So now the Obama administration can force Catholics, Mormons, orthodox Jews, Muslims and other people religiously opposed to abortion to pay for these services through their insurance premiums. They are running rough shod over the Constitution and many in Mountain View slavishly support them because they agree with their views. Well, when they run over your views there will be no one left to help you.

Where does it say ANYTHING about abortion? That is the problem. Say a lie loud enough and long enough and it becomes a truth. It's not a truth, it's still a lie. There is nothing about paying for abortion. I have heard many of the arguements from the religous organizations complaining about having to offer contraception which is against their moral views. It is an offer - do they not believe that their people share their moral views? They don't have to use the services, not if they don't believe them to be moral. No one is forcing them to use them, only to offer them.

Suppose the Romney Administration forces insurance companies to pay for counseling for teenagers with homosexual tendencies to "straighten" them out. You, of course, would not have to use the counseling for your children. Would you be OK with paying for the extra fees charged by the insurance company for providing this counseling?

so from now on, men's PROSTATE TESTS will be free ? More men die each year from Prostate Cancer than do women from breast and uterine cancers.. and since Men usually don't live as long as the ladies, then Men should be able to cut to the front of the Medical Waiting lines, even ahead of the illegals.
