    This program is long overdue. While celibacy is best, most people aren't going to go that route. Providing free contraception to uninsured people is far better than the alternative - uninsured people having tons of babies.

    Substituting "free stuff" for "personal responsibility" is a step in the wrong direction. Celibacy is free, and 100% effective when used. But, this is seen as "judgmental" or "religion" or "morality" by some and therefore abhorred by the liberals.

    If someone is able to decide to engage in sex, the should understand the possible consequences of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, and be 100% responsible for the results of their decision.

    It does not cost anything to tell people of the consequences of sexual activity and if they decide to ignore the warnings that is their problem, not anyone else's. If they want to have sex, then let them provide their own contraceptives, by giving up some other purchases.

    Glad to hear about this. Any program that reduces the rate of abortions and helps women with their reproductive choices is good news.
