I learned today that I am forced to pay for your birth control and your morning-after, orÂ a-few-days-later, abortion. Condoms included. It will all be “free” to you, because Obama said so. I’ll pay for your breast pump and other breast feeding “supports.” If I’m sounding bitter, I guess shouldn’t. “These historic guidelines are based on science and existing literature.”Â Nevermind. I’m. Still. Bitter. No copays. Complete coverage. You still have time to run out and buy your condoms. Coverage starts today. There’s about 4 hours left to do what you’re going to do and bill it to me. Go on now. Ron Burgundy is waiting.
The IOM recommendation, opposed by pro-life groups, called for the Obama administration to require insurance programs to include birth control â€” such as the morning after pill or theÂ ella drugÂ that causes an abortion days after conception â€” in the section of drugs and services insurance plans must cover under â€œpreventative care.â€ The companies will likely pass the added costs on to consumers, requiring them to pay for birth control and, in some instances, drug-induced abortions of unborn children in their earliest days.

The IOM recommendations will potentially require people who are not in favor of these drugs to cover and participate in something they find objectionable. You donâ€™t have to agree with such objections, but at the same time people should not be forced to violate their consciences.â€
â€œCurrently, nearly one in three women finds it difficult to pay for birth control, and thatâ€™s why the United States has a far higher unintended-pregnancy rate than other industrialized countries. Making family-planning services available at no cost will help millions of women prevent unintended pregnancy and thereby reduce the need for abortion.â€
How many of you who cannot afford your own “birth control” smoke and/or drink, have cell phones, and autos, eat lunch out, have tattoos and pierced ears, get a mani-pedi to boost your spirits, and have more than one television set? When you go out to party, it’s only on Ladies Free Night…right? You don’t ever buy romance novels, or tabloid rags at the Super Market…right? And of course, you’re not paying any income tax – so I pay that for you as well. And what’s wrong with your man? He can’t provide for you? Oh, I see…you don’t know where to find him?…don’t remember his name…never knew his name? Or how about that hubby or live-in? Bet he drinks his weight in beer. And smokes. Eats pork rinds by the gross.
Can someone guess how Obama can “approve” the “recommendation” from the IOM? Did I miss his crowning, or was it done behind closed doors? UPDATE 8-2-11: I talked by phone to Senator Tom Coburn’s office. The provision for birth control and abortion fixes was in the original ObamaCare bill. August 1 was the day it became effective. Today’s announcement was just an announcement.
Hey ladies, you did date Ron Burgundy, didn’t you? Sure you did.
