Bernie Sanders

In a horrendous decision today, the Trump administration rolled back the Affordable Care Act requirement that all employers offer insurance plans that cover contraception. Let's be absolutely clear. This is nothing less than sexism. It is an assault on womenís health and the latest display of Republicansí total disdain for womenís ability to control their own bodies and lives. President Trump has repeatedly demonstrated how little respect he has for women. This is just more of the same. We cannot go back to the days when women did not have full access to birth control because of their income status. The decision to use contraception is one for women and their doctors to make, not their employers. Despite the administrationís destructive efforts, we will not stop fighting for womenís rights and full reproductive justice. - Bernie Sanders 10/6/2017

3. I intend to send an email to the WH to find out WHEN they are removing coverage for Viagra!

I'm not going to bother trying to get the on to change his mind because that's a loosing battle, but he claims to always treat women equally with men, so if he's pissed off a lot of women with little trick of his, lets see him play fair and stop covering Viagra too.

4. No! Viagra has a legitimate purpose!

If you wake up and find yourself at high altitude, Viagra can save your life!

Is Viagra a Legitimate Cure for Altitude Sickness?: https://www.accessrx.com/blog/erectile-dysfunction/viagra/is-viagra-a-legitimate-cure-for-altitude-sickness/

Half of the test subjects received 40 milligrams of sildenafil citrate three times daily, while the other half got an identical-looking placebo at the same intervals. At the conclusion of the six-day test period, researchers found that sildenafil protected against altitude-induced pulmonary hypertension, and it improved gas exchange.


Sure, there are studies that contradict these findings, but when you wake up at 15,000' and are about to die, you are going to wish you had a handful of Viagra.

6. Even then I don't think it would equal

When you consider that women can start on BC when they are teenagers and continue using it till menopause. That's a long time, and it's daily for the pill. Men take Viagra "when needed" before sex. That doesn't sound like nearly as many pills to take. And it's strange to think that this is daily life for women. It's not just anti-baby; it's for regulating hormones, too.

BTW: I do hope you realized I was being completely sarcastic in my first post. I wanted to point out the ridiculousness of comparing the necessity of BC to the want of Viagra.

7. One thing Trump has stabilized

 

is where I can "set the bar" as far as what I can expect (or not expect) of him. I can just put my head down and spread my cheeks and look like a MAGA patriot.

9. Boner pills are for a med condition. BC are not. However, if to abate acne, it's a med application.

Heavy menstruation and cramps are other medical conditions that can be remedied by using birth control pills.

It's getting to the point where people might have to be creative in how they are requested.
