HCAN Partner Missouri Progressive Vote Coalition Protests Blunt Amendment

HCAN partner Missouri Progressive Vote Coalition joined with the Communications Workers of America and NARAL yesterday outside the office of Senator Roy Blunt to demand access to birth control. Blunt recently introduced an amendment in the health reform law that would take away women’s access to birth control and contraception by giving employers the option to deny any care to which they have moral objetions.

Blunt’s amendment would go well beyond allowing religiously affiliated employers to limit contraception but would extend to any employer with objections to virtually any kind of medical care. The Missouri groups demanded that Senator Blunt put an end to his efforts to pursue this misguided policy.
