11. It is a human right - its also a health issue and right to protecting our health....

I suffer from severe anemia due to uterine fibroid tumors....my anemia has been so bad that I have been close to needing a blood transfusion and am exhausted, losing hair and other health issues. They cant operate and remove them without the risk of a hysterectomy which my doctor doesnt want to have to do, its major surgery with other risks associated for me. So, the medical treatment is that I was just placed on birth control pills or as its also known hormone therapy. So far, it looks good. It is for me a health issue. But why shouldnt I have access to this medication and have it covered by health insurance when the men out there can get Viagra and Cialis covered? But also, why shouldnt my daughters and all women be able to have protection and control over their reproductive health? Dont we also have a moral responsibility to protecting our population and the planets resources?
