54. That makes no sense.
Let me start by saying that I agree that birth control should be covered by insurance.

With that out of the way, your comparison of Viagra to birth control is apples to oranges. Viagra is a medication to treat a medical condition. Birth control is a medication to prevent pregnancy. Most all medication that treats medical conditions are covered by insurance, while "lifestyle" drugs aren't.

I'll be happy to listen to bitching about birth control pills not being covered by insurance as soon as condoms are covered too.

AND...lol

Getting back to the original topic of the post, being a male does NOT preclude me from having an opinion on abortion. That's just idiotic.
