Help Rep. Tom Price Find "One Woman" Who Has Trouble Affording Her Birth Control
Anti-contraception politicians say the darnedest things.
Yesterday, I told you about Sen. Ron Johnson's claim that "any woman can get free contraceptives."
Now, ThinkProgress brings us this gem from Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.).
Naturally, Rep. Price opposes President Obama's policy ensuring that all women can get contraceptive coverage without a copay. He also voted to defund Planned Parenthood and eliminate funding for contraception three times in 2011, so his anti-contraception record is consistently sad.
But that's no big deal, he says, because there's "not one" woman in America without access to birth control:
Actually, 1 in 3 American women struggles with the high cost of birth control at some point, but Rep. Price claims to have never met even one woman who couldn't afford this basic health care.
Are you a woman who has struggled to afford her birth control? Or do you know someone who has?
Then tweet @RepTomPrice to let him know.
Or, give Rep. Price a call at his office in Marietta, Ga. to introduce yourself: (770) 565-4990.
