Going to New Hampshire? Bring Your Own Birth Control!

| | Comments (12) | TrackBacks (0)

Another state, another attack on women's health care. The latest outrage comes from New Hampshire, where the state's Executive Council last month rejected a contract with Planned Parenthood

The result: the Granite State's six Planned Parenthood clinics have now stopped providing birth control.

But that's no problem, according to Raymond Wieczorek, one of the council members who voted to end the contract. He had this to say about women who use contraception:

If they want to have a good time, why not let them pay for it?

As a reminder to Councilor Wieczorek, 98 percent of American women use birth control during their lifetime. And one in three will struggle with the high cost of prescription contraception.

Comments like these send your blood pressure to Mt. Washington-level heights? As NARAL Pro-Choice New Hampshire counters Wieczorek's comments on the ground, there's something you can do about it.
