    "Gives young adults coverage"?

    Sorry folks! But you can't give something, without taking away from someone else.

    Shame on those who except this practice of theft.

    We live in an entitled, and corrupt society.

    @Gary O - you are misrepresenting how the ACA works.

    The ACA is a series of gears designed to increase the number of people with insurance coverage - among those gears are regulations of the insurance industry, the employer mandate, the individual mandate, the Medicaid expansion and the healthcare exchanges. The individual mandate requires all persons to have insurance - and uses the other gears in the system to make that accessible and affordable. The law allows insurers to refuse to pay for treatment in scenarios such as you are proposing (they would say the cancer was diagnosed prior to their policy and therefore treatment was not payable under their policy - although other health issues would be).

    @worf - Research shows 30 to 40 percent of American women will have an abortion. It's a common procedure. Birth control is used by 99% of American women and every dollar spent on birth control saves $5 on later treatment costs. It's a good deal. It's also a morally responsible choice. Refusing to pay for out of wedlock births only harms the child.

    No such thing as single payer. We all get robbed.

    Shameful that we pay for abortions, birth control, drug related illnesses, and out of wed childbirth.

    Where are our values?

    No one should be gaming the system. We should have a single payer health care system. Not insurance. And we all should pay for it. All of us, through taxation.
