Ok, well...if you ever work for the Jehovah's Witnesses or a Mormon employer or whatever religion you absolutely do not believe in and would never subscribe to, and they want to impose their religious beliefs into your health care, then I guess you'll be happy to betray your own religion.
I asked you a question.

Here it is again....Why does the bases of why they pulled it OR never covered it ever,concern you? Religious or personal on the part of the employer,still affects MY choices.

What employees personal or religious beliefs are never offered to the employees. We get offered insurance. Some things are covered,some things are not. THAT is the point of this hobbylobby issue for you.

You are acting out for this particular case and yet,you don't care about other care or choices that are denied. You care about what you care about and turn a blind eye to anothers issues.

No, it doesn't take years for an STD to be found through testing.
Who the hell are you to tell anyone else what is appropriate for their body? Sex can be purely recreational and in fact is good for one's mental and physical health. There is no automatic emotional tie to someone just because you have sex.
First rule of safe sex is that you are responsible for your own protection--you don't have sex without taking precautions (unless you're hetero and want to conceive). Women need to insist the man use a condom, or should insist only on non-invasive forms of sex play. It would help if people stopped confusing love with lust, and to deal with sex as an activity, not a Harlequin fantasy.
<quoted text>
You are wrong about STD's showing up years later or unknown for years. There are many illness and diseases that show up for years. It could even be false negatives or similar/mistaken/misdiagnosed symptoms.

What is with you telling me that sex has positive benefits? I am WELL aware of that dude. LOL.

Let us not be so ignorant though Peteyboy. Having multiple sex partners is NEVER a positive thing at the end of the day. In this day and age,sex without boundaries can be deadly AND/or unhealthy regardless of a man using a condom. Please get your head out of the sand. Also,stop comparing the joys of sex with the dangers of it. You are deceiving people by covering up the truth.

BTW,..i don't confuse love for lust. Love is mutual and all about caring for the other. Lust is a selfish act where only you matter. That is negative in all aspects of life.

Not being frigid isn't the same as being immature or out of control. Some people actually LIKE sex, and not edverybody treats it as a religious experience (because it's not.)
<quoted text>
Again,here you are with your selfish attitude. The risks aren't just to be assessed by the participants. YOU may spread the disease to an innocent person. Maybe even not know that you are carrying that disease at the time. What person decides that an orgasm is worth getting a deadly or horrible disease? What ignorant person doesn't know that condoms break and are not all that effective? OR killing your developing child that you created at conception?

You talk about comprehensive sex ed for people and it seems like you missed the lesson.

Who treats sex as a "religious experience"? Better yet,who is thinking while having sex with their spouse that they are having a "religious experience"? I am bonding and enjoying my husband when I have sex. Am I aware that God invented this wonderful act as pleasure for me? Yes. He obviously made it pleasurable for a reason. Yet boundaries benefit our health(emotionally,physically) .

I find it sad that you use sex as a selfish act instead. There are one too many of you in this world who cheapen such an amazing act.

Your posts here are full of nothing but recycled RCC screeds;I doubt you change when at a CPC.
Alternative medicine is not the same as preventative medicine. And the cult of "toxins" is medical mythology. Unless you're sucking down arsenic, your diet doesn't have much of any toxin in it. What your body doesn't use will be filtered out by the liver and kidneys--and anything that isn't filtered out that way won't be removed by the ridiculous methods altmed gurus recommend.
Your immune system doesn't filter out your bad emotions.

Your entire argument is based on opinion.
Your opinion is fertilization is pregnancy.
Your opinion is a fertilized egg is a baby.
Your opinion is certain contraceptives are abortifacients.
That's all opinion.
Fact is implantation begins pregnancy. Otherwise, one could argue a petri dish or a tank is "pregnant" because it stores a fertilized egg/embryo.
Fact is a fertilized egg is not an infant/baby. If it were, you could bottle feed the egg and it would need it's diaper changed periodically.
Fact is stopping implantation is not terminating a pregnancy.
You like to twist the actual truth, the actual scientific/biological facts with your religious beliefs.
I used to say, sure - go ahead, twist away, but you can't keep it in your own backyard. You want to throw your sh*t into everyone elses. Guess what -- they don't want your garbage.
""""" "the actual scientific/biological facts """"

You ARE kidding me,right? How dare you redefine scientific/biological facts and pass it off as truth.

