    In an ironic twist of fate, the majority of pregnant women in the US take multi-vitamins.

    Why are half the population denied routine healthcare because of their gender? Are they second class citizens?
    Don't work out, work in.

    Why would you assume that "they're covered for those services?" Insurance plans can differ substantially in the types of things they will cover and to what extent. Thus, it's not true that "Everyone receives the same coverage," the way insurance works, you get different levels of coverage depending on how much you're willing to pay for your particular insurance plan.

    Yes, but as I have stated that was already allowable with a simple physician's waiver before the mandate. Why now is it mandated for elective? IOW the medically necessary was already covered, now it doesn't matter and we all have to pay for some lifestyle choices.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    No one is being denied anything. I believe the whole issue is how it is paid for. Should some things be left to individuals to pay for themselves directly? Or does an insurance company pay the bill for everything?

    If men ovulated, it would be covered.

    What? Is there something wrong with a college age male buying his own condoms or a college age female buying her own birth control pills?

    You take a peculiarly narrow view of the indications and uses of such medications.
