Isn't the Iron Man suit basically a giant body condom? Just musing there, but I am enjoying seeing the lefties go nuts about everything this decision is not. If anything, does this not empower women to be more accountable for their own actions? No one is taking rights away. Sorry, but anything to keep the government less intrusive into our lives is a good thing in my book.

"I've never understood being against abortion, but also against contraception and sex education."
@holygod: Studies by the pro-choicers (a long ways back!) said only 5% of pro-lifers opposed contraception. They INTENDED to say this was hypocrisy in their literature, but in fact it supports the pro-life side (which was constantly being accused of that).
@holygod: Abstinence never killed anyone. Ask Muslims if their daughters should be free to have sex before marriage... just sayin: it`s an idea supported by LOTS of people...
"3. I don`t think any doctor in america would perform a female circumcision."
Sadly? You are mistaken, many have been arrested for this.
"Some companies ARE suing about all forms of birth control."
Yes, the socialists have lied to you about Hobby Lobby. They already offer 16 forms of contraception. This is about control, about government authority over companies. The only thing actually controversial about the decision is that 4 Justices dissented. They should be impeached.
"I don't think most elective surgeries are covered by health insurance?"
This is not about insurance. This is about mandates for health plans.
Insurance is now banned in the US (or rather is not compliant with the ACA) and I believe has been banned in some states for a long time.
Insurance is a hedge against contingencies. Anything that covers regular medical care (check-ups that are not in the interest of the underwriter, birth control, minor treatments that everyone can expect to need in a normal lifetime, ante-natal and early-life care, "preventative" medicine for those not known to be at significantly elevated risk) is a healthcare plan.
Of course a healthcare plan is a very expensive, inefficient way of paying for healthcare.
As I understand it the ACA mandates cover for many aspects of healthcare that are not insurable risk.
