    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.
    Harry, we've been through this before. Birth control is more than birth control. I know you know that, so why are you not taking that into consideration????

    What about contraception for menstrual problems?

    There's no mandate to cover Viagra.


    Lots of things that appear in regular insurance packages are elective. Are you suggesting we pare down Obamacare to only things that are specifically life-saving? I might agree with that.
    I'm suggesting it's entirely between the insurance company and whoever buys the policy.

    And that's fine because it doesn't involve the taxpayers. Once you start making it a tax issue though, the government *IS* the one who buys the policy.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Because she said her kids are a gift from god, she is a conservative?

    I'm not sure how we got to the government buying insurance.

    That doesn't make any sense, but then, what else is new? You enjoy your evening.

    Because it doesn't change the fact that, it's already affordable and easy to access for middle and upper income women, who are predominately the group that benefits from this.

    Poor women tend to not have insurance, so the point is moot, that it helps them.
    Water is good for my health, my insurance should pay for my water bill.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The whole "every insurance company has to cover contraception" is just a prelude to Obamacare.
