This newly proposed Arizona law, House Bill 2625, would give employers the right to request that women being prescribed birth control pills provide proof that they're using it for non-sexual reasons. The bill also gives employers the ability to opt out of the contraception mandate in their company’s health insurance plan if the employer objects to it. An employer or the government should not be able to dictate whether a woman should receive contraception coverage. Surely, the sexual activity of a woman is her own concern! Our reproductive health should not be up for debate.
It is time to stop patronizing women. Take a stand for the right that a woman has over her own body and say NO to House Bill 2625!
