actually pregnancy isn't a medical condition...it's a developmental stage of life....the flu is a medical condition, gout is a medical condition, the hiv is a medical condition....
again, by the morning after, it's reasonable to suppose that a sperm may have drilled into an egg, and thus, the cycle begins....and i suppose that's what they have a problem with.. -shrug-
Every day, approximately 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth.
99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries.
Maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities.
Young adolescents face a higher risk of complications and death as a result of pregnancy than older women.
Skilled care before, during and after childbirth can save the lives of women and newborn babies.
Between 1990 and 2013, maternal mortality worldwide dropped by almost 50%.

I have no problem paying for my own viagra. Why should anyone else pay for my hard-on?
I would (and did not!) ever get a vasectomy. Period. No one with a knife is getting close to my gonads. Thats not a religious choice...it's a personal one involving me and my nuts.

Here is the effing path. Jesus!
The woman goes to the doctor (just as before). The woman tells the doc she needs "the pill" (whatever that is) (JUST AS BEFORE). The doctor writes a prescription (JUST AS EFFING BEFORE). She takes the prescription to the drugstore and fills it. JUST AS BEFORE!!!!!!
That!!! is the freaking pathway to contraceptives. Get it? Jeez man...wtf?
Here's snippet from the Supreme Court ruling. They are musing over ways to provide disenfranchised women access to the contraception that they are UNABLE TO GET!
The Government could, e.g., assume the cost of providing the four contraceptives to women unable to obtain coverage due to their employers’ religious objections
You're wrong. Admit it and chill out, Dude!
