Yet another reason for health care reform

A recent study has found that due to the recession, women are more concerned than ever about family planning — that is, many are re-considering the number of children they had been planning to have and/or increasing their spacing between children in order to be more financially secure for when their families grow again. At the same time, however, women are finding it increasingly more difficult to afford their out-of-pocket expenses for effective forms of birth control, making it more likely that they will have accidental/unplanned pregnancies due to the financial burden of, say, filling oral contraceptive prescriptions.

Surely I am not the only one who senses the horrible irony of THAT situation??
