If your goal is to reduce abortions, then it makes sense allowing your employees to use things that keep them from getting pregnant so they don’t need abortions.
This common sense approach, though, is lost on most right-wingers — especially the anti-choice groups in Washington D.C., who have vowed to ignore a non-discrimination law and fire women if they use birth control.
The law that went into effect on May 2, called the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014 (RHNDA), made it illegal for employers to fire people who use birth control. The House of Representatives, already having solved all the major problems in the country, voted to overturn it on April 30, but since they can’t get the approval of the President or Senate, their bill isn’t going anywhere.
But that’s not good enough for the fascist organizations that label themselves “pro-life.” They’re going to fire people anyway.
Published by the Heritage Foundation — a right-wing money sink — their letter declares the RHNDA as “unprecedented and illegal.”
The anti-freedom organizations who support this organ-stealing tripe include groups like the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, Americans United for Life, March for Life, Concerned Women against Women, and the Susan B Anthony List.
The proponents for state-enforced organ redistribution said in the letter, “We are nonsectarian pro-life organizations and religious ministries that make the nation’s capital our home. We will not abandon the purpose of our organizations in order to comply with this illegal and unjust law. We will vigorously resist any effort under RHNDA to violate our constitutionally protected fundamental rights.”
And this is all the Supreme Court’s fault. Just remember this when you vote in November of 2016; several judges will be retiring soon, and if there’s a Republican in office when they go, kiss this country good-bye.
