What I'd like to know, and I haven't seen it asked anywhere so far, is; what is gov't doing with their proverbial nose in women's issues anyway? Who gave the gov't the right to make decisions about birth control? I think they are crossing the line with this one. As a taxpayer I don't appreciate being targeted to pay for someone else's contraception. Why would the taxpayers have their noses in the birth control and/or sexual habits of women? At what point are "adults" required to take responsibility for their own health issues? If you can't afford birth control pills don't subject yourself to the risk of pregnancy, it's really a no-brainer. There's a lot of things I don't like paying for, as a taxpayer, like: The "handouts" given to the banks and car manufacturers, TWICE!! The nerve; showing up in their private jets to take our money!! So, what's really the difference here; giving tax dollars to an irresponsible bank or an irresponsible adult having unprotected sex? We ALL know that insurance companies don't want to pay for anything, but, why is the gov't going to help them continue that habit?
