Thank you for this article. I am so tired of all the hype surrounding this contraception issue. This is really all about the dollars! This has nothing to do with restricting access and everything to do with WHO is going to PAY for what is already available. The fact is anyone can go to Planned Parenthood and get condoms for like $1. But most people aren't interested in that. They want the pill. Oh, but they can't afford the pill. So insurance companies should have to pay for the pill. After all, everyone has a right to health care don't they! Everyone has a right to their contraception of choice. But not eveyone can afford to pay for their choice. So now we have the federal government telling who is going to pay. This and all of the issues surrounding it have nothing to do with access, or what we have or don't have but money. And who will pay for those who cannot afford to. It's is ludicrous to think that any politician will be turning back the cultural clock to the 1950's. I agree that the president is quite skilled at creating two groups of people who are divided on an issue and then stepping back to watch the chicken fight.
