Tell the Supreme Court: Let Women, Not Bosses, Decide!
The Affordable Care Act guarantees that all new health insurance plans cover FDA approved contraceptives, including the pill and IUDs, without co-pays or deductibles. But over 40 profit-making companies have filed lawsuits against this ACA requirement saying that they have a right to deny this coverage to their employees because of the companies’ so-called religious beliefs. The Supreme Court will now decide whether these companies can take away this important birth control benefit from women. Send a clear message to the Court that companies should not be able to use religion as cover to discriminate against women.
Get Involved with the Women & Climate Change Campaign!
Did you know that the largest generation of young people in human history is about to come of age? Nearly half the world's population is under the age of twenty five. The decisions they make about family planning will make a huge impact on how many of billions of us there are on this planet, and what resources we have to go around. Experts determine that the first natural resource to be affected by climate change will be water.
