Hormonal birth control has many off label uses.

It's used to regulate hornones to regulate unruly menstrual cycles.

It's used to regulate hormones that exacerbate a painful condition called endometriosis.

It's used to help shrink, and prevent ovarian cysts.

It's used to regulate hormones that cause pre menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD, which is like PMS on steroids).

It's used to lessen a very heavy flow/very painful periods.

It has a lot more uses than preventing pregnancy.

If we aren't going to cover hormonal birth control in health insurance plans, then we need to stop covering drugs like cialis and Viagra. If we have to pay full price for our gender specific medication, they can pay the full cost of theirs.

Just saying.

it should be included because it can be used to avoid pregnancy also...
after birth, women are generally anemic for about a year...
if a women become pregnant during that time, she is more likely to have a baby that is low weight, or is born premature, or has developmental delays.

there are real medical reasons why women shouldn't get pregnant at certain points in their life, just as there are real reasons why it's not really advisable to have alot of pregnancies during your lifetime.

are there any real medical justification for viagra??

Male pill needs release far faster than they are saying it will take.

Then, we can ensure that the population will drop like a stone.

I have a feeling women will be screaming to the heavens since the "choice" will be gone.

Roe did not make it legal. What Roe did was more or less institute a "don't ask don't tell" style policy where abortion was concenred, but even then, the court recognized that the state has an interest in protecting the unborn along with the woman's life and that these interests get stronger as the pregnancy progresses.

Most leftists overlook this in their drive to push for abortion anywhere at any time on demand.
It's not looking like it's just going to stop at abolishing Roe v Wade. The views of some of the people Trump may appoint to certain positions is what troubles me.


Do you honestly believe the lives of Americans are great and have been made awesome by abortion on demand ??

Seems society is dumber and even more easily duped than before.

It can be used to treat pulmonary hypertension.

I agree that pregnancy is hard on a person, especially closely spaced, back to back pregnancies.

hmmm....

1960--- the first oral contraceptive was approved by the FDA.
1965-- the Supreme Court decided that married couples have the right to use birth control. unmarried women were still denied birth control in 26 states.

1972- supreme court legalized birth control for all citizens, regardless of marital status.

1973-- roe/wade.

www.ourbodiesourselves.org...

I was born before 1960, and I had alot of friends that had 5 or 6 siblings. my mom had 6 kids. and yes, I think life today is much better today than it was when families were trying to cope with that many kids!

Women have control over their body. They can control themselves to not have sex if they don't want to get pregnant. What am I missing?

Back alley abortions. Man, you progressives are really starting to sound like the liberal version of a Glenn Beck.


What do you think will happen if the GOP enacts the constitutional amendment they're promising, and abortion becomes illegal? Do you think abortion will just go away?

How is not wanted to go back to 1950 "progressive"?



How about personal responsibility? Man you guys LOVE to pass that off on anyone but the one responsible.

Exactly. Abortions as a form of birth control? Jesus H Christ. And the tax payers foot the bill. Windword just made me go prolife with that horrible argument. I WAS prochoice. Now, why bother. We're just going to be fed more hyperbole and doom porn.

Actually, the primary action of hormonal birth control is to prevent ovulation. That means no egg is released from the ovary.

Prevention of ovulation is successful in the vast majority of cycles, assuming correct and consistent use.

I would love to be able to pick a plan that doesn't cover birth control, pregnancy, and delivery, as my birthing years are long past.

Unfortunately, the ACA says all plans must cover birth control to be a Qualified Health Plan. Otherwise, the employer and insured would still be fined annually for not having suitable coverage.

the key words are "the vast majority of cycles"... the utilizes three different methods to prevent pregnancy.




Hormonal contraceptives (the pill, the patch, and the vaginal ring) all contain a small amount of man-made estrogen and progestin hormones. These hormones work to inhibit the body's natural cyclical hormones to prevent pregnancy. Pregnancy is prevented by a combination of factors. The hormonal contraceptive usually stops the body from ovulating. Hormonal contraceptives also change the cervical mucus to make it difficult for the sperm to go through the cervix and find an egg.Hormonal contraceptives (the pill, the patch, and the vaginal ring) all contain a small amount of man-made estrogen and progestin hormones.

Hormonal contraceptives can also prevent pregnancy by changing the lining of the womb so it's unlikely the fertilized egg will be implanted.

so, yes, there is a chance that an egg will be created and fertilized, but then not be able to implant in the womb because of the use of the pill... which if life begins at conception, like so many pro-lifers want to claim, then the pill does "murder" some.

and....
I am pretty sure that there are alot of young adults just starting out, struggling to in the funds for all the goodies needed to furnish their new nursery that would rather have an insurance policy that doesn't cover all those pesky chronic diseases that plague us older folks. guess who would save more money if they each got their wish!

"Title X is at stake"

Not true. No one is proposing overturning Title X. In fact, Title X specifically covers family planning services to reduce the number of abortions by preventing pregnancy to begin with.

Title X specifically can't be used to cover the cost of providing abortion serbices. That is it.

Can I ask, where are you getting all this misinformation, and why are you so keen to spread it around? It makes you look less credible. I'd be careful with that, if you really want to provide effective support to your position.

The GOP has promised to enact a constitutional amendment giving rights to a fertilized egg, above and beyond the autonomy of a woman, making abortion federally illegal and would criminalize the IUD, The Pill, Plan B, etc., and making Roe V Wade irrelevant.

Those are facts. Don't stick your head in the sand, dear. Back alley abortions are returning.



No, those are not facts. You saying it a million times won't make it any more true.

Overturning RvW will not make abortion a federal crime. That is completely and ridiculously untrue. It would mean each state could make their own laws with respect to abortion.

Applying the protections of the 14th Amendment to unborn children would not criminalize all forms of contraception.

The article you linked does state that Title X is at stake, but is also factually incorrect.

But at least now I see where the talking points are coming from. Thank you for that!

Lol, true! I was in that boat myself once upon a time. But was back in the day before the Federal Government told me I would pay a fine for not carrying coverage, and what the coverage must cover.

Thank you for the link!

I read the entire thing. Not one word about making birth control illegal. Not even anything about making birth control harder to get. Just the party platform on abortion.

So it is you that is stating birth control and abortion are one and the same. Not the GOP.

Why should your work pay for your birth control?

Insurance should pay for it, ergo if your company pays for insurance then it pays for contraception. Why is this tough? Do you think women, who are now possibly facing the overturn of Roe Vs Wade should have less access to unwanted pregnancies? Damn, why are Republicans this stupid?
