Obama says religious nonprofits will not be mandated to cover birth control in employee benefits. However insurance companies will be required to offer the services free of charge to any employee who requests them.
Call me crazy but I feel like its a good compromise. Personally I don't agree with religious organizations who don't want to include birth control, however I don't feel like they need to be mandated to provide contraception if its against their religion. However it must be available to those who want it or need it.
It seems to me that it makes since that birth control is a standard service that should be covered. The thought that religious groups don't want to include it in insurance plans is asinine to me. I respect the compromise that Obama seems to have come up with though.
