With the passage of the national health-care bill, the abortion debate is back in a big way. Apparently assurances that no federal money would fund the procedure were not enough. As of today, lawmakers in at least six states are pushing legislation to block abortion coverage in some health plans. Even if you hate abortion, does it not rankle that there is no equivalent selective targeting for men? Viagra is covered, even for sex offenders. Under this punitive system, women are being forced to pay too hefty a price.
