Trump administration questions birth control's health benefits

Police in Columbus are investigating after an officer shot and wounded a 16-year-old male who reportedly was holding a firearm and arguing with another male reports say

At a time when Trump finds himself embattled on many fronts, the two directives - issued nearly simultaneously on Friday - demonstrated the president's eagerness to retain the loyalty of social conservatives who make up a key part of his base.

If you're an employer, you can let your employees know you will continue to cover the cost of birth control.

At the community scale, scientists also observe that access to birth control reduces rates of unwanted pregnancies, births, and abortions. Now the Trump administration has chose to roll back that mandate, effective immediately, because every single thing Obama did must be undone and it's perfectly reasonable for God-fearing employers to dictate what women can do with their bodies.

In Bihar Question Paper, Kashmir Is A Separate Country
The question reads : What are the people of the following countries called: China, Nepal, England, Kashmir and India. Vaishali district education officer Sangeeta Sinha has assured that she will probe the matter.

A senior Analyst at the Center for Progressive Public Policy Priorities Stacey Pogue, said that the mover exasperated the difficulties the challenges Texas women face in obtaining birth control. "News flash to Republicans", Warren sneered. These health concerns' primary source of medication is the use of birth control. Turns out that when people have cost-free access to the birth control method of their choice, they are less likely to have an unintended pregnancy and therefore less likely to need an abortion. As a matter of common decency, you should be ashamed of demanding something so outrageous.

If your employer does decide to rescind coverage of birth control, you still may be able to access affordable contraception through your local Planned Parenthood clinic.

This action was largely to appease the religious right. But ramming that mandate down the throat of Christian colleges, Little Sisters of the Poor, and others with grave religious objections was worse than absurd; it was unconstitutional. But JoDee Winterhof of the Human Rights Campaign, a national LGBT-rights group, depicted the two directives as "an all-out assault, on women, LGBT people and others" as the administration fulfilled a "wish list" of the religious right. It is disturbing to see "reproductive rights" hardliners react with such fury to treating nuns with respect and sensitivity. Providing birth control with no co-pay isn't a burden. Trump's "tweak won't affect 99.9 percent of women", observes the Wall Street Journal, "and that number could probably have a few more 9s at the end".

Couple Wednesday for 75 years dies after California wildfire consumes their home
Thousands of structures are destroyed with thousands more still under threat as firefighters struggle to contain the flames. In the charred remains of the home, only metal and porcelain survived to testify to the couple's long life together.

Let's be clear: Birth control is a basic health care service, one almost nine in ten women in America will use in her lifetime.

Yet there is no legitimate rationale for such a mandate. Until the Obama-era rule, birth control was treated as a luxury and not a necessity, and the cost put it out of reach for many.

Schakowsky also decried the timing of Trump's decision, saying that rolling out the plan on the Friday before a long weekend "isn't fooling anyone" and that "women are smarter than that". Should insulin be free? Unfortunately, birth control is now joining the ranks. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops hailed the new policy as a "return to common sense" that would enhance "peaceful coexistence" between church and state.

Oklahoma Sooners vs Texas Longhorns, 10/14/17
The Sooners entered an inconspicuous game against the Iowa State Cyclones last Saturday riding a 14-0 SU and 10-4 ATS run. More recent history has shown the Longhorns can surprise the Sooners when Oklahoma is a heavy favorite.

"This rule is listing things that are not scientifically validated, and in some cases things that are wrong, to try to justify a decision that is not in the best interests of women and society", said Dr. Hal Lawrence, CEO of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, a professional society representing women's health specialists. While the product was shown to be safe and FDA scientific advisory committee members overwhelmingly recommended (23 to 4) that the drug be available over the counter, FDA officials, with involvement of the Bush White House, failed to take the scientific advice and kept access to the drug restricted. "We can not allow President Trump to roll back the progress women have made over the past century".
