Catholic Church May Be Influencing Obama's Decision Regarding Health Insurance Providers and Birth Control

Women need more access to affordable birth control.

A few months ago I was chatting with my gynecologist about the new law which would force health insurance companies to pay for birth control with no co-pays beginning in 2012; as a woman currently fighting with my insurance company over their refusal to pay for my birth control, I was ecstatic about the news that the United States was moving forward in respect to women’s health. 


My relief might be short-lived.
