- there is no "scientific basis" for "defending all human life". The latter being "code" for placing limitations on a woman's right to make her own health care decisions. Does a zygote have assumed civil rights that usurp those of an adult woman? Of course not.Feb 23, 2012
- There was no debate discussing "if women should have birth control", the debate was over whether the government should provide "free" birth control, or whether the government should mandate that insurance (or companies providing insurance) must provide it for "free". No one is trying to deny women birth control. And the only side which has brought government into this birth control debate is Obama NOT the GOP.Feb 23, 2012

- She is free to take whatever BC pills she wants without any gov. intervention.
The issues being discussed were really more of a "who pays for it", not whether or not she should be allowed to take it.Feb 23, 2012
- The question is whether or not the Federal Government should mandate that employers' health insurance plans give access to contraceptives. The opponents would effectively block access to birth control for women if they had their way, based on the premise that a religion-associated employer should be exempt of the requirement. Of course, the compromise that the Obama administration put forth would require the insurance company to provide access at their expense while the religious entity basically gets to pretend that it doesn't exist.
In practice, this would have a chilling effect on women under their employ using those important services that they otherwise might choose for themselves. This, or anything less, is giving undo influence to religion in an area (Federal health care regulation) that they have no business. It's as if the church came out and said that seat belts were an affront to God's will and that they, therefore, should be able to provide their employees with seat belt-less cars in contrast to Federal law mandating their installation. An individual employee of the church might have buckled up the next time she took the church van out on the road but found herself going through the windshield instead. And that's religion's effect on driver safety!Feb 23, 2012
