Tell your employees that your insurance doesn't include Birth Control before you hire them so they can make the choice of whether or not to work for you.
The employer is just required to pay the provider whatever they agree on paying. Whether that money is then spent on Birth Control or Broken Legs isn't the business of the person paying the provider. The Provider runs it's business and spends it's money however they choose to spend it. That's just how insurance works. Insurance companies spend the money people pay them in whatever way they choose. Because once collected, that money is there's to spend. Like car insurance. I pay some company and once that money hits their account, it's their money now, not mine. Maybe I don't think my money should pay for the guy down the road who crashed his car, but if that's where they insurance company uses it I have no control over that. Just like when I crash my car they'll pay me with other peoples money. That's just how it works.
You don't have to get insurance through your employer if you don't want to then. They can't make you use the insurance they provide.

It's because "liberals" do not believe in the concept of unborn child, while at the same time not knowing with any exactitude when a clump of cells becomes a human being.
I think it has more to do with allowing others to choose for themselves on such a personal matter as this rather than forcing everyone to comply with some moral or religious rule.
Liberals I'm sure have many concepts of what and when an unborn child is a child and not a clump of cells. But it's because of the complexity of the argument that they choose "Pro Choice". That way everyone is allowed to do what they feel is best.
You know, Freedom of Choice to do what you think is best. You should support that idea too ya know. You don't like others making your choices for you either when it comes to some issues. This way you can choose to have have babies while others choose not to. Fair is fair.

We know that clump of cells has to develop enough to have the necessary neurological functioning since it's the brain producing our consciousness. Exact? We are getting there. Our knowledge in neuroscience is not so undeveloped that the guess of a religious person as to when the fetus becomes a 'human being' would be equal to that of our scientific knowledge.
