“No employer should be forced to pay for contraception unrelated to medical issues for it's employees. That is absurd. However, no employer should be in the position of having to approve medical uses nor should the employee be in the position of having to tell their employer why they need specific medicines or medical procedures. Most if not all health plans have criteria and rules for approving medical procedures and prescription drugs which the employer is never even aware of. There already exists a system for handling this. Why reinvent the wheel? What the hell does constitutional law have to do with contraception? This the ultra conservatives vs. the ultra liberals and they are going to bring the rest of down with them. Meanwhile, gas is over 4 dollars a gallon, we can't educate our kids, we're stuck in a useless war and our economy on the verge of shattering into a million pieces. Condoms are pretty cheap, free at the hospital, and I've never heard of anyone being denied birth control pills by their doctor. Contraception is not a health issue as much as it is a choice issue. Just use it. But don't ask me to pay for it too.
Wonderful distractions while the world goes to hell in a hand basket around us.”

“"This the ultra conservatives vs. the ultra liberals". You've got that right. I'm a liberal and it isn't liberal to force others to act against their beliefs. Thanks for your clarity.”

“Employer sponsored health insurance is part of an employees compensation. An employee pays a portion of the premium.Prescription drug coverage is just part of an insurance plan and legal drugs should be covered as a matter of course. YOU JOE RV are NOT being asked to pay for anything.”
