No-copay for birth control a reality

Kathleen SebeliusImage via WikipediaSecretary of HHS, Kathleen Sebelius announced that all new insurance plans under the new health care law(Obama Care) must cover birth control as no co-pay.  In other words free for women.  Planned Parenthood, The Center for Reproductive Rights and Naral Pro-Choice worked very hard to reach this point.  Thank you and well done. Unfortunately, this only applies to people with insurance.  With republican state legislatures cutting health care for the poor, closing planned parenthood centers all over the country this is no help at all for the uninsured.
