    As was pointed out to me earlier, this is probably connected to Obama Care and therefore would be incremental cost. I mean, if women's BC would be covered at no cost, I would think that the addition of men counciling and doctors visits would add incremental cost to the healthcare system since that would also be covered at no cost to the patient.

    It's not a testing procedure (or maybe it is), the function actually is a requirement (as was done in the Oklahoma law) for the mother to listen and hear the baby's heart beat before the abortion takes place. I'm not sure what process does that whether it's an ultrasound or some other method... but yes, that would also be an additional cost just like men's viagra counseling.

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.

    I don't think women should have to have an annual exam and prescription to get birth control either.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    Are you similarly motivated to donate and speak against even worse legislation aimed at women? If not...why?
    I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.

    Does the thousands my family has given to Planned Parenthood and the two summers of free labor I gave them count?

    One thing always left out of the Viagra discussion is it's not just for the man it is also kind of important for the woman in his life too. I doubt any man takes Viagra to masturbate but then again who knows. I'm not on the stuff yet but I am getting older, maybe I should keep some on hand, kind of like a fire extinguisher, best to be prepared.

    That's hilarious. The law is designed to show the ridiculousness of anti birth control laws that have been flirted with the last couple of years :lol

    Other: I don't support Viagra and Cialis being covered by insurance while birth control is not - both should be covered. I'm not offended by the bill and I applaud the sponsor for forcing lawmakers to discuss the inequity that currently exists. However, I do not support the bill actually being passed because two wrongs do not make a right.

    It seems to me that both Viagra/Cialis and birth control would be cheap enough that either one would fall withing the deductible and so be paid for by the individual anyway.

    Wouldn't it? Just how expensive are those pills, anyway? Surely, there are generics available by now, maybe not for Cialis, but for the others.

    Lol you said "penal".
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
