Us . . . Winning A Little

I'm not getting used to it, but it seems the sane people are something of a roll lately.

Today, two more wins on the reproduction front.

In the US, contraception is now as important to healthcare coverage as Viagra.
Today, in a huge victory for women’s health, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that most employers will be required to cover contraception in their health plans, along with other preventive services, with no cost-sharing such as co-pays or deductibles. This means that after years of trying to get birth control covered to the same extent that health plans cover Viagra, our country will finally have nearly universal coverage of contraception.

I'm still pissed at Obama over the idiotic Plan B decision, but this is good.

Next, from the UK, fetus fetishist and fraud-artist, Nadine Dorries has withdrawn her private member's bill mandating 'abstinence education' for UK teens. Like, it worked so well in the Excited States.

Back to work. . .
