According to the National Women's Law Center,  "During the debate over the government shutdown, leaders in the House of Representatives passed legislation to exempt bosses from complying with the part of the Affordable Care Act, that gives women access to preventive services like birth control and well-woman visits with no co-pays or deductibles — if those employers oppose it for "religious or moral" reasons.    This means bosses could impose their religious beliefs on their employees or even block their employees' access to needed health care for vague and undefined "moral" reasons. The Senate rejected the House's plan — but this isn't the first time lawmakers have tried this trick, and it likely won't be the last."

Should your boss decide if and what birth control should be available to you through your plan???  Women need to remain vigilant as this debate continues!
