AP ^ | June 30, 2014

Posted on 06/30/2014 10:05:44 AM PDT by don-o

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says women's health will be jeopardized by a Supreme Court's decision that allows corporations with religious objections to opt out of a requirement that they cover contraceptives.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday that women should make personal health decisions for themselves.

FUBO.

And the horse you rode in on.

Repeat as necessary, you ignorant b*tthole.

No one with above room temp IQ even thinks about listening to your childish undeducated prattle any more.

STFU, go away, and quit consuming value O2 which could be used gainfully by sentient life forms.

Of course, no one’s stopping women from making their own choices. They can pay the bill themselves, get the sperm donor to pay, or better yet, keep their legs closed.

>> women should make personal health decisions for themselves.

And they should also make decisions for how a third party should spend their money, right?

No one is telling these ninnies that they can’t make their own decisions. IMO birth control is not a health issue, to use it or not is personal choice. They need to pay for their own pills. Good grief.

If this decision risks women’s health, then the HHS regulations do, too, because the regulations provide exemptions to non-profit companies as well as to anybody covered by a “grandfathered” plan.

Actually, they are correct. Women SHOULD make the decision themselves. Including the decision whether or not it’s worth their money. . .

Yes, and with their own money too.

Women are free to make their own decisions up to the point where their decisions conflict with the freedom of choice of the people that are paying the bill.

It is the same rationale where my right to swing my arm ends where the other person's nose begins.

Oh, they’re not shy about coming right out and saying that much. Because they worship “Gaia”. Yet they have the nerve to point fingers at Christians.

LOL that’s not what the court said or did.

The court only [and by a 5-4 !] allowed corporations with religious objections to offer 16 contraceptive methods instead of 18.

Why is the left so upset?

Not including today's losses for Obamacare & Non-Union dues:

Supreme Court Rules Unanimously Against Obama for 12th and 13th Time Since 2012

Obama has been overturned in more than 2/3rd the cases before the US Supreme Court.

What a bunch of drama queens. Taking abortifacients jeopardizes a baby’s health and in some case the woman’s health. When it comes to contraceptives, does obamacare cover condoms? If not, is this discrimination against men, against homosexuals?

Why is the govt inserting their noses in individuals sexual activities? Why not cover Viagra?

This is all about buying women’s votes.

I’m confused.
What is the “contraceptive” issue here?
Are they referring to Trojans, morning after pills, abortion, or all of the above?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Here’s an idea Obama....

Maybe you could use your damned pen and phone to order the FDA to make Birth Control pills OTC (over the Counter) that way the price of the birth control pills would be the same price of an aspirin and if a woman wanted to chose aspirin as a birth control method she could buy a bottle of them and put on between her knees OR she could buy a bottle of birth control pills for the SAME PRICE and take one like one normally takes an Aspirin and it would cost THE SAME!!!

But no, because that would acknowledge that Women like me actually have an actual choice over what we want to take vs. their argument that Sugar Daddy government knows best....

And it would totally take away the idiot lib arguments for women that need to take it to treat other conditions like PCOS etc...

Because the Idiot Libs LOVE the FDA and the control it has over our lives and are using the FDA to keep certain drug prices high so they can use it as a leverage point in their little “class warfare struggle”.

Because if Birth Control pills were Over the Counter, NO INSURANCE POLICY UNDER OBUMMER CARE WOULD HAVE TO COVER THEM....

What happened to goverment staying out of bedrooms? Not only do the democrats want in but now tgey want you boss in there too. All the court sais was buy your own damn contaceptives. Last I checked they are cheap and plentiful. Heck, theyre even free courtesy of the tax payer at a county clinic or planned parenthood abortion mill.

and a woman cannot decide not to buy insurance or to buy insurance without contraceptive and abortion coverage? How does that square with making personal decisions for themselves?
