept --------.

You still upset because I called you out on your bigotry regarding Griner?

That's on you.

Ok. So why don't anti-abortion zealots advocate for the free availability of all contraceptives? They won't. In fact, they keep moving the goal posts! 15 weeks was to long, then 6 weeks. Now, for many (most?) of them, life begins at conception thereby eliminating all birth control methods except those that prevent fertilization. Well, we know the effectiveness of those methods.

Religious zealots are just tools for conservatives that want to slow down/reverse the demographic trends taking place in the country.

That's up to your employer.

Your side fought and won to take away free birth control pills.

Your side calls them ---- pills.

Pretty good question.

The answer is, it's always been about controlling women.

The first restrictions on abortion in this country started appearing when the women's suffrage movement started to gain traction.

Anti-abortion politics was and still is the conservative response to women's liberation.

My bigotry on Griner? Now that's a hoot. Yav, your imagination is running away from you again.

I don't have the time or inclination to do a deep search of your post history to identify the particular syntax, but that is your total M.O.

Just try to get through a day without telling someone else what they REALLY think, or what they really feel and see how that goes. Try listening for a change.

Just to be clear since the troll is back with a pile of straw he wiped his nasty ass with ... .

I am not a Republican. The Republican viewpoint is not "my side"

I don't have a "side" on abortion. I have a set of viewpoints which have been repeatedly misrepresented by certain trolls here in an effort to draw me into a fight.

I am not going into depth here about abortion here, because there is no point. Nobody here wants to have an intelligent conversation about it or truly understand opposing positions. You just want to use it as a wedge issue, a platform to further your hatred of conservatives. I get it. Carry on.

"I don't have a "side" on abortion."

LOL dude.

What's that quote? To be neutral in a time of injustice is to side with the oppressor. Something like that.

If you don't think abortion is a basic human right and that Republicans have taken women's rights away, then you're not on my side. You're on their side.

Didn't you lay the blame at the feet of Congressional Democrats for not codifying Roe into law? And not, say, Republican Justices who destroyed it. And Republican Presidents who appointed the destroyers.

What you're saying sounds about as believable as me saying I don't have a side on the Second Amendment.

France to Make [taxpayers pay for] Condoms for Young [diseased migrant] Adults

Where as in America, taxpayers pay to subsidize the extremely wealthy.

Darn those French for spending taxes to curb unwanted pregnancies and the spread of STDs.

By the way, thanks for exposing yourself as a xenophobe and a racist.

You're garbage.

Looks like they have more in common with conservative Americans than they knew.

Just sharing information,

With a heavy xenophobic lean to it.

You're a troll, and not a good one.

Xenophobia may be a hit with the folks you hang out with in your bubble.

But not so much here on the DR.

Moron.

Flood a thread about free contraceptives in France, with slander about African migrants in France.

You're not clever.

You're an idiot.

"Ok. So why don't anti-abortion zealots advocate for the free availability of all contraceptives?"

I'm not against abortion, but I do side on it wouldn't be the choice for me.

but I'll take a swing at it...

Because it's about personal responsibility, if you're going to have sex then you should be mature enough to figure out how to get a condom. Period. Done.

Why jump to the convoluted "CoNtRoL WoMeN!!!!!"?

Because it sounds better and a lot of folks on the left love to advocate for irresponsible behavior being the responsibility of everyone else to fix.

There's none, right?

Or do you not advocate for their personal responsibility, like you do for women?

Sure seems like you're saying women need to control themselves, because boys will be boys!

Perfect example of hoe it's really about controlling women.

That's why we promote contraceptives and sex education.

That's why we push for better, stronger public schools and champion education.

That's why we advocate for better gun control and safety training.

Lfthndturds, you're literally the dumbest poster on the DR.

Congratulations. You've made Sniper jealous.
