Because freedom can't protect itself
The true flaw here is the poor public policy that keeps BC pills a prescription drug 50+ years after they were invented. They are among the safest of pharmaceuticals, and should be over the counter. We don't expect our insurance to cover bandaids, aspirin or shampoo. Why should it cover BC pills?
Well, there is a difference between discrimination and abortion. As the Catholic's view abortion as murder, they are aganst it, same goes for contraceptives. I find this very puzzling for the ACLU, since they are for peoples rights. If it is the opinion of that person and their beleif, than why should that be overridden by the goverment? Isn't that why we have a first amendment? To prevent religious beliefs from being trampled?
It is more of a throwing that out there, and I'm not Catholic. But where does the ACLU stand? For religious beliefs or womens rights?
