For fuck's sake, Arizona:
Yesterday, a Senate Judiciary Committee endorsed Republican Debbie Lesko's HB2625 by a vote of 6-2, which would allow an employer to request proof that a woman using insurance to buy birth control was being prescribed the birth control for reasons other than not wanting to get pregnant. It's all about freedom, she said, echoing everyone who thinks there's nothing ironic about claiming that a country that's "free" allows people's bosses to dictate what medical care is available to them through insurance. First amendment. The constitution. Rights of religious people to practice the treasured tenets of their faiths, the tenets that dictate that religious people get to tell everyone who is not of faith how they're supposed to live, and the freedom to have that faith enforced by law. Freedom®.
Using contraceptives like the pill is the norm—even among devoutly religious women—so legislation like this is an attack on all women, not just us progressive, Planned-Parenthood-humping whores who reportedly pop Plan B like it was a multivitamin.
Plus, it can't possibly be legal to require women to justify their medications to their employers.
It breaks my brain that legislators can self-justify such a huge waste of time and government resources to blatantly attack working women, their sexual autonomy, and their constitutional right to privacy. Sometimes I think back to the good old days, when the fight about reproductive healthcare basically meant shouting about abortion, and I get wistful.
