  •  I get that it's snark (17+ / 0-)

    But there is no need for tampons with modern birth control.

    Women can completely stop their cycles if they want to, for extended periods of time. In fact, many do just because it's much easier to deal with their bodies if they do that. They can't get pregnant, they don't have to deal with cramps, they don't get anemic, they don't have the mess, the hormones are far more level so they don't have to deal with any mood swings, etc.

    For many it's a liberation!

        •  Does the employer pay for birth control pills? (1+ / 0-)

          Do military "employees" get the benefit of Obamacare where women get free birth control pills?  I imagine the rethugs will find that a problem.  The government doesn't' pay for abortions and it shouldn't pay for BCP or family planning.  The big question is, does the government pay for births?  Next they will put up a stink about that.  No woman should receive anything that a man can't receive.  Men don't get free birth control pills so neither should women.  But I thought rethugs were against the Equal Rights Amendment.  Of course this is all /snark.  Sad that we have to think this way.  The rethugs are a bunch of /snarks in my opinion.
