I heard this yesterday on the radio and nearly drove off the road.
Whether you’re a teacher, or a small businesswoman, or a nurse, or a janitor, no woman’s health should depend on who she is or where she works or how much money she makes. Every woman should be in control of the decisions that affect her own health. Period. This basic principle is already the law in 28 states across the country.
Why limit that to women, Barack? Why not expand that to all people?
And why are you making it appear that you are about making sure that women (or even people in general) get access t basic, life-saving health care instead of crushing those opposed to birth control and abortion?
After all, this male teacher is a diabetic. Even with my insurance, I shovel out more per year than the average woman who has to pay the full cost of birth control has to pay. I've had to change my medication in order to make my out-of-pocket costs more manageable. Why shouldn't my medication be free? After all, I need it to stay healthy and alive, and to prevent a whole host of complications that raise health care costs.
And what about those with cancer? The young grandson of a family friend was recently diagnosed with cancer. I can only imagine the financial strain his treatment will put on his parents. Why are you more concerned that women get birth control for nothing than with providing life-saving radiation treatment and chemotherapy at no cost?
SO get it done, Barry -- whip out your pen and promulgate a regulation that makes the treatment of diabetes and cancer completely free. After all, you've made it really clear that cost should be no object when it comes to health care decisions. Or is that just rhetoric designed to obscure your policy payoff to the professional feminists and the abortion industry? America is waiting.
