Oral contraceptives can be prescribed as a medical necessity for a variety of women’s health conditions, including excessive uterine bleeding. Additionally, surgical procedures like hysterectomies and uterine ablations, which also have the effect of preventing conception, can be medically necessary.

Health care talks need disinfectant

Health care reform compromise talks between the House and Senate bill versions need a heavy dose of disinfectant or, in other words, plenty of sunshine.

During the campaign, candidate Barack Obama touted openness in government. He said, “I’ll make our government open and transparent so that anyone can insure that our business is the people’s business.” Obama continued by saying the late Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once said, “Sunlight is the greatest disinfectant.” Continue reading
