Thanks, Obamacare For Free Preventative Health Care! [Video]

The battle for reproductive rights is a long slog, but today we get to celebrate a significant victory. Now, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, millions of women and their families will no longer be discriminated against in health care services.

So thanks, Obamacare! This amounts to real savings for women everywhere.

There is NO SUCH THING as Obamacare. Stop catering an obliging to the repugnicans by using this derogatory word. It needs to be called by its name, THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. And the word is PREVENTIVE, not preventative.

After you read this tell me you love Obama Care: My health Ins premiums in 2011 were $812 per month with Blue Cross just a few days ago I received a refund as a result of Obama Care totaling 58 cents. I was so excited I went out looking for a fun way to spend it, well I am still looking. So Obama and the rest of the Idiots that supported this nonsense in DC can shove this plan up their ASSES!

Sandy E....just be happy that you, as a woman, now have access to contraceptives at low or no cost, so you will (most likely) never know the terror of an unwanted pregnancy.

Or do you not care about this? Or....possibly you care about yourself but you don't care about women with little or no money to prevent unwanted pregnancies?

Could you POSSIBLY be so selfish that you would restrict access to population control, based on economic resources available to women?

Could you REALLY be that selfish?

Just a bit more, then I'm finished having my say in this. Today I am happy. Today I know my osteoporosis won't get worse in the coming year.

Yes, I know the cost for things like this and birth control will be passed on from the insurance companies, to those of us who pay for insurance. But, if it means I can live another 10 years and still be able to get around, and maybe even cook a meal for myself and my husband, I think it's worth it.

The birth control free has been long overdue. With far too many mouths in the world to feed everyone, it *must* be there. I've felt that way for over 40 years. I also feel that any means we women choose for our 'periods' should also be covered free, or at the very least, able to be fully deducted come tax time.

Now if we can keep President Obama from being ousted by the likes of Romney (who would repeal immediately all the health advances made by Obama), then we can rest assured that at least for another 4 years we'll have OUR care covered too. Not just rich, not just the men.
