Okay, I'm gonna ignore the religious angle on this because frankly, it's not important here. Two things are:Most healthcare plans will be required to cover birth control without charging co-pays or deductibles starting Aug. 1, the Obama administration announced Friday.
The final regulation retains the approach federal health officials proposed last summer, despite the deluge of complaints from religious groups and congressional Republicans that has poured in since then. Churches, synagogues and other houses of worship are exempt from the requirement, but religious-affiliated hospitals and universities only get a one-year delay and must comply by Aug. 1, 2013.

1. The "cost" of BC is going to skyrocket. You, the end purchaser won't see this, because it's "free". But your insurance company will. Producers of the BC know that they can raise the prices and it MUST BE PAID FOR, cost controls jsut **** the bed. GJ Obama and Co.
2. Why stop at BC, hell why not dictate all treatments are co-pay free, why just BC? That's so sexist and unfair.
