Belated “Happy Birth Control Day” wishes!
Now, ladies, you can “thank” Obamacare for your ability to get “free” BC before you decide to “hook-up” with that guy on campus you just met like 15 seconds ago. Woohoo!

The above, BTW, isn’t an official government account but instead run by people who want to make sure women in particular are “thankful” for the passage of Obamacare because of its mandate that insurers offer “free” birth control coverage. Emily Miller the Washington Times reports:
A second ad showing a young woman holding a pack of birth control pills gives the appearance she is possible drunk and at a party. “Ali” is wearing a black, one shoulder, silky dress, bare arms and legs and high heels. She is leaning against a cutout of actor Ryan Gossling — a takeoff of the popular meme “Hey Girl.”
The copy reads from the male actor’s point of view: “You’re excited about easy access to birth control and I’m excited about getting to know you.”
The latest ads are part of a marketing campaign from Colorado Consumer Health Initiative and ProgressNow Colorado Education that are a takeoff of the “Got Milk?” ads that instead say “Got Obamacare?” These groups first went after young men with ads showing them doing keg stands and binge drinking.
Liberal groups paying for marketing campaigns to target young people to buy health insurance is to be expected. The whole Obamacare scheme will only work if young, healthy people get into the system so that the government can hand out subsidies to the uninsured.
But treating young women like cheap sluts who don’t care about their health or well being other than getting cheap birth control pills to have sex with strange men is offensive. These ads should be taken down.
You can see the other “Thanks Obamacare” ads here. Make sure not to miss the one about “Brosurance” (scroll). America is raising a generation of narcissistic dum dums, I’m afraid to say.
