    This is a shame, at least however if their male employees need a little help from viagra or cialis they're covered. And when they decide the time is right for that vasectomy they got em' covered there too.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    2 x $7.25 = $14.50. It would still probably cost an entire months wages to pay for an IUD.


    So if it's not a war on women then why is only women's health care singled out?

    You answer mine first. But you won't I gather.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - 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.

    Or a Scientologist CEO, who disapproves of psychiatric medication and treatment.

    Whether they are both prescriptions or not is irrelevant. The ruling and case was not based on "prescriptions" but contraceptives. Prescriptions ≠ contraceptive.

    Contraceptives were included in coverage because the Administration considered them to be preventative care (as if pregnancy is a disease). That's where the legal authority to make contraceptives free came from since according to the ACA preventative care is supposed to be free. Viagra can in no way be considered preventative.

    The little parade of horribles is amusing, but the US has been balancing religious concerns with other legal concerns for a very long time. I foresee no difficulty in that regard.
