Today's Lincoln paper brings news of another court-aided setback for children as we continue the march towards oblivion.
Union Pacific Railroad discriminated against women by not covering contraceptives in its health care plan, a federal judge has ruled.

U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp ruled in a class-action lawsuit that claimed the company discriminated by providing a range of preventive health benefits — including impotence drugs — but no contraceptive care."

Union Pacific's policy of excluding prescription contraceptives and related outpatient services from its plans" is discriminatory "because it treats medical care women need to prevent pregnancy less favorably than it treats medical care needed to prevent other medical conditions that are no greater threat to employees' health than is pregnancy," Smith-Camp wrote.

So basically, pregnancy is to be treated as just another "medical condition." Nothing more and nothing less. You know, I'm among the many who say that men long ago had abdicated their roles as providers and leaders in their families and communities through their throwing away of morals and discipline. Women are now doing the same sort of abdication when it comes to being blessed with the ability to bring life into our world. What greater gift outside of our lives have we received? What greater gift are we throwing away?

The vile and tiresome Chris Funk of PP was elated of course, wrapping herself in the "flag" of court-mandated directives.
"This is a tremendous victory for women all over the country," said Chris Funk, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Nebraska & Council Bluffs. "It is time that employers such as Union Pacific realize that contraception is essential health care and must be included in all worker health plans in order to support women's health."

Supporting women's health is allowing them to kill babies and not be responsible for their actions, eh?

No babies were available or alive to comment on efforts to support THEIR health.
