Why some Philly women are clamoring for contraception before Inauguration Day

Why some Philly women are clamoring for contraception before Inauguration Day by Sarah Horvath, M.D. Twitter icon @phillyhealthsci

“As long as it’s before the inauguration.”

“Anytime before the new Congress takes over.”

“Before Obama leaves office…”

Women are frantically calling our Philadelphia contraceptive clinic to get their IUDs, implants and sterilizations before Jan. 20. It used to be that women scheduled contraception around life events – weddings, desired number of children, education and career goals. Now they are scheduling appointments around the congressional calendar. They fear that a new administration will take away their contraceptive coverage. And for good reason.

Contraception is used by 99 percent of women in the U.S. at some point in their reproductive lives, regardless of race, religion or state of residence. Use of contraception allowed women to participate more fully in the workforce and to plan their families. Since the passage of the contraceptive mandate in 2011 as an essential health benefit in the Affordable Care Act (the ACA or “Obamacare”), women have had the opportunity to choose the type of birth control that was best for them without having to consider cost. However, the Republican-controlled Congress has made the repeal of the ACA a priority during the next few weeks. While that law may be phased out over a period of years, the contraceptive mandate risks being repealed much sooner – and that is bad for everyone.

... I mean yes it’s not consistent with Christian morality, but again we’re not ordering anybody to be Christians, either. They almost seem to be acting like they need a dispensation from Congress, not just for the silly things to be in drugstores.

They’re afraid that Christians will force them to be Christians too at gunpoint, or something like that.

Christians won’t. However they will insist that those who want this, do it on their own dime.

If car insurance was like health insurance, it would cover oil changes and brake jobs.

Sheesh.

With all due respect, I think an exception must be made for these Philly Women. And women like them.

They should be allowed free sterilizations from now on. Is voluntary eugenicide a bad thing?

More proof that fake news does influence people. Dems and MSM need to stop terrifying their idiots with their fake news (and lies) about what republicans are going to do.

as an essential health benefit in the Affordable Care Act (. . . or “Obamacare”), women have had the opportunity to choose the type of birth control that was best for them without having to consider cost. However, the Republican-controlled Congress has made the repeal of the ACA a priority during the next few weeks. While that law may be phased out over a period of years, the contraceptive mandate risks being repealed much sooner – and that is bad for everyone.

So, taxpayer funded abortions and sterilization were mandated by an amendment to Obamacare. Women can choose to abort or sterilize any way they want, no matter how expensive, and we get to pay for it. Phasing out that taxpayer freebie is "bad for everyone," evidently including tax payers and murdered babies.

So the writer of this piece of cr*p shifts from "some women" to "everyone" without apparently noticing the difference. I don't think aborted babies or decent taxpayers appreciate this particular Obamagift.

Let the one with no sin cast the first stone.

We shouldn’t be giving any moral support to the Margaret Sanger eugenicist roots of Planned Parenthood, who hoped to sweet talk undesirables into just this kind of thing, because she believed that genetics froze people into their fate. That tends to be untrue. The kind of society with which people interact as they grow up tends to have the biggest impact. That’s what makes ghetto, ghetto.

I guess keeping their knees together with men who are not their husbands is just too tough.

"Because you couldn’t get contraceptives before Obama."

They boycotted Hobby Lobby because they only allowed for about six methods of contraceptive devices/pills in their medical plan.

I’m still trying to figure out how contraceptives got to be an issue. And why is it a women’s issue?? Let “who’s your daddy” pay for it.

Good grief. What did women do about contraception back when insurance didn’t cover it? Maybe a sterilization would strain someone’s budget, so they need to buy what they can afford. I’m sure most of them can afford a box of condoms. Keep them in the nightstand, and throw a few in the purse in case the mood strikes when they are away from home. If their paramours refuse to use them, then no tickee, no washee.

I need a new car. I would like a Mercedes-Benz. I can’t afford a Mercedes-Benz, so I think there should be a government program that will pay for it for me so I won’t have to settle for a low-end Chevy or something.

I thought they were planning to have sex like it was the end of the world. But no, they just are afraid they won’t be able to get freebies from Trump.

They are loathe to pay the $20-30 a month, so the rest of us should front it for them so they can behave as they wish. Funny, though how the ones who whine most about birth control and abortion tend to be those who are least likely to need it. (cue Trigglypuff)

Contraception costs far less than most monthly cell phone bills, but I bet 98% of these women who are worried about free contraceptives have cell phones. Or: don’t go to that crappy Hollywood movie ($20-40 for ticket, drink, and popcorn), and pay for your own contraceptives.

Ghost abortions: the untold cost of abortions since Roe v. Wade. The human cost of abortion is undeniable. Pro-Life advocates often note the number of preborn babies killed since the 1973 legalization of abortion. The sum is a staggering 58 million, and the number continues to grow.

AND Not ONE MAN had a say in it heh heh The suffragettes and Margaret Sanger would be Proud of You,

1 MAO ZEDONG. China (1949-76) Regime Communist Victims 60 million. China’s so-called ‘Great Helmsman’ was in fact the greatest mass murderer in history. ...
2 JOSEPH STALIN. Soviet Union (1929-53) Regime Communist Victims 40 million. ...
3 ADOLF HITLER. Germany (1933-45) Regime Nazi dictatorship Victims 30 million.

Reminds me of how urgently I felt right after the 2012 election to go out and buy an AR-15 at a fairly high price because I believed the signals of the time saying it could be my last chance to own one. I don’t regret doing so for one second. The the ammo shortages.

I did not read the article, so I have no idea why snowflakes sense the pill might be in short supply, but I do appreciate the karma of it all.
