Dr Ciara Kelly: People have rights, religious beliefs do not
The law is being changed in the US so your employer can exclude cover for contraception on your health insurance as part of your employment package - on moral grounds - based on their personal religious beliefs.
Can we think about that for a moment? Your boss, because he's a devout Christian or indeed Muslim or any other religion that doesn't approve of women being sexually active, can now exclude your access to contraception - so you can presumably either pay for it yourself or do without it.
And bear in mind the outrageous cost of accessing healthcare in the States if you aren't covered under health insurance. To pay to see a doctor to have the pill prescribed will cost you several hundred dollars. If you wanted something like an IUD or a coil fitted for longer term protection, it might run into thousands.
