'Blocking Care for Women'
What I love about Hilary Rodham Clinton is that she isn't defeated. She keeps fighting for what she believes in. Along with Cecile Richards she contributed to this NY Times Op-ed piece entitled, "Blocking Care for Women." This piece bares an alarming light on the proposed rule by theDepartment of Human Health and Resources. Essentially, the new bill would allow health care providers the ultimate authority in deciding what is best for a woman. Women may become victim to ideological beliefs that they themselves do not necessarily believe. It denies women the right to choose for themselves what care they want or need, and this doesn't only concern abortion, but sterilization, contraception and many other health care services.
This is truly frightening. More frightening, is we only have five days to speak up. Please do. Speak up.
You don't have to be a feminist to understand that denying women unbiased health care services is wrong.
