Social responsibility and poop.

Someone posted a question yesterday about whether or not birth control should be free and I noticed that a lot of people answered no way due to the fact that it'd be their tax money paying for it.

For people in countries where there's no socialized health care:
Does it really make fiscal sense to not take the preventative route (providing free birth control) rather than paying for the pre-natal, natal, and other medical expenses related to a poor/uninsured person's pregnancy and birth?

Do you feel that society as a whole should contribute to the betterment of society as a whole, either financially or in other ways?

Do you feel that less suffering in the world would make it a better place for you, as well as everyone else? Why or why not?

I heard a report on NPR the other day that 4,000 people a year are given prescriptions (at one major city hospital) for food due to malnutrition. Does it strike you as absurd that people living in the richest country in the world are suffering from malnutrition?

What's the thing that your tax dollars fund that most offends you?

And, for something completely different....

If you have a dog, does s/he look embarrassed when s/he poops? Do you avert your gaze?
