there is currently a battle over planned parent hood funding, as well as tax-payer subsidized contraceptives and abortions on demand.
What's wrong with "if you want it, then you go get it" Not like anyone is trying to tell another what to do or what not to do.....pretty simple
Yes... if you never use unemployment, should you pay for the "freeloaders"?
Same thought process with medicare, although I admit it is a weaker example as most people will be on medicare assuming they make it to the appropriate age.
My point is that there probably aren't ANY government-funded programs that at least one person couldn't go say "I'll never use that service, so I'm not paying that percentage of my taxes!".
So... where does it end?
I have no idea what you are talking about
The thesis of your main point is basically that if you don't use it, you don't want to have to pay for it. My point is that if you are complaining about paying for some programs that you don't/won't use, then you have to complain about EVERY program, including ones like unemployment and Medicare.
we're talking about the picture right? The point of the picture is the hypocrisy of those who say "keep your government out of my uterus" but then demand government intervention into their birth control and contraceptive use and abortions.
No, I'm talking about your main point:

It's about how tax dollars are spent, it has nothing to do with your privacy.
And back to my point... I may never use unemployment, so why should I pay?
