So does this mean you feel the author is incorrect when he says there is a double standard out there for men and women regarding the actual issue at hand?

Providing birth control is an effective way to keep down overall healthcare costs. Gym memberships should also be partially covered. Anything that can actually prevent much larger costs occurring should be looked in to.


Great, now you want others to cover the costs of your gym memberships.

If you want to make this about health....all you need is a pair of tennis shoes. You can get the exercise you need by running...you don't need others to pay for a gym membership.

You guys are ridiculous.

Similarities abound. Rich white middle age men telling women how to and what to do with their bodies.


This has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with telling women what to do with their bodies. This is only about the government forcing "private institutions and companies" to cover items that are against their beliefs and tenants.

If a woman wants the pill, she can pay for it.

I don't believe Viagra, birth control, etc. should be covered. These are personal choices....not medically needed procedures or treatments.

Now, in the case that the pill is needed for medical reasons....it absolutely should be covered.

And I love it, and so does Obama. This attitude that they've revealed is going to single handedly mean a 10% decrease in female support for the GOP.


“We all agreed that this seemed like a throwback to 40 years ago,” said Ms. Russell, 57, a retired teacher from Iowa City who describes herself as an evangelical Christian and “old school” Republican of the moderate mold.


Until the baby shower, just two weeks ago, she had favored Mitt Romney for president.


Not anymore. She said she might vote for President Obama now. “I didn’t realize I had a strong viewpoint on this until these conversations,” Ms. Russell said.

-----

“Everybody is so busy telling us how we should act in the bedroom, they’re letting the country fall through the cracks,” said Fran Kelley, a retired public school worker in Seattle who voted for Senator John McCain over Mr. Obama in the 2008 election. Of the Republican candidates this year, she added, “They’re nothing but hatemongers trying to control everyone, saying, ‘Live as I live.’ ”
She continued, “If Republicans would stop all this ridiculous talk about contraception, I’d consider voting in November.”
