    THIS. THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS.

    See this is where you are confused. The government is not PAYING for your birth control. The government is ensuring that basic birth control is AFFORDABLE (re: free) by enforcing a no-copay restriction for basic birth control on insurance companies. Therefore, your insurance company is paying for your birth control, which last time I checked is only able to exist because, oh yes that is right — YOU PAY A PREMIUM EVERY MONTH.

    This is the same as mandating affordable (re: free) yearly exams and other preventative steps. Why, you ask? WHY?! Because prevention is actually CHEAPER than “fixing” (either abortion/birthing for birth control or death/hospital bills for, say high cholesterol related implications).

    Hypocrisy is thinking that the ACA is wrong and then taking advantage of medicaid or going to a hospital without insurance and leaving your bills to the taxpayers.

    Since BASIC birth control is already well into it’s generic phase, it is a relatively cheap thing for an insurance company to cover, with little impact to premiums or the company as a whole. If anything, this is not hypocrisy but the breaking down of a stigma that birth control should be thought of as anything other than another medicinal option.

    You can’t tell someone to stay out of your bedroom… then demand they pay for your birth control.
