    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It will add millions in providing contraception and subtract tens or hundreds of million in providing pregnancy care.

    And tax payers get to fund the program through rising insurance premiums, right? In a perfect world this might be perfect, but, what about fraud, which is prevalent in many government programs; and think this will stop the conception of "anchor" babies?

    It also doesn't solve the issue of sexual activities of minors, which usually necessitates the assistance of a parental unit. Some parents will utilize the free health care contraception plan and some won’t.

    I don’t buy the religious opposition though, it’s still a choice. A woman doesn’t have to take birth control unless she wants to.

    I do agree with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, "It's feminist pork. It's a wish list, it's a dream list for feminists," she said.

    Another big issue is that not all women who need it will have access to health care, even when Obamacare is implemented. What about the unemployed uninsured?

    Okay, the use of the word "free" is the Fox reporters choice.

    The actually wording would be that insurers should provide coverage of birth control pills at no cost to the consumer. Obviously, that will be factored into premiums, but much like most policies have a free annual physical exam (meaning free to the consumer), this would be covered similarly as preventative care.

    Every state has mandated coverage laws. This is nothing new.

    Re: Contraceptive Recommendation Creates New Controversy for Health Care Law

    The whole issue here is "abortion, abortion, abortion". Nevermind that the intension behind the Institute's recommendation is to provide birth control to women who want it but can't afford it. If it were just a matter of distributing condoms, spermasidal gels (too messy), diaphrams (who uses those anymore?) or the pill, most people wouldn't have a problem with this. But because of the prospect of some female being issued the morning after pill - instant abortion - this is what has folks so up in arms about. Keep in mind that the woman may not even know if she's pregnant at all; she's merely taking the MAP as a precaution against unwanted pregnancy.

    To me, it's not a moral question, but a matter of personal responsibility. Which would you rather have: Women going around aborting fetises whether at a legitimate clinic or at some illegal back alley office space by some pretend "wanna-be OB/GYN"? - Or - women being responsible using birth control responsibily?

    You choose!

    You can't defund the single, most commonly used resource many women use to obtain their contraceptives then go around claiming, "the government's paying for abortions! the government's paying for abortions," when a leading institution suggests that private insurance companies should provide same to women for free. It's a recommendation, not an amendment to the law nor an executive order.

    Folks who have their boxers and panties in a wod over this just need to chill. Besides, how many insurance companies would offer the MAP for free anyway or birth control pills for that matter? I'd like to read the report myself to see exactly what types of birth control methods the Institute is recommending but my guess would be they are the more tradition methods, i.e., condoms, diaphrams, gels. Ladies, correct me on this but don't you have to see your personal physician to have the pill prescribed?

    I wouldn't do this to a quote of a poster but why is it so difficult for news sources to make their articles accurate?
    Maybe because it is accurate? They are saying that the insurance companies have to provide this coverage for free to the customers. If the customer doesn't have to pay directly for something then it is considered free. Sure they may pay for it via taxes...but they get the coverage for it from the insurance companies at no extra charge by the insurance companies..nothing is said of having to pay for it via something other than insurance companies (taxes).

    Also they probably used it because that is the word that medical advisory panel used. So its not really the news companies that are not being accurate...its the people that they are reporting on that is not saying it accurately.

    There is no such thing.

    If the customer doesn't have to pay directly for something then it is considered free.

    Rates are going to go up also. But as you note, the ones who use the benefits are paying for it one way or another. You note that it is not free but then state it's accurate.

    Also they probably used it because that is the word that medical advisory panel used. So its not really the news companies that are not being accurate...its the people that they are reporting on that is not saying it accurately.
    I imagine a good portion of that is true. My complaint is less concerned over who does it but the fact it's done.

    If providing contraception without cost to policyholders lowers the net total payout of insurance companies due to the decrease in costs associated with unwanted pregnancies (and other issues that would be prevented through the use of contraception), then premiums would go down (well, they should, but we know that insurance companies won't lower premiums, they'll just pocket the extra profit).

    I think contraception should be AFFORDABLE - but whatever means you use, it costs money to produce said product. Someone MUST pay for it regardless. . . I'd like to think that people are capable of at least covering a portion of their BC.
