ANALYSIS/OPINION:

As it rejiggers Obamacare, the Trump administration has visited anew the idea that employers opposed to contraception for recreational sex as a matter of religious belief should not be forced to pay for it. Until Obamacare was forced upon an unwelcoming public by a strict party-line vote, men and the women we dated took it upon ourselves to provide the prerequisites for such recreation, including contraception.

It doesn’t cost that much, being less expensive than a monthly smartphone plan, for instance. The calculus changes, of course, if hormonal drugs are required for a medical condition. Judging from the howls of protest at this modest attempt to accommodate a minority religious belief, one would think that feeling amorous were a medical condition.
