    You're obviously correct. You would only have to compare the cost of the BC for 100 or-so million women to the increased number of births that result due to not providing free BC (not all births). They don't want to see that though. They feel it's just not fair that women should have to pay their own BC, so that's all they see.

    If birth control is a health issue then health insurance should cover it, but its not. Health insurance should not be used to compensate for a persons lack of judgements when having sex.

    Actually, someone lacking judgement concerning sex would be to have sex without birth control, assuming you don't want to make babies. There are many reasons to have birth control, they include both medical reasons and reasons dealing with responsibility. There are also soceital reasons to be concerned about birth control. It is just one of the things both a responsible person and a resaonable people (society) pay attention to.

    Birth control pills ARE used as hormone therapy, that is exactly why they should be covered; they are not used just to prevent pregnancy. In fact this is exactly what Sandra Fluke spoke about in her testimony.

    No kidding. And when they are used for hormone therapy, they are currently covered by the insurance plans of religious organizations. When they are used as contraception, they are not covered by some insurance policies. Try to keep up. Please.

    Absolutely correct. Georgetown does (and should be required to) cover BC pills prescribed by a doctor as hormone therapy. But some will never be able to get past the source.

    Then let them get a copy of the insurance policy.
