U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Statement on Supreme Court Decision against Women’s Health Care

Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to allow some employers to withhold contraceptive services from their employees’ health coverage.

“I don’t believe that bosses should dictate the personal health decisions of women. Women are more than capable of making their own decisions without consulting politicians or their employer. Today’s ruling puts some bosses between women and basic health care benefits.  It is now the job of Congress and the Administration to ensure that women affected by this decision have equal access to contraceptive coverage options without interference by their employer. Every woman should have access to comprehensive, affordable health coverage and should be able to make the health care decisions that work for her and her family.”
