    Been reading Bawa Boxer again, I see. :rolleyes: She's also clueless.

    Your cute little photo is a lie. The product on the left isn't covered either. Your moronic, misguided utter fallacies are growing old.

    Wow. Even if it's true, it makes sense. One is to treat a legitimate medical condition. The other is to "avoid a mistake". Does that make sense?

    You are so kind and polite and never given to emotional outbursts and you always research your answers to give clear, rational, educational replies.

    Oh by the way read the following article:

    5 sexual health services insurance will cover… for men

    Still clueless ...

    SCOTUS dealt with the mandate under ACA. The few policies sold independent of ACA are free do cover whatever they want, however they want, wherever they want, at any price.

    The ACA does not cover the most popular and well known ED medications! :rolleyes:

    Again, you're comparing a legitimate medical concern to the ability to be promiscuous without a second thought. There really is no comparison. It's akin to complaining that a reconstruction for a burn victim is covered, but not a breast augmentation.

    So where would you place vaccinations? Should they not be covered? They are preventative actions taken to prevent a possible future medical condition.

    FWIW, I think that birth control pills should be covered, if an insurance company chooses to include them in their policies. I don't think the federal government should mandate them.

    Comparing vaccinations to birth control? One prevents disease. The other is for pleasure.

    Not always. Some women need birth control pills to control other conditions. Also, birth control pills prevent conception which can possibly reduce abortion, unwanted children, and other negative societal effects.

    Well, let's be honest. The pill does not provide pleasure, but it may well prevent unwanted pregnancies. Unwanted pregnancies will lead to more abortions ... and I do not believe your, I or anyone wants more abortions.

    Vaccinations and the pill are both preventatives. Philosophically we could split hairs, but .............................

    No the government should not, but you're missing the point. The SCOTUS decision doesn't apply to "all birth control." Only "morning after" contraceptives. You're engaging in the hyperbole -- oh, heck I'll call 'em what they are: Lies -- that the Feminazis are touting erroneously.

    You are off topic in your responses as I did not mention SCOTUS and their recent decision. Try to keep up. I was sure some Yo yo would not understand. :rolleyes:

    The only possible reference to birth control not being covered and popular male ED products being covered -- which, again, is a lie -- is the SCOTUS decision. Otherwise you could have posted this months ago. The fact you post it 24 hours after said decision gives the lie to your "protest."

    It appears the birth control pills ARE covered...

    Plans in the Health Insurance Marketplace must cover contraceptive methods and counseling for all women, as prescribed by a health care provider.

    These plans must cover the services without charging a copayment, coinsurance, or deductible when they are provided by an in-network provider.
    Covered contraceptive methods

    All Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptive methods prescribed by a woman’s doctor are covered, including:

    Barrier methods, like diaphragms and sponges
    Hormonal methods, like birth control pills and [email protected]@l rings
    Implanted devices, like intrauterine devices (IUDs)
    Emergency contraception, like Plan B® and ella®
    Sterilization procedures
    Patient education and counseling

    https://www.healthcare.gov/what-are-my-birth-control-benefits/


    Speaking of Covered/Not Covered:

    Sterilization of the female COVERED
    vasectomy of the male NOT COVERED

    The fact that you compare the Hobby Lobby concerns to men's sexual prescriptions means you do not understand the issue. One has nothing to do with the other. You are shwoing your ignorance on the issue.

    Show me the post where you said they were covered. Previously, in post #2 you said:

    Your cute little photo is a lie. The product on the left isn't covered either. Your moronic, misguided utter fallacies are growing old.

    The product on the left is Viagara. Am I missing something, TNID, and ITL ? What is your fight ? I thought the two of you agreed on this.

    I dunno. I said that birth control pills were covered and TND said he was stating the same thing, but his posts say that he thinks they aren't covered.

    Nothing to see here....move along, I guess.
