    Because it's doesn't flow with the purpose of insurance.
    Frankly, the supposed benefit of reducing abortions and unwanted pregnancies isn't likely to happen because poor females usually can't afford insurance in the first place.
    Plus they already have the option of getting free bc from state health departments.

    This legislation was designed to pander to women.

    Where do you come up with this stuff? No one said that at all. Is that your argument?

    It's odd, Liberals look at those children and say they didn't ask to be born or live like that, that mother should be on birth control....and Conservatives look at them and see more prisoners to fill the private prison industry's wallets at taxpayer expense.

    Hey everyone at DP, did you know that birth control helps regulate monthly periods and reduces it's many, many, many side effects? Anyone who'll deny this to a woman is a big fat ignoramus.
    Good, then she woiuld have a medical reason to have it perscribed thereputically, and there are far fewer insurance companies that deny coverage when it is signed off as medically nesscessary by a MD...

    Besides, if it's offered through insurance companies, it's neither mandatory nor free. Most people still have to pay their insurance premiums, etc.

    They were far less of a problem when people carried the consequences of their own choices.

    No, it's about having it be covered by insurance companies.
    No, it's about forcing coverage by insurance companies.

    That's just complete asininity. Or, synonymously, a Moot post.

    A lot of people are getting diabetes from their lifestyle choices and that's what's really raising the cost of health care and insurance, not birth control pills. Now I certainly don't think I should have to pay for someone elses poor lifestyle choices, especially if they're a loud mouth lazy conservative, but far be it for me to tell the insurance companies who or what they can or can't cover. The same should apply to you.
    I believe this should be a decision between the insurer and the insured... period. The government should stay out of all of it.

    It's subsidized.
    The law also made gender based risk grouping illegal.
    So younger women, who tend to consume more medical care dollars, get a discount, while younger males, have to pay more.

    That's a disgusting, dumb, and indefensible generalization.
