Letter: President Trump has ended the mandate for birth control to be included in health insurance coverage from businesses and organizations.
Birth control pills do a lot more for women than prevent pregnancy. They can treat endometriosis, regulate menstruation, provide relief from cramps, premenstrual syndrome and other conditions.
The reasoning, as with previous exemptions, is so a business or organization that has moral or religious beliefs contrary to using birth control can refuse to cover it.
So, let me get this straight. God would want a woman to suffer from an often painful medical condition if she could not afford the birth control that helps to ease the symptoms of the condition?
God believes that only economically comfortable women, or women who can get financial help from family members or have good health plans, should be able to have their symptoms lessened? Sarcasm aside, birth control medications treat a number of medical conditions. Using religious or moral reasons to deny birth control coverage doesn’t say much for someone’s moral or religious values.
