The fight over a contraception rule tied to Obamacare has religious liberty advocates and women's health groups at loggerheads over a simple act: What does it mean when a group of Colorado nuns signs a release form?

That whole 'birth control' MANDATE is so very wrong.

Men don't need the pill; children don't need the pill; post menopausal women don't need the pill.

So even though only PART of the population has ANY USE for it, EVERYONE has to pay for it in their insurance premiums, so those few who do use it can have it for free!!!

The only reason more people aren't objecting to this, is that we know that people who get it for FREE are less likely to make babies we'd all have to pay for later. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

I was wondering if everybody else is getting them too.....I predict the slow death of Topix, as we will eventually get tired of the hassle. On my machine, they dart in from the left, at the top and right if your cursor gets anywhere near them, they blow up full size, the lower right has some kind of byte hogging video running, and then in the middle, some big ad blows up right in your face when you least expect it.

Those companies are buying ads to run in a format that only about 20 people view on a regular basis, if you only count Harvey once.

The Supreme Court ruled the Mandate Constitutional, those little Sisters can shut down their practice if they don't want to follow the laws for Employers in the United States.

Their intentions is to force their religious beliefs on their employees and stifle their employees freedom of expression.

The male birth control pill won't be available for ten more years. http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/...

Men still need the WOMAN to take the pill if they don't want to father a child.

The MANDATE for ALL to pay for it so that women can have it for FREE, IS MARXISM.(From each according to his ability, to each according to his need). In fact Obamacare having some pay FULL PRICE and some receiving SUBSIDIES is also based on the same concept.

Hopefully Obamacare will cover the blood clots, heart attacks and other nasty consequences associated with taking the pill.
