Isn't it Dishonest to Call the Morning After Pill a Contraceptive?

:iconmaddmatt:
maddmatt Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012
In this forum whenever we discuss (hurl insults at each other in the name of good lulz) the coverage of contraceptives, the only real argument ever presented is that employers should be forced to cover birth control pills because they are used as medical treatments for controlling monthly cycles....blah...blah...blah...

[link]

But in this article, I was expecting to see the same argument about a private business with a Christian ownership group not wanting to cover contraceptives. Instead, I read that the sticking issues are that they do not want to cover abortion pills in their insurance.

Now these drugs are for the expressed purpose of killing a child(fetus, blob of cells, parasite, or any other wonderful names liberals have for this life) AFTER conception.

The medical definition of a contraception is a medical treatment that prevents conception. Prevents conception. We are talking about drugs that are taken AFTER conception. That is their purpose. So the first point, is can a government mandate on pre-conception treatments really mandate post-conception attempts to abort the resulting child?


The second issue, is that it seems as an owner of a business, you lose all rights to the free exercise of your religious convictions:

"Plaintiffs have not cited, and the court has not found, any case concluding that secular, for-profit corporations such as Hobby Lobby and Mardel have a constitutional right to the free exercise of religion," the ruling said.

Those that celebrate the destruction of religious liberties will no doubt cheer this slap in the face of the Constitution. But those that actually care about the personal liberties we all enjoy and should expect, do you care about the dishonest measures being taken to classify something as pre-conception treatment when it clearly is not? Just to get it covered and forced on people, churches, and conscientious business owners that find forcing others to pay for your abortion as deplorable.

Those that really are pro-abortion have no excuses. You can't hide behind wanting this for some monthly period adjustment. There is only one purpose for these, and if you support this, you reveal yourself to be truly pro-abortion, and wanting others to pay for that.

Why? It's a process of prevent pregnancy when used.

Or terminating one.

But if prevention is the goal, why didn't they choose to use the variety of very available and affordable methods and substances prior to having sex?

It can be used before or after regardless of its strength.Maybe some women want to take creampies (for a lack of less vulgar word)? Maybe they like that feel without being made pregnant? Science argues women who do take creampies (there's that word again) can be healthier and happier as a result.

It's not an abortion pill. It prevents the ovaries from releasing an egg and makes in harder for the sperm to get to one. It's preventative and only works if you're NOT already pregnant, hence having to use it so soon after sex.

Plan B and especially ella also can work after an egg used been released and fertilized. They are not preventative. They are reactive after sex. And employers should not be forced to pay for these.

If it was 100% conclusively proven that Plan B only worked by preventing ovulation and had no effect on fertilized or implanted eggs, then would you have a problem with it?

I would have a problem with forcing employers to pay for it.

Why? It's not abortion anymore, is it? I think that even you would agree that lone eggs or sperm aren't people. You can't use the "muh feelings" card anymore.

Because it serves no vital health issue that's not easily prevented.
