The Amish are exempt because they rely on a community ethic that prohibits government intervention. Their communities pay for the costs of their health care.
If The Amish Are Exempt From Obamacare Tax, Why Isn't My Religion?

Do you expect people to stop in the heat of the moment and go find free condoms if they can not afford them. For the record condoms are not cheap. About $1 and you have to buy at least 3 at convenient stores...that adds up quickly. Easily over a month's of rent per year for a sexually active male.
Reality is a lot different than an idealist's vision of this world.
Sex is primal. Poverty brings out people's primal urges.

Why should birth control be covered by health insurance unless it is for a medical reason? Recreational sex is an enjoyable pass-time, but not a medical condition. A responsible individual should pay for their own birth control and not expect it to be paid through wealth redistribution. The pill was only about $9 at Walmart last time I checked and condoms are free if you look around hard enough.

I am all for birth control, but seriously grow up and get over it.
Buy your own birth control or be responsible for the sex you have.
Whatever happened to personal responsibility?
