    that I will never have and even some that I have some ethical issues with (because I think they may be dangerous to the patient). One of the 'services' that insurance companies provide is to analyze whether a particular treatment is cost-effective and beneficial. Birth control pills fit that criteria. It's also pretty likely that the actuarial case finds that they save money. $10,000 for a typical birth will buy a lot of birth control.

    Would you feel the same if they were campaigning to get insurance companies to drop coverage for organ transplants or blood transfusions because of their religious objections?

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
