Gov't advisers: No copays for contraceptives
AP/Yahoo ^ | 7/19/11

Posted on 07/19/2011 3:09:31 PM PDT by markomalley

WASHINGTON – Millions of women stand to gain free access to a broad menu of birth control methods, thanks to a recommendation issued Tuesday by health experts advising the government.

An Institute of Medicine panel recommended that the government require health insurance companies to cover birth control for women as preventive care, without copayments. Contraception — along with such care as diabetes tests during pregnancy and screening for the virus that causes cervical cancer — was one of eight recommended preventive services for women.

"Unintended pregnancies carry health consequences for the mother — psychological, emotional and physical — and also consequences for the newborn," said Dr. Linda Rosenstock, panel chairwoman and dean of public health at the University of California, Los Angeles. "The overwhelming evidence was strongly supportive of the health benefit" of contraception.

A half century after the introduction of the birth control pill, the panel's recommendations may help to usher in another revolution. Medical experts say easier access could start a shift to more reliable forms of long-acting birth control, such as implants or IUDs, which are gaining acceptance in other economically developed countries.

So, in other words, these advisers really want us to commit auto-genocide.

I wonder when they will suggest putting hormones in the water to restrict fertilization? Oh, never mind.

The evil agenda of population reduction is gaining speed, and taxpayers will be forced to fund it. Note that the aim is also to have long term contraception "accepted" by poor countries - IUDs which are extremely dangerous and can render women permanently infertile, or even kill them - and implants, which although I have not read about them, don't seem as though they are without risks. IUDs are also abortifacients. What people should be wondering is WHY do these globalists hate human beings? Why do they want to eradicate so much of the population? Speed the exit of the elderly and infirm, kill the ones about to get born, and lock the door to conception. Anyone who hates Life hates the Author of Life. There is no doubt about it.

Contraceptives do NOT prevent venereal diseases. There's no preventive care in contraceptives.

Haven't you heard? Pregnancy is a disease. It can either be prevented...or it can be corrected. (if I need to say it, /sarc)

Now that you got your two minutes hate at homosexuals over with, why don’t you read the list of items for “no copays” and other “free” services for whoring, irresponsible women that YOU will pay for under Obamacare!

You know, this might a government program I could support..

Think for a moment just who’s “on the government dole”. Do we really want “them” to reproduce prolifically ?

Middle classes tend to mangage their family size according to their economic means, i.e. their economic ability to give their kids a good start in life. >PS

Because a population that reaches critical mass will have more power than the world government. It's easier to control a population of 500 million than it is 10 billion.
When a population reaches or surpasses critical mass, THEY become the masters and the governments once again become the public servants. Those in power are trying to stop the numbers from getting high enough to do that. They like being the masters.

not necessarily hatred for homosexuals, rather I was pointing out the injustices they get from the government they overwhelmingly vote for.

I wish gays or nuns or whoever could opt out of paying for birth-control for other people.

The thing is that those on the dole could have always gotten contraception of some kind if they really wanted it. There are low and no cost programs widely available.

Do they care about actual health? Oral artificial hormones are not healthy for women and girls. I realize sometimes they are useful for some people, but this is NOT for health for anyone, and since woman can get pregnant while taking them, especially if they mess up, these hormones are not good for babies either.

This is a stupid thing to push.

No Copay for Copulation. No personal responsibility for your actions in terms of paying for it.

Again the Obama govt screws the American taxpayer and we pay for it, and no vasoline.

Who says that doctors aren’t in the Obama pocket?

Soon, we’ll have in-fertile prostitutes provided by Obamacare’s all-inclusive sex act coverage. (They may all be Helen Thomas look-alikes, but Hell, they’re paid for by “the government”)

Overview of Leviticus 20:13:

This is almost identical to Leviticus 18:22. In transliterated Hebrew, the verse is written: “V’ish asher yishkav et zachar mishk’vei ishah to’evah asu shneihem mot yumatu d’meihem bam.” However, it adds a compulsory death penalty to the participants. In various translation the passage has been translated:

* ASV: (American Standard Version, 1901) “And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
* Darby: (J.N. Darby Translation, 1890): “And if a man lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall certainly be put to death; their blood is upon them.”
* ESV: (English Standard Version): “If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”
* HNV: (Hebrew Names Version): “If a man lies with a male, as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
* KJV: (King James Version): “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”
* LB: (Living Bible): “The penalty for homosexual acts is death to both parties. They have brought it upon themselves.”
* NASB: (New American Standard Bible): “’If {there is} a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them. “
* Net Bible: “If a man has sexual intercourse with a male as one has sexual intercourse with a woman, the two of them have committed an abomination. They must be put to death; their blood guilt is on themselves.” 1
* NIV: (New International Version) “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”
* NKJV: (New King James Version) “If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”
* NLT: (New Living Translation): “The penalty for homosexual acts is death to both parties. They have committed a detestable act, and are guilty of a capital offense.”
* RSV: (Revised Standard Version): “If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death; their blood is upon them.”
* Webster: (Noah Webster Version, 1833): “If a man also shall lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.”
* Young: (Robert Young Literal Translation, 1898) “And a man who lieth with a male as one lieth with a woman; abomination both of them have done; they are certainly put to death; their blood [is] on them.”

Death is sometimes required by the Hebrew Scriptures as the punishment for ritual transgressions. These included the worshiping of other Gods, gathering sticks on the Sabbath (Numbers 15:32-36), improper eating of ritual offerings (Numbers 18:32), ineligible persons acting as priests (Num 3:10).

Over the last few centuries, most Christians and Jews have rejected Leviticus 20:13. They no longer call on the death penalty for homosexuals. Only Christian Reconstructionists and a few Christian hate groups wish to revert to mass executions of gays and lesbians today.

Absolutely, that’s one big reason. Too many “other” people, harder to control the teeming masses.

This is the decade during which they intend to capture the minds of a whole generation of school children. The agenda is everywhere--school, television, church, billboards, movies, radio, the internet, et al. It is being hammered into every mind and forced down every throat in their mad rush to control you and destroy everything you hold dear.

All evil boils down to that, really. Just some is more obvious than others.

In our own hearts we can look at all flaws as due to some taint of rebellion, even just the simple wanting My will instead of His will - overcome by prayer of “Your will, not mine, be done”.
