Take a moment to read my Newsweek piece on what Mike Huckabee wants to take away from women.

What Today’s Order Means & the Dangerous Consequences that could be Down the Road

Aside from his very offensive view of women’s reproductive healthcare needs, Governor Huckabee should also get his facts straight. The Affordable Care Act’s policy guarantees birth control coverage on the private insurance that women pay for through their own premiums or receive as compensation for working for their employers. Moreover, it’s not only the right thing to do for our government to subsidize birth control for our poorest sisters through programs like Title X, but a smart policy that saves taxpayers money in the long run. As the Guttmacher Institute study shows, “public expenditures for family planning care not only help women to achieve their childbearing goals, but they also save public dollars: our calculations indicate that for every $1 spent, $4.02 is saved.”

This week we have the privilege of commemorating and reflecting upon the history of two great American social justice movements. Take a moment to read my thoughts on the interrelatedness of #MLKDay and #RoeAt41.

Proud of California for leading the way, but there is still so much work ahead to ensure all women have safe and affordable access to reproductive health care. Check out NARAL’s #WhoDecides report to learn more.
