Many Republican men I know object to the Affordable Care Act requirement that health insurance policies cover pregnancy and prenatal care.
"I can't get pregnant," these men say. "Why should I have to pay for a woman's pregnancy?"
Amazingly, many of these men claim to be "pro-life." They don't understand that the ACA requirement is a true "pro-life" public health policy. Being pro-life means supporting mothers-to-be by actually fostering the health of pregnant women and unborn children through our health insurance system.
I can't get pregnant, but I'm happy to support women who choose to be pregnant through my own insurance premiums because I want pregnant women to be healthy and have healthy children. That's honestly being pro-life.
