Rally for women's rights on Tuesday, March 25! WE ARE FIGHTING TO PROTECT WOMEN’S ACCESS TO PREVENTIVE HEALTH CARE IT’S A WOMAN’S DECISION, NOT THEIR BOSS’S
 
As part of a nationwide day of action, join us in solidarity as we stand and protect the Affordable Care Act’s Birth Control Benefit! Tuesday, March 25 from 12-1pm at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse (Under the archway) Help us let our community know what’s at stake!
 
*On March 25, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a pair of cases-Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. v.Sebelius- that challenge the Affordable Care Act’s birth control benefit; The benefit guarantees that women receive health insurance coverage for all FDA-approved methods of birth control without copays. In each of these cases, lawyers will argue that corporations should have the power to deny employees birth control coverage based on the employer’s personal religious objections.
 
These cases could create a slippery slope, giving for-profit employers the right to use religion to justify interfering with their employees’ own medical preferences. The bottom line is that the choice about whether to use birth control should be between a woman and her doctor — and no employer should be able to interfere with that right!
