Tue, 01 Oct 2013 00:00:00 -0400 Over two years ago, the federal Department of Health and Human Services unveiled the HHS mandate, a regulation requiring private health insurance to cover all FDA-approved contraceptive and sterilization methods, including the emergency contraceptives that cause early abortions by acting (as the FDA confirms) to prevent an embryo from implanting in the womb. The mandate co-opts the existing employer-insurance system to encourage greater use of contraception and sterilization. This, the government asserts, will improve the health of women and their children and put women on a more equal footing with men.
