Controversy Over Free Contraception

August 1, 2011, 5:23 PM

Controversy Over Free Contraception
The Department of Health and Human Services plans to soon offer women a host of preventive health care options at no cost.

The Institute of Medicine developed the new guidelines, which include breastfeeding support, domestic violence counseling, diabetes screening and birth control.

"This should really decrease unwanted pregnancies and termination of unwanted pregnancies," Roosevelt Hospital Dr. Jacques Moritz said.

But many religious and conservative groups don't think the government should offer free contraception.

"We should not be told that preventive care for us is ending pregnancies," Anna Franzonello of Americans United for Life said.

Supporters say the free services, which are set to begin a year from now, will give women a greater chance at being healthy.

Insurance companies are going to end up picking up the cost to provide these services. That means they can spread the cost to customers, which could mean slightly higher premiums for some people.