You are in favor of killing as choice,a womans developing,biological offspring. OWN it STO and stop cowardly dancing your way around it with you immature antics.

We all have free will. Killing/harming/abusing/neglec ting/etc.. another is abusing that free will.

You,as a former Catholic,should understand what free will means and why offered it to us. You don't,and once again,I find that tragic when people reject their God out of ignorance.

Actually nutrition is alternative medicine. It's holistic care. Mind,body,soul care.
It's neither alternative (nutrition is mainstream science) nor medicine.

Yes,my initial post to STO was stating a fact that my insurance company does not pay for alternative health care. And? Like I pointed out,there many avenues of alternative health care/preventive care/holistic approach,etc..
You were complaining. No one would reasonably expect an insurance company to be buying your groceries or dragging you to the gym. I think it's pretty clear you were talking about something else but you probably don't want to say because it's some embarrassing nonsense like homeopathy or reiki.

"As far as my alternative medicine approach,which is preventive medicine,I don't know why being healthy by destressing,eating healthy foods,avoiding toxins/chemicals and exercising is considered "nuts" in your opinion. Wanting my immune system to function as it should is a good thing -mentally,physically and emotionally. Sad that you think that is weird.
BTW,I am not anti-traditional medicine. I am preventive care first."
This discussion started because you said your thousand dollar a month health insurance doesn't cover the alternative and preventive care you want. And right there in your own words you describe what you mean by alternative and preventive.
"destressing" -- how should they cover it? Massage? Aroma-therapy? Pay for your dog food when times are tough?
"eating healthy foods" -- how should they cover it? Give you 10 lashes for eating fast food? Or maybe they should do your grocery shopping for you -- ya know, make sure you get enough greens in your diet.
"avoiding toxins/chemicals" - how should they cover it? No, really.
"exercising" - You want them to pay for your stairmaster? What? How should they cover it?
Hire someone to whip your fatass off the sofa and into shape?
Sounds like you want someone following you around to make sure yer clean livin'!
My examples where just that-examples. People like you,and peter think that means only vitamins. I explained some of the other forms. That was it.

You,like Peter and box,are absolutely clueless about anything that you are not aware of. I don't blame you but at least have the decency to expand your horizons before you give smart alic comments about it.Then again,I really don't care what you know or don't know,believe or don't believe. YA know? LOL

My point remains unaddressed by you in the meantime. THAT I would like to here out of you,not your personal,naive,ignorant opinion that distracts from answering.

A womans developing,biological child(her baby if you will)is present in the womb. A Dr will be payed to kill the life OF that baby/child/human/offspring in an abortion. THAT is what abortion is.

Again,...I am not interested in hearing your personal, ignorant opinion. My point was made to STO anyway and I have no use for your silliness.

Although given STOs history here, he will dodge questions that he won't or can't answer

I give it a try tho ((shrugs shoulders))

The link that you provided earlier "already had some"? Some *what*?

Where are these "TAPES" that you claimed people had to expose CPC's? Who are all these people,govt,medical proffessionals,etc..?

The link above here is ONE tape. From ONE girl. A tape,btw,that was made by a proabort girl,who had an abortion.(exactly my point as far as an agenda behind bad mouthing CPC) This girl says that she made this tape due to years before,supposedly went into a CPC when she had a scheduled abortion already(@@ yeah,okay) and experienced lies.

She has an agenda. She works for the proabortion movement who is in the business of making money off a girl aborting her child,not by keeping her child alive. Get it??????????

No lies where made on that tape btw.

Interesting that Abby Johnson was mentioned. She is an EX proabortion worker who revealed much deception when her conscience got the better of her. She,like MANY,including Dr Bernard Nathanson(abortionist and founder of NARAL) expose the proabortion lies and deceit. OOhh,...but THERE word means nothing anymore to you people. ONLY when they were still part of the business or support,was it "fact".

Nothing on that tape was a lie btw.

What's the point of me providing sources when you're too lazy to read them?

They include the a Congressional Committee on Government Reform investigation, The Fort Worth Star Telegram, the Toronto Star, the New York Times, and the medical journal Contraception.

The girl's agenda, if any, is irrelevant. The CPC worker gave her false information. She told her that the Morning After Pill functions by causing a period, is equivalent to an abortion, and is unsafe. All these statements were false.

She then launched into a lecture about pre-marital sex, which was totally inappropriate.
