With Senator Boxer and others once again bringing up the argument comparing Viagra to abortion and that if health care pays for one it must pay for the other for equality; you have to wonder when they will ever raise a serious argument.
This argument makes a fundamental error in it’s comparison. An error that is all to prevalent. True health care is aimed at health. Now that is a rather simple statement, but it seems to be forgotten. Medicines like Viagra are suppose to repair a problem. To restore the body to health. Direct abortion does not make a women healthier. It does nothing for the health of the child other than to eliminate it. So this is truly an apple and oranges comparison.
Unfortunately there is a lot of so called heath care that is nothing of the kind. Sterilization and contraception are obstructions and actually prevent the human body to work as intended. They do not make the reproductive system healthier since it causes it to not function correctly. Hormonal contraception has other effects that not only fool the body into to thinking it’s pregnant 24/7 but has other side effects that cause harm not health.
