Comment: Absolutely. In this case,
preventative medicine is much
more cost effective than the
cost for pre-natal care,
hospital bills, etc.
Comment: paying for birth control will means less unwanted babies this means less babies going hungry and being misyreated or left somewhere or killed paying for birth control is cheaper in the longrun than prenatal care birthing and baby doctors in the longrun paying a few dollors for bc is saving insurance co money think about it
Comment: Yes it should! It covers penis enhancement drugs, shallow cosmetic surgeries and other forms of medication.
Comment: I think it's silly that health insurance companies would rather pay for me to have a baby, even though I can't afford it, rather than pay for my birth control!
Comment: Of course they should - why on earth shouldn't they ? The only possible excuse they could have for denial is religious and that is not something that should enter into the equation. It's like denying payment for antibiotics to treat STDs. If they don't want to appear to condone having sex why do they pay for Viagra ?
Comment: Birth control is women's health care. Though churches should have exemptions.
Comment: I feel that they should seeing that im married and i was told by dr. not to have any more children and if i did the out come would not be good ...
Comment: I would think that it would cost the insurance company less to pay for birth control pills then to pay for the expense of people having babies since they can't afford the birth control.
Comment: I think they should. Cheaper to buy birth control products instead having children. Raising children cost more than birth cotrols items.
Comment: NO! Having sex is a personal choice, and is not a requirement for employment.
therefore is not an obligation an employer should be made responsible for allowing someone to engage in
unprotected sex of any nature.
The next thing on the docket will be required for employers to pay for condoms
since surely the stance will comes up, if they have to pay for females to obtain birth controls pills, then; there can be no discrimination and not pay for males to obtain condoms. Bottom line it is none of goverment business.
Comment: This exquisitely government infringing on
my religious beliefs!
Comment: Insurance is STILL a free enterprise and they are in business to make money and so are the businesses that buy the insurance.EVERYONE should pay something towards their medications and none should be free.
Comment: Absolutely NOT. An employer should not be required to provide healthcare for a service that goes against his moral or religious convictions.
Comment: no way!
