Last week I found out that my birth control pills are now free, thanks to Obamacare. Today, I found out that I will not have to pay anything for the ultrasound I had the other day.
It’s nice to have insurance, but it also feels good to work for a company that pays for it, and that picks a provider that doesn’t aim to avoid paying for women’s health coverage.
It’s also inspiring to feel like this country is maybe taking baby steps toward recognizing that a woman’s health is an integral part of her being. And of her ability to be able to work, and, therefore, take control of her life and be a full member of society, not someone dependent on the laws made by a room of men telling her what she can and cannot do with her reproductive organs.
I wanted to post “SUCK IT HATERS, MY SLUTTY ABORTION PILLS ARE FREEEEE” on Facebook, but I decided against it. So it goes here instead, more grateful and less confrontational.
