That still doesn't explain why you and the other radical feminists are demanding that the government (aka, everyone else) has to pay for all their sexual choices. If you believe that women should not seek approval from a man for their actions, why are you demanding that the men pay the money required for those actions? How does relying on others for payment cause those women to be free?
"me and other radical feminists" Funny, that.. VERY funny!
And no, I don't demand that the government "pay for all their sexual choices". I DO say that all INSURANCE should fully cover health issues and that reproductive health is most definitely a health issue for women.
How you twist that into a claim that I demand free payment should be interesting.. but then, I rarely see you explain your thinking. You seem to prefer to toss out blurbs like that as if they were true.
Insurance companies are forced to pay for it without charging a co-pay and without charging women higher premiums, which really means everyone has to pay a higher premium in order to cover the costs.
Correction. Insurance companies are not allowed to single out this particular medication, because when they did so in the past, it was found to be discriminatory. There was no similar type medication denied to men, it was specific to women and therefore denial was discriminatio against women. Or, to paraphrase, being a woman is not a "pre-existing condition". Also, that coverage stops at age 45 or so. (40 in some cases), regardless of whether the woman still needs the medication or not. So, just when a woman is most at risk for having a child with serious birth defects, they cannot get birth control unless they pay for it fully themselvs.
Per the "no copay" bit.. not at all sure about that. Do you have evidence?

And who decides what is an "actual medical issue"? According to you, not her doctor. Essentially, you are claiming, again, that you have better medical knowledge than her doctor.
