GOP adds anti-contraceptive clause to spending bill

Why restrict the clause to preventative care for women? If it is really a matter of "conscience", why shouldn't it also apply to men and children?

An example of how the media gives preferential treatment to Republicans is CNN's headline for this article : "GOP adds 'conscience clause' to spending bill"

Washington (CNN) - House Republicans have added a measure aimed at limiting contraceptive coverage to the spending bill coming up for a vote Saturday night, a spokesman for Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kansas, told CNN.

A senior House leadership aide confirmed that development.

The so-called “conscience clause” would allow employers and insurers to opt out of preventative care for women which they find objectionable on moral or religious grounds. That prominently includes birth control, which most insurers are required to provide for free under current Obamacare rules.
