Next, having raised a female and spent several decades married to one, I can tell you the pill helps in a few other conditions... in our daughter it helped with her cramps AND regularity of cycle. If you have known many parents of young girls turning into 'functional' women you'd hear horror story after story about that unexpected period. The hormone therapy helps settle the cycle and gives tremendous peace of mind for all involved. (Thank GOD!)
A condition like allergies or prenatal vitamins, ultra sounds and the like. No real threat to my health if I have simple hay fever- no disease involved with pregnancy, but vitamins and ultras help PREVENT certain unwanted CONDITIONS for occurring.
If I understand the decision the Court ruled that only the methods that work AFTER conception are subject to the ruling. BC pills act BEFORE the egg gets fertilized. One type stops ovulation, the other stops sperm from entering the uterus. Those types should still be allowable as they do not 'abort' a fertilized egg.
Will be interesting to see how it all shakes out....
