  •  Under ACA, there is no copay for birth control (1+ / 0-)

    (except for catastrophic plans), so ACA treats birth control more favorably than most every other medication.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.

    •  Funny, given your tag line, I would think (0+ / 0-)

      you would be a big booster of birth control.

      •  I am. It should be free to all. Even those (0+ / 0-)

        without insurance.

        I am also in favor in being as accurate as possible on public policy issues.

        The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
