Free Money

My apologies to you all for utilizing the words "free money"... I realize this was a poor choice of words. My intent was to indicate that this money did not originate solely from New Hanover County, from a sales tax, property tax, etc. The fact is, if NHC hadn't accepted the money, it would have gone to another county in NC for family planning services.
I also apologize if my comment led you to believe that I was one who was in receipt of any type of government assistance. I do not, never have, and would never feel like I was deserving of some type of "entitlement." I do realize though that there are some instances when people need to use the health department for their family planning needs. The IUD is a viable option for those who may have adverse side effects from hormonal birth control and/or may be allergic to latex condoms. These may be folks who are married, single, promiscuous, or any combination thereof. Regardless, this provides another option for our citizens. Whether or not you morally agree with the program, the money will prevent a number of unintentional pregnancies. That is the bottom line. Again, my apologies for upsetting so many with my word choice of "free money."
