Be Careful

Facts only please, might I suggest you rename yourself Facts Only But Not Necessarily Factual Please. I read the article and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report which is not cited. I looked it up and it is called “Clinical Preventive Services for Women: Closing the Gaps” so you can read now. After you read the report, you can make your facts factual. Your declaration that “98% of women have used birth control! Why not let it be free to them?” is bogus.

From the IOM report (page 49), “…in 2002, more than 89 percent of insurance plans covered contraceptive methods (Sonfield et al., 2004).A more recent (2010) survey of employers found that 85 percent of large employers and 62 percent of small employers covered Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives (Claxton et al., 2010).”

Second, nobody is forcing people to work at church related companies. In fact, not all churches are as strict as the Catholic Church. So, my suggestion is don't work for a church who doesn't provide contraceptives. You do have a choice. If folks can be Pro-choice why can’t they make choices about their employer? Or is working not a regulating their own body? Tell their body what job to take and what to do when they get here, etc. I would suggest healthcare benefits are what a smart person looks at before they take a job. In addition, what percentage of employees works for a Catholic or other religious organization that does not want to provide contraceptives as part of health care? I can’t imagine it is that many. But hey you are the one who wants facts, can you do some research on that or are you just going to make up some more facts?
