A lot of the recent discussion of contraception coverage has focused on the fact that sometimes women take birth control pills for purely medical reasons [PDF]. Which is true, and it's tragic when they can't afford their meds, but this also kind of misses the fact that sometimes women take birth control pills so that they can have sex and not have babies. And let's be honest, both those things are great.
Luckily, as of today private insurance companies need to offer free contraception, including the Pill. Obamacare, women with medical issues salute you! Women who don't want kids salute you! Women who want kids, but only a certain number or not right now salute you! Future generations salute you, because a lower birth rate will improve carbon levels and also mean they have shorter lines at Starbucks! And we all salute you for probably making Rush Limbaugh's head explode.
