A panel on MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” on Saturday dreamed of women having the costs of freezing their eggs covered under the Affordable Care Act during a discussion on Facebook and Apple agreeing to cover the costs of such a procedure.
Harris-Perry stated, “we do talk about choice a lot, the language of those on the reproductive justice side tends to be…pro-choice. But choice is only relevant within, sort of, having the resources to do so, and the fact is that for most people reproductive technologies are so overwhelmingly expensive that there is no choice.”
She then raised the possibility of “whether or not we could ever imagine this going from perk to ACA basic coverage, for example,” to which some of the panelists responded, “that would be great,” and “that’s what I’m hoping for.”
