You don’t seem to realize what “Employer Provided Healthcare” is. So, we have this system in America where Employers are required to provide healthcare plans for their employees. These healthcare plans are often NOT free, but rather subsidized. (I pay about $50 a month for mine.) See, companies will help with the premiums, but employees still make the monthly payments.
So, you see, I DO pay for my birth control (And my migraine medication.) I pay for it through the insurance payments I make with my employers.
Many people rely on this kind of employer provided health insurance because, in America, healthcare is not cheap. Insurance can be expensive, and healthcare without insurance can be prohibitively so.
Now, as for you ad hominem charge that I can’t know about being “a responsible adult” and “an idiot” (nice ableism there) because I’m a feminist who believes that in a system where workers are forced to rely on their employers for health care, that employers should have to actually provide healthcare….well. I shouldn’t really HAVE to explain why this is a rather silly thing so say. But, ya know, I AM a certified public school teacher with a full time job (Middle school English, Language Arts, and Reading in fact), and I pay all these fun insurance payments and loan payments and taxes. I even have a retirement plan! So, no, I’m not dodging my adult responsibilities by believing that people are entitled to the healthcare they need to have a good quality of life.
Thanks for the ask!
