When do Amnericans ( those with a brain ) realise that it is a womans right to decide what she is doing with her body not some religious bashing political party that decides whether or not she has a baby.
I agree that in some cases religion does pay a part in deciding about contraception ( like the Catholics although in the main many turn a blind eye to that ) , these days with the ever increasing cost of bringing up children to foist upon a woman the legal ramifications of going against what her party believes in about contraception just feels a rule/law too far.
A lont time ago it was an issue, nowadays no-one I know pays much attention to it, either the Pill ( if you are in a stable relationship) or a Condom is used due to other prevalent health risks both are considered contraception. So why would a political party do away with those acceptable methods when it is saying ok helth risks notwithstanding wew do not agree. if the future of America is decided on whether Contraception is allowed or not , then I pity Americans .

The contraception issue is about religious groups (Jews, Christians, Catholics) and the religions themselves being forced to provide contraception, which is against their teachings. It is the government forcing their doctrine on people and violates the First Amendment to the Constitution.
A prescription of birth control pills is about $12 per month. There is no shortage in receiving them, and I have never ever heard of anyone being denied them. This issue has not been introduced by the Secular Left to provide birth control as much as it is being used as another intrusion by imposing big government mandates into private decisions.

If that is the case, how has gestation age been determined in the many years preceding this new legislation?
Has it involved invasive body penetration?
