HB 730 Protest

We like watching Mad Men, but don't want to live in it!

HB 730 is a very regressive measure that would limit women's access to reproductive healthcare.  In fact, as originally written, the bill would have allowed any employer with a moral objection to remove contraceptive coverage from their health plans.  This measure is yet another effort by NC politicians to insert themselves in the confidential relationship between a woman and her doctor.

In response to this legislation, we organized a protest at the General Assembly on Wednesday.
