No one is trying to take BC away. It being 'free' is REALLY new. No one is restricting women from going to buy it and very few are objecting to offering it for 'free' in their insurance plans.

And there is a downside to this 'free' preventative care for women. Changing the screening guidelines for breast and cervical cancer.

Nothing is free. And imo they changed they guidelines because they are paying for it.

So does that mean we were getting overly screened before or not screened enough now?

So you believe that the religious right is ok with selling safe and effective BC including abortifacients over the counter?

Colorado initiative proves free birth control reduces teen pregnancy - Business Insider

Between 2009 and 2015, "teen births dropped 40 percent, abortions fell 35 percent and the state avoided more than $80 million in Medicaid costs," according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's website.

The New York Times reports that the changes "were particularly pronounced in the poorest areas of the state, places like Walsenburg, a small city in Southern Colorado where jobs are scarce and unplanned births come often to the young."

So, then what happened?
