Allowing some bosses to override the religious beliefs and health needs of their female employees hurts women, especially those already struggling to make ends meet.

politicians just love to try to control women's bodies. if having babies were a really attractive prospect, with excellent supports for mothers and quality childcare options, women may feel more inclined to have children.

No thanks, I do not have to pay what you do in the bedroom,
I do not have to pay for someones contraception
I am not your Mommy

Ah firedup, you realize this is for INSURANCE? Insurance that is offered as part of someone's compensation when they are on a job? So unless you are the employer, how are you "paying for what people do in the bedroom?"

We are all "paying for what people do in the bedroom." If you REALLY think about it. Most people pay taxes. Taxes go to support schools. We wouldn't need schools if people didn't conceive children, now would we?

The bosses should have to worry about the meager wages they often pay , so nobody would have double or even triple jobs to survive. Women would be more healthier and that is the chief's benefit.
Women would have a healthier pregnancy with less sick days.

Noted and signed. "fired up" : what makes you think YOUR taxes pay for an employee's health insurance, unless they are a govt. worker? The employer and employees both pay for the insurance.... your taxes do not figure into the equation. What a lame argument, and I've seen that ignorance parroted several times here on this site.

Just how long are ALL women going to decide that they are intelligent enough to make their own decisions, especially concerning their own bodies?
Can you possibly imagine it the other way around ~ that women made decisions for men, especially concerning THEIR own bodies?
I think we all know the answer to that.

This whole issue is getting very tiring.
I have a feeling, and I could be wrong (Imagine that!), but I believe there is a strong probably that the conservative women who are racists, may change their minds on this issue as soon as they don't have President Obama to verbally kick around any more.
