"Birth Control Saves Taxpayer Money"

"...a $235 million program to expand access to Medicaid family planning
would actually result in a savings of $1.35 billion.

...“Unintended pregnancy is a widespread problem with far-reaching implications:
almost half of all pregnancies in the United States are unintended,
and the women and children involved in these pregnancies
are disproportionately likely to experience a range of negative outcomes,”...

“...each dollar spent on these policies
would produce taxpayer savings of between two and six dollars.”

...In the case of Georgetown University [Fluke], health coverage is not funded by taxpayers,
but by premiums students pay
...that is underwritten by the United HealthCare Insurance Company."

The best thing we could do to strengthen our economy long term would be to have more babies.
