Planned Parenthood Action Fund “Alarmed” by Latest SCOTUS Action to Deny Women Birth Control Coverage

NEW YORK, NY - Planned Parenthood Action Fund expressed deep concern about last night’s action by the Supreme Court permitting Wheaton College to not to file a government form stating they object to providing birth control while their case proceed, which could result in even more employers denying their employees access to birth control coverage.  PPAF applauded the strong dissenting opinion.    

“The order issued by the Supreme Court last night is alarming - confirming that many more women may lose access to birth control coverage in the coming months and years if Congress does not act soon.  It is hard to believe that as our nation celebrates Independence Day, women are still fighting for the freedom to access birth control without interference from their boss, politicians, or Supreme Court justices who have never used birth control in their lives.  We applaud Justices Ginsburg, Sotomayor, and Kagan for their powerful and clear dissent on behalf of the 30 million women who are already benefiting from no-copay birth control.  To them and the majority of Americans, birth control is not a controversial issue. Congress must act to protect women’s access to birth control, regardless of the personal views of their employer.”


Planned Parenthood Action Fund is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit membership organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The Action Fund engages in educational and electoral activity, including voter education, grassroots organizing, and legislative advocacy.
