Update: I’ve been informed that the ruling did not rule out the coverage of contraceptive. Instead, lawmakers found a way to make folks on both sides of the fence happy. One way or another, contraceptives are still covered for employees, whether by the company or the government. That is, in my opinion, the more important thing to accomplish, no matter what you believe. We all have to share this place, let’s make it tolerable for everyone. Thank you brittdyer77, for the clarification!
I’m gonna say this and I’ll probably get slammed, but I’m gonna say it anyway; if the government sees fit to financially support children whose parents have a low income, then why do they have a problem supporting women who want to prevent pregnancy in the first place? From a business standpoint, it seems like supporting contraceptives would be a smart move, especially when so many of our country’s citizens are helping to financially support (via taxes turned welfare) so many of our country’s children, whether they are theirs or not. Why are America’s lawmakers dead set against encouraging responsibility? Who’s looking at the big picture?
Having said that, whether I want to have kids or take contraceptive to prevent pregnancy, the first responsibility of paying for my kids or my meds falls to me. I won’t count on anyone else to help me pay for either, but I still don’t see why contraceptives shouldn’t be covered under health care insurance.
Okay, toss your rocks.
