Birth Control: On My Dime

For the love of pete, really?

Insurers must cover birth control with no copays

(Thanks but no thanks to OSV Daily Take Blog )

“(AP) Health insurance plans must cover birth control as preventive care for women, with no copays, the Obama administration said Monday in a decision with far-reaching implications for health care as well as social mores.

“The requirement is part of a broad expansion of coverage for women’s preventive care under President Barack Obama’s health care law.  Also to be covered without copays are breast pumps for nursing mothers, an annual “well-woman” physical, screening for the virus that causes cervical cancer and for diabetes during pregnancy, counseling on domestic violence, and other services.

“These historic guidelines are based on science and existing medical literature and will help ensure women get the preventive health benefits they need,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. . .

“Preventing unwanted pregnancies is only one goal of the new requirement. Contraception can help make a woman’s next pregnancy healthier by spacing births far enough apart, generally 18 months to two years.  Research links closely spaced births to a risk of such problems as prematurity, low birth weight, even autism. Research has shown that even modest copays for medical care can discourage use.”

So the witch known as Sebelius, faux Catholyc and former governor of Kansas, sees unwanted children as a disease, an affliction, a blight on our society.  Oh, wait . . . She means unwanted unborn children!

No, it’s not far to when some  government bureaucrat (faux Catholyc or not) decides to use my tax dollars to murder anyone causing some discomfort to one of the chosen few ‘flavor of the day’ elites.  On my dime!!

Yes, she needs our prayers; no, they don’t appear to be working yet.  Cowboy Papist suspects Ms. Sebelius, mutant offspring of Sauron of Mordor, may have one of Dante‘s levels of Hell in her future.  Don’t wish to pass judgement on her, but wouldn’t mind seeing someone give her a swift exit from government.
