I dont understand what this means. 5 years ago from a Republican in Altoona, IA

If ED treatment is available then contraception should also be available - Both or neither. 5 years ago from a Socialist in Littleton, CO
Should be offered. If people don't want to use it, that's their choice. Should have a list of health care options needed. In other words, pay for what you need not what everyone else needs. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Clearview City, KS

Yes, but at a generic price. Not free. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Wellington, OH
No, if people want to have sex it is their responsibility to take precautionary measures. 5 years ago from a Green in Eugene, OR
Small businesses/ small-scale employers shouldn't, otherwise it should be covered like any other prescription. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Santa Maria, CA
Yes depending upon age. 5 years ago from a Republican in North Waltham, MA
This question does not cover the specifics of the debate - abortion inducing drugs are at the true root of the furor. We need to have conception control. 5 years ago from a Republican in New Baltimore, MI
Insurance companies shouldn't be involved in healthcare at all, it should be a public service funded entirely by the government. 5 years ago from a Green in Portland, OR
Government needs to back down on requiring anything about health insurance. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Tinley Park, IL
