Like Birth Control with No Co-Pay? Say Thank you President Obama

Right to Life groups, Catholic bishops and other church groups pushed very hard against birth control with no co-pay.  Not content with preaching from the pulpit, catholic bishops wanted the government to enforce their religious doctrine which proscribes birth control.  President Obama took a firm stand and refused to allow religious institutions to exclude birth control from their health insurance programs.  Why would any sane society allow old celibate men the right to control women and what women do with their bodies?

You can thank President Obama for making sure that all women's insurance policies provide birth control with No-Copay.  Click here to see the wide range of services covered under the Affordable Care Act
The following piece by Stephanie Cutter clearly shows the extreme difference between President Barack Obama and every one of the Republican Presidential candidates. 

Big News on Birth Control

By Stephanie Cutter, Deputy Campaign Manager on
Here’s some big news that’s going to affect millions of women.
On Friday, the Obama administration announced that soon women won’t have to pay out of pocket for birth control: starting August 1st, many insurance plans nationwide will be required to fully cover contraception without co-pays or deductibles. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, more women can make health care decisions based on what's best for them—not their insurance company—all while saving hundreds of dollars every year.
Think about how different that is from what the candidates on the other side would do. They’ve all vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and Mitt Romney even said he would have signed a constitutional amendment in Massachusetts to define life as beginning at conception, similar to the notorious state-level “personhood” amendment that could ban many forms of contraception, and even IVF.

 Who else wants to allow Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum to decide what women can and cannot do with their bodies?  Speaker Boehner (R-OH) wants to overturn Roe vs. Wade.  Do you feel comfortable letting this man decide what women can do with their bodies?
