Barbara Boxer: Why no Viagra complaints? By: Tal Kopan March 25, 2014 11:28 AM EDT
As the Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday about the Obamacare mandate on birth control coverage, Sen. Barbara Boxer questioned why those up in arms about the requirement have no problem with most insurance covering Viagra.
I have never heard Hobby Lobby or any other corporation, I could be wrong, or any other boss complain that Viagra is covered in many insurance plans, practically all of them, or other kinds of things, you know, for men, which I wont go into, Boxer said Tuesday on MSNBCs Jansing & Co.
The California Democrat was discussing the lawsuit before the Supreme Court Tuesday morning arguing that companies like Hobby Lobby, which brought the suit, shouldnt have to provide for employees birth control because it violates their religious beliefs.
Host Chris Jansing pressed Boxer as to whether she could compare Viagra and birth control, saying Hobby Lobby and other advocates argue that birth control is a life issue.
I have never heard them put any type of moral objection, remember, this is a moral objection, to men getting Viagra, but they have a moral objection to women getting certain types of birth control, Boxer said. Whats their next moral objection, do they then object to vaccinations? Where do you take it from here?
There has been a well-documented study by a university that gave women free birth control for several years. Abortions went down by 50 percent, Chris. So if you are for life and want to attack this issue for abortion, this is a place we could work together and reduce the number of abortions.

Her claim should be fact checked. Is Viagra covered under most health insurance policies? I think not.
Well she has to use SOMETHING to get men interested in her...even then...
“Stand up Chuck”
IS SHE STUPID?
There are, as far as I know, no religious prohibitions against the use of erectile dysfunction drugs in the religions commonly practiced in the United States.
But of course this stupid a** had to try to manipulate this into a feminist/hatemen issue.
is whatever...is ailing boxer covered by any insurance policy??
I guess ALL Demoncrats must be racist, sexist pigs. Ten to one says they're closet homophobes, too. And we know they're Jew-haters.
Ms. Boxer is trying to turn this into a gender wars issue rather than an ethical issue. She's only succeeding with people who are already on her side.
No one dies when Viagra is used.
Sen. Barbara Boxer and viagra - No experiance with either but that would have to be a miracle drug of some sorts to work for that.
There's your answer Ms. Boxer - right there.
Well you brainless bitch, they are not arguing against birth control pills which prevent conception and not against viagra which can lead to conception. They are arguing against day-after drugs that potentially kill off a fertilized egg which from any religious or true scientific point of view IS life. Any unbiased science will say that any animal cell with a full genome IS living life in the form of that animal. This includes humans. They could probably argue against birth control pills as well and have a case on religious grounds.
“Hobby Lobby is suing for the right to offer health care plans that do not cover contraception that could potentially prove lethal to a developing embryo. In fact, Hobby Lobby currently covers all but four of the FDA-approved forms of contraception”
My bad. Babs Boxer is a sexist jerk.
All those female California Hateocrats' ugly, twisted faces blend into one after a while, and the poisoned vomit that they spew all smells the same..
She’s only succeeding with people who are already on her side.
I am quickly reaching the place where I don’t think anyone’s mind has been changed on any controversial topic in quite a while.
I think our nations political preachers have been preaching exclusively to the choir.
I'll bet those prescriptions were filled on the public dime.
No one dies when Viagra is used.
That’s not what the label reads. And after four hours, ......
Truth is that Viagra shouldn’t be covered either.
Viagara is a buck a pill and up. If you can’t find a buck, you’re dead meat.
unless you’re taking nitrates.
