Viagra, Medicaid and Sex Offenders

I’m glad somebody makes this make more sense. I think this manufactured scandal is absolutely insane.

Medicaid covers Viagra for anyone for whom it is medically indicated. You don’t have to undergo a criminal record check to get any other kind of medical treatment. Pickpockets can be treated for carpal tunnel, peeping toms for ADD, and embezzelers for dyslexia–and that’s exactly how it should be. It’s unnerving to see moral busybodies demanding a closer mesh between health care and the law. Medicaid is not an arm of the parole system. Prescriptions shouldn’t be rationed in the name of social engineering. It sounds as if Health and Human Services might even revoke Viagra coverage for sex offenders who have already served their time. This is unconscionable. It’s not up to HHS to heap extrajudicial punishments on people who’ve already paid their debt to society.

    This argument makes total sense and I agree with it. However it’s frustrating to know that if a woman is raped by one of these sex offenders on Viagra in many states she can’t get emergency contraception to prevent her from getting pregnant.

    So my argument is that if we’re going to make it possible for men to receive Medicaid so they can get laid, shouldn’t we make it possible for women to not have to suffer all the consequences?
