When you qualified healthcare as limited, then one cannot assume that birth control is covered by health care. Especially because historically and more recently, birth control was heavily regulated or is made difficult to obtain

Birth control would probably fall under universal healthcare (which is on the list).

I reviewed your posting history and find myself still waiting on the last question I asked you. So I don't think there's any point in honestly engaging you.

You were a little too honest. If you just ignored or missed my question, I'd have asked it again. You specifically told me you had no intention of engaging me or anyone in conversation about your own topic.

That's the problem, not your lack of answer.

I assume by "nada" you mean the third-person present singular conjugation of nadar, which means "to swim", from which I infer you mean swimming lessons.

Which I do think the government should provide. It's good for people to know how to swim, if even just for safety reasons.

Your assumption is clearly correct, and all right-thinking people would agree that government should in fact provide all citizens with nada, i.e., swimming lessons. :yup:

I assumed by "nada" he was using the nominative declension of the Croatian or Bosnian feminine noun nada [cf. Serb. нада] from the Proto-Slavic *nadědja [cf. Pol. nadzeija; Russ. надeжда, etc.), which is of course orthographically similar to but etymologically distinct from the Old East Slavic predicative nado, meaning "need" or "necessity" [e.g. Russ. надо]; Old Russ. надобѣ.].

Either of those would also be ok.
