Dispute develops about cost, payment for birth control insurance

The Obama administration’s alternative scheme for providing insurance coverage for surgical sterilization, contraceptives, and embryocidal drugs is being marketed as cost-free by its supporters.  They argue that the coverage can be provided by insurance companies without additional cost to the employer because it is actually cheaper to offer health insurance with birth control coverage than without it.  Others insist that costs will be passed on to the employer through insurance premiums.

  1. The question is relevant because objecting employers are often concerned that by subsidizing what they consider to be immoral acts they become morally complicit in them.
