Action: Not My Boss’s Business Bill – Did your Senator(s) vote Against birth control?

If you live in NC, you have one senator who voted for women and one who voted against.  Call your Senator who voted against the “Not my boss’s business” bill.  Tell Sen. Burr you are upset with his vote against birth control coverage, and for corporations.  Give him a quick call (Monday to Friday) at Sen. Burr – (202) 224-3154

Tell the person who answers the phone that you you are very disappointed with his vote on the “Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act.”  You want Burr to vote for birth control coverage (and women) when the bill comes up again.

Bill sponsor Sen. Patty Murray has a one page summary of the bill, formally named “Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act.” at http://www.murray.senate.gov/public/_cache/files/30554052-0f84-485a-babc-ccc04af85bb6/protect-women-s-health-from-corporate-interference-act—one-page-summary—final.pdf

The one pager includes

“Contraception is a core preventive health service for women, coverage of which was guaranteed by the Affordable Care Act. Yet, this June the Supreme Court held in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood v. Burwell, that some corporations can get out of complying with the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive coverage requirement if they have religious beliefs against birth control.”

So the (US) Senate wrote a bill that “would restore the contraceptive coverage requirement guaranteed by the Affordable Care Act and also protect coverage of other health services from employers who want to impose their beliefs on their employees by denying benefits.”

Sen. Burr voted against this bill (and for corporations).
