If we allow employers to control birth control options based on their own religious beliefs, what else will some be able to control based on their personal belief system?
Some religions don't believe in blood transfusions. If you need one, will your employer's religious beliefs determine if your health insurance will cover a necessary transfusion?
If your employer were a Christian Scientist, could s/he decide you don't need to have any health coverage at all?
Shouldn't all medical options be covered ---and then if an individual chooses not to use birth control or have a transfusion, the individual could refuse to use that benefit, not that person's boss?
I'm a senior citizen who will never need to use birth control again. I'm willing to have it in my health plan if it means that those people who want it or need it will have the option of using it or refusing to use it themselves.
Religious freedom should be an individual choice, not mandated by anyone else, not an employer, not anyone.
Medical decisions should be made by a patient with input from a doctor, not an employer.
