To Misogynists, No Co-Pay Birth Control a Terrorist Act
August 1st marked the phase-in of Affordable Care Act mandates that women’s preventive services be offered in all insurance products without co-pay. This includes FDA-approved birth control. You would think the sky had fallen to hear the Republican hand-wringing.

When will the ridiculous excuses for human that imagine they are protecting the human enterprise by oppressing women get off their holier-than-thou horse? Women take birth control for themselves AND their men. Duh! It turns out this whole being able to plan your family thing is really good for families.
