Some Republicans, like Rep. John Shimkus of IL, have argued that keeping essential benefits forces men to pay for prenatal care and benefits for women. (It's also worth pointing out that vasectomies are now considered an essential benefit in most states-yet, women haven't complained about "having to purchase" them.)
