Does Augusta State University

Does Augusta State University offer free birth control?
Do Augusta/Richmond government health clinics offer free birth control?
Does Augusta/Richmond Planned Parenthood offer free birth control?
If so for any of the above; what requirements must be met to qualify?

augusta state does not offer

augusta state does not offer free birth control. the health clinics only offer free birth control if you qualify as low income. and i know from experience that you are required to make very little in this case. the same is true for planned parenthood. so could someone tell me again how this is cartoon is perfect, good, or even remotely correct? free isn't an option for nearly half the women who need birth control for contraception or illness. we're missing the big picture here. and being completely condescending towards women at the same time.

Hey venus, ever heard of

Hey venus, ever heard of making demands on the male side of the equation? Key words, if you make very little income. If you make more, pay for your own. We did it for years. Our insurance didn't cover birth control. Danged if we didn't find a way to not have the two children we wanted to have but didn't have them because WE COULD NOT AFFORD THEM AND THE GOVERNMENT WOULD NOT PAY FOR US TO HAVE THEM!

Ms Fluke, etc, get absolutely

Ms Fluke, etc, get absolutely no sympathy from me. She is a joke, a farce and a liberal pawn and she is too stupid to realize it. She has been used. How pathetic. I feel for her. She probably could have made something out of herself and she has totally blown it now like Monica Lewinski. From here on out, how does any thinking person take them seriously. Yep, she may have a book deal. Guess what that got us... a crappy president whose first book was probably ghost written by Ayers. America is going to H in a hand basket quicker than we can breathe.

Augusta State, like all state

Augusta State, like all state universities, require mandatory enrollment in health insurance. The company most students use if they are not covered by their parents' insurance is Pearce and Pearce. The benefit package of Pearce and Pearce covers "Prescribed Contraceptives".
Most student health services provide free condoms, as does the "free clinic" and Planned Parenthood. Apparently venusflytrap, like Fluke, isn't aware that condoms are contraceptives.

Oh, my! What happened to that big glass bowl of condoms sitting on the table in the waiting room of the Health Clinic? Of course, that was a long, long, long time ago.

Georgetown Law? Low income?

Georgetown Law? Low income? Really?!? The 1% Obama worshippers trying to get us to pay for their every move. The only things missing from this cartoon are the baby skulls being tossed outside the PP clinics in the 3rd frame. The Liberal Holocaust continues - 54 million and counting.

That is my main point LL.

That is my main point LL. Fluke's "women can't afford birth control" stance is a myth.
