    I understand what she was doing.

    I don't have a problem with insurance paying for contraception. There are many medical reasons for prescribing 'The Pill' other than contraception.

    I don't have a problem with public service organizations (even if they are owned by a religious group like the Catholic Church) being required to comply with the law preventing discrimination toward protected classes, which the basis of sex is a protected class. I do have problem with the government infringing on First Amendment Rights of religious groups that are not providing a public service.

    As for me paying for it? No.

    I appreciate your honesty and.....


    It's a myth that you would have to pay for it. The money you pay for insurance only covers you and/or your family. If you get sick or need medicine then the insurance helps pay for it so you don't go broke. Women who want or need birth control have to buy their own insurance, unless they are below the poverty line and can't afford it.

    As a side, when I was looking for a photo, I couldn't help but notice there seems to be a lot more wrecked 'red' Ferraris than other colors.......a lot more.....

    wrecked ferrari - Google Search

    So what is it about red Ferraris that makes people want to drive themselves into a pole or under a bus? Is it because they have good insurance? Or do they expect other people to pay for their parapalegic hospital care and meds for the rest of their lives...assuming they survived, of course?
    The people who buy Ferrari's dont ask about how much they cost and dont need insurance. They can afford to buy the power company or the bus company if they dont already, they own one or both.

    Red is the color of passion and Ferrari is NOTHING if not passion mechanised and personified.

    As far the TRAVISTY of wrapping em around telephone poles and trees and the like, well it just shows that some rich people didnt get that way by being exceptionaly intelligent.

    Why should we pay for a $125 million per year insurance CEO? And Billions more to the other CEO's?

    Are you a stockholder? If not it's not your call, or concern.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Yes or no. Do you own stock in the company? If not then it is none of your business.

    You can choose to 'pay' elsewhere. No one is forcing anyone to pay anyone anything. Up until PPACA that is.

    Re: Should We Pay for Sandra Fluke's Contraception?

    After reading some of the comments over the last several days, I've come to the conclusion that I just don't know what the right thing to do would be. I want to make access to birth control easier, but I don't want insurance premiums to go through the roof because we're covering this, that and everything else; although I still don't see covering BC under HC insurance plans to be the HUGE problem that some seem to make it out to be.
