Starting August 1st, many women will have access to contraception through their employer or insurer without co-pays or deductibles, ensuring that more women can make health care decisions based on what’s best for them, not their insurance company.
This measure was long overdue, and the President was proud to sign it into law as part of the Affordable Care Act.
Mitt Romney is eager to roll this progress back — not just to the time before Obamacare, but to the time before women were allowed to control their own reproductive health.
On the infamous Blunt Amendment, designed to put women's health care decisions in the hands of their employers for religious reasons, Romney had this to say:
“Of Course I Support The Blunt Amendment”
Later, when he seemed to be getting with the program and changing his views through a tweet that seemingly disavowed this radical position, Romney doubled down on the Blunt amendment again:
“I didn’t understand his question – of course I support the Blunt amendment… Of course, Roy Blunt, who is my liaison to the Senate, is someone I support and of course I support that amendment.
This Mother's Day, show your support for women everywhere and join Women for Obama.
Note: this is the fifth in a series of posts highlighting what President Obama has accomplished for women since last Mother's Day. We'll post one of these a day through Sunday. Here's yesterday's post.
