There is a lot of controversy over the US Supreme Court ruling saying that private companies can decline to pay for birth control for women if they have religious problems with proving birth control for employees. I will not debate the merits of the ruling. I will tell you some very practical consideration that all of you ladies taking birth control pills know. They are very expensive! I have seen prices of up to $200 US per month. If one’s health insurance does not cover such things it put an additional burden on the family.
