Ytown76, I was stating the benefits of the drugs. doctors prescribe drugs that are primarily used for one disease or disorder for a completely different one all the time. Lithium is an anti seizure medication, but is given to Bi polar patients all the time, Clonidine is for blood pressure, but is often taken with others for ADHD. IUD, Plan B, and Ella rent covered, but ask your doctor to be sure. Here is more information about benefits of birth control, as well as the risks.

Lets stop and think about the drugs in general for a second, and the affordable care act overall. The root of the law is to make health care affordable, with doctors being able to do testing and preventative maintenance being foremost, since the problems in the health care system are chronic illnesses, and the prevention on heart disease, stroke, and cancer being the primary bloodsuckers of the financial burdens families face. The birth control drugs arent being dispensed as just a cure all for permiscuious sex, but as a preventative drug against ovarian cancer, just as smoking cessation is now covered by Medicaid for those who wish to quit smoking for the health of themselves as well as their families. The overall goal of the Affordable care act is to lower the total cost of health care in the United States. When are we going to see that the politicians who are being kept in office by the lobbyists who work for the drug companies are feeding into the puritanical upbringings of the Christian right wingers, to vilify a drug that has been overwhelmingly shown to reduce the risk of the very disease that kills young woman, mothers, grandmothers...the very loved ones we would do anything to help make sure they never had cancer in the first place? Its Not about an abortion, when its about your life is it? Is it selfish to want a wife to be there for her children and not taken away too soon by cancer when we have the ability to stop it?

There is something inherently wrong with society today.

Studdabubba, socialized healthcare isnt necessarily bad. Canada, as well as most of the EU have had it for years, and doctors make considerably less there, than their American counterparts. Thee services in some cases are far better too. In France for example, if you are having a stoke or heart attack, real time telemetry is sent from the ambulance to the hospital directly, so when you arrive at the ER, the room is ready for you to get the required surgery, and they do not have to page doctor so and so from his corner office at the back nine of some country club to come and do his job, saving lives. And now we have a hostage situation in Washington. I surely hope our President keeps his stance on terrorism, and refuses to negotiate with the Congressional Boehner regime. Good healthcare for everyone is not Socialism, its just common sense.

Parleyhenry, your correct on so many levels. I find it staggering the level of idiocy i hear from people about the affordable care act. Never mind the fact that both times, in the last 2 elections; both candidates were running on a platform that was primarily about healthcare reform, And both times we elected the president that came up with the plan. So where are the Americans who do not want healthcare reform. Strangely, I've heard the argument to have it repealed from people who live below the poverty level, and from some seniors who are less informed than congress The bill will have virtual no effect on the healthcare that is already there except for the fact it will cut insurance corporations profit margin. And lets not forget that since we have had this bill introduced, republicans have tried to repeal it 42 times, That Is 41 long debacles of an argument that would have been better spent using that same energy fixing real problems in the country. Congress is simply acting like spoiled brat kids whose parents wont buy them candy at the store and throw themselves to the ground crying and going limp, simply because they are not getting what they want.

The fact is that this entire drug problem in this country has been manufactured by both the doctors prescribing the medications, and the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture them. i take several pills for mental condition, and they just make you take another pill or 2 to stop the side effects of the first. Now I'm currently battling a podiatric condition that keeps me in constant pain, but because of the whole outbreak of addiction, i cant even get a small dosage of a painkiller. The bad apples spoil the bushel. Remember when they jailed the doctors for gong overboard? It happened in Canfield.

Good for this guy. Just goes to show that there are some prosecutors that wont waste taxpayers money on charging a man defending himself for life limb or property.

As an Iron Soup volunteer, and o lover of local history and architecture, i support anything that helps to sustain our Community Identity and heritage. The same people who rally around tearing these buildings down are some of the same who wanted to save the facade of The Paramount Theater. The difference is we can save these, create viable housing, with modernization at minimal cost versus razing the structures. As for the problem you speak of, when the apartments were occupied by families, there was a sense of community, and that's whats needed to stop drugs in our neighborhoods. Simply tearing down the low income housing wont eradicate a drug problem. A sense of civic responsibility will.

there should have been more study into the wind currents and velocity in the area..a dual system with both wind and solar with the proper logic control systems could produce more than enough power, however, i feel it was inadequate placement, and not enough study. several areas in the valley can benefit from this technology. Campbell for example has regular winds because of its geographical locale and man made landscape. on the rise of a hill generates more wind like a wind tunnel. Iron Soup Historic preservation company is seeking these same grants, one day i would like to see solar tiles, with Hydro-dynamics in the Mahoning river. we have a resource, but we only pollute it and never use it.
