<I have had this coverage at three of my last four employers over the last 12 years. >

Me too. It's just a subscription so there is the co-pay. Most doctors prescribe for 6 months so we are talking something like 20 bucks/year to remain childless. Now that is value for your money. Even at full price it is cheap.

Of course there are other methods (IUD, diaphragm, patches etc.) that I don't know about coverage on. And things like contraceptive jellies, sponges, and condom--Most I assume are purchased over the counter as a retail item. But I do believe that those can be itemized as a pre-tax medical benefit. Most people I would bet don't both.

I think I need more info on what is actually being "taken away" here before I determine if Mr. Bush is being "right-wing conservative special interest group stingy."
