Upset that it’s 2012 and we’re still fighting over birth control in the US legislature?
Here’s what you can do to help:

There is definitely a natural way to treat PCOS. My roommate is on vitamin supplements and the mediterranean diet, and she’s doing very well. BC Pills are not a right. Employees don’t have a “right” to health insurance from their private employers. It has nothing to do with sex, birth control pills, etc. This is about freedom. If you honestly think that the government will just do this for this one thing, you’re mistaken.
Especially because this isn’t about making BC illegal. It’s about making a group pay for something that goes against their conscience. You wouldn’t make pacifists pay for guns even if the guns weren’t going to be used for evil.
Just because you know somebody who chooses to use holistic medicine instead of scientifically proven medication doesn’t mean that I should have to suffer. I’ve tried going off the birth control pills, and I got worse almost instantly. Go ahead. Take my medication. Hope you never need help with cancer treatment, pregnancy issues, severe burns, HIV, insulin, or anything else. Because apparently you assume that you are not only going to have perfect health forever, but you assume that you will never be in financial hardship. Enjoy the ignorance until it’s no longer blissful.
I truly am sorry if the only health insurance available to you is run by Catholics. If that’s not the case, though, then no one is going to take your medication. They don’t want BC to not be covered by any agency at all. They just don’t want their own privately owned companies to have to pay for it because making it more readily available goes against their consciences. I apologize for the irrelevant anecdote about my room mate.
