Women should not have to pay $300 for RU-486

Women have been waiting decades for the abortion pill to be available in Canada. Now that it’s approved it appears women will have to pay $300 for it, though surgical abortions are covered under provincial health plans. The drug should be covered, too.

Can no one rid me of this troublesome reproduction?

    if you are old enough to have sex, you’re old enough to face all consequences. Financial too.

      That could be as young as 12.

        When the state teaches family is anything you want it to be, what on earth were they expecting?

        • FactsWillOut

          Biologically, many folk are able to reproduce as young as 12.
          The biological definition of “adult” is the ability to reproduce.
          God made those rules, not men.

            very true, but it takes a family and a community that respects the family to foster a healthy future for all. Any society that stops its moral teaching fails first the most vulnerable, then the sick and finally no one can escape.

            Agreed.
            The destruction of the nuclear family at the hands of the left is a harbinger of doom for western civilization.

            this is how it starts. always.

        Let the parents of the 12 year old take care of it. After all, they failed to teach her to avoid getting pregnant. It’s their responsibility, Maybe if the parents have to pay it, they’ll talk to their daughters.
        The government is already cutting necessary drugs from the program, why should we have to pay for this drug for somebody’s avoidable error?

        if you want to help your young daughter to keep from getting pregnant, tell her that you will be a grandparent but, that you’ve already raised your kids,so any kids she has will be her responsibility. The occasional babysitting stint of a few hours will be all she can expect from you, The same as you would do for your other kids who got married first. “Don’t expect to rely on us to take care of you or your child.”

        it worked for my family. No one got pregnant before marriage.

        • FactsWillOut

          Excellent.
          There was once a time when 18 year old men and 16 year old women were able to properly raise a family. Those days are gone now, however, what with all the molly-coddling of the kids nowadays.

        • Curmudgeon

          Absolutely! It’s totally the girl’s responsibility. There should never be any blowback on the guy who knocked her up.

          • FactsWillOut

            Women wanted the power to deal with their own bodies. Now they’ve got it, all they can do is whine about it.

          • dukestreet

            I was talking about the girl & her parents because they were the subject,but, there is no way what I said does not apply to the boy as well. Just as the daughter should expect to deal with the consequences of her actions, so should the boy be required to do likewise by his parents. Nor should he expect his mother(or father) be expected to take care of her/his grandchild any more than any of her/his other grandchildren .

  • FactsWillOut

    RU486 has been around long enough for generic knock-offs to be around, hasn’t it?

    At any rate, when the fraud that is state pension plans explodes, folk will start having kids to take care of them in their old age, you know, the way things are supposed to be.

    Women need to stop playing the victim. Grow up an grow a pair…most abortions are not from “forced” impregnation, just selfish timing. I love most ideas written in this blog, but if you have no respect for the basics like human life, all else pales.

    • Curmudgeon

      Stated like a real man! Why should women have any say in their lives.

      • FactsWillOut

        The definitely shouldn’t have any say in our lives. Women’s suffrage was a big mistake.

        • nosharia4us

          lol you know there are some truths in all blanket statements… but giving the opportunity for all women to vote was a logical evolution. Too bad some countries still can’t see the light.

          • FactsWillOut

            Women’s suffrage gave us the Turd.
            Most women are bleating bags of hormones and emotions.

            Then there is the fact that men are stronger, smarter and faster than women. Women should have stuck to their roles as nurses, mothers and housewives.
            While I don’t care if women want to engage in any form of economic activity, they should not have access to any political power whatsoever, except through pressuring their husbands.

        A real man stands behind his offspring, not kills them.
        A real woman is called a mother.
        You want to play a victim, try being a real mom!

        Woman should have a say in their lives, however the myth that Canada has abortion laws must end. There is no abortion law, so it’s a free-for-all which is amoral and cannot continue. There should be a time limit like there used to be. And, unless abortion is considered a medical necessity, surgical abortions should not be “free” . .

        • FactsWillOut

          Agreed.
          I don’t want to ban them, however I do consider it a disgusting practice, and the fact that it is celebrated as a “victory for women” is insane.

  • johnbrooks3

    Why not, let’s kill another 30 million babies, after all they are not human

      Don’t forget gassing old people and the handicapped too! And we’ll make up the difference with Third World immigration!

  • Exile1981

    Lets be honest a condom or the pill is much cheaper, the people complaining about costs are just wanting a “at home” way to have an abortion so they don’t have to go to a clinic and so they can have casual sex at will with no need for birth control or consequences.

    • FactsWillOut

      Yep.
      Where there is a market, there will be someone to supply it.

  • SMC_BC

    Like surgical abortions it is elective neither of them should not be covered.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Obamacare covers tubal ligation but not vasectomies. The women who want RU-486 free just need to make it more of a victimization issue.

  • BillyHW

    Has there ever been a generation of women so awful as ours?

    • FactsWillOut

      The Temperance Movement comes to mind.

      • BillyHW

        Those were dark times indeed.

        • FactsWillOut

          Times have gotten much darker since then, it seems.

    Raise it to $3,000.
