If 99% use contraception now, why mandate it?

In announcing his decision to continue his plans for contraception coercion, President Obama smugly asserted, 'Nearly 99 percent of all women have relied on contraception at some point in their lives.' 
While that figure strains credibility, if it were true, where's the huge problem of access to contraception that he says justifies the government's draconian actions? 
If President Obama is intent on government-mandated health care, instead of mandating cheap pills that don't treat a disease and 99 percent of patients can already obtain, wouldn't it make more sense to mandate the provision of lifesaving medicines that patients can't afford or obtain?
