Should the Birth Control Pill Be Free?
Some students are all for free birth control pills. After all, student health centers have been handing out free condoms for years. George Washington University freshman Jessi Payton points out that, just because her fellow classmates aren't taking the pill, "that doesn't mean they aren't having sex." Joy Welborn, one of Payton's classmates, disagrees, telling Newsweek that "If you are going to have sex, you need to be adult enough to fund contraception yourself."
What do you think? Do you think the birth control pill should be free for college students?
