“The control of women and babies has been a part of every repressive regime in history.
This has been happening all along.”
No one is dying access to birth control. The last time I checked it was still legal with a prescription. They are just saying the employer doesn’t have to provide the coverage. If you want it, buy it.
No one is denying access to birth control.
Making it unaffordable is essential denying access. Closing down clinic that provide it so you can’t obtain it is denying access.
They are just saying the employer doesn’t have to provide the coverage. If you want it, buy it.
I do buy it when I pay for my coverage every month. I do buy it after I pay my deductible and copay. It’s a medical prescription given by a doctor after an examination. My employer doesn’t have a say in my medical treatment.
Women are being punished because birth control is for women and not men. It gives us freedom over our bodies. But, it’s considered an “extra”. An excuse for sluts to fuck. Ignoring the fact that birth control is provided for all kinds of reasons other than preventing pregnancy it’s wrong to deny us medication prescribed by doctors because they don’t agree.
If a person’s religion doesn’t allow blood transfusions can they deny coverage for that? What about a DNR? If taking life saving measures goes against God’s plans would they be able to deny coverage to someone who received them?
No one would tolerate that.
This isn’t about religious freedom.
This is about controlling women, their bodies, and their choices.
Men’s sex lives aren’t regulated. Their limp dick is covered by insurance.
Side note. Even if my birth control IS so I can have sex without getting pregnant…. So what?!
Is safe sex for women a privilege? Is choosing to prevent pregnancy because someone is young/old/poor/done having kids/isn’t ready/has medical issues a privilege?
Is medication related to my uterus a privilege?
This. Is. About. Controlling. Women.
Also, it’s just smart to cover birth control.
Cover my $680 IUD every five years that I still have a copay on under my insurance I also pay for…
I get pregnant and you cover all my prenatal care and my $23,000 c-section (I had one before do I’d have one again) and then my child’s medical coverage for 26 years. Which makes sense?
Telling me to “keep my legs shut” isn’t your right. Women have a right to a sex life.
Plus, I’m married. So, according to these religious people, aren’t I required to have sex with my husband whenever he wants?
So, it’s either I have sex on command and I’d get pregnant and that would cost money… Or, I don’t have the right to reproductive healthcare and can’t afford to have sex.
Again, this is about controlling women.
