Except for where birth control has a use to treat a medical condition the government has not right forcing a company to pay for it just as the government should have no say so on the use of things like the morning after pill or abortions.

I am so glad the reich wing is pushing to take rights away from a generation that has always had the right to birth control.

Americans don't like seeing rights being taken away.

When Americans are asking gov to focus on the economy, you gotta love the reich wing's decision to make a issue resolved 30 years, an issue today.

Even men appreciate the 90% of women who use birth control.

The Fed is demanding any non-church/organization taking Fed aid should abide by Federal requirements.

If a company, that doesn't get fed aide wants to pick an insurance plan that doesn't include birth control, but would pay for a man's Viagra, they have every right to do so.

Yet a proposed republicare bill in Virginia is demanding doctors do unnecessary medical procedures that the company, taxpayer, or person has to pay for.

Focus:

1. How much did gas cost you this week?

2. How much was your grocery bill?

3. Are you better off after 3 years of Obama's policies and programs.

The tripe is manufactured every election year by democrats.

They don't want the public focused on the real problems.

Don't worry the democrats will bring up abortion, birth control, etc in 2014 and 2016, 2018 and 2020, etc. etc etc

The right is to have contraception being considered part of woman's health, and having it covered like Viagra is for men.

Many woman today have never seen it any other way. They had insurance coverage prior to Viagra ever being invented.

Yet repubs now try to push legislation that takes insurance coverage away, when women and men, would prefer to keep it the way it is now.

Families, who use contraception for birth control of cancer prevention, would now be forced to pay for it, while the man would still have Viagra covered.

No matter how you choose to see it, repubs want to take away insurance coverage that is already a given.

SEE BLUNT RUBIO BILL.

I am truly happy the reich has chosen this path. Should win you tons of female voters...lol

They loved that Virginia Republicare Bill, didn't they?

90% of insurance policies DO NOT cover Viagra. 90 % of insurance policies DO cover birth control pills.

I liked Murkowski.

Then I hated her.

Then I liked her again.

Then I hated her.

I wish she didn't give me whiplash.

the Blunt bill is about so much more than contraception.
and her responsibility is to vote they way her state wants her to, not the way her party wants her to.

Republican "Pro-Life" bill, "Protecting the Sanctity of Human Life Act": Makes abortion illegal, makes birth control pills and devices illegal, bans sale and/or possession of condoms (Catholic Concession).

Death penalty for abortion involvement and birth control use. Life imprisonment for sale and/or possession of condoms!

Democrats want to take my money away so I can pay for mouchers, Republicans want to to take over my body and take away my reproductive rights.

When are people going to realize that the Libertarian party is the only one out there who have freedom and liberty of the people at the heart of their party beliefs.

If they are taking taxpayer dollars they should follow the law. Mythology should never trump sound science! If papists and fundietards want to engage in politicking then let them pay taxes!
