For The Ladies: The Obama Administration May Approve Free Birth Control With All Health Insurance

- By Bossip Staff

If Barry O can pull this one off he’s guaranteed to get the women’s vote in 2012.

A highly influential panel of medical experts recommended to the U.S. Department of Health on Tuesday that all health insurance plans be legally required to offer free birth control to patients.

The Obama Administration commissioned the non-partisan Institute of Medicine (IOM) panel to recommend which preventative health services all insurance plans should fully cover under the Affordable Care Act. In addition to covering birth control, the IOM suggested in its report that health insurers pay for HPV testing, contraceptive and lactation counseling, HIV screening and breast-feeding equipment.

“As someone who has worked on women’s rights for nearly 30 years, I can say that today’s news marks one of the biggest advances for women’s health in a generation,” said Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Currently, nearly one in three women finds it difficult to pay for birth control, and that’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.”

Keenan added she was “confident that the Obama administration will adopt the IOM’s science-based recommendation and thus make affordability of contraception a reality for all women.”

Yes we can!!

    Hell ya!…it’s about time! We as a black community need to take advantage of this(if it actually happens). We don’t need more throw away kids! I’m so sick of hearing about children who are left by the waste side, so their Momma’s and Poppa’s get to live their lives! But unfortunatley, I know that most of these usless bishes will forget to take the damn pill!

    There is 100x more estrogen in our environments today than 50 years ago, specifically because of birth control pills. (Women takes pill, urinates, goes into the water systems) We now have young girls start menstruating at age 8, men with breast tissue, men with erectile disfunction and low testosterone. Little girls fully developed, walking around looking like grown women. This equals to more hormones in our food (cattle, chickens, eggs etc). And its all been proven over and over again. There are turtles who can’t mate because their male genitalia is too short because of all the estrogen in the water. Fish with both male and female parts. It’s now happening to birds. Don’t believe me, look it up. Tests are being done right now at UC Davis. All because we wanted to be free to sleep with whoever, whenever we want. This world is getting more and more scary by the minute.
