NARAL Pro-Choice New Hampshire Won't "Bayer" Attacks on Birth Control!

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

Last week, the U.S. Senate rejected the Blunt amendment, which would have allowed bosses to block their employees from getting insurance coverage for birth control.

But, anti-choice politicians in the Granite State couldn't just accept the U.S. Senate's word. On Wednesday, the New Hampshire state House passed a bill that would allow employers to refuse to cover contraception for employees.

Fortunately, New Hampshire women are not ones to let politicians attack their health-care coverage.

NARAL Pro-Choice New Hampshire led a rally outside the statehouse in Concord to stand up against these attacks on contraception.

Activists handed out Bayer aspirin--a reference to comments by a Rick Santorum supporter suggesting that women put Bayer aspirin between their knees as contraception.

Special props to everyone who braved the New Hampshire winter to stand up for coverage of birth control!
