    What's wrong with the word fornicate? I also used the word boink, I could use the word coitus also but I suspect the classic word would get deleted. I am not clear on what your point is and I suspect you have but a fleeting idea yourself.

    What do I have to do with it?

    Anyway, there's no reason that insurance ought to cover contraception. Insurance is a way of pooling risk. You pay a relatively small premium to an insurance company, with the expectation that if something expensive happens that is covered by the policy for which you are paying, the insurance will pay the costs thereof. It's actually a form of gambling. You're betting the insurance company that something bad and expensive will happen to you, and if it does, you “win” the bet. The insurance company has to charge enough in premiums to cover the cost of the potential claim adjusted by the risk of that claim taking place.

    Contraception isn't about any risk. If you choose to use it, it's an ongoing cost. For insurance to cover it, they would have to charge you more in premiums than it would cost for you to simply buy it yourself.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    unless, of course, one is concerned about things such as individual liberty, religious freedom, etc. but hey, **** those things, where's my free stuff?

    I don't see how saying we invented two centuries makes sense so I can say whatever I want in response.

    And then we have the whole religious liberty thing.

    As if priests are going to be forced to hand out bread, wine and birth control during mass.

    We're talking about HMO's here champ.

    In general, no one. In this case..

    Business owners. Also a violation of property rights.

    Your reasonings kind of suck. Its not just OK because its not that big of a deal. Its still a violation.

    Perhaps you should actually read what I wrote. You know, rather than just make up whatever you think I wrote. Reading Comprehension. Try it.

    The rest of it is just about stupid crap that is once again not connected.
    If you have no ability to critically think, sure it doesn't.

    That's a dumb rhetorical question.
