Mossburg understands nothing about women who oppose restrictions on contraceptives

I take exception to the illogic displayed in columnist Marta H. Mossburg's recent commentary ("Biology really is destiny," April 25). She clearly understands nothing about women who oppose restrictions on contraceptives. Some of us think a prescription drug package on our health insurance should cover this prescription drug even if our employer thinks it shouldn't.

And since when is a prescription drug plan "free?" Since when did employers belong between patients and their doctors? Since when has it become a "conservative value" that employers should decide what is best for their employees' health?

Ms. Mossburg calls anyone who thinks otherwise an advocate of state-sponsored free love. What is the logical connection between state sponsorship, free love and prescription medications?
