This is so full of landmines and lawsuits, I don't know where to start. As much as I would like birth control to be free to all, and mandatory for some; The government has no right to force hospitals owned and operated by churches to distribute something that goes against their faith based rules.
As long as Planned Parenthood isn't involved at all.......:icon_cool
Some days I want to shake your hand, and others; I want to kick you in the balls with steel toed boots.
You mean trooper Jackboots
Get out of our lives, you fucking assholes.
Listen sinner, we must populate the Earth with as many potential brainwashable lambs as possible. It's not what God wants, it's what people who claim to know what god wants need.
But, but, but...I can't get pregnant. Trust me. There's really no need for me to be insured for this.
You'll make up for it with STD's.
Cool. So can we get rid of those annoying age of consent laws too?
I've seen some hot 15 year olds that look very bangable.
I'm watching House, M.D. right now. He has some blonde jailbait trying to take his cane for a ride. I found this post and my TV watching rather ironic.
I think I can safely say that birth control is not an issue in your case.
is it too late for barry's mother to have an abortion?
OH it is if his tax dollars are going to pay for it
I'm trying to figger out how many trimesters have passed to see
if they can make it retroactive.
DOES NOT APPROVE
I don't see the issue here.
It isn't a law FORCING anyone to take birth control, it is simply making it available without a co-pay if you DO want to take it.
If the church's sheep are so undisciplined that they will take birth control just because it is available then boo fucking hoo.
Besides, I remember reading that this was going to be happening MONTHS ago. It isn't like Obama came up with the idea, it came from the HHS department.
You can't bitch and complain about abortions and then get pissed off if a viable alternative to UNWANTED PREGNANCIES is presented.
That might prove difficult. Enjoy your Secret Service visit though.
No, but there is FORCING going on. So FORCING is the issue.
hopefully this will reduce the welfare numbers
You really don't understand how insurance works do you? EVERYONE with insurance pays a little of the cost for everyone else's medical problems; thus if every insurance policy is required to cover FREE contraception, then EVERYONE is paying for the cost of contraception in their insurance premiums. I am a man. There is no reason that I should have to pay for contraceptive in my insurance plan. Also, you do realize that just because the government says something is "free" doesn't mean that it doesn't cost anything to research, manufacture, ship, stock, and sell, right?
Cost of birth control without insurance - $30 - $60
so, from 16-30 it costs $5040 - $10,080 to keep a woman on birth control.
Total cost of having a child from conception to delivery is around $20,000 according to the EOB's I had handy from my wife's last pregnancy.
It is the Fiscally conservative thing to do to provide birth control.
So if you don't have cancer then your insurance shouldn't cover cancer treatment.
If you don't have high blood pressure, it shouldn't cover blood pressure medicine...
Your argument doesn't make any fucking sense.
Unless you are in a "white men only" insurance pool.
It would be like women bitching that their insurance premiums pay for your prostate exam.
It IS forcing up the cost of everyone's insurance policies, though. Combined with the individual mandate for everyone to have health insurance, the government just robbed more money from the pockets of every american.
I cannot help that you have no reasoning skills, and therefore my post did not make sense TO YOU. You see, I am a man and therefore I CANNOT get pregnant. My sex does not exclude me from SOMEDAY getting cancer, high blood pressure, or any host of other diseases. My sex does exclude me from getting cervical cancer, from getting pregnant, from needing a hysterectomy, from going through menopause, and from needing birth control. Your ability to properly understand reason is saddening.
Oh, and women should bitch that their insurance premiums pay for prostate exams. The states' influence in the insurance industry has driven up costs dramatically by mandating that every plan MUST cover a whole host of unnecessary medical procedures.
