Refusing To Cover Birth Control Pills On One’s Health Insurance

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 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.

In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
