I have a question.<quoted text>The real question is why can't women pay for their own contraceptives and abortions?
Do you realize that there is a relationship between the availability of contraception & abortions?
Instead of constant whining about abortions, why don't you favor reducing the number of abortions by reducing the number of unwanted pregnancies?
The discussion is including contraception services in health insurance policies and offering these without a copay. The cost of this is paid as it is included in the premiums.
Currently every state has laws as to what must be covered in health care policies offered in their state. The ACA in defining what is minimum coverage spells out what policies need to cover to considered sufficient for mandate purposes.
That does not mean these are free & paid for by the government at all. It means you a person buys a policy, it is included in that policy & is part of the make up in determining the policy cost.
It is sad that the Catholic Church spends so much time fighting this contraception rule in its outside business interest.
Is the Catholic Church so desperate to make money through increased membership through higher birth rate among its members to outlaw contraception?
Evidently so. I'm thinking they should spend more time weeding out child molesters from their priesthood but hey, that's just me.
I find it funny that the rabid right has jumped on this contraception bandwagon as if right wing women aren't having sex outside of marriage.
Putting Contraception in these healthcare plans ensures better, healthier, doctor monitored contraception. The cost of contraception extends beyong the cost of the pills, patches, injections.
More contraception use & ease of availability reduces the number of abortions.
But hey, as long as the availability of the abortion issue outweighs the reduction of abortions, we will continue to have this fight.
