Posted on 10/03/2012 1:14:55 PM PDT by kingattax
First lady Michelle Obama called contraception basic preventative care and invoked her daughters before talking about womens decisions about our bodies during a campaign fundraising event Tuesday.
The first lady spoke at the Westin Hotel in Seattle where, according to the White House press pool report, about 700 attended, paying between $500 and $10,000.
Insurance companies now have to cover basic preventative care things like contraception, cancer screenings at no out-of-pocket cost, Michelle Obama said, referring to the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. They wont be able to discriminate against you because you have a preexisting condition like diabetes or even asthma.
A product of the new health care law was a regulation issued by the Department of Health and Human Services that requires all employer-health insurance plans to provide free abortifacients, sterilization and contraception.
Numerous religious organizations and other employers have sued the administration over the mandate because such a regulation would violate the First Amendment guarantee to free exercise of religion.
The first lady went on to talk about her husband President Barack Obamas commitment to women.
Believe me, today, as a father, he knows what it means to want our daughters to have the same freedoms and opportunities as our sons, and that is why the first bill he signed into law was to make sure that women get equal pay for equal work, the first lady said.
And that is why my husband will always, always fight to ensure that we, as women, can make our own decisions about our bodies and our health care, she added.
These folks are the same people who define pregnancy as a disease, yet idolize celebrities who are showing a “baby bump”.
Her husband the same guy that did not want his girls punished with a baby..
But Fluck says it costs $19,000 for birth control! Must be government pricing.
So now a baby is some DISEASE that need to be PREVENTED?
These death cultists get worse and worse all the time!!!! We most certainly do NOT want ANY of them in charge of our health care, of of anything else important to us!!!!
I am waiting for Viagra to be a free entitlement. There must be some poor old gay guys that need it for their “mental health”.
This. This is Nobama's example of basic preventative care.
It’s standard if you’re a greedy skank.
He keeps it in his pants and she closes her legs
But that would require a sense of morality and we KNOW how morality is such an old fashioned idea set up by white men to keep black people from being na'chul.
“Cost-Free Contraception Is Basic Preventive Care”
How about keeping your pants on and not acting like a damn animal?
and they accuse us men of treating pregnancy like a disease...
So is asbstince and guess what? It is FREE!!!
I had two daughters.
I taught them to keep their knees together until they were ready to raise children.
I had a friend who told me he couldn’t be against abortion because he knew his daughter was pretty and might get pregnant before she was ready.
I told him he had a job to do as her father, and he needed to make sure he did it right - not pre-excuse his failure.
What has happened to the men in this country, anyway?
So is a 12-gauge in every house.

So would be castration. Is that next, Moochelle?
who ever heard of such a notion??
It is SOSOSOSOS important that people won’t spend a dime of their own money on it.
This isn’t such a bad thing, guys. We’ll be able to get free condoms, and for older guys what good is a condom if you can’t use it, so free Viagra should be available, too.
At Home exercise equipment
Deep tissue massages
And for Men... clean hookers
There ain't no free lunch and I'm tired of buying yours.
Being a leftist, by this she means, "being able to fornicate without consequences".
To liberals, unprotected sex without consequences is an entitlement.
First lady Michelle Obama called contraception basic preventative care
So the First Lady believes babies to be a disease?
As a medical professional, I can say that pregnancy is the Normal Healthy state of the uterus (she brought it up), so, they are NOT preventing illness.
Witches- all of ‘em.
Contraception PREVENTS life.
Democrats are anti-life.
Then a parachute must be basic preventative care for people who decide to jump out of an airplane. Where do I get my free parachute?
womens decisions about our bodies - is Moochell talking about what women can eat? ;)
First maybe someday honest people will call this HC legislation for what it really is: “Obama’s CommieCare
Second a much stronger case can be made for ED medication being covered than contraceptives which are not for an actual medical condition in all but the most rare instances. At least ED is a valid medical condition but who cares as all legislation seems geared to who is the most emotional.
Too bad her mother's birth control failed.
” - - - a regulation issued by the Department of Health and Human Services that requires all employer-health insurance plans to provide free abortifacients, sterilization and contraception.”
BTW, what is the difference between a dictate and a regulation?
I am so FED UP with having this CRAP disguised as equality or women’s rights or compassion or whatever the hell they want to call it, crammed down our throats.
I do not support my tax dollars being spent on your women Michelle.
Here’s a question for you, Michelle: If it’s “free choice” to have an abortion, why isn’t it free CHOICE not to have SEX unless and until a woman can PURCHASE HER OWN contraceptives??? Or split the cost with her partner? Huh? Is a woman destined to have unprotected sex? Is it because she’s a “victim” that she can’t decide to get contraceptives herself?
Honestly, this is an absurd thought process to start with, but I tell you what- it INFURIATES me that I’m now forced to pay for some irresponsible girl’s birth control pills. It is NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY.
"Two years ago, we made history together by finally passing health reform, and because we passed this law, insurance companies will now have to cover basic preventive care--
things like prenatal care, mammograms, contraception--at no extra cost."
This is why I’m Pro Choice - I believe all Dems should be aborted. Pre or post birth; doesn’t matter to me.
That’s not a man it’s a wookie.
Michelles full of crap. There are no such things as no out of pocket costs. Its in your premium.
God provided us with cost free contraception! The knowledge snd self control are too much for most I guess.
It’s like we have two presidents. /s
Don't give her any ideas. She already ready to force feed the kids what she mandates.
