Anti-choice Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) is using a transportation bill to try to undo the entire birth-control coverage policy.
If this amendment passes, it would be a disaster for women and men’s health on many fronts.
It would completely undo the no-cost birth control policy, which will ensure that virtually all women get their prescription birth control covered with no copay.
The amendment would also go so far as to allow insurers to deny coverage for any essential health service they deem immoral. Think about the implications. Women and men would be at the whim of their boss for HIV treatment. Single women who wish to have a child might be refused coverage for prenatal care.
The U.S. Senate could vote on the Blunt amendment at any time. Help us fight for birth-control coverage and basic health-care for women, wherever they work. Urge your Senators to oppose this harmful amendment today.
