Have you interviewed each woman to know why she seeks contraceptives?<quoted text>
Do you know what the purposes are for each man using Viagra for sex? I don't. How would a company oppose it? On what grounds? Would they have to run personal checks on each employee to see if they are married and then conduct interviews to see if people volunteer whether or not they are having sex for procreation purposes? It would be pretty much impossible to try to oppose it when they have no proof it is being used in violation of church beliefs. If you
Why do you care? You are no longer in the church. It only affects church members. If women wish to belong to an organization that teaches against sex for recreation and do it anyway then that is their choice. But they can hardly expect their church to pay for it.
So you see it ask okay for the government to intervene and make Medicare pay for Viagra (government stepping in to force employers to contribute to something whether they believe in it or not) but it's not okay for government to intervene in birth control issues?
It is not just about women, though that is the main focus. It is about government getting in the lives of citizens.
But, men don't see anything at all wrong with the government forcing Medicare to pay for their ED drugs (which raises the cost of Medicare for all of us..yes, even women) but those same men will stand up and scream about contraceptives.
I don't know if you are purposefully overlooking that, or if you're just dancing around it.
I have not argued that people should pay for something they don't believe in. In fact, I've done just the opposite. My problem still lies in the inequality of how our government treats men and women on almost every level.
If you care to address the issue I raised in my post of whether or not it's right for government to make people pay for something they don't believe in, ACROSS THE BOARD, where any issue of sexual activity is concerned, then I am open to hearing your opinion. Right now, it seems that you are in favor of government stepping in and forcing all of us who pay for Medicare to share the costs of ED drugs for men.
Whether or not I am in church is not the issue. I didn't pay into medicare all those years to pay for ED drugs. Contraceptives keep babies who are not wanted from coming into this world. People who don't have the money to raise another child use these drugs more than any other sector of the country. They don't want another child for many reasons. Financial, emotional, and physical items come under the list of reasons. No one should have to explain why they don't want children. No one should be forced not to have children OR have them because their husband/boyfriend doesn't want to use a condom. The only way to 'enforce' the use of contraceptives is to force everyone to pay for it through insurance premiums. That is no more right than forcing everyone to pay for ED drugs. There just seems to be a disconnect for men when it comes to this issue.
I think people in this country have become so blind that they do not see their freedoms slipping away at an astonishing rate. And I also see that people do not consider what is right when it comes to gender. Gender bias is alive and well.
