Planned Parenthood upset about the rise in Birth Control Costs

So supposedly birth control went up 900% from what it was last year. I say good. Because maybe it will make people think about their choices. As we all know its about choice. lol. Anyway, just thought that was interesting. Found an add on campus about how we should be more upset about birth control than gas prices rising. It's kinda funny, I think that planned parenthood is an organization that only deals with symptoms of a bigger problem. Probably why the same people that support them also get annoyed with gas prices rising. They don't see the bigger picture. Granted I spent about 3 extra hours on public transportation in the last 24 hours, but I see there is more than just complaining about gas prices to solve a problem. We need to get rid of our gas dependency in general. As with birth control, we need to get rid of the idea that we need it to be intelligent about our choices. It's actually the most unintelligible thing to do about having sex.


  1. And speaking of choices there is a great spoof of the Mac vs. PC ads that pits NFP against contraception made by some seminarians in Michigan. Video is here.

  2. Yeah those videos are great. I found them a while back from a facebook link. I will probably post on them sometime in the future. I didn't know they were done by seminarians though, that makes it even better.
