    should have to provide health insurance that covers the cheaper option of their employees having fewer children and fewer abortions if they so choose."

    Uh, they do provide contraception under their insurance plan.

      2) IUDs are some women's only option due to contraindications for hormonal birth control, and/or side effects.  

      They're also more effective than the Pill, as I understand it.  Just as the Pill is more effective than condoms, which are more effective than diaphragms.

      I am so fucking tired of the "birth control is still covered" bullshit popping up on DKos these days.  That's only true if women's individual health requirements are ignored -- i.e., if we don't treat women as full human beings.

      Avast!  Away with thee!  Post this right-wing talking point no more!

        "Away with thee?" I'm trying to learn here, thank you.

        So, Hobby Lobby is no longer required to, but they do still cover some. Good for them.
