Huh? Hillary Clinton just sent out a campaign email claiming “There’s a quiet war going on in America — against the most basic rights of Americans to make their own personal decisions about family planning.”
Whoa. Sounds ominous. Surely legislators are banning contraception sales, or calling for the courts to overturn Griswold v. Connecticut?
Nope. It is just that the Deficit Reduction Act of last year allowed states to cut back coverage there. It is no longer guaranteed.
So the battle cry, “We must be outspoken and determined to support every woman’s right to make her own decisions about family planning,” rings hollow. It is fear mongering.
Women still can make this decision. Hillary just wants the federal government to help them choose contraception.
