Contraception is basic health care for many people, and an essential part of family planning, agency and bodily autonomy. But 100 entities, the “Dirty 100,” including religious organizations, for-profit companies and not-for-profit organizations, think otherwise. These groups and companies, including Hobby Lobby, Eden Foods and the University of Notre Dame, are suing to block the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act.
Now is the time to take action. Sign this petition from NOW National and send a message to the “Dirty 100.” Let them know that you make your own healthcare decisions.
Not your boss. Not some politician. You.
“I refuse to support businesses, nonprofits, and religious entities that have decided that their personal beliefs are more important than the rights of their employees. Birth control is a vital – and common – aspect of women’s reproductive healthcare. Ninety-nine percent of sexually active women in the United States have used birth control at some point in their lives. I do not believe that the religious beliefs of an employer trump the religious freedoms and bodily autonomy of their company’s employees. As such, I cannot support businesses, nonprofits, and religious entities that do not respect the reproductive rights of their employees.”
