‘Hobby Lobby on steroids’: House votes to overturn DC law so employers can fire women for using birth controlLate Thursday night, the House of Representatives voted in favor of “H.J.Res. 43: Disapproving the action of the District of Columbia Council in approving the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014.” If enacted, the legislation would make using employer-based health insurance for in vitro fertilization or birth control pills a fireable offense in Washington, D.C.
This is stupid, if the insurance covers it you should be allowed to use it and not be fired for it. Why are they wasting time on this? How about vasectomies or Viagra, bet that is fine with them. Seems like republicans are always going after things that have to do with women. There are some things about republicans I like but stuff like this will most likely keep me from voting for them.
