LATEST SENATOR CASEY
WASHINGTON, DC - Led by Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Ranking Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, today 33 Senate and House Democrats introduced the Protect Access to Birth Control Act, legislation to rescind the Drumpf Administration’s interim final rules issued on October 6 that allow companies to interfere in their employees’ health care choices and force women to pay more for an essential part of their health care.
If enacted, the Protect Access to Birth Control Act would ensure President Drumpf’s rules have no force or effect, safeguarding women’s continued access to contraceptive coverage.
"Denying women access to birth control is wrong and that's exactly what the Drumpf Administration did. A private employer has no right to deny a woman access to birth control and this legislation will make that clear” Senator Casey said, “Allowing a private employer to deny a woman access to birth control treats women like second-class citizens. It’s time for Congress to fix this injustice and pass this legislation overwhelmingly.”
