On August 1st, 2012 the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) required all health insurers and employers to cover the cost of contraceptives in their health insurance plans. The provision currently exempts religious organizations and churches.
Sex is a leisure activity, just like sky diving. You don't have to do it; but if you do pay for your own parachute.
Unfortunately yes, birth control is needed in this hyper-sexualized society that progressives utterly adore, but I'm not having a single penny of mine cover for the recklessness of others.
Yes! We make such a big deal about pro-life, but won't give birth control to people who need it. If a person can't afford birth control every month, do you really think that they can afford a child? People are going to have sex. It's natural and in our DNA, but we are smart enough creatures that we can get our fix without having a child. Religion says all these things about it, but religion should have nothing to do with you insurance or government.
If pregnancy is treated as an illness then all forms of pre fertilization birth control should be considered preventive care and covered under the insurances preventative care policies. These policies do. Or need to be the same for all companies.
Yes, depending solely on the fact that there should be SOME sort of population control, especially considering that younger people are half the time uneducated/get tangled with emotions that coerce their decisions, such as having a child young and not being able to provide.
Yes, birth control is a problem for a lot of Americans. Especially since we have no control of our population as children don't practice safe sex. From sexually transmitted diseases to unplanned births. I believe that the prerequisite to receive free birth control though are preliminary screenings to ensure that those that take birth control understand that birth control is not 100% and that choosing abstinence is always a better choice.
Yes, birth control is a medical necessity for many women, and Insurance companies should not be allowed to push their "morality" on the general public.
If you don't like there morality find a different insurance company
Yes! Until poverty, child abuse and therefore potential to be educated sufficiently is successfully addressed, birth control needs to be very easily accessed. An educated mind is a less emotional and impulsive mind. I think it should be available ALSO OTC but kept/stored behind the pharmacy counter.
If you need help with birth control...first lesson-close your damn legs
Yes. I believe it should.. the number one seller in America is sex and if it's going to continue that way than I believe it should be offered free to the people who feel the need to be on BC... Especially in teens nowadays. It can stop the abortion rate to an extent.
