Birth Control under Attack in Congress
Tell your Member of Congress that you expect him or her to stand up for you – not right-wing pharmacies that oppose birth control.
On July 25, a U.S. House of Representatives committee held a hearing on whether pharmacies should be allowed to refuse to fill women’s prescriptions. Anti-choice Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told a witness, who had been denied birth control and emergency contraception by her pharmacist, that she had no “right” to her prescriptions - she only believed she did. Anti-choice Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R-CO) told a witness whose prescription had also been rejected by a hostile pharmacist, that her “minor inconvenience” – that is, risking an unintended pregnancy – was nothing compared to the “conscience” of a pharmacist.

What idiots! Any of those politicians willing to adopt any of the babies born to mothers and fathers who don't want them after they couldn't get birth control from Big Pharma?
