Women were being told to just go away and die on this one. It is sad that legislation was necessary to hold health care insurers accountable for this.

It's a good thing in theory but the Insurance company will raise their premium rates across the board for everyone. They will make it up one way or another. We shall see if goverment intervention was such a good thing or not?

This is not about telling women to "just go away and die". This is about making everyone - including men - pay for a test that women should be paying for on their own. Just because a test may help some women catch the cancer before it's too late doesn't mean that these should be included under mandated coverage.

I resent the use of the phrase "womens' right to breast cancer screening". This is NOT a "right". This is a mandated handout from everyone's pocket to pay for some people's precieved "need". You want a mammogram? Great. Pay for it yourself.
