I believe this is the spearhead of an attack on all healthcare specific to women.

This may sound farfetched, but the dominionist/quiverfull/patriarchal movement that has control of the R's right now, has been pushing home birthing (no midwive, only the Lord as a helper or an older daughter) as the only REAL Christian way to give birth. No hospitals at all, no doctors during pregnancy or during birth or afterwards. They are also pushing faith healing, but mostly only for females, it's not being pushed for men so much.

I truly believe we will see the R's refuse to pay for annual exams for women, or any preventive care for women like pap smears, breast exams, etc. I also believe they will soon refuse to pay for childbirth, since women for centuries did not go to the doctor to give birth. I think it's just part of the whole misogyny. I think there is tremendous anger against women on the part of some patriarchal males and they want us to SUFFER, really really suffer.
