If this bill passes the senate then women of Arizona would be forced to provide documentation that birth control is for medical purposes only. The "company" would not be required to cover birth control if it was for prevention of conception. Additionally this bill would give companies the right to fire women if they discovered that she was using a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy

      This bill is objectifying women as baby machines and removing all rights to choose. It resonates in the same tone as the not funny joke about why do we have womens shelters ... because they don't listen. State by state, piece by piece womens rights are being dismantled and if allowed to continue we will be back to being chattels of men.

      This is another instance of the movement toward a plantation economy. Our employers get to tell us whether or not we can have birth control?

      This legislation is illegal and entirely out of line. It is NONE of any employer's business what legal medications any employee is on. That is between the doctor and patient ONLY.

      Because contraception is a woman's right, and it is her own business as to why and how she takes it. It is not the right of her employer to allow or deny the choice of whether or not she has a baby/uses contraception.

      This is an egregious assult on the basic constitional rights of every women in this country; I can assure you it won't stop at birth control or the state of Arizona. I don't even know what country I live in anymore!
