Firstly? She is a private figure asked to testify about the value of contraception in her life. The assault on her by Rush are slander.
Secondly? Just quoting republican talking points doesn’t make it true.
The issue is that the woman’s boss can decide what healthcare she receives as part of her insurance based on his belief in an imaginary being. The issue is that catholic providers don’t want to give women contraception because apparently in Catholic Land contraception doesn’t work (because a bunch of celibate men whose only qualifications are celibacy and belief in an imaginary entity should be in charge of women’s healthcare).
The idea is that insurance companies should ATLEAST follow a basic standard of healthcare. This isn’t socialism so much as basic fucking sense. The inability to provide a basic standard of healthcare is what is the problem. The four pillars of being a doctor are “Medicine”, “Surgery”, “Social/Preventative Medicine” and “Obstetrics and Gynaecology”. Note how this is about how an insurance company doesn’t have to cover obstetrics and gynaecology not based on the customer’s choice but based on the employer’s belief in what effectively is an imaginary friend.
It’s simple. This is a culturally acceptable belief. If your boss was a Christian Science worshipper and believed in prayer would you accept prayer over medical aid as your health plan? If your boss was a scientologist, would you accept one of their sessions over time with a psychiatrist for your depression? If your boss was a Jehovah’s Witness would they be allowed to not cover any surgical procedure involving a blood transfusion or organ transplant?
Then why is it acceptable that Catholics insurers are allowed to simply not adhere to a pillar of medical care?
