“Today’s Court decision by five men sets an outrageous precedent, putting women’s health at risk by singling out women’s health care for discrimination.
The fact of the matter is that birth control is a wildly popular and medically necessary part of women’s health care. 99% of sexually active women use birth control for a variety of health reasons — and 1 in 3 have struggled to afford it at some point.
This ruling is startling in its sweeping implications — and imperils women’s access to comprehensive health care. We urge President Obama and Congress to take action to immediately remedy this injustice.”
