Lost “under the radar” in the controversy over the HHS mandate is a frightening fact. The mandate forces employers of more than 50 people to provide, without copay, sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs, and contraception to women employees.
Only drugs and procedures for women are covered–not men. Female sterilization is covered, but not male. Why does the Obama administration want to sterilize only women? Why doesn’t the mandate include men also? Why does the mandate include only contraceptives for women, which are far more dangerous to a woman’s health? Why doesn’t the mandate include condoms or spermicides, but only IUDs, oral contraceptives, diaphragms, implants–all contraceptives for women?
Why is the Obama administration encouraging women to endanger their lives with these drugs and procedures, and not men? Why is the Obama administration encouraging women to permanently kill their fertility, and not men?
What problem does the Obama administration have with women’s fertility?
Where is the real “war on women” in this controversy?
