What a non-issue. So why am I finally making a post about this? Just came across this video at Weasel Zippers:
Now, over the past few weeks, the argument is birth control, contraception, needs to be covered by insurance. In fact the government will make it illegal for insurance not to cover it. At first it was a religious issue because it goes against the Catholic faith. Now it is a women's health issue which is construed as women's rights.
One of the arguments was it is soooo expensive or extremely hard to get. It may be easy enough to buy Uranium, but contraceptives are really hard to procure, I think, or we've been told. ( Can I get the government to buy Uranium for me? )
Here is an in depth look into buying contraception:
What is wrong?
- It is unconstitutional, illegal, for the government to tell people to buy something.
- It is unconstitutional, illegal, for the government to tell a company what it must buy.
- Making people buy insurance that must buy items for another person is forcing person A to buy something for person B.
Forget all the health issues. Your rights are being violated in favor of someone else's rights.
