Task Force responds to Obama administration’s announcement on contraceptive services

February 10, 2012

The Task Force responded to the Obama administration’s announcement today  that it will require insurance companies, rather than employers, to provide free contraceptive services to employees at religious institutions.

Task Force Executive Director Rea Carey says:

It is critical that all women have access to contraceptive services, which is vital to their overall and optimum health. Women’s health and well-being are the key concerns here. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force staunchly supports reproductive justice and freedom. The ongoing struggle for LGBT rights and reproductive freedom is a shared struggle that ultimately comes down to people’s fundamental right to control their own bodies and lives. We firmly stand with our partners in the reproductive rights community in promoting women’s health and protecting reproductive health choices.
