Republican lawmakers and candidates remain deaf to the concerns of the millions of women who support access to birth control, but they only can drown out the chorus of voices for so long.
Women everywhere are standing up and having their say, and the Coalition to Protect Women's Health Care is inviting you to have yours. The "I Have A Say" video campaign launch is a direct response to the recent House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform hearing on "religious freedom," where chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) brought together a plethora of white Republican men to testify about women's healthcare. Notably missing from the hearing: pro-choice women.
Women deserve a seat at the table, regardless of the topic at hand--and especially when the 'topic at hand' directly affects the options and choices available to women regarding their own health and well-being.
All women should have access to birth control without a co-pay, no matter where they work. So go ahead, and tell the lawmakers and candidates "I have a say" by recording your 30-second video talking about why birth control is important to you.
