Far from truth

Published: Monday, July 14, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

In the July 1 Northwest Herald, front page headlines states “High court strikes down birth control requirement.” This is far from the truth. They only restricted paying for four pills out of 20. If you need them, go buy them. They don’t cost that much. I believe the court did the right thing and most Christians agree. Not all drugs are free. Most people even with a drug plan still have a co-pay.

If women were more responsible and took birth control pills (one of the 16 that are paid for) they wouldn’t need the morning after pill.

To be fair, you did mention on page 3 that it was only the morning after pills, which helps expel a fertilized egg. Most people read headlines and don’t finish the article. This is why you lose readers.
