    Fine, then I argue that food is a human health issue, and basic caloric intake should be covered by health insurance. I also argue that gym memberships be covered since its preventative healthcare.

    While I'm at it, I argue that health insurance should then also cover toe nail clippers, hair cuts, self tanner, vitamins, bandaids, toilet paper, tissues, tampons, q-tips, makeup remover, shoes, clothing, snow blowers, air conditioners, heat, and money. All of these are directly related to health, and obviously should be covered by health insurance.
    completely untrue, but thanks for the input.

    So, in your opinion, why is a man barred from having input on whether or not you can abort the fetus? Or does penetration count as consent?

    Most healthcare insurance policies already pay for birth control pills and every single one of them already pays for every health exam a woman could ever have.

    This is a scam, folks. A fantasy invention of the Democratic Party to convince those on the fence that the Republican Party is targetting women. Gimme' a break.

    I don't really get why this is happening. ED drugs are taken by elderly men to satisfy their wives.

    The only justification I can imagine is women are threatening to cheat. In case young'uns didn't know, men's sex drives tend to plummet as we get older.
    ED drugs treat real medical problems that aren't limited to the "elderly"--for example, many standard meds can cause ED--diuretics, anti-depressants, and blood pressure pills.
    It's not just about older guys who've had prostatic cancer and loss function.

    I'm looking forward to the older men (defined here as not 20-somethings, LOL) on this board putting to rest the idea that their sex drives have plummeted. And maybe their affirmation that being able to get it up is something they desire for themselves and not necessarily at the demand of wives who threaten to cheat.

    Well, on this message board, it may be fun to watch 'em dance, but in the real world? It's lies, deceit and manipulation of the worst kind. Politicians are whores.

    Isn't the entire point of the BC hoopla that BC should be free like the air we breathe? No insurance necessary ... and if you don't agree, then you must be against women's rights and therefore a sexist who's against women.
    ďI think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whatís being proposed here, heíd agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.Ē - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    you don't get that republicans are doing exactly that? proposing unconstutional bills requiring unnecessary procedures simply to pander to their base?

    It came onto the front burner because of the Congressional hearings re separation of church and state. All the witnesses were religious leaders. The Democrats wanted Ms. Fluke to testify about Georgetown...the Republicans said, "No, this is about religion and whether or not Obamacare has the right to mandate that every employer provide birth control pills." The Dems saw this as a way to make political hay, so they convened an "informal hearing" (no Republicans in attendance) to listen to Ms. Fluke. The rest is a tangled web of misinformation and mud slinging.
