1. This is so wrong! K&R
Edited on Sat Mar-17-07 11:51 AM by mentalsolstice
Birth control pills particularly, have multiple medical purposes besides contraception. Viagra, as far as I know, has only one purpose. Yes, Viagra is important for those couples who would be unable to enjoy a physical relationship otherwise. And I don't disagree that it should be covered by health insurance. However, to say that contraceptives have no medically necessary purpose is wrong!

And it's blatant discrimination! Viagra, and like products enable a man to have sex. What about the woman who is enabled to have sex by use of reliable contraception...for example, a woman who has been warned to not get pregnant because of a health-related condition such as diabetes?

On edit: I forgot, women who do not desire to become pregnant, or have been warned against pregnancy by their health care provider, shouldn't be having sex at all. Truly "nice" girls have sex for procreative purposes only, and even then they do not enjoy it! :sarcasm:
