Religous Liberty, Politics and Women’s Health Care

Religous Liberty, Politics and Women’s Health Care

Join us to discuss reactions to the The Susan G. Komen Foundation - Planned Parenthood controversy and the role of politics in women’s health.

Yesterday senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod indicated that the administration may seek some kind of compromise on the new rule which requires religious institutions to include access to contraceptives in their employee health plans. Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney seized on the issue calling the rule an assault on religion. Please join us for a conversation on religious liberty, politics, and women’s health.
