    In Response to Arizona Republicans want to force women to reveal whether they are having sex:
    [QUOTE]PHOENIX — Women in Arizona trying to get reimbursed for birth control drugs through their employer-provided health plan could be required to prove that they are taking it for a medical reason such as acne, rather than to prevent pregnancy. A bill nearing passage in the Republican-led Legislature allows all employers, not just religious institutions, to opt out of providing contraceptive coverage when doing so would violate their religious or moral beliefs. When a female worker uses birth control pills, which can be used to treat a number of medical conditions, the bill would allow an employer who opted out to require her to reveal what she was taking it for in order to get reimbursed. http://www.cnn.com/2012/03/15/politics/arizona-contraception-controversy/index.html

    I think it is time to start treating women like men.

    Show me where a doctor will prescribe viagra just because the guy says so.

    Am I missing the sarcasm? I walked right into my doctor's office and asked for a viagra prescription. He took my BP and wrote out a script with 6 refills. My insurance covers it.

     This is nothing more than an a political party intrusion into a person's privacy to make political hay.

     There is two things about this foray into this birth control policies that I don't understand.

     First, the hardcore pro life vote will always be with the gops and they will always be at the ballots come election day so there is no need to rally them but this assault on a person's privacy just might get new voters to come out and vote against the gop come this fall because they don't like the idea of a political party's controlling their lives.

     Second, if birth control policies is such a huge issue in the gop's platform why didn't the gop overturn Roe v. Wade back when they had COMPLETE CONTROL of both houses and a majority of all levels of the Federal Justice system back in the early to mid 2000's ? If I was a pro lifer I would be asking myself that question. But I don't think they would like the answer they would come to the conclusion to that they were being used by a political party who only paid lip service to their concerns to get elected.

    [QUOTE]The Republicans war on family planning has reached ridiculous levels....
    Posted by Kirk6[/QUOTE]

    The Democrats throw out some crazy idea, like free contraception for all, the Republicans criticize that obvious crazy idea, and the Republicans are at fault?

    We see this issue after issue, no honest discussion from the left.  the left pushes the envelope, rightly or wrongly, and then blames the right.

    Abortion
    contraception
    Gay marriage
    DADT

    And so on...

    The left should be able to discuss WHY these things are such good ideas, and take some criticism without just defaulting to the "war on <blank /> statements that always follow.

    1) "Birth control policies" at issue here have nothing to do with abortion...Federal government subsidy to pay 100% of birth control pills has nothing to do with Roe v Wade.

    2) Roe v Wade is a Supreme Court decision. The only method to overturn the decision is a federal Constitutional amendment. Other than the court itself reversing this decision.

    Re: Arizona Republicans want to force women to reveal whether they are having sex

    Kirk's headline is a brazen lie.

    The Arizona law's purpose is to protect religious liberty, by not forcing religious institutions or employers with moral objections to pay for birth control pills . The requirement is only to state why one might need the birth control pills for a medical reason, in order for the employer  to pay for the pills.
     It does not require a woman to say whether she is having sex.

    If a woman really is concerned about privacy, she should pay for the pills herself.
     ObamaCare and government intrusion between doctors and patients in health care is the greatest threat to individual privacy and autonomy. To the government, your health records are their property.

    viagra is for a medical condition, not for recreation.  The pill is ALWAYS for recreation when it comes to sex.

    There are probably some liberal doctors that don't do diligence when men are requiring viagra, but in the main, I think they do more than just whip out the prescription pad, unless they are democrats, of course.

    [QUOTE]Oh dear lord.  Viagra ENCOURAGEOUS pro-creation.  The Pill, prevents it. Apples and fing Aircraft Carriers! But now we are at, "which pill?". The "morning after pill" does not prevent, it ends.  Roe doesn't cover that. And I AGREE with Roe! If said Aircraft Carrier hits a bobbing apple, it doesn't care.

    Viagra fixes a medical condition, the pill prevents pregancy, not medical condition present.

    world-o-difference.
