To coin a cliche on International Women’s Day, I have to ask: Where’s the beef? American women are being told that our most fundamental right–to control our reproductive destiny–should be of no consequence in health reform.
Think everything is ok with the health system? Maybe if you are a fetus. Otherwise, prepare to suffer under the mountain of pre-existing conditions for which insurance companies are seeking to reduce or eliminate coverage. C-sections are considered a pre-existing condition and the lack of maternity care coverage is justified because “having a child is a choice.”
