But if you regulate insurers, they will fight back.
I see no evidence of that. They seem to have swallowed this sophistry without a whimper. The Obamacare law put their air supply and their testicles both in the hands of Kathleen Sebelius. Maybe when SCOTUS tells them they aren't getting 40 million new customers at gunpoint they will start fighting back.
while supposedly not implying a moral choice of one health-care service over another
This is what I've been saying all along: everyone who is paying (and is going to pay more) for actual medical treatments ought to be infuriated that they'll be charged for anti-health drugs and surgery.

(Maybe it IS about contraception. Read "Planned Parenthood v. Casey" decision, 1992.)
In nearly every article I read about this subject, they insist on called Fluke a “Law school student”. Makes me doubt anything else the author says...............

Sandra Fluke is not necessarily sex-seeking just because she wants her birth control paid for by insurance.
Oh? What if "medically necessary" BC was already covered with doctor prescription... what does that leave you?

This is the really creepy part of what this doctor says: “At a time when we have an epidemic of human papillomavirus, with the majority of young people turning HPV positive within five years of becoming sexually active,”

The whole idea of insurance is to have many payers but few users.
Whenever they invent a new "right", there will be more users and thus more expensive for everyone.
Eventually it is not insurance anymore.

The Doctor is incorrect about the best form of birth control for single People.
‘HPV is spread through sexual contact, meaning no penetration is needed to contract the virus. Even if condoms are worn during intercourse and worn correctly, there is no guarantee of 100 percent protection against HPV. This is due to a condom covering only the penis, leaving the rest of the genitals uncovered. During intercourse, these unprotected areas can come in contact with the vagina.’
The doctor should ALWAYS tell his patients that the best form of birth control is to abstain from sex, particularly casual sex with multiple partners. Women are always more susceptible to the consequences of sex than are men.
If you really want to participate in abstinence, get married and have children!
