Your comment about insurance not paying for the
pill is not entirely true. My insurance did pay for the pill. (with the usual $5 copay) So some of them do. The reason some don't pay for the pill is because of the failure rate of birth control. They wouldn't pay for my depo shot. But it is fairly new and relativly expensive. But I think if people started putting pressure on their employers to get insurance companies that will pay for the pill.
As for the comment regarding tubal reversal, I dont think that the insurance companies should pay. It was the womens decision to have this procedure done in the first place. You go into this surgery with the mind set of never having any more babies. Ever! If a women is not 110% sure that she wants this procedure done, then she should use another form of birth control such as depo or an IUD.

CPTwomen members have testified in front of the IL and CA Court, the IL Gov. Task Force, the Sunset Review Committee, (Senator Liz Figueroa), NOW, and more. What occurred has been made a matter of public record. The CPTwomen are making public the issues which millions of other women have faced in silence. Issues such as women are not informed at the time of their tubal ligation that there is a risk of hormonal imbalance occurring. For the CPTwomen to continue its mission to move this issue to the forefront of government, we must ask for a small contribution/subscription fee from all those who wish to communicate with us and participate at the Coalition's Bulletin Board
