"........As a 60-something, relatively healthy person, I don't want lactation and maternity services, abortion services, speech therapy, mammograms, fertility treatments or Viagra. I don't want it.


This is the most ridiculous argument, if you don't want it, then you will not have to fork over money for the Co-pays. That's why health care insurance is designed with Co-pays. People who utilize the services pay out of their pocket, a percentage, concomitantly with the insurance program they have secured. If you Don't utilize a service you Don't Pay For It.

Get it?
As was pointed out, the same is not true with other government programs, like public schools, if you don't have children you have to pay property taxes like the neighbor who might have 8 children in public school.
