Contraceptives cost individual responsibility

info@islandpacket.comOctober 26, 2012 

Under what rationale should American employers be forced under Obamacare to cover contraceptive costs for their employees?

Since the goal of medication is either the prevention or cure of disease or illness, and pregnancy is neither an illness nor a disease, there should be no question that the purchase of contraceptives is an expense to be borne by the individual.

Has the concept of personal responsibility become so foreign that some women are using this one issue to make their voting decision?
