Whore Pills For All!

I’ve been seeing a couple women post this link (Law Will Allow Employers to Fire Women for Using Whore Pills) on their Facebook timeline recently.  It’s a link to the website, Jezebel.

The fact they use the term “Whore Pills” in their title sure adds to the shock value, doesn’t it?  If you’re offended by Limbaugh using the term “slut” you should be offended by this website using the term “whore,” unless you are totally hypocritical.  But that’s another debate for another time…

If you click through the source link the post provided, you get to a real news article. (Senate Judiciary Committee Endorses Controversial Contraceptive Bill)

In this article, two sides of the issue are laid out. One side claims that this is a “War on Women” *TM Democratic Party 2012  They claim that they are being denied coverage for their healthcare and that employers are standing between doctors and patients.

Let me tackle this one first.  Do you know how much birth control pills cost?  $9 a month.  NINE FREAKIN’ DOLLARS A MONTH!  When was the last time that you put in an insurance claim for coverage of something that costs less a large pizza?

At any rate, if you MUST have $9 a month covered by insurance, how do you think that gets paid for?  It get’s paid for by the insurance company.  How does the insurance company get the money to pay for it?  Through individual premiums and employer contributions.

Allow me to enlighten you as to how insurance works, as I have a Pennsylvania insurance license and may know a little about this.  Individuals and employers contribute money to an insurance pool, where all the money is lumped together.  While you’re paying your premiums, you may not be using that money by making a claim, however someone else IS filing a claim and taking money from that pool.  Therefore, you are part of funding that person’s claim, just as they would be funding yours should you file one.  This is the basic tenant of insurance: a large group of people pooling their money to protect each other in case something CATASTROPHIC happens for which the individual would not be able to afford it on their own.

Let’s first look at the employer contributions, as this is the other side of the issue. The claim is that government imposing its will on religious institutions violates the 1st amendment of the Constitution. You can’t force a religious institution to pay for something that they find morally reprehensible. Remember, Obama’s mandate doesn’t just cover birth control pills, but abortive drugs as well.

So Obama “compromised” *TM Democratic Party 2012 by saying that religious employers didn’t have to pay for them, the insurance companies did.  A-ha!  There’s the rub!  See, those matching payments made by employers, which fund insurance coverage, aren’t really paying for the pills… it’s all slight of hand and hocus pocus.

Except they are paying for it.  And what about religious insurers: religious companies who service religious clients who want to avoid their money going to such things? (Google “religious insurance companies” for a list)  They are forced as well.

I’m not a terribly religious person, but I am a person who supports the Constitution when it comes to protecting religious liberties as well as a person who believes you should pay for, to quote Jezebel, you own “whore pills” since they cost only $9 a month.

Enough is enough ladies.  Don’t like your company’s benefits package?  Disagree with your religious organization’s beliefs?  Work somewhere else or buy a personal plan yourself.  This is all on you… after all, it’s all about a woman’s choice, right?

    I don't have insurance at all because I'm a cheap optimist…
    I just think…
    1. it's a crappy distraction, and
    2. it's SO sexist! They're not attacking Viagra…
    3. "Whore pills" is funny

    • It is a distraction from high gas prices. As for Viagra, it costs $10-$11 PER PILL, so a month's supply if using one a day (lucky guy) would be roughly $300-$330. And yes, "Whore Pills" is funny.
