I’m Confused

Why is it that people are so willing to jump onto the “Let’s make insurance companies cover the pill because it should be a woman’s right to have that option” bandwagon, yet paid maternity leave is almost non-existent in the United States?  Call me closed-minded or oppressed, but there are about twenty things I care about in relation to women’s rights instead of insurance coverage of contraceptives–maternity leave being just one of them–because, believe it or not, there are non-medicinal, effective ways to plan a family without putting the cost burden on insurance companies or people’s consciences.
