Contraceptives & “Religious Freedom”: A Cold Political Calculation

Elizabeth Warren, Democratic Massachusetts Senate Candidate, spoke tonight on Rachel Maddow about the very broad language in the recent contraception legislation introduced in the House. According to Warren, the legislative language is so broad (including “any moral objection” by an employer to cover “any type” of health care costs) that it opens the door wide open for employers to diminish and eliminate health care coverage for employees.

She calls it “a cold political calculation” to further diminish worker’s rights and benefits. She makes a very good point!
