A Republican World – ‘State senator says access to birth control not a problem’
JUNEAU, ALASKA — ‘A state senator says he doesn’t think access to contraception is a problem in Alaska.
‘In a floor speech, Republican Sen. Fred Dyson said he researched the issue after a colleague suggested the number of abortions could be reduced by improving access to contraception’.
‘The issue of the state providing expanded family planning services has arisen during discussion on a bill that would further define when the state would pay for abortions under Medicaid’.
- ‘Dyson says condoms cost a dollar apiece and for the price of four or five lattes, a woman could get birth control pills for a month’.
- ‘Dyson says sexual activity is largely “recreation” and the public shouldn’t be required to finance “other people’s recreation.”
