C. Richards: Why all the fuss?


What is all the hoopla about medical polices finally forcing coverage of birth control?

It’s a choice, not a mandate. An insurance policy pays for numerous medications and procedures but people don’t have to use them unless needed.

Actually, I think it’s about time — policies pay for Viagra. It is a good balance because there are all those men with a new lease on life, so why shouldn’t their partners be protected if they so choose?

It is still a man’s world.
