Stop Arizona Bill 2625

March 26, 2012

The Women's Collective, together with the other agencies, wrote members of the Arizona House of Representatives to express concern for the State of Arizona's House Bill 2625.

House Bill 2625 violates the sexual and reproductive rights of women. It repeals a previous Arizona bill that requires health plans covering medication to also cover contraception. Under this law, employers would be permitted to refuse covering any medication that would be used for contraceptive purposes and fire female employees that are using birth control to prevent pregnancy.

This is Arizona your talking about, the chances of this Bill NOT passing is next to nothing. Sadly, AZ is a super-rightwing state, all the State congresspeople are 1) Christians against the use of contraseptives 2) old white men 3) both more than likely, both. I admire what your doing but I don't see a dead bill in the future. D=
