Re: “The war on women in Arkansas

And this is a great piece! Thank you Leslie!

That's what I actually came here to say. But I let myself get distracted by a troll.

Call you legislators; call Beebe. Keep the pressure on and tell them not to support these cruel and unconstitutional bills.

Re: “The war on women in Arkansas

Yes, B Rock. Making contraception more accessible is exactly the same as forcing people to use it. Exactly the same!

I know you will reject this, because it's factual, but I'll try to explain it.

Most people get their insurance through their employment. This will continue to be true even after Obamacare is fully implemented. Insurance is part of an employee's total compensation. Employees earn insurance coverage through their labor, just as they earn wages. In most cases, employees also contribute some of their wages towards insurance coverage.

An employer has no right to dictate how their employee uses their own compensation, whether it's wages or insurance coverage. Due to the preventative care mandate of Obamacare, all people covered by insurance now have the option of accessing prescription contraception without copay. An employer has no right to dictate how an employee uses their insurance.

Supporting a decision and making options more available is not the same thing as mandating a particular decision. All of these anti-abortion bills give the state the power to make decisions for women.

The state. Making decisions. For women, about what happens inside our bodies. That's the exact opposite of freedom and liberty.
