This isn't the 1950s, it's 2012. Why we're debating a woman's access to birth control is beyond me.
Yesterday, the Senate voted down an attempt by the GOP to let employers opt out of providing any medical service they personally objected to -- but the bill was really drafted to let them opt out of covering contraception.
Of course, Democrats in the Senate stood strong.
But right after the vote, the bill's sponsor, Senator Roy Blunt, said, "I'm confident this issue is not over." House Speaker John Boehner immediately backed him up, saying, "It's important for us to win this issue," before hinting that he'd put it to a vote in the House.
This fight is definitely not over -- and we need to stand up for the women and men whose access to care would be denied if the GOP has their way.
Make sure we're ready for the next round. Chip in $5 or more to help Democrats fight back:
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Democratic National Committee

Hey, dipshit - we are NOT discussing a woman's "right" to birth control - we are discussing Osama and you Demonrats forcing people to act against their First Amendment guarantee of being able to worship as they please, and also whether Americans should be forced to pay for other people's birth control.
There is no right to see a doctor, regardless of what you "feel". In America, you have the option of working and getting paid, and paying for insurance or a doctor, or asking for charity from one of the many private organizations that offer help to the indigent.
You have no right to eat, or have a roof over your head at public expense, either. All you have is un-Constitutional laws providing "entitlements" to certain groups of people.
