Take Action: Oppose H.R. 3897 to Protect Birth Control Access
Opposition forces are targeting Congress with a two-prong strategy to make changes to the Obama administration’s birth control policy that requires all health plans under the Affordable Care Act to provide contraceptive coverage without co-pays or deductibles. Just days after Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 2012” in the Senate, Representative Steve Chabot (R-OH) introduced the House version, H.R. 3897. The bill aims to alter the President’s contraceptive coverage policy by allowing any employer to deny contraceptive coverage if it is against the employer’s religious or moral beliefs.
