Feminists appear to be getting their wish. Obamacare isn’t even fully implemented yet, and still an increasing amount of privately-insured women are obtaining oral contraceptive pills for $0 out of pocket.
A decision is expected in June.
In a major blow to emergency contraception proponents, the European equivalent of Plan B - known as the "morning after pill" - now includes a warning that the contraceptive is not effective for women over 165 pounds and does not work at all for women over 176 pounds. The implications are staggering: according to the Centers for Disease Control, the average weight of an American woman over 20 is 166.2 pounds.
Drug store employees apparently have no problem selling the Plan B pill to a man who admits he wants to give it secretly to a 15-year-old girl.
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius refuses to remark on whether Americans will be forced to pay for abortions under Obamacare.
These celebrities can't wait to urge their fans to sign up for Obamacare.
Today, nations around the world will be celebrating a future in which 'all pregnancies are wanted' and contraception is all-accessible.
Not since the late-19th-century juxtaposition of the Wild West with the Victorian East has popular morality been so unbridled and yet so uptight.
Many millions of Catholics around the world were joyous with the naming of a new pope -- a holy man from the Third World no less. Even in choosing his name, Pope Francis is emphasizing a devotion to the poor, and humility in his clothing and manners.
My favorite talk show host is John Batchelor, whose often expressed, playful worry is that he isn't being cynical enough. The wisest (or is it the most cynical?) among us recognize that a degree of caution is always advisable when dealing with fellow human beings, and that the world has never lacked for frauds, liars, and hypocrites.
The Obama administration and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have announced yet another proposal to “accommodate” religious freedom under the HHS contraception mandate. If nothing else, this appears to be a concession that last year’s much-touted “accommodation” was insufficient.
More than a century and a half ago, when early suffragettes fought to win the vote, they campaigned for equality as a source of independence and dignity, a means for a woman to stand equally with a man. The vote would uphold a woman's capacity to be fully human under the law, and from the law the culture would change. The early feminists assumed a moral superiority over men, which is why so many were active in the temperance movement.
Chris Matthews attacks Romney ads as 'absurd,' courting 'uninformed voters.'
Right after the second debate, Mitt Romney has finally decided to run an abortion ad: "Those ads saying Mitt Romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme, so I looked into it," a female former Obama voter says. "Turns out, Romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. In fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest or to save a mother's life." Mitt Romney. He's our guy. He's much better than Obama, and I think he will win this race. But could he try any harder to prove he's no Ronald Reagan?
Through these two very different views on energy, that even women care about, one can view the election.
