Stuff costs more then it used to!!I get their concern, but this is still stupid. How am I supposed to pay for my birth control and my cell phone!? What about that gym membership?!
Seriously, it's called priorities. Also, stop talking like the only options are "unprotected" and "protected" if you can't afford your contraception because you prioritized your phone and spending $50 a week at the bars, then you've prioritized how important sex is to you in the first place. If you can't afford your birth control then you can't afford a kid, so then just don't have sex. Sure you could argue society paying for your birth control is cheaper than paying for your kid, but you could also just not be irresponsible.
Now this isn't to say I'm against the idea of subsidizing contraceptives. I'm certainly against the concept of "abstinence only" sex education programs. I'm just really sick of the entitled, "Who will save me from myself?!," attitude that seems to be so prevalent now-a-days.

Where do we draw the subsidy line?
Pretty soon we will subsodize just about everything, because people will whine that they don't live up to the national standard ... and by God, it's not their fault!
"University of New Mexico students are worried the federal deficit is going to cause a boom in unwanted pregnancies. "
That's a pretty f***ing big stretch right there, KRQE Albuquerque.
As a woman, I think it's both unfortunate and frustrating that birth control prices keep skyrocketing, and that Universities who used to be able to offer substantital discounts can't anymore. But take some responsiblity and prioritize. And if you cannot do that, maybe you aren't mature enough to be having sex in the first place.
