  4. Planned Parenthood, Women's Health Issues, Nurses could rule the US

  8. Are oral contraceptives healthcare?
    Lets face it if men became pregnant contraceptives would be basic health care and no one would question it. For those saying BCP costs $10 month, where are you getting them because in this area...

  14. You Arent Supposed To Hold A Newborn Baby If On Menstrual Cycle?
