I generally don't agree with Bill O'Reilly and by-and-large I consider him to be a trainwreck. I do give him credit as he's the only one on Fox willing to sit and have a rational discussion with Jon Stewart and actually can make some pretty cogent points from time to time.

All that being said, felafel.

Stewart was holding back. Anyone can kill the birth control argument by pointing out that because Viagra is covered by insurance, so should birth control. I hope he was just saving that for the stomping he's going to give O'Reilly.

Depends where you live. The HHS order only applies to women's oral contraceptives.

Are they? Because that's a more appropriate analogy.

I already know Bill will say, "Viagra treats a medical problem."

I've never absolutely loved the Viagra comparison for that reason. Arguably Viagra makes a body part that's not working work, and birth control makes a bodily system that's working not work. We shouldn't be covering birth control because it's somehow mandated by equal treatment, we should be covering birth control because it's a good farking idea. One of the few things I dislike about the ACA is it's primary focus on wellness visits and treatment specifically for women, I don't see there needing to be a gender line there, and specifically with reproduction I'd think vasectomies and with luck eventually a male pharmaceutical birth control should be covered too.

Yeah the birth control argument is easy, because it can and is given to women to TREAT MEDICAL conditions not releated to birth control. If you deny a woman the ability to get birth control despite a medical professional recommendation due to its ability to treat a number of female specific issues because it also has another ability, then you are denying proper health care to a person because of GENDER.

Once again birth control can and is used to treat female conditions other than getting pregnant.

Doctors will actually prescribe it for a short period of a month or two then have them stop so that the woman CAN GET PREGANT.

Why are the sonservatives against heterosexual couples wanting to start a family???

Doctors will prescribe birth control to help control the hormonal blanace of woman, much like doctors prescribe men Testosterone patches. Why are conservatives allowing one gender to have health care but not another?

If you argue that the birth control pill prevents women from getting pregnant and bottom line thats wrong, well testosterone patches will actually reduce the effectiveness of sperm and potentially reducing the fertility of the male patient.

This is true. My wife is currently on birth control so we can try to get pregnant.

Can someone enlighten me please?
With 'Obamacare', is birth-control available to all women at all times or only when it is prescribed by a doctor for medical reasons?
Likewise the Viagra, is it only available if prescribed?

All contraception is free via your doctor or clinic. This covers the pill for women and condoms for men.

Actually, in most states you can't get one without written consent from your wife. Feminists don't have a problem with that for some reason.

I don't think that's a law, it's very much up to the doctor. Many doctors won't sterilize, or are hesitant to sterilize those that are young or without children.

My snip-snip doctor asked me a number of times about how long I'd been married, how many kids I had, how old they were, etc. I definitely got the impression he'd decline to do it if I'd answered incorrectly.

O'Reilly still going with "she wants everyone else to pay for her birthcontrol"

This is one of those areas where you just can't tell if he's being evil or stupid. She wants the insurance policy....THAT SHE IS PAYING THE FREAKING PREMIUMS ON.....to cover a medically necessary prescription.

And Bill says "she wants all of us to pay for her social life"

I don't understand anyone who can say there is anything remotely redeeming about Bill O'Reilly. And frankly, I don't understand how John doesn't just get up from his chair and start choking the life out of him because he is literally too stupid and dangerous to be alive if this is what he really believes.

Only when prescribed by a doctor. But if you have insurance, it has to be given without a co-pay. 

Viagra is prescription-only, and you can still be charged a co-pay and/or have it not be covered by insurance.

When my doctor started quizzing me like this before my snip, I plainly stated that he would either do it or I would find another doctor. That ended the quizzing.

I'd bet it has to do with liability, I'm sure people have tried to sue doctors for doing a vasectomy and then claiming they didn't understand the consequences, weren't in their right mind/rushed, or the wife made some protest.

One would think it would be cheaper for an insurance carrier to pay for birth control pills than to cover a pregnancy.

No, vasectomies usually are out of pocket. But you can get a cock pump paid for, while cruising around in your govt. paid for Hoveround because your fat ass gave yourself Type 2 Diabeeetus.

I disagree with 95% of what comes out of Bill O'Reilly's mouth. He is without a doubt arrogant and stubborn.

But....

The fact that he will actually leave the echo chamber to engage and discuss politics with people he vehemently disagrees with Jon Stewart, President Obama, etc speaks volumes about his character. I wish more people both on the left and right (more the right, I am a liberal after all) would do this.

Hell, he helped raise $750,000 for Military families with President Obama. "He is a regular guy," O'Reilly said of the president. "He gets it right away. He was like, 'Fisher House,' and boom, I was right there" with him."

That right there puts him far above the normal, partisan trash.

Not that I'm against birth control, but saying that it should be covered because Viagra is makes absolutely no sense to me. They're not even close to being the same thing.

That's my thought as well. It's been a while since I've seen birth control cost, but think I still have a decent handle on it. I also know how much my niece's birth cost (just delivery, not pre-natal care). That visit to the maternity ward cost more than 3 lifetime supplies of birth control.

Check the fine print on your marriage certificate, my friend. When your wife says she owns your sorry balls, she's not just speaking metaphorically.

/fortunately, divorce nullifies her legal claim to your nuts, making "she gets half of everything" divorce settlements ever so slightly less painful
//in most states, anyway. And don't ask about European courts unless you need help getting your eyes to water

No to mention, woman who will die if they get pregnant, or are currently on another drug for something else that would hideous birth defects. And the 4th says the government shouldn't be able to ask for proof.

I was young when I got mine (Delaware, 23, at the time) and my doctor only warned me to be very sure this was what I wanted as reversal was difficult and unlikely. I told him 2 kids was more than enough and it was covered by my insurance at the time. Still don't regret it. The best part is since then (divorced, 35 now), several girlfriends have told me they were worried they might be pregnant and I told each one of them, "you might be, but it's not mine". Oddly, none of them found that funny.
