And while of course this is not information most landlords or employers have access to, under SB 5 they could ask women what forms of reproductive health care they are using.

My comment seems to have vanished ...
Trying again -

The US is going backwards FAST. Make America petty and chauvinist again …

What kind of democracy is it where a body of fundamentalist males (and perhaps a very few females) can legally decide and remove women’s rights to control their own bodies’ reproductive behaviour?

Two questions:

Will there be any law that prevents discrimination in employment of women because of the RISK of their falling pregnant, needing maternity leave & time off to take care of sick children?
A risk greatly increased by intervention that prevents them from avoiding unwanted pregnancies …

And

Will vasectomised males be ineligible for employment because of THEIR contraceptive choice?????

Let's see if I have this right...the GOPTP, Trump and all of his appointees are fighting wars not only in the Middle East, but there's a war on all wildlife across America, a war on all of the homeless, many vets included here, a war on all minorities whether born here or not, a war on protesters, a war on freedom of speech and all the other Bill of Rights we once had, a war on our children's and grandchildren's education, a war on all healthcare for the poor and seniors, a war on seniors, a war on the poor, a war on the working families of America, a war on religious freedoms, a war on our Public Lands and National Monuments, a war of water, land and air - allowing them to be polluted beyond use, a war on the food we eat, especially organic, a war on Social Security, Disability/handicapped, and a war on women. Is there anything our illustrious government is not warring on...rhetorical. Of course, I signed...Thanx Dandelion.

this is another invasion of privacy. just like employers asking for our e-mail addresses and favorite websites and other internet use information, despite it is an at home activity.

This is totally insane when employers can tell us what we can and can't do. Women have rights. I signed the petition yesterday. Thanks Dandelion

Thanks GmSheila - and after all that there is still a group of people who think everything is just wonderful.

Women's right to healthcare choices must be protected! It is not the business of anybody in the Statehouse or anywhere else to interfere with matters that are the business of the woman and her doctor. Imposing penalties on women is particularly outrageous. The woman in the video is correct in calling this hogwash. Thanks Dandelion.

Signed the petition. Thanks Freya.

And it's the GOP that keeps calling for smaller government until it comes to women's health care then they are all up in the women's business.

This is truly one of the scariest things I have ever heard of. GGM Sheila-you are absolutely right that America-it's people and landare under attack in every way possible. And, as Dandelion said, what is even crazier is that there are people who think this is OK!

The way to fight this particular fight against women is to go after men in the same vein. Pass a law forbidding insurance for paying for Viagra for men.
