Better yet, who do these old virgin men in dresses (the bishops) think they are? Having a doctorate does not make you a medical doctor!
How come vasectomies are covered (which the only medical benefit of is pregnancy prevention) but birth control (which has multiple medical benefits other than pregnancy prevention) can't be?
Medication should be between a Patient and Doctor
not Patient and Politician
not Patient and Priest
and not Patient and Uninformed Biased Opinions.
Attack of the Republicans
|all-male Oversight and Government Reform Committee panel|
|Sen. Patty Murray|
Sen. Patty Murray, D-WA., said that while the recent “attacks” on women’s health care seem “swift and sudden,” she believes they are not.
“There is nothing new about these Republican attacks on our family planning decisions. In fact, from the moment they came into power, Republicans in the House of Representatives have been waging a war on women’s health.”
|Sen. Jeanne Shaheen|
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., spoke regarding the all-male Oversight and Government Reform Committee panel
“I’m disappointed. I know it’s a disappointment that’s shared by millions of women across this country,” “I’m saddened that here we are in 2012 and a House committee would hold a hearing on women’s health and deny women the ability to share their perspective.”
The Women Strike Back!
|Sen. Kirstin Gillibrand|
Sen. Kirstin Gillibrand, D-N.Y., promised that Democratic women senators will continue to stand up.
“If our Republican colleagues want to continue to take this issue head on, we will stand here as often as is necessary and draw a line in the sand that the Senate, the women of the Senate specifically, will continue to oppose these attacks on women’s rights and women’s health care.”
|Sen. Barbara Boxer|
Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Ca., said her 16-year-old grandson saw the photo and instantaneously knew something was off. “It’s all dudes,” Boxer said, quoting her grandson.
