The birth control provision is also popular with the public.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the majority of Americans (71%) support laws that require health plans to.

We must agree with those population control groups that demand federal laws permitting all methods of voluntary birth control (pills, diaphragms, condoms, intrauterine devices, free abortions, and voluntary sterilization) and the education that must necessarily accompany it.

While the focus of this conservative agenda is largely domestic, the impact reaches far beyond U.S. borders as abstinence and anti-abortion policies also shape international reproductive health services offered to teenagers that are supported by U.S. dollars (Sengupta 2002).

  • Candidates running for office in the 2020 election acknowledge that the system is flawed, but only offer binary and poorly-conceived solutions. Even if successful, a new president will require congressional approval.

    Watch the trailer for the new documentary “Diagnosing Healthcare” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEfqEJwOF-Q

  • UN affordable Care act! $400 a month for the lowest plan on healthcare.gov PLUS 6 to $8000 duductable you will pay every year if you use the medical care. Does not include dental or vision! That the low deductable plan.

  • there is NOTHING affordable in the care act for me. my premium is 3x from my private, lost doctor, worse coverage, higher deductable….haven’t had insurance since i got kicked of my private plan because i can’t afford it! was $269 with the “affordable care act” it went up, yes UP, to $780.

  • I completely agree with this but they didn’t bring in the idea that there are close to 100 types of birth control and doctors help find whats right for you! Not to mention that if you’re lucky enough in the current state of our country to have insurance then it’s free! either way it should be available over counter

  • I was like “oh no! I dont want to get pregnant, we need over the counter, i dont want to go do a dr for it!” Then i realised i am a leasbian

  • As a birth control user, myself, I understand first-hand the pros and cons of birth control. I do not feel that it is strictly used to prevent pregnancy, but can be used to combat a plethora of issues. Some of those issues can be almost debilitating. I do however know that even though birth control is relatively safe, there are some problems associated with. There was a girl in my grade whose mother passed away due to a blood clot from her birth control. Although it is frustrating to obtain birth control, I feel that there would be a lot of problems if birth control was offered over the counter.
    As the video states, if this was to happen it could potentially lead to less women getting their annual checkups and cancer screenings, leading to greater health problems down the road. The other statistics and facts stated such as 76% of doctors in favor, more people willing to take it if it was offered over the counter, and reducing taxes because 68% of unintended pregnancies are paid for the government through programs is not enough for me. Take my story for example, I was on the same birth control for five years, the first four unproblematic. Then suddenly I was getting massive headaches, random and uncontrollable bleeding, going months without a menstrual cycle, and mood swings so bad I had to limit human interaction. The process of me switching birth controls is still going on and requires an OBGYN, blood work, monitoring, and appointments. Is this a hassle? Of course, but when you’re talking about your health and well-being, is it that big of a hassle. Now, I have been blessed with insurance so the cost aspect is not a determinate for me, but I know it is for a lot of people. However, I still do not see how if birth control was offered over the counter how it could be monitored or how women would know which one to take for their personal needs. As many doctors, will say, there are tons of birth control options so if you don’t like one/agree with one, just switch and try a new one. If this was put into the consumer’s hands, would it fall on what’s best for them, or what is on sale/looks the prettiest/etc.?
    I do like the idea of birth control being more accessible because I think it can do wonders beyond the scope of preventing pregnancies. From personal experience though I know the frustration of having a prescription not work out and the relief when a doctor who knows my history can tell me how to fix it or give me something new, which I think would be lost if birth control was offered over the counter. Also, if it is offered in this form, will there be age restrictions? Again, regulations are in place to help keep this drug and the users safe, that’s why there are so many appointments. To fix the issue, I think that birth control appointments should be treated differently than other appointments, that to refill the prescription (this is usually on insurance, not the doctor) it be expedited as it is a time sensitive issue, and that doctors should work with the patient to get the best drug for them that they can afford making it easier to obtain.

  • Not everyone can take every kind of birth control. If you are over weight, smoke, or have high blood pressure you could be putting yourself at risk if you take the wrong kind or your birth control or it may be ineffective. Health insurance will not cover birth control if it is OT. The premise that it is too difficult to make a DR appt to get BC is very silly when woman should be getting cancer screenings anyway. The conversation with my GYN after my cancer screening “Do you need me to rewrite a prescription for your BC?” The Vox video is an Epic Fail!!!

  • any responsible adult should consult their before taking a pill they’ve never taken before. This video is irresponsible. Typical Vox

  • Wait. Your govt only pays 68/100 births? What about the others? Do they have to pay like 50 bucks to have their child safeöy delivered or what

  • Hormonal birth control has many very serious side effects… not limited to heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, DVT…. I know because I can’t take it due to my family history of blood clots. I personally know several women who have suffered these from birth control. It is best off given under the care of an OB/GYN. There are non hormonal options out there if for some reason you can’t be given a scrip from your doctor or health clinic.
