RAPE.

ANYWAY, ARE THESE LADYLESS

DISCUSSIONS OF THE BATTLE

BETWEEN RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND

FEMALE PREVENTIVE HEALTH CARE

A SEEMING RELIC OF A DYING

AGE?

TO TRUEY UNDERSTAND THE

COMPLEXITIES WOMEN FACE IN

THEIR REPRODUCTIVE CHOICES

LET'S GO TO OUR NEW ROUND

TABLE SEGMENT "JON STEWART'S

EYE ON THE LADIES.">

TONIGHT, OUR PANEL LOOKS AT

THE QUESTION.

IF A RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION

PROVIDES INSURANCE TO ITS

SECULAR EMPLOYEES, SHOULD THAT

PLAN INCLUDE CONTRACEPTION?

JON OLIVER, LET'S START WITH

YOU.

>> NO.

>> JASON JONES.

>> HELL NO.

>> AASIF MANDVI.

>> IT'S NOT MEDICINE.

I'M NOT GOING TO PAY FOR IT.

>> Jon: MOVING ON....

>> NO, ACTUALLY, IN MY

EXPERIENCE....

>> YOU KNOW, I'M JUST GOING

SAY SOMETHING HERE.

>> Jon: JASON JONES.

>> I THINK IT'S GOOD FOR

WOMEN.

>> Jon: HOW SO?

>> I JUST THINK IT'S GOOD FOR

THEM.

IT'S WHAT I THINK.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

>> WHAT?

>> Jon: BUT BIRTH CONTROL

OFTENTIMES HAS MEDICAL

BENEFITS BEYOND CONTRACEPTION.

THE PILL CAN BE A TREATMENT

FOR OVARIAN SIFTS.

>> WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, PLEASE,

JON.

LET'S NOT SULLY A PERFECTLY

PLEASANT CONVERSATION ABOUT

WHAT IS GOOD FOR WOMEN WITH

TALK OF LADY PARTS.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> I BELIEVE THEIR FEMALE

REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM IS

GOVERNED BY....

>> Jon: THE POINT IS, WHY ARE

CONDOMS IN THE HEALTH CARE

BILL IN THE FIRST PLACE?

THEY'RE NOT A MEDICATION.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SWALLOW TWO

EVERYDAY WITH MEALS TO STAVE

OFF FLU.

>> I'M NOT FALLINGú]mAé9ñ THAT

AGAIN.

NO, SIR.

>> THAT WAS BEST CHRISTMAS

PARTY EVER.

GOT YOU.

CHEERS.

>> OKAY.

EXCUSE ME.

YOU GUYS DON'T GET TO DECIDE

WHETHER CONTRACEPTION IS PART

OF PREVENTIVE HEALTH CARE.

EXPERTS HAVE ESTABLISHED THAT

IT IS.

>> YIKES.

LOOKS LIKE IT'S HIGH TIDE

AGAIN.

>> EXCUSE ME.

>> I MADE A CAT NOISE IMPLYING

YOU'RE CURRENTLY GOING THROUGH

EMOTIONAL VOLATILITY KNOWN TO

OCCUR DURING TIME OF WOMEN'S

MENSES.

>> OH, FOR (BEEP) SAKE.

1

>> Jon: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS

ON THIS TOPIC?

>> WELL, HONESTLY I THINK THAT

WE DON'T GET TO DECIDE WHETHER

CONTRACEPTION IS A PART OF

PREVENTIVE HEALTH CARE UNTIL

EXPERTS HAVE ALREADY

ESTABLISHED THAT IT IS.

>> Jon: THAT'S A GOOD POINT.

>> WE WANT TO SEE BOTH SIDES

OF THE ISSUE.

>> OPEN MINDED.

I LIKE THAT IN A MAN.

>> BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM.

>> YEAH, BOOM, BOOM.

I KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW WHY I DIDN'T SAY

SOMETHING LIKE THIS SOONER.

>> Jon: THAT'S ALL THE TIME

WE'VE GOT.

JOIN US NEXT WEEK.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

BREAST.

CAN WE TRUST WOMEN TO SELF

EXAMINE?

>> (BEEP).
