All I can say, Trump's Government must provide the bith control then, no one can force anyone to do or have something they don't want, it should come down to family planning. between the mand and the woman, myself and mywife choose not to found a family that's our right in law,

You cannot be against abortion and against birth control. It's like pressing the gas pedal and the brake pedal of a car at the same time.

Good, women are perfectly capable of contributing to the cost of their birth control, they don't need ignorant politicians treating them like helpless little children.

To good old, misogynistic Donn.....some women may, in fact, be able to contribute to the cost of their contraceptives AND OTHERS MAY NOT! Some men may be able to buy their own Viagra..AND OTHERS MAY NOT! The same thing is true of insulin, anti-antacids, etc. Here's the deal (PLEASE PAY ATTENTION)....these contraceptives are legal medications. Tell me why they've been singled out for exclusion! Oh...unless, just perhaps, it's trumplestiltskin sucking the thumbs of the religious ''right," who want to control women and keep them pregnant.

Maybe you pam should tell everyone why women's birth control is singled out for no co-pay. Everything should have co-pay, but somehow women are treated like helpless little twits who can't manage even to contribute a few dollars for their own health care. The religious right, left or in between have no interest in keeping women pregnant but that's a popular liberal lie apparently swallowed and spewed wholesale by some ignoramouses . Left wingers seem to think the more people sucking at the government teat, the better. Those who can't afford it already are subsidized to the hilt, those who can afford it should be paying for it, no matter what it is.

Trump troll alert. Someone who is perfectly fine with, and not complaining about the government paying for erectile dysfunction medication is cheering that poor women will be refused the RIGHT to determine when she gets pregnant. He is definitely an ignorant, self-absorbed, compassionless trump troll who doesn't deserve to be fed (or named).

To trumplestiltskin's troll....a fine example for subsidized contraception is the State of Colorado, which has saved MILLIONS by providing free long-term contraceptives. Abortion rates dropped by 42%...unintended pregnancies (and resulting costs for social services) have dropped...life for women is better--a LOT better. Of course, I realize that last statement might repel you, but it's a wonderful thing for people with a heart and a brain.
