Donald Trump to Allow More Employers to Deny No-Cost Birth Control

There are 275 comments on the Time story from Oct 6, 2017, titled Donald Trump to Allow More Employers to Deny No-Cost Birth Control. In it, Time reports that:

President Donald Trump is allowing more employers to opt out of providing no-cost birth control to women by claiming religious or moral objections, issuing new rules Friday that take another step in rolling back the Obama health care law. The new policy is a long-expected revision to federal rules that require most companies to cover birth control as preventive care for women, at no additional cost.

Sounds like he cut a deal. Force people to buy healthcare that doesn't offer any care.

Here is your standard right-wing politician. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.), had urged the woman he was having an affair with to abort her pregnancy last January. On the same day the report was published, Murphy voted for legislation that would ban abortion after 20 weeks. In fact, Murphy has a history of supporting anti-abortion legislation, from bolstering efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, to voting to grant fetuses protection under the 14th amendment.

If only they would have had free birth control.

As long as there’s free abortions, who needs condoms?

Men shouldn’t need to concern themselves with what is clearly a woman’s problem, right?

Why should a woman's boss have to pay for her birth control in the first place? This is progressivism for you... Just because somebody works for your business doesn't mean you should have to provide them healthcare - much less birth control.

America will be better off - and my just survive as a free and prosperous nation - if we get rid of all progressives and progressive policies in government at all levels - city, county, state and federal government must be purged of all progressives and their policies! The American people (not to mention America herself) HAVE HAD ENOUGH!

The war to save America from the progressive globalists HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN!

Why shouldn't a woman's boss have to buy her a car or even a place to live, or pay for her food, etc - since they are also supposed to provide free birth control?

If we carry progressivism out to its logical conclusion, then we can all see just how absurd and downright ridiculous progressivism is.

It's like that Stephen Paddock was a progressive trying to force a repeal of the 2nd Amendment. His behavior and the circumstances surrounding his crime, strongly suggest progressive thinking.

Evil has multiple personalities, and progressive thinking is one of them...And Paddock clearly thought like a progressive - A cold and evil, calculating SOB.

If the woman's boss is poking her on a regular basis chances are he has already bought those things for her!

The Trump Administration agrees with the Supreme Court decision rendered after the Obama Administration attacked Little Sisters of the Poor.

Women (and men) have always had no-cost birth control and never needed employers to provide it.

That's a pointless debate. Nobody is trying to save money. The only real issue is about sick conservatives who want to see ghetto minorities suffer in financial trouble.
How is this a "ghetto minorities" only issue at all? Are they somehow the only race or people that take birth control? This is not some race issue so let's try to keep it on the facts and actual issue and not use it as yet another fake outrage cry of racism.

Liberals are already killing minority babies at a disproportionate rate and focus, as per Planned Parenthood's Eugenics founding and policy. Liberals flooding the ghettos with deadly and debilitating drugs adds to especially the Black downfall. Conservatives attempting to reverse Obama's imposition of a 25% unemployment rate amongst 18 to 26 year old Blacks has to be hidden by the typical Liberal race card tactic.

Sounds like sixty year old men and women won't be forced to buy birth control. Freedom of religion is part of the first amendment. Just one more time Obama ignored the constitution.

It could include a congressman's girlfriend as long as they "get" those minorities.

If you don't want an abortion, don't get one. Stop meddling in other's healthcare. This amounts to religious discrimination on top of racial discrimination on top of class warfare. It's the class warfare that has no legal protection and where all of this nonsense begins.
