WARREN: I’m Elizabeth Warren. A few days ago, I watched a congressional hearing about birth control, where the panel of experts did not include even one woman. Wow, Washington really doesn’t get it. Now the senate is going to vote on a new law proposed by Republicans that allows your employer or insurance company to claim a vague moral conviction to deny you contraception or any healthcare coverage they want. This new law threatens women’s access to contraception, mammograms, even maternity care. It’s just plain wrong. This isn’t about the rights of religious institutions. We must protect those rights. President Obama already made sure religious institutions can’t be forced to cover birth control. But the President also made sure that women can get the care they need. That’s the right approach. I’m Elizabeth Warren, candidate for the U.S. Senate, I approve this message. I hope you’ll stand with me at ElizabethWarren.com.
