More Lessons on Birth Control from Bill O'Reilly
Poor Bill O'Reilly: he just can't help himself.
After Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius followed medical experts' advice and announced that newly issued insurance plans must cover the full range of FDA-approved contraception without a copay, the Fox News host said the new regulations wouldn't make a difference.
After all, O'Reilly said, "Many women who get pregnant are blasted out of their minds when they have sex. They're not going to use birth control anyway."
Some people might have stopped digging after getting themselves in such a hole, but not O'Reilly! He doubled down, and is now claiming that no-cost birth control will increase unemployment (our thanks to MediaMatters for catching this "lesson.")
Watch it to believe it:
The medical experts at the Institute of Medicine recommended no-cost birth control because it will help millions of women prevent unintended pregnancy, reduce the need for abortion, and lower overall health-care costs.
But Bill O'Reilly was never one to let expert opinion get in his way.
