HHS Mandate – Women’s rights

This is a series of short talking points that we have provided to our volunteers as information they can use in speaking out in various ways against the ObamaCare mandate on contraception. Feel free to use, build on, or share.

Women have a right to reproductive healthcare.

Not exactly: Women have a right to preventative reproductive healthcare that truly prevents disease, such as cancer screenings, removal of ovarian cysts, etc.; but contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs do not prevent disease. They damage or destroy a major, healthy functioning part of a woman’s body by disrupting her ability to conceive and/or to carry an unborn child to term.  Thus, these drugs, devices, and procedures are not healthcare at all; in fact, their primary purpose is to cause a health problem such that a woman’s reproductive system dysfunctions.

It is our government – via the Department of Health and Human Services and the Obama Administration – that has redefined and added “the full range of Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptive methods” (including abortion-causing drugs) and sterilization procedures as “preventative health care services for women.”
