The Republican and Religious Right War On WOmen – ‘When ‘Religious Liberty’ Was Used To Deny All Health Care To Women And Not Just Birth Control’

Republicans – Keeping women ‘in their place’.

This won’t happen in this day and age….will it?

1) ‘Republicans not only want to reduce women’s access to abortion care, they’re actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven’t yet’.

2) ‘A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to “accuser.” But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain “victims.”

3) ‘In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care’.

4) ‘Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids’.

5) ‘In Congress, Republicans have a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life’.

6) ‘Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids’ preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working’.

7) ‘And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool’.

8) ‘Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens’.

9) ‘Congress just voted for a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country’.

10) ‘And if that wasn’t enough, Republicans are pushing to eliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program. (For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses’.

Had enough yet?

‘Nearly three decades ago, the Fremont Christian School claimed a similar right to deny health coverage to its female employees, citing its religious beliefs as justification for doing so’.

‘Fremont Christian’s case does bear one important difference from Hobby Lobby’s, however, they did not just want to deny birth control to their employees — they wanted to deny all health coverage to many of the women in their employ’.

‘Fremont was owned by a church which claimed that “in any marriage, the husband is the head of the household and is required to provide for that household.”

‘Because of this belief, they had a very unusual compensation package for their employees — though Fremont offered a health plan to its workers, the plan was only available to “heads of households” which Fremont interpreted to mean single people or married men’.

‘When a woman became married, she was to rely on her husband for health care’.
