Free birth control as of tomorrow. Is $9 a month too much to pay on your own?

I cannot get behind this. Birth control is not that expensive. Planned Parenthood is even free, I believe, so why should tax dollars pay for it? I pay $9 per month at Walmart, a store readily available almost anywhere. Insurances do not even cover lifesaving medications for free, so why birth control? Condoms are not that expensive either. So gee, thank you, now I can save my whopping $9 a month and put it towards my diabetes medication, something totally unregulated and extremely expensive and lifesaving. I wish going without it was merely as simply as saying "No, honey, not until I can get to the pharmacy/clinic/doctor tomorrow and get my free pills." Ridiculous. If I cannot afford my insulin, I will die but I am so thrilled my pills are free! If women want to be responsible for their own body, they should be responsible for their own body. The "stay out of my womb" t-shirts only matter and make sense if you are not asking the government to get IN your womb by paying for your pills.
