HHS Mandate Crackdown: Obama Admin Warns Insurance Companies They Must Pay for Abortion-Inducing Contraceptives (2015)

The Obama administration has doubled down on its demand that insurance companies furnish women with all forms of contraception, including those that act as abortifacients, at no cost – cracking down on those who allegedly refuse to offer such drugs in their health insurance plans. Congressional Democrats urged President Obama to make the alleged evasion a priority. One of their complaints, based on two April 2015 reports released by the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) and the Kaiser Family Foundation, was that while health insurance companies may cover one of each in a “category” of contraceptive/abortifacient, these companies should be forced to cover all 18 methods recognized by the Food and Drug Administration. The New York Times reports: [R]esearchers at the National Women’s Law Center found that some insurers lumped together several methods of contraception and covered only one or two in a category. For example, they said, some insurers did not cover the contraceptive patch or the vaginal contraceptive ring because they covered another “hormonal method” of contraception, like birth control pills. “Under the new guidance,” the Times concludes, “such restrictions are not allowed.” Nor will co-pays or cost-sharing be permitted; insurance companies must provide all contraceptive/abortifacient methods “at no cost to consumers.” NWLC Vice President Gretchen Borchelt that “insurance companies have been breaking the law, and today the Obama administration underscored that it will not tolerate these violations.” The NWLC joined Senator Patty Murray, D-WA, in praising the Obama administration’s move. Murray, who along with other congressional Democrats had demanded clarification of the Department of Health and Human Services’ rules on contraceptive/abortifacient coverage, alleged that women throughout...

The Chemical Abortion Twins / Stealth Abortion Pill (UPDATE Jan 2012; Aug 2010)

 ASK Your Pharmacist to NOT STOCK ELLA…  http://downloads.frc.org/EF/EF10I20.pdf   Chemical Abortion Twins: Mifepristone & Ella Pro-lifers recognize surgical abortion as killing humans, but not all of them recognize the scope of the problem presenting as chemical abortion. Generally we  recognize  mifepristone, the chemical formerly known as RU-486. The initial name of the drug  stayed with us, (the same as with the Artist formerly known as Prince).  Mifepristone is best known in the U.S. for its function to kill unborn humans during the embryonic stage, up to 49 days of pregnancy, although it has other investigational uses. Meet the TWINS!  Ulipristal acetate and Mifepristone.  As you can see, they’re not quite identical, but very close. Both are selective progesterone receptor modulators. [For these diagrams, visit http://themorningafter.us/chemical-abortion/ ] Mifepristone, RU-486 is the most regulated drug in the U.S. Pharmacists don’t dispense it. It’s supposed to be dispensed only by physicians, directly to patients. In China and other countries it has been used as a morning after pill, as well as a killer of later embryos and early fetuses. Those astute drug companies knew that this drug would not sell as a morning after pill in the U.S. That’s why we have it’s TWIN, Ulipristal Acetate, approved  by the FDA  in August , 2010,  and brought to us in by Watson Pharmaceuticals in December of the same year.  Watson also distributes Next Choice, generic of the original form of Plan B. At 0.5mg/kg, Ulipristal Acetate, marketed as ELLA, is usable as a morning after pill. It’s marketed as an inhibitor of ovulation, but the manufacturer admits that the operative mechanism depends on...
