Comment of Senator Patrick Leahy on White House's Modification of Contraceptive Coverage Under Health Insurance Reform
WASHINGTON, Feb. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following are the comments of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) on the White House's modification of contraceptive coverage under health insurance reform:
"The Obama Administration listened to these concerns, made further accommodations and has struck a reasonable balance. It is a solution that continues to recognize the obvious truth that women have a right to affordable and comprehensive health care, just as men do. One thing we all should agree on is that availability of birth control has improved women's health and reduced the number of teen pregnancies and the rates of abortion. This should be applauded."
