What I'm wondering is why they would consider birth control, "preventive health"? Is pregnancy a Health risk?

Rep. John Dingell (D-MI): ".....it takes a lot of hard work and preparation to create a system that will “control the people.” "

This appears to be nothing more than a "end run around" for funding Planned Parenthood

Insurers must cover birth control with no copays

WASHINGTON (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.

The new requirements will take effect Jan. 1, 2013, in most cases. Tens of millions of women are expected to gain coverage initially, and that number is likely to grow with time. At first, some plans may be exempt due to a complex provision of the health care law known as the "grandfather" clause. But those even plans could face pressure from their members to include the new benefit.

for once I disagree.. I think free birth control pills is not enough..

I would go as far as to say we need to make darn sure everyone who is not old enough, mature enough, or can't afford to take care of a child is required to take birth control pills..

and if the parents object then let them pay for the "welfare" of their children

there are far to many teen pregnancies today.. and way to many single moms on welfare..

paying for pills is cheaper.. and better for our society.
