“Health care” seems like it ought to mean things like recovering from injuries, preventing disease and keeping your body functioning the way it should.
Providing contraception stretches the definition considerably, I think. Requiring health insurance policies to provide free gym membership would be ridiculous, but it would be less ridiculous than requiring them to provide contraception, sterilization, and abortifacient drugs.
As the USCCB say in their response to Obama’s “compromise” on his latest health care diktat, pregnancy is not a disease.
